In recent times, there have been numerous visible improvements in the world of orthodontics. This has made teeth to be straightened in a faster and more discreet way than it has been recorded in history. These improvements have made adults more interested in orthodontic treatments than ever before. With this great increase in the demands of the new teeth straightening method, the aesthetic braces have made their way to popularity.
The lingual brace is one of the outcomes of these improvements in orthodontics. This brace is made up of brackets and wire, and they are usually customised to perfectly suit each patient.
Unlike the other types of braces, the lingual brace is designed to be significantly invisible; this is why they are placed behind the teeth. This placement makes the braces interfere slightly with the speeches of the patient wearing them within the first few days of getting them. They are fixed braces, and they are suitable for patients of all ages.
The cost of this brace varies from clinic to clinic, but they are largely dependent on:
- Your case,
- The duration of your treatment,
- Where you live,
- The coverage of your insurance,
- The type of lingual brace you choose.
There are different types of lingual braces. They are listed below:
