Lingual Braces were invented in the mid 1970’s by Dr Craven Kurz, after a celebrity patient of his requested an alternative to traditional braces. Over the years, they were also considered the expensive alternative to tradition braces. Thanks to orthodontists like Dr Wong, at Invisible Lingual Braces, lingual braces are now much more affordable, and a great option to consider!
There are so many benefits to wearing lingual braces, from their visual aesthetic to the way they reduce your health risks. We’re sure you’ll love your lingual braces.
Lingual Braces Won’t Get in the Way of Your Smile
When it comes to the way we look, human beings can be very self-conscious. Over the years’ traditional braces have developed a reputation for being unattractive or embarrassing. Even though, these days’ traditional braces are socially accepted, we understand if you want a more discreet approach to straightening your teeth.
Lingual braces are perfect for times like this, because they are fixed to the lingual side of the teeth. This means you can wear braces without anyone ever knowing!
Design Your Smile with Lingual Braces suresmile™ Technology
Thanks to the suresmile™ technology, Dr Wong can design your smile! Dr Wong’s ability to specifically customise your smile by using suresmile™, can reduce the time you need to wear your lingual braces by 50%. This means you may only have to wear your lingual braces for around 12 months. We can use suresmile™ technology with lingual braces and traditional braces.
Lingual Braces Can Reduce Potential Health Risks
When you have straight teeth that are unbound by malocclusions, your teeth are easier to clean and take care of. Crowded and crooked teeth are hard to clean properly, and when teeth aren’t cleaned properly plaque begins to build up. Plaque can be the start of many nasty things like cavities and gum disease. Plaque can also turn into tartar. Tartar is much harder to remove than plaque, and can make it even to floss your teeth. If tartar and gum disease are untreated, they can turn into a serious gum disease called periodontitis. Periodontitis is the leading cause of tooth loss in adults, and is also linked to increased chances of stroke and heart disease.
