Our orthodontist, Dr. Ara Goshgarian, offers lingual braces in Lake Forest , Illinois. Are you curious to know what lingual braces are? Well, lingual braces are like traditional braces; however, instead of being cemented to the front surfaces of the teeth, they are cemented to the back surfaces of the teeth. This makes it very difficult for others to know you’re aligning your smile.
Typically, this treatment can only benefit those who have longer teeth. This is because they need to provide enough room for our orthodontist to cement the brackets to the back surfaces. This treatment can also only benefit those who do not have excessive bite problems. In order to find out if you’re eligible for lingual braces, you need to schedule an appointment for an orthodontic exam.
There are many advantages to lingual braces. Not only are they difficult for others to see, but they can also help those who play sports or a musical instrument. While you participate in these hobbies, the braces won’t get in the way like traditional braces might. Lingual braces are also easier to adapt to compared to traditional braces. This is because they don’t bother your oral tissues as much. However, it might take some time for your tongue to get used to the appliance.
