DISCREET ORTHODONTIC BRACES TO STRAIGHTEN YOUR TEETH
Alias Lingual Braces at Didsbury Dental Practice, Manchester
Lingual braces are the ultimate aesthetic brace as they are placed behind your teeth, rather than in front, so no one will even know you are wearing the appliance. Lingual treatment is ideal for patients who do not want their braces to show and are a more aesthetic treatment option usually favoured by adult patients, however, they are also suitable for children. Most patients experience minimal discomfort and speech interference after just a short adjustment period to lingual braces.
To ensure precise results and optimum comfort, lingual braces are custom-made from non-allergenic gold using the latest computer technology. The process for lingual braces involves taking an impression of the teeth, which is then sent to a dental laboratory and used to create customised braces. Like traditional braces, lingual braces work by applying gentle yet continuous pressure on the teeth, to help them slowly move into the desired position. Treatment takes between 18 and 36 months, depending on the severity of the overcrowding.
