About Lingual Braces
Typical braces are placed on the front of the teeth, and that makes them very conspicuous. Lingual braces, however, are placed on the back of the teeth. This makes them a super discreet option, which is why they’re starting to become much more popular. As long as the teeth are big enough to support the brackets and wires, lingual braces can work well for children, teens, and adults.
However, even though lingual braces are becoming more popular, it doesn’t mean that every provider offers them. Orthodontists need special training to be able to apply them correctly, even though the principles of tooth movement are the same. Still, if you want a discreet option – or if you want to be able to play sports or certain wind instruments without difficulty – they can be a great choice for you.
Adirondack Orthodontics is proud to be one of the few providers in the Capital District offering this innovative option. We’re dedicated to giving our patients choices! Let’s have a conversation about whether lingual braces are right for you.
