Lingual (Hidden) Braces
Patients who would like to minimise the appearance of braces should consider lingual braces.
Lingual braces are very similar to conventional metal braces except that the brackets are bonded to the back side or lingual (tongue) side of the tooth. This means that even during orthodontic
treatment, you can smile with confident, clear teeth. Most people won’t even know you are wearing braces!
The purpose of positioning the brackets on the back sides of the teeth is solely to minimise their appearance.
