Although children and teenagers commonly require orthodontic treatment to correct developmental problems with their teeth, an increasing number of adults are now also seeking treatment. This can be to correct problems that were not treated in the past or to improve the appearance and function of their teeth.
Lingual braces are the latest method of moving teeth invisibly. They are an excellent system for aligning teeth at the same time as delivering
improvements to your bite.
The word lingual comes from ‘lingua’, the Latin word for tongue, to describe orthodontic brackets fitted behind teeth instead of on the
front surfaces. While the patient can feel the brackets with their tongue and, in the early days of treatment, may find eating and speaking a
little challenging, no-one can see the braces.
