Not everyone wants their orthodontic treatment on show. If you are a client-facing professional or have an important event coming up, lingual braces might be a great option for you.
What are lingual braces?
Lingual braces are braces that are fitted to the back of your teeth, therefore no one needs to know about your treatment.
Lingual braces use a series of metal brackets, wires and elastics to shape your smile, just like traditional metal braces do. These hidden braces are just as effective as they are discreet.
Types of lingual braces we offer
At Yorkshire Orthodontics we use Incognito, WINN and Harmony fully customised lingual braces systems. We also offer the FORESTADENT 2d system depending upon the complexity of your orthodontic issues.
During your consultation in Leeds, Otley or Skipton, we can help you determine which type of lingual braces would be best for your case.
Will lingual braces affect my speech?
Lingual braces shouldn’t have any lasting effect on your speech. It may take your tongue a day or two to adjust to the appliance, but your speech should soon return to normal.
