What is lingual brace ?

When it comes to braces, most people think of an unsightly set of iron-filled teeth. Fortunately, the advancement of orthodontic technology has led to the emergence of lingual braces. Lingual braces have the same components as conventional braces, but they’re fixed to the back of your teeth, on the tongue – or lingual – side of the teeth. Because they’re behind your teeth, they’re nearly invisible, help to increase the aesthetics and help people more confident when communicating.

The method of brace in the side og the teeth can be used for everyone, from kids to adults. It also can be used for overbite, misaligned teeth,uneven teeth.

  • Overbite: Overbite or retrognathism is a popular malocclusion type. It is easy to be seen the upper jaw and teeth severely overlap the bottom jaw and teeth, lead to uneven face, less aesthtic. You can use lingual brace to solve the problem of protruding teeth, ensure the correct bite, and eat easier.
  • Underbite: Underbite or prognathis. With normal bite, the upper teeth fit slightly over lower teeth and the points of molars fit the grooves of the opposite molars but at people who have underbite, the lower jaw protrudes or juts forward, causing the lower jaw and teeth to overlap the upper jaw and teeth. Braces are attached to the inside of the teeth to help straighten the upper and lower jaw evenly, bite properly, improve the bad condition of the teeth.
  • Diastema: Diastema or gap-toothed, gaps can occur anywhere in your mouth, but they’re most common between your two front teeth. This condition is usually a cosmetic concern, but sometimes, it’s related to gum disease. Lingual braces facilitate intervention and approximate the distal teeth to ensure cosmetic, bite and chewing function.

  • Possibly less pain: During the process of wearing braces, the outer surface of the brackets is scratched with the oral mucosa, which can cause inevitable canker sore in the mouth due to the friction of the objects. There are many cases of cheek wounds due to over exercise. When using braces on the outside, it is easy to hurt the lips and cheeks when they collide. So using an internal bracket can save you from this
