Nice on the outside, nice on the inside– the lingual brace
An orthodontist who is experienced in the field of lingual orthodontics can fix most dental misalignments without any compromise. The brace on the lingual side is exclusively customised to your dental fingerprints.
This guarantees a perfect fit when the orthodontist affixes the braces. By nature of the flat design, the acclimatisation period for tongue is minimal.
Less cavities when using lingual braces
Compared to the standard fixed braces, the lingual brace is particularly protective against cavities and decalcification of the teeth. There are several reasons to explain this phenomenon. Fist of all brackets on the inside cover a bigger part of the tooth surface than outside ones. And as they are custom made they do this more accurate than conventional brackets. The by the lingual bracket covered surface of the teeth is inaccessible for caries in the first place. Moreover, the saliva flow is more concentrated on the inside than on the outside. The positioning of the tongue also introduces a particular cleansing functions on the brackets.
Scientific studies have also concluded that tooth decay occurs far less frequent lingual orthodontics in contrast to the standard fixed braces.
