Orthodontic braces are an ideal treatment for patients who want to straighten their teeth out and improve their smile. What it does is that its individual brackets and wires simply apply gentle, yet constant pressure on the teeth, causing it to move and create ample space, especially those that have started to form a crowd at the center.
Studies suggest that a lot of people who have been advised to wear orthodontic braces refuse to wear one or always request for an alternative because they are too worried about how their smiles would look like. Admittedly, braces are a big help to one’s teeth alignment and bite improvement, but a lot of patients want to shun away from it as much as possible.
Now, patients don’t need to worry anymore because Braydon Dental Care clinic allows their patients to choose between having regular braces or lingual braces. Lingual braces or invisible braces do the exact same work as the regular braces, only that their brackets are installed at the back of your teeth, just below the tongue and palate- thus called lingual braces. This offers a great cosmetic alternative for patients who want to go through the treatment that braces have to offer but don’t want it showing on their teeth.
Although we’ve mentioned that lingual braces do the exact work as that of regular orthodontic braces, it is slightly heavier on the pocket as it starts at $5,000, as lingual braces have special requirements. Aside from this, the only thing slightly uncomfortable with this is possible sores beneath the tongue as it directly touches the surface at all times.
Cleaning lingual braces are just as easy as cleaning regular braces. Brushing twice a day for two minutes, flossing, using a soft-bristled toothbrush and rinsing with an oral antiseptic.
