If you’re seeking to gain a straight smile but don’t want to wear highly visible braces, then ask Dr. Doug Jensen about lingual braces. He places these braces on the back of your teeth so he can align your smile quite literally without anyone noticing that you are wearing braces. Schedule an appointment at Jensen Orthodontic Arts if you’d like to investigate lingual braces further.
The word “lingual” means “tongue,” referring to the side of the tooth we place lingual braces on. We will take impressions of your teeth which are sent to a lab where they create customized brackets for your lingual braces. Like traditional braces, these lingual ones will shift your teeth into a new position using gentle pressure forces. The length of your treatment time can last from 18–36 months depending on the severity of your malocclusion problem. If you want a straight smile but don’t want to wear visible braces, then call our McKinney, Texas, office and ask about our lingual braces.
