Lingual Braces

Advancements in orthodontic treatments give today’s dental patients so many more options to choose from when it comes to teeth straightening methods. Dr. Vo knows that every person is different, and that’s why she believes in providing as many alternative methods as possible to her patients throughout the Boerne, TX, area. One treatment option that has become increasingly popular over the past few years are lingual braces.

What Are Lingual Braces?

Lingual braces are very similar to traditional metal braces with one important exception: lingual braces are attached to the back side of teeth instead of the front side. They work in the same way as traditional braces – by applying constant, gentle pressure on the teeth over the course of many months, encouraging the teeth to move into straighter positions. The timeframe for lingual braces is also similar to regular metal braces, ranging from 18 to 36 months.

The Procedure Involved in Getting Lingual Braces

The process of getting lingual braces begins with Dr. Vo taking an impression of the patient’s teeth, which is then used by a dental lab to create brackets. Once the brackets are ready, Dr. Vo follows the steps necessary to cement a bracket to the back of each tooth.

INBRACE Lingual Braces

At Complete Dental Studio, we use INBRACE lingual braces. There are several reasons why this teeth-straightening method has gained popularity. The biggest advantage of lingual braces, as you might guess, is that they’re not visible to other people. INBRACE Smartwires make it possible for the wearer to brush and floss as he or she normally would, as opposed to traditional braces, which often require specialized oral hygiene instruments and a certain level of extra effort to thoroughly clean the teeth and gums. And, unlike some other lingual braces, INBRACE is surprisingly affordable.

Of course, lingual braces may not be the right choice for everyone. After performing an oral exam, Dr. Vo can tell you whether you’re a good candidate for this teeth-straightening method.
