Get the benefit of braces without anyone seeing them
If you are after orthodontic treatment that allows you to smile with confidence, hidden braces, also known as lingual braces may be your answer. At the Bachmayer Orthodontic Clinic in Parramatta and Norwest we offer lingual braces to those who would prefer a much more discreet option to traditional or even clear braces.
What are lingual braces?
Lingual braces are traditional braces with a twist – instead of attaching to the front of your teeth, they are fixed to the inside (or lingual side) of your teeth, next to your tongue, making them invisible when you smile. This enables your teeth to move into alignment while keeping the braces completely out of sight. By using this treatment you can get all the benefits of traditional braces without obstructing your smile!
Who are lingual braces suited for?
Lingual braces are highly suitable for adults and teenagers who don’t want others to know they’re undergoing orthodontic treatment. They are also a very aesthetic option for athletes, models, actors and actresses, musicians who play wind instruments, and adult professionals whose lifestyle would be affected by other treatment options. Lingual braces enable patients to enjoy the benefits of orthodontics whilst retaining their natural appearance and smile.
However, while this treatment is fantastic for those who have crooked teeth and want to opt for a subtle yet effective treatment, lingual braces cannot fix all orthodontic issues. This means some patients may require alternative forms of treatment to ensure they achieve their desired results. Patients who have severe malocclusions, such as a deep bite, may not be suitable for lingual braces. Dr Bachmayer will be able to expertly assess your smile and recommend whether this treatment will be in your best interests.
Benefits of lingual braces
Lingual braces are fantastic for providing high quality results combined with pleasing aesthetics. Some of the main benefits of these braces include:
- They are hidden behind your teeth so no one can see you are wearing braces
- You get the same effective results as traditional braces without diminishing the aesthetics of your smile
- Strong materials used minimise breakage and damage
- Brackets and wires do not rub against your mouth, making for a more comfortable treatment experience
- They are 100% customised to match the shape of your teeth and have wires that are shaped specifically for your mouth.
