Lingual Braces – Cosmetically Appealing Braces Adults Love

Our Tucson orthodontist, Dr. Marisela Bedoya, provides our patients with a variety of treatment options because she knows that people today want choices when it comes to orthodontic treatment. A growing number of adults we treat are choosing the very popular lingual braces that are placed on the backside of the teeth. These braces are a very effective way to straighten teeth without the look and feel of conventional metal braces.

How Lingual Braces Work

Lingual braces function in the exact same way as traditional metal braces. The difference between lingual braces and regular metal braces is an aesthetic one as lingual braces are placed on the backside of the teeth rather than the front. Because lingual braces are not very noticeable, a growing number of adults and teens are wearing them.

When you’re wearing these nearly invisible braces, there is no need to feel self-conscious about undergoing orthodontic treatment. Whether it’s an important work-related presentation, a job interview, a date or a casual conversation with someone you’ve just met, wearing low-profile lingual braces can make all the difference in the world as far as confidence goes.


Are Lingual Braces Right for You?

If you’re interested in having your teeth straightened but don’t want to wear conventional metal braces that show, you should find out if our Tucson and Vail, AZ lingual braces are right for you. At your first appointment, Dr. Bedoya will examine your teeth and bite and then tell you if this orthodontic treatment option is something you could choose.

If you’re an adult, you may be hesitant to seek out orthodontic treatment because you’re not very enthusiastic about the idea of wearing conventional metal braces. But lingual braces, which are hidden from view, are a great alternative to visible metal braces. Because lingual braces are placed on the back-side of the teeth, they’re completely hidden from view. In other words, no one will know that you’re wearing braces unless you tell them! These braces are 100% customized to the shape of your teeth and to your individual orthodontic treatment plan, making them comfortable and very effective in helping you obtain a new, straight smile.

Who Can Wear Lingual Braces?

Just about anyone – men and women, teens or adults can usually wear lingual braces. The odds are that if you can be treated with traditional braces, you’re a good candidate for lingual braces.
