Orthodontic treatment has come a long way in recent years, offering patients various options to achieve a beautiful, straight smile. One such discreet alternative that has gained popularity is lingual braces. Lingual braces offer a subtle and effective solution for individuals seeking orthodontic correction without the noticeable appearance of traditional braces. 

What are Lingual Braces?Lingual braces

Lingual braces are a type of orthodontic treatment that utilizes brackets and wires. However, unlike conventional braces that are affixed to the front of the teeth, they are attached to the back surface of the teeth, making them virtually invisible from the front.


  1. Aesthetic Appeal: The most significant advantage of this treatment option is its discreet nature. This is an excellent choice for individuals who wish to straighten their teeth without drawing attention to their orthodontic treatment.
  2. Customized and Comfortable: Lingual braces are custom-made to fit each patient’s unique dental anatomy, ensuring a more comfortable experience. They are designed to align perfectly with the contours of the teeth, minimizing discomfort and interference with speech.
  3. Effective Treatment: They offer the same effectiveness as traditional braces in treating a wide range of orthodontic issues, including crowding, spacing and bite problems. They provide precise control over tooth movement, ensuring optimal results.
