What are Lingual braces?
Lingual braces also known as ‘hidden braces’ are like the traditional braces except that the braces sit behind the teeth rather than the front of teeth, making them completely hidden from view. They are virtually invisible when you are eating, smiling or talking, so no one knows that you are wearing them.
Lingual Orthodontics is great for treating mild to complex cases using a fixed brace, bonded on the lingual surface(back of the tooth). The braces are made from top of the line technology and are 100% customised i.e made to fit for the individual shape of your teeth, resulting in maximum control and comfort.
Lingual treatment is suitable for everyone irrespective of age provided your gums and bones are healthy. Treatment time may vary depends on your case but moderate cases usually take around 12-15 Months whereas complex cases could take around 2 years.

Like traditional braces, Lingual braces include archwires and very small brackets. However, in the case of lingual braces, the archwires are threaded through the brackets glued to the back of your teeth which apply gentle continuous pressure and help move the teeth in the desired position bit by bit. With time, the arch wire pulls back to its original shape resulting in the movement of teeth to then gradually straighten teeth.
As the braces are placed behind your teeth, you might feel strange or a bit of discomfort initially when the tongue touches the appliance. However, you will soon get used to it.
NW1 Dental Care clinic in Camden, London offers lingual brace treatment in Camden and London. We can book you for a free consultation and you don’t need to be referred by your dentist for an orthodontist.
Some people have no problems but it isn’t uncommon to have a slight lisp at the beginning of the treatment. However, the patient gets over this in a short time.
We recommend reading the Rainbow Passage and past experience from patients have shown that this famous passage has helped in faster improvement.
After the treatment starts you will need to have an appointment with the orthodontist every 6-8 weeks. We will check the progress of your treatment and make necessary adjustments to ensure best results.
