ArtAlign is a boutique Orthodnitics clinic which has been specialising in Lingual braces in London for many years. Lingual braces are often the first choice for adults & teenagers who want or need the most discreet treatment possible. Since the custom made gold or stainless steel alloy brackets are moulded tongue-side to teeth, they cannot be seen while talking or smiling.
The secondary advantage is that they are more effective than clear aligners when orthodontic work is required to balance teeth.
In cases where just the front teeth require straightening or corrections are being made to previous orthodontic work, then lingual brackets from the Incognito Lite system may be fitted behind the front teeth only for even faster and more cost-effective results.
WHAT TO BEAR IN MIND
Speech clarity may be rarely for a short time affected throughout the adaption phase after fitting. Subsequently the lingual appliance becomes part of yourself.
The risk of caries lesions or marks due to poor oral hygiene or pre-existing white spot caries lesions is 10 times lower compared to traditional buccal braces after treatment. Good gum health and precise oral hygiene routine is a must.
