Lingual Braces

Advantages

Disadvantages

  • Possibly the ultimate in invisible braces as they are mounted on the inside of the teeth and there is nothing on the outside, not even a layer of clear plastic
  • Able to control the movement of the teeth well (but not as well as for braces mounted on the front of the teeth)
  • Very expensive (in excess of $12,000)
  • Requires and dentist or orthodontist with special training as it is very skill dependant. There are not many people offering this treatment option in NZ
  • Can be uncomfortable for the tongue
  • Can get in the way of normally biting your teeth together making eating and chewing difficult and uncomfortable
  • Visits for adjustments can take much longer than for normal braces
