Lingual Hidden braces
Lingual appliances allow us to straighten your teeth with braces that are not visible. The reason for this is that they are placed on the inner surface of your teeth and therefore are completely invisible from the outside. As with normal labial appliances (placed on the front of the teeth) there are many different types of bracket(s) systems available. At Only Orthodontics, we favour the Incognito lingual appliance system.
Generally, treatment with lingual braces need take no longer than conventional fixed braces and the results can be just as good. Although mostly used for adults they can be used from the mid-teens as well. Treatment with lingual braces is always more expensive than with conventional braces because of the high laboratory cost in manufacturing of the braces and the extra time and expertise needed for their successful management. Further information about the Incognito system can be obtained from hiddenbraces.co.uk.
