Hidden lingual braces
Today, many orthodontic patients are between 20 and 60 years old. A mouth filled with conspicuous metal tracks is no longer a worry thanks to lingual braces that are attached to the backs of your teeth where no one can see them. For most people, because the only wires that are wrapped around entire teeth are on the back molars, the braces are completely invisible from the sides as well as the front!
Orthodontic treatments involve gently pushing your teeth into place over a period of months or years and there are many excellent reasons for adults to consider lingual orthodontic treatment to achieve their ideal smile:
- Crowded and crooked teeth influence appearance and can affect self-confidence in business or social situations. Some people even avoid smiling.
- Crooked teeth can affect the alignment of the bones in your jaw, causing tension and pain.
- Crowded teeth are harder to brush and floss. They are more vulnerable to tooth decay and gum disease.
- Poorly aligned teeth wear down faster and affect your bite. This can make chewing difficult.
