Apr 1st, 2016 All About Lingual Braces Get in touch

1567900_blogLingual braces are becoming more and more popular, particularly among adult patients. These braces work in the same way as traditional ones, with one crucial difference:

They’re basically invisible.

Yep, you read that right! Lingual braces are fixed to the back of your teeth (the lingual side) instead of the front, so they can’t be detected when you smile.

This means there’s no need to worry about your appearance when you’re wearing the braces. Nobody even has to know you’re having treatment! Many patients feel embarrassed when wearing braces, so this is the ultimate treatment for those who are self-conscious about their image.

We offer the amazing STb Social 6 lingual braces system, which is designed for people with minor orthodontic issues on their front teeth only.

About STb Social 6 braces

The aim of Stb Social 6 braces is to target the teeth visible when you smile, known as the ’social 6’. This makes it a great treatment for those with minor problems affecting their front teeth, for example crowding or gaps between the teeth.

Do they hurt?

We know what you’re thinking – doesn’t it hurt to have braces at the back of your teeth? In actual fact, STb Social 6 braces in particular are more comfortable than traditional braces and the technology they use minimises discomfort. Fine wires and small brackets make the braces friction-free, whereas the gentle forces generated enable the teeth to move with ease.

The benefits

The most obvious benefit of STb Social 6 braces is the invisibility factor. But as well as discreet aesthetics, these braces also offer increased comfort and as they only treat the front six teeth, treatment tends to be much faster than with traditional braces. Most cases are complete within about 16 weeks.

If you’re looking for a fast-acting, discreet orthodontic treatment for your minor dental woes, then look no further than STb Social 6.
