Hidden Braces

 

Having braces doesn’t mean you have to have a “tin grin.” Our office also uses 

lingual braces, which attach to the lingual side (tongue side) of your teeth. These appliances are well-suited for patients, who may worry about the aesthetic nature of regular metal braces.

Lingual braces are also custom-fit for your teeth and treatment plan. While the front of your teeth are fairly consistent, the back side of each tooth has its own distinctive shape. Thus, each bracket must be manufactured for each individual patient.

You can receive the dramatic results of orthodontic treatment without anyone knowing, as the braces are virtually invisible. Ask us if lingual braces are right for you.

 Dr. Samuel has over 20 years of experience in the use of lingual braces, he is one of the pioneers and teaches this technique as well as lectures internationally on lingual braces. There are no orthodontists in the USA (and only a few worldwide) that directly place lingual braces on teeth and obtain board quality results.

 

 

 

 

 

We have recently introduced a new type of lingual brace in our office. It is a self ligating lingual brace, the In-Ovation Lingual brace. We are privileged to be a beta test site for this phenomenal appliance. The advantages are that it takes less time to place the wires and there is almost no discomfort to the tongue and no blatant noticeable effect on speech. Teeth line up withing months of having the braces placed allowing patients to enjoy their smiles early in treatment while they wait for the bite to be corrected. We are proud to anounce that we are totally dedicated to the self ligation appliance both from the front as well as the back of the teeth.
