Lingual Braces

Lingual Braces

Do you have teeth that are out of alignment? Perhaps you have gaps between your teeth that need to be addressed? At Crown Dental we offer a number of orthodontic solutions that have been designed to meet the unique needs of each of our patients.

Lingual braces are one of the options that we can offer to our patients who are looking for an orthodontic solution.

What are lingual braces?

Get results you love

Lingual braces a set of braces or orthodontic treatment which are attached behind teeth. They work to adjust the teeth with gradual pressure in much the same way that the traditional metal fitted braces do. The key different here is that these are essentially incognito braces as they are invisible from the front. Because the brackets and the wires are placed on the inside of the teeth, they are not visible when you smile.

Other brace systems make the colour of the ceramic braces the same shade as teeth in order to get a discreet look to the braces, but with lingual braces you do not need to worry about this. Lingual braces are an orthodontic solution that offers more aesthetic and cosmetic appeal than traditional metal braces.

They are a cosmetic alternative to those who want their teeth straightened without the metal wires visible at the front. They are slightly more expensive due to the more complex treatment and maintenance required. Interested in getting Lingual Braces? Call Today

What concerns are lingual braces used to treat?

If you have misaligned, crocked or badly angled front teeth that lead to a smile that you aren’t happy with, orthodontic braces can help you to resolve your concerns in a gentle and gradual way.

It can take between 18 and 36 months for the process to be completed, depending on the severity of your dental condition.

What are the options for treating misaligned teeth?

Lingual and traditional fitted braces use brackets and wires to apply steady pressure to the teeth. As the wires are adjusted the teeth move onto the desired position.

  • Other options for getting orthodontic results include the Invisalign tray system and the Six Month Smile system.
  • Determining which orthodontic solution is the right option for you will require a frank discussion with your dentist at your consultation.
  • Many patients prefer the results of traditional braces but don’t love the idea of walking around with a mouthful of visible metals. Lingual braces can be a great solution.
  • The other orthodontic solutions that we offer can also help you to achieve the results that you are looking for. The best way to determine which orthodontic treat is best for you is to discuss your goals with your orthodontist at your consultation.
What are the advantages and disadvantaged of lingual braces?

One of the most obvious advantages of lingual braces is that no one will know that you are wearing them unless they take a look inside of your mouth. These braces offer a discreet orthodontic solution to those who may be in the professional work or be in a position to get frequent photos taken.

One potential downside that some patients may struggle with is that there is a slight possibility of lingual braces interfered with speech. As lingual braces are located in close proximity to the tongue, many patients are curious about whether the braces will interfere with their ability to speak with ease.

The majority of patients find that it takes just a few days to adjust to the braces being in place before they are able to speak just the same way as they were prior to the braces being fitted. During that period of adjustment enunciation may be affected but it should pass within a few short days.

In the past, braces were associated with high levels of patient discomfort. Fortunately, with technological advancements in the dental industry, that is no longer the case, and today’s braces are more comfortable than ever. The initial placement of your lingual braces should be completely pain-free. After that, your teeth and jaw may feel slightly tender for about a week due to the gradual movement of your teeth. After each follow-up appointment to tighten your braces, you may also experience some discomfort for a few days, though it will be very easily managed with over-the-counter pain medications and by adopting a temporary soft food diet.

  • review rating 5  Both myself and my husband have been Dr Erika's patients for over a decade. Crown dental is the cleanest, most equipped dental practice I have ever been to. Both dentists and the nurses are highly qualified and are brilliant with nervous patients. My husband had a dental implant done here with A+ results. Their prices are highly competitive but without compromising on quality. We cannot recommend them highly enough.

  • review rating 1  Erika is the worst dentist Ever ! I had an implant and root canal treatment with her and after that extensive bridge based on that. Over 3.5 years after that , i was kept in the dark coming back to her for check ups, no one ever told me how serious problem i have because of the treatment i have received from her, My gums were constantly swollen and i had pain around due to bridge. She kept sending me off with prescriptions which worked few months. Recently, i went to another dentist and he took a panoramic X- Ray which clearly shows that the implant was a huge failure and there was a huge bone inflammation around the implant and as a result of that the bone around has dissolved. There was no support for the implant as it was sitting on the lap of the bone. The root canal treatment was a also a huge failure as the x-ray showed a huge absence around the root and my new dentist could only remove both teeth as a result of this i lost the whole bridge I therefore do not want to recommend Erika to anyone PLease think twice

  • review rating 1  I had an appointment at 9 am at Crown dental, the receptionist, me and the dentist were waiting for an assistant (Sofia) for an hour standing at the front door. When she turned up with absolutely no care in the world, she didn't say hi or sorry not to even mention that she hasn't pick up the phone from the dentist and the receptionist, just turned up out of the blue. I was already 1 hour late into my very important treatment, and when I finally got to sit down on the chair, starting with impressions, the doctor asked the assistant Sofia to prepare the impression and at the end she did awful proportions of the impression, it would not solidify, she has the cheek and very little care of me (patient), of my precious time and money and the stress I have to go through to get a crown done. Unfortunately I was not able to finish my treatment because there were other people booked in for an appointment so she had to return me back home. I travelled taking 2 buses to get there just to get an impression that wasn't even prepared properly. The assistant Sofia is a young person and definitely not trained up to be taking up a serious job like this. She is absolutely incompetent, patients health and best care isn't in her best interest, and the ethics behind performance absolutely makes her a person unable to take on such a serious and responsible job. The dentist was unable to do her job because of the lack of help and lack of consideration that the assistant Sofia offered her.

  • review rating 5  Myself and my family has seen Dr. Erika Barta regularly. Crown Dental helped our family in many ways, we always attend for regular check-ups and cleanings. And also got implants and bridges done by Crown Dental. The staff is very helpful and professional. The environment is very relaxed, you don't feel going to the dentist 🙂 . I always recommend the clinic to my friends.

  • review rating 5  I was always scared of the dentist, but not anymore. I received my crowns at Crown Dental, and I couldn't be happier with the results. The treatment was pain free, the team made me at ease during the process. I can't stop smiling and showing my perfect teeth.
