LINGUAL
BRACES

You already know about the traditional metal braces placed on the front of the teeth. What sets lingual braces apart is in their placement on the back of the teeth. Lingual braces have the same components as conventional braces, but they’re fixed to the back of your teeth, on the tongue — or lingual — side of the teeth. Lingual braces are virtually invisible, and that’s the main reason eligible patients choose them.

This partly explains why they are more common among adults than children. One other advantage is if you play a wind instrument or a sport, lingual braces are easier to adapt to than traditional braces. 

BIGGEST ADVANTAGE

But perhaps its biggest advantage over other invisible solutions, like Invisalign, is that lingual braces remain on your teeth at all times. You don’t have to worry about losing them, removing them to brush or eat, or getting a new one every couple weeks. Hidden braces are always working, even when you’re eating.

WHAT DO LINGUAL BRACES LOOK LIKE?

Lingual Braces

Lingual Braces look WAY more like traditional metal braces than they do clear aligners, like Invisalign. They even have many of the same components that metal braces do. There are brackets, an archwire, and ligature elastic

  • My experience with Orthodontist Dr. Sanchez was first class. I was on the fence about getting my teeth fixed after age 40, but I couldn't be happier with the results. Her bedside manner is terrific, both consistently calm and confident. She was always clear, patient, and upfront with me about my questions, options, pros-and-cons, and all costs. After consultation, I chose Invisalign and it was great for me. I expected some discomfort, but there was practically none. Now, my teeth are straighter than ever, easier to clean, and the minor pain I had is gone. The entire process wrapped up weeks faster than either of us expected. I highly recommend her. You'll be in good hands with Dr. Sanchez.

  • Dr. Sanchez is wonderfully professional and kind to both patients and parents. What she does is highly artistic, surgical, and technical, and she does it so well.  My daughter’s smile is perfectly beautiful because of their work.  Without reservation, I would highly recommend Dr. Sanchez and her staff to anyone who needs orthodontic care.
