Lingual Braces



Best Lingual Braces in Dubai

Metal braces are no longer the sole way to straighten a patient’s teeth, thanks to current aesthetic dentistry. Nowadays, there are fewer apparent treatment methods available that will not impact the appearance of the patient’s smile or facial features. If the idea of wearing traditional metal braces does not appeal to the patient, lingual braces are an excellent alternative treatment choice.

Lingual braces, which are made up of tiny metal brackets and archwires, function similarly to regular braces. They use constant pressure to softly and progressively straighten teeth, which can assist with gaps, overcrowding, rotated teeth, and bite issues. Teeth will seem correctly set and aligned after treatment and will keep developing more naturally. Lingual braces, on the other hand, are glued to the back of the teeth, unlike regular braces. The brackets are specially designed to accommodate each patient’s unique form of teeth. Lingual braces are completely invisible to others while straightening teeth and creating a healthy smile, and they function just as well as regular braces.

Lingual braces are an excellent option for transparent aligners for those who prefer a more modest approach to treatment. Moreover, lingual braces are significantly more successful than aligners for complicated motions such as correcting rotations, adjusting tooth heights, and closing spacing. Hidden braces can also produce quick results and are less prone to cause issues like decay and decalcification than regular braces. Any discoloration that happens will be towards the back of the teeth, hidden from view.

Which Dental Cases Can Lingual Braces Treat?

An extreme vertical overlapping of the upper teeth over the lower teeth is known as a deep bite. Not only is this a cosmetic issue, but it can also have a negative impact on one’s oral health since brushing and cleaning become tough. Lingual braces are one of the most effective treatments for difficult orthodontic issues such as an overbite, crossbite, crowded teeth, and large gaps between teeth. Likewise, when lingual braces are compared to Invisalign removable aligners, lingual braces may cure a wider spectrum of orthodontic issues.

What are the Advantages of Lingual Braces?

Compared to traditional fixed metal brackets or Invisalign aligners, lingual braces have several advantages: Lingual braces are extremely unnoticeable.

Lingual braces are placed on the interior of your teeth, so only the patient and the orthodontist can see them. They’re probably the most undetectable brace available.

Lingual braces are appropriate for people of all ages:

Lingual braces are more popular among adults. However, lingual orthodontics can assist children, teenagers, and adults of all ages.

Any malocclusion can be corrected with lingual braces:

There are various forms of malocclusions, each of which can be properly corrected with lingual braces. Lingual braces can straighten the patient’s smile and give them a perfect occlusion. Whether they have crowded teeth, spacing, an open bite, an overbite, or missing teeth.

The front of patients’ teeth will not be permanently damaged by lingual braces:

There should be no harm to the patient’s teeth if they take adequate care of them throughout their orthodontic treatment. Regardless of the brace they pick. However, if any damage occurs as a result of eating the incorrect foods or not brushing thoroughly enough throughout the treatment, the results of lingual braces will not be visible to others.

You can observe the effects as they happen with lingual braces:

While the patient is still wearing their braces, they may begin to experience the advantages of their therapy. It also means that near the conclusion of their treatment, their orthodontist may assess their smile and make any required adjustments to give them the greatest final outcome.

What are the Main Differences Between Traditional Braces and Lingual Braces?

Lingual braces are comparable in appearance to traditional metal and ceramic braces. Instead of being affixed to the front surfaces of the teeth, they are bonded to the inside or “lingual” surfaces of the teeth, which distinguishes them from traditional braces. As a result, lingual braces are nearly undetectable. Compared to traditional braces, lingual braces provide improved aesthetics and ease.


Traditional Braces

Traditional Braces

Because of their cost and quick results, these braces have been a popular choice for years. Traditional braces consist of a metal bracket attached to the teeth and a flexible metal wire connecting them. This wire exerts pressure on the teeth, causing them to move into place.
Apart from their efficiency, the nicest thing about traditional metal braces is that they are the most affordable orthodontic treatment option. Teenagers also like the option of using colored rubber bands to surround each bracket to personalize their braces.

Lingual Braces

Traditional metal braces are one of the most popular reasons for teens and adults to forgo orthodontic treatment because they are distracting and unappealing. They do, however, desire straighter teeth. Some treatments, such as Incognito lingual braces, have emerged throughout the years. Lingual orthodontic treatments move your teeth more gently since the brackets are attached to the tongue side of your teeth rather than the lip side.
Lingual and traditional braces require the same X-rays, pictures, and molds as traditional braces, including the removal of wisdom teeth or teeth that are very crowded. Unlike metal braces, every tooth must have wires and brackets installed. Each bracket is bonded to the inside surfaces of your teeth, and elastics and wires are utilized in the same way as traditional braces, except they are hidden from view. Cleaning teeth with both lingual and traditional braces takes longer.
Lingual braces require specialized technical knowledge and training, which contributes to the increased cost. The true benefit of lingual braces is that they are nearly unnoticeable. When it comes to straightening your teeth, lingual braces are a visually appealing and successful alternative.
