Benefits of Lingual Braces Behind the Teeth
While braces of all types have the benefit of straightening teeth, lingual braces have unique advantages, including:
- Appearance: The brackets and wire attach to the backside of your teeth, so these braces are impossible to see. You can continue smiling confidently and watch your teeth straighten over time.
- Efficiency: Lingual braces can handle most bite and jaw issues seamlessly. There are exceptions, but lingual braces are ideal for correcting misaligned teeth, crowding and gaps.
- Comfort: These brackets are specially designed for your teeth, so they have a smoother, more comfortable design. They do not touch your cheek, which can be a sensitive spot for those with metal braces.
How to Care for Lingual Braces
Proper care can prevent plaque buildup and ensure overall tooth health. Follow these tips to care for your lingual braces:
- Brush and floss morning, night and after meals.
- Use a mouthwash to help remove bacteria and plaque.
- Use floss designed explicitly for braces.
- Avoid sticky, crunchy and chewy foods that could get stuck in or break your brackets.
- Talk to your orthodontist if you have any concerns, excessive pain or broken metal.
