If you’re seeking to gain a straight smile but are dead set against braces on the outside, then ask Dr. Doug Jensen about lingual braces. He places these braces on the tongue side 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 braces will shift your teeth into a new position using gentle pressure forces. The length of your treatment time can last from 12-24 months depending on the severity of your problem. If you desire a straight smile but don’t want to wear braces you can see, then call our McKinney, Texas, office and ask about lingual braces.
