Lingual braces

Lingual braces in Fredericksburg, VA

As technology advances, orthodontic treatments become more comfortable and aesthetically pleasing. While many people choose metal braces to align their smile, there are other options. Lingual braces, such as InBrace®, from Fredericksburg Orthodontics are one subtle choice that many teens and adults prefer.

Who's a good candidate for lingual braces?

Lingual braces are applied to the back — or lingual — side, which is practically invisible to others. As you go through orthodontic treatment, your teeth will become straighter without displaying your metallic braces. During your complimentary consultation, we can determine whether lingual braces are a good fit for you.

Lingual braces can be ideal solutions for patients who want to correct tooth placement without the appearance of metal braces.

While lingual braces can address most issues, their placement on the teeth’s backs may be less effective for specific problems. Some severe overbite cases require metal braces. Our team can determine whether you are a good candidate for lingual braces when you visit our office for a consultation.

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.

  • Talk to your orthodontist if you have any concerns, excessive pain or broken metal.

  • Use floss designed explicitly for braces.
