Lingual braces, oftentimes called “invisible braces” or “incognito braces”, are offered at The Orthodontics Center of NYC on Manhattan’s Upper East Side. These sophisticated braces are actually fitted behind the teeth on the tongue (lingual) side by our best in class NYC orthodontist. These orthodontic braces are completely invisible. We offer free orthodontic lingual braces consultation for you or your teen.
Unlike the stereotypes of traditional metal braces, modern orthodontics is about the most effective, comfortable and even invisible solution. Not only can you straighten your teeth as well as widen your smile. Orthodontic treatments such as lingual braces can also provide long-term visual and health benefits of your teeth, gums, and mandibular (jaw) function.
The benefits of incognito lingual braces include:
- Undetectable: Incognito braces sit behind your teeth (unlike Invisalign), ensuring that they are completely invisible from view when you smile, making this the most aesthetically pleasing orthodontic braces option. Just to overemphasize its benefits, the obvious advantage of lingual braces is that no one will know you are wearing them, unless, they start looking inside your mouth. Other than that, there is no compelling medical or clinical indication to use lingual braces over regular braces.
- Custom: The braces used for incognito treatment are completely customized for the individual, allowing for the most effective treatment possible. While the fronts of your teeth are fairly consistent, the back side of each tooth has its own distinctive shape. Therefore each bracket will be manufactured for each individual patient.
- Fast: Noticeable results can be seen in a very quick time, which means a lot less check-ups during treatment and it will take less time to straighten your teeth.
- Comfort: One of the most comfortable orthodontic braces options.
Instead of having metal brackets (traditional fixed braces) bonded on your front teeth, lingual metal braces are customized to bond at the back of the teeth so they remain invisible when smiling and speaking. They are a cosmetic alternative to those who want their teeth corrected invisibly: without the displeasing metal braces look when they smile.
The orthodontic treatment process is very similar to traditional metal braces, along with similar food and beverage rules that you must follow with regular braces. That means gum, hard foods, and popcorn should still stay out of your diet until your braces come off.
If you have misaligned, poor bite, crocked or badly angled teeth that makes you smile less than flattering, orthodontic lingual braces can solve your orthodontic condition in a visually aesthetic fashion.
