Behind teeth braces, also known as lingual braces, are a type of orthodontic treatment used to correct misalignment of the teeth. Lingual braces are the perfect choice for those who want to maintain their confidence and aesthetic appeal while straightening their teeth.
Lingual braces are custom-made brackets and wires that are attached to the backside of the teeth. They are designed to be as small and as discrete as possible, so they are practically invisible when you smile. The brackets are made of metal or ceramic, and the wires are made of nickel-titanium.
The treatment process begins with a consultation with your orthodontist. During the consultation, your orthodontist will take x-rays and impressions of your teeth to determine your individual needs. Once your orthodontist has determined the best course of treatment, they will create a custom-fit set of lingual braces for you.
The next step is for your orthodontist to attach the braces to the backside of your teeth. This process is painless and takes about an hour. Once the braces are in place, you will need to come back for regular adjustments to ensure your teeth are moving in the right direction.
During the treatment period, you may experience some discomfort and soreness in your mouth. You may also experience some difficulty speaking, but this should also improve over time.
The treatment period for lingual braces can range from 12 to 24 months, depending on the severity of your misalignment. During this time, you should be diligent in brushing and flossing your teeth and attending all follow-up appointments with your orthodontist.
When the treatment period is complete, your orthodontist will remove the braces and your teeth should be in their new, corrected positions.
Behind the teeth braces are an excellent choice for those who want to maintain their confidence and aesthetic appeal while straightening their teeth. They are virtually invisible, and the treatment process is comfortable and straightforward. With proper care and regular check-ups, you can enjoy the benefits of a beautiful smile for years to come.
