Lingual braces are the least conspicuous orthodontic treatment we offer at Pedodontics, P.C. They are placed on the opposite side of the teeth from standard braces, on the side closer to the tongue. They work the same way traditional metal braces do, but unlike metal braces, they’re completely invisible because they’re hidden behind the teeth themselves!
It’s important to note that lingual braces aren’t the proper treatment for every orthodontic condition. Special training is required to install them, and they’re significantly more expensive than standard braces. They also generally require a bit more time for the wearer to get used to them, and they may slightly prolong treatment.
