For those unfamiliar with Houston lingual braces, allow us to fill you in. Lingual braces differ from conventional braces in that they are placed in the back, rather than the front, of teeth. Because the brackets, wires and elastic bands are all on the inside of your teeth, they are less visible than other orthodontic treatments (such as Invisalign) that use outward-facing dental veneers. As a result, the procedure is often more appealing to adults who may feel self-conscious about wearing traditional braces.
Another advantage to lingual braces is their sophisticated design. Before installing your custom lingual braces in Houston, your orthodontist will first take optical impressions of your teeth, then plan your digital treatment, and finally craft brackets and archwires that are specifically fitted to your mouth. All of this helps to produce an experience in the dentist’s chair that’s not only quick and painless, but perhaps even pleasurable as well.
