Did you know that more than three quarters of orthodontists report an increase in adults seeking tooth-straightening options in the UK? As more and more of us look to improve our smile, invisible orthodontics has seen a rise in popularity.

Hidden lingual braces are a revolutionary orthodontic treatment made using top-of-the-line technology and placed behind your teeth, not in front. These are super effective at correcting misaligned teeth, and if you’re one of the many who desire the strength and support of traditional braces, without the obvious metallic appearance, lingual braces might be right for you. 

Here are some of the benefits of lingual braces to consider. 


Custom-made for your smile  

One of the biggest benefits of lingual braces is that they are specifically designed to fit the individual shape of your teeth. By taking a 3D digital impression of your teeth, our orthodontists can perfectly align the wires and brackets according to a patient’s prescription for maximum comfort and enjoyment. 


Virtually invisible 

For those who are image-conscious, and don’t want to draw attention to their smile, lingual braces are ideal. The incognito braces system is a great way to discreetly straighten your teeth without anyone ever realising you are having treatment – out of sight, out of mind. Therefore, they can also help to improve your self-image and confidence, allowing you to feel more comfortable when talking and grinning. 


A brighter smile

Since traditional fixed braces come with wires and brackets, they have the ability to easily trap food, leading to a build up in plaque, eventual discolouration and noticeable enamel wear if you have poor oral hygiene. This is where lingual braces have the advantage, as these hide snugly behind your teeth and will not spoil your straight smile.


Fix any malocclusion

Finally, one of the other benefits of lingual braces is that they are designed to treat most orthodontic problems, including crowded or crooked teeth, gaps in between teeth, alongside overbites, underbites, crossbites and open bites for the perfect occlusion.
