Lingual braces – 'behind the teeth' braces – are a new generation of orthodontic braces for teens and adults offered at Guildford Orthodontics.
Lingual Braces, are placed behind your teeth so no one will know that you are wearing braces unless you tell them.
These unique braces are made by several manufacturers. Although GAC MTM (Minor Tooth Movement) are Dr. Kanani's favourite lingual braces due to their affordability for patients and ease of use, other brand names include iBraces, Incognito Lingual Braces, and Suresmile lingual braces. Lingual braces can provide efficient, effective tooth movement and great aesthetics.
Lingual braces have been used to treat men and women ranging from the age of 13 to 60+. Each individual case is different and it depends on the amount of crowding as well as other dental factors. Our orthodontists can tell you if lingual braces are the right treatment option for you during your initial consultation. If you are not a lingual braces candidate, you may still be a candidate for Invisalign® treatment or clear cosmetic braces which are also very esthetic.
Lingual braces are ideal for people who want to avoid damage to the front surfaces of their teeth or those whose who are concerned about wearing braces that show. Adult professionals , musicians who play wind instruments and adults and teens playing contact sports are also ideal candidates
