If you’re not an avid fan of orthodontics, the chances are that you may still think that having braces means sporting a set of metal train-tracks for at least 12 months; however, you may be pleased to discover that is not the case! Thanks to amazing developments and advances in science and technology, there are now many treatment options available for orthodontic patients in the city of London, including lingual braces.
For those who have put off having treatment in the past due to the unsightly aesthetic of fixed braces, lingual braces will be a very attractive prospect. Lingual braces are fixed braces and they are capable of treating a wide range of orthodontic issues, but they offer a major advantage over traditional fixed braces, as they are fixed to the back of the teeth, which means that they are invisible when you smile.
The concept of lingual braces may seem a little odd and some patients may be worried that the braces may be painful, as they sit in such close proximity to the tongue; however, the brackets of lingual braces are smaller and lighter than conventional braces and the wires are self-ligating, which reduces friction and accelerates treatment time.
The leading lingual brace systems include Incognito and STb Social 6 braces; Incognito is designed for patients with moderate or complex needs, while STb Social 6 braces are an excellent option for those who only require minor correction.
If you’re looking for a brace, which promises amazing results with the added bonus of being completely invisible, why not consider lingual braces?
