Straightening the teeth can improve how the smile looks and how the mouth functions. This kind of treatment can even lower a person’s risk for cavities, so why do so many people avoid doing it? In one word: braces. People simply don’t want to deal with the look of metal braces on their teeth, even if the treatment itself would be tremendously beneficial. But what if you could get braces that virtually no one would see? That’s exactly how lingual braces work, and Dr. Holland can use them to take your smile to the next level without anyone noticing your treatment.
Lingual braces actually work the exact same way as traditional braces, in that a system of brackets and wires is used to slowly move the teeth into the proper alignment. The big difference, however, is that instead of being placed on the front of the teeth, the brackets are placed on the back. This basically means they are hidden from plain view, allowing a patient to maintain their normal day-to-day appearance while improving their smile.
Dr. Holland can use lingual braces to fix all of the following issues without your friends or coworkers noticing your treatment:
