Lingual Braces TreatmentSalih ÖNDER
If you are considering different treatment options that will help you achieve the smile you dream of, you may have heard of lingual orthodontic applications. Lingual braces, also known as invisible braces, are a popular tooth straightening treatment because they are almost completely invisible.
What is Lingual Orthodontics?
In Lingul orthodontic applications, braces are attached to the inside of the teeth, not the outside. Lingual braces have several advantages over traditional braces. Its main advantage is an aesthetic appearance, because Lingual braces are not visible from the front and are completely invisible when you smile. This makes them a great option for patients who want to avoid traditional high-visibility braces.
Lingual orthodontics helps your teeth grow straight by applying small but continuous pressure on your teeth. You can have lingual orthodontic applications done in Hospitadent’s branches with state-of-the-art equipment with orthodontists who are experts in their fields.
Who is Lingual Orthodontics Applied to?
Lingual braces can be used at any age. However, the application has some physical limitations. First, the teeth must be long enough to provide enough space for the wires to be inserted into the tooth. Therefore, lingual wires may not be a suitable treatment option, especially for children with small teeth. Apart from tooth length, another limiting factor is malocclusion, that is, tooth closing disorders. Teeth that are not properly aligned are not suitable for lingual orthodontics.
The use of traditional braces can negatively affect a variety of activities, such as close contact sports and playing musical instruments. If you are involved in a close contact sport or play the flute, saxophone or any other instrument that requires direct contact with your mouth, you may prefer lingual orthodontic applications.
How Does Lingual Orthodontics Affect My Lifestyle?
Although lingual braces are a thinner option than traditional braces, it should be noted that they are braces. Therefore, you will have some restrictions on the foods you can eat during the treatment. The lingual wire may be made of metal, but that doesn’t mean it won’t be damaged. You have to be especially careful when consuming anything that is hard and sticky, as it can bend the wires.
Although invisible braces are an attractive option for those who want to avoid visible braces, they can cause some difficulties in speaking in the early stages of application, as they are positioned close to the tongue. The position of the strings partially influences tongue movements. This will decrease significantly over time, but for some patients this can be challenging at first.
No matter what type of braces are used, it is important to ensure proper oral hygiene. When lingual braces are applied, you may need to be more meticulous about cleaning the teeth. The placement of the wires makes it difficult to check if you have removed all food particles while brushing and flossing. When using wires, you may need to spend more time on oral hygiene.
