Are you interested in aligning your teeth but you’re too afraid to have metal braces taking the beauty away from your smile? If so, our skilled orthodontist, Dr. Doug Jensen, has some good news for you: You can achieve the straight and beautiful smile you deserve with an almost invisible orthodontic appliance! That appliance is lingual braces.
Lingual braces are just like traditional braces, except instead of the metal brackets being cemented to the front surfaces of the teeth, they’re cemented to the back surfaces of the teeth. That’s right! The lingual braces will align your teeth from the back. There, they are connected with a wire and often adjusted to apply pressure to the teeth to shift and move them. This is why lingual braces could be the perfect treatment for you! You can align your teeth without affecting your appearance.
Now, you have to be the right candidate in order to use this treatment. Typically, you will need longer teeth so you will have room to place the brackets. You will also need to only have minor bite and alignment problems, rather than major problems. To find out if you’re the right candidate, schedule a consultation today! Our orthodontist will be happy to meet with you, examine your smile and determine if this is the right treatment for you.
