Braces Behind Your Teeth
Advanced & Discreet Treatment
When you want to keep your orthodontic treatment as discreet as possible, braces behind your teeth, also called lingual braces, can be a great choice. This state-of-the-art technology uses brackets that sit on the back of your teeth, which allows you the freedom to straighten your teeth without any of your friends or family noticing. Our experienced team offers braces behind your teeth in Charlotte and Steele Creek, NC, and Rock Hill, SC, for convenient and nearly invisible treatment.
What Are Lingual Braces?
Lingual braces (braces behind your teeth) are glued behind your teeth instead of on the front so they are virtually undetectable They are fixed, just like regular braces, and are customized to the shape of your teeth. Lingual braces are incredibly effective and provide great aesthetics during orthodontic treatment.
Who Can Benefit From Lingual Braces?
Anyone concerned with their appearance during treatment can benefit from lingual braces, including children and teens who may be self-conscious about traditional braces. The most common patients who benefit from this treatment are:
- Anyone regularly on camera, like news anchors
- People who play horn or reed instruments
Lingual Braces Specifics
Lingual braces do have requirements that need to be met in order for them to be effective. Your teeth have to be long enough to accommodate the braces, which doesn’t make them a great option for children or people with small teeth. Additionally, if you have excessive bite problems, our orthodontist will probably recommend a different option for you.
After having lingual braces applied, there will likely be an adjustment period for getting used to talking. You also may notice that you have to get used to swallowing without a tongue thrust (pushing your tongue against your teeth), which might be difficult at first. If you opt for lingual braces, you must be diligent in brushing and flossing, as they’re more difficult to clean since you can’t see the brackets. However, with proper care, lingual braces are just as effective as regular braces.
