What is Lingual Orthodontics?
It is like conventional orthodontics but the brackets are cemented on the inside of the tooth.
The brackets are placed on the inside of the teeth and are glued with a special cement.
It is not a painful treatment as gentle and continuous forces are used.
With this type of orthodontics it is better to avoid the consumption of hard foods such as nuts, bread, chewing gum, etc. as they can be damaged or detached.
If the brackets are lowered repeatedly, the treatment may take longer than desired.
The operation is the same as with conventional braces, only they are not visible.
To take into account
Revision visits are usually once a month and depending on the case the treatment usually lasts between 1 or 2 years. The duration of treatment is linked to its complexity, being shorter in mild or simple cases and longer in more complicated cases.
During some time of the treatment, the patient may be asked to use intermaxillary elastics, which are those “removable” gummies that should be worn at home. They are of different thickness, depending on the strength required.
A good brushing after each meal is very important, thus carrying out a minimum of 3 brushings a day. There are special orthodontic brushes, electric brushes, interproximal brushes and irrigators that can be of great help for day-to-day cleaning.
