Lingual braces are braces that are placed behind the teeth. They are a new generation of orthodontic treatment for teens and adults offered at Greater Vancouver Orthodontics.
Lingual Braces are placed behind your teeth. This means that fewer people may know you're wearing braces unless you tell them.
Lingual braces are made by several manufacturers. Many patients find that GAC MTM (Minor Tooth Movement) are easy to use and affordable. Other brands include Incognito Lingual Braces, and Suresmile lingual braces.
Whatever brand you choose, lingual braces can provide effective, efficient tooth movement and great results and a low profile look.
Lingual braces have been used to treat teens and adults ranging in age from 13 to 60+.
Each individual case is different and appropriateness of the treatment depends on the amount of crowding and a variety of other dental factors. Our orthodontists will be able to tell you if lingual braces are the right treatment option for you during your initial consultation.
If you are not a candidate for lingual braces, you may still be a candidate for Invisalign treatment or clear cosmetic braces, both of which are also very low profile.
Lingual braces may be a good choice for those who would like to to avoid damage to the front surfaces of their teeth, or who are concerned about wearing braces that are obvious.
Musicians who play wind instruments, adult professionals, and adults and teens who play contact sports are all ideal candidates.
Not everyone is a candidate for lingual braces. Please one of our Vancouver clinics to book an examination and consultation.
Our orthodontists will conduct a thorough review your case and suggest the most appropriate treatment options for your needs.
