You may have heard of braces and Invisalign, but what about lingual braces? These braces are a third option that is similar to regular braces. Instead of the braces being attached to the front of the teeth, though, they are attached to the back of the teeth instead, hiding them from sight.
Lingual braces can fix the same complex problems as regular braces. Since they are hidden from sight, they are a good option for people who play sports where they might get hit in the mouth, as well as adults and children who are worried that regular braces won’t look good on them.
While Invisalign braces are admittedly even more undetectable than lingual braces, they aren’t as useful for complex teeth problems. Plus, you don’t need to remember to wear lingual braces or forget to put them in your mouth in the first place.
If you need to wear braces but don’t want them to be visible, look into getting lingual braces. To find out more about whether lingual braces are right for you, read the infographic below.
