Lingual braces are placed on the inside of the teeth and are ideal for those who would prefer their treatment to go unnoticed.

Lingual braces may only be needed for short periods of time for simple problems though complex cases can take up to 2 years. The majority of lingual braces are on adult patients but children can request this treatment from 14 years of age. Fees are between two and three times that of conventional treatment.
Whilst lingual braces do not show, our patients certainly know they are there. The tongue may become irritated and sore initially. Speech can be affected, causing a lisp or whistling sound in the first few weeks.
Chewing food will also be difficult as the teeth are held apart by the braces for the first few months.
90% of patients wearing lingual braces have very few complaints after the first 10 days.
