Are you seeking a truly invisible orthodontics solution? If given a choice, most patients who need orthodontic treatment would choose the least visible treatment method. However, clear braces treatments, like Invisalign and ClearCorrect, are sometimes unable to correct certain severe malocclusion problems. In this scenario, patients don’t have to settle for traditional brackets and wires. They can still get the discrete orthodontics treatment they want with a new set of lingual braces. Lingual braces are completely invisible because they are hidden naturally by your teeth. If you want to explore the lingual braces solution, make an appointment for an orthodontic treatment evaluation with Dr. Shirck today. Shirck Orthodontics proudly serves patients of all ages throughout New Albany, OH, Pataskala, Westerville, Sunbury, New Albany, Alexandria, Granville, Johnstown, Newark, Reynoldsburg, Blacklick, and the surrounding communities.
What Are Lingual Braces?
Lingual braces are truly invisible braces. Unlike other types of braces, lingual braces are placed behind your teeth, not out front. With lingual braces, only you and your orthodontist will know that you’re undergoing treatment.
How Are Lingual Braces Placed?
At your first lingual braces appointment Dr. Shirck will take impressions of your teeth. These impressions are then sent to a dental lab where your custom lingual brackets are created using CAD/CAM technology and rapid prototyping. The wires are created and shaped using state-of-the-art robotic technology. This process may take up to six weeks. Once complete, Dr. Shirck will use a precise placement process to cement the braces onto your teeth. Your treatment time will vary based on your treatment plan.
Why Choose Lingual Braces?
If you have a need to look your best, even while you complete your treatment, lingual braces are your best bet. With ceramic braces, the brackets are tooth-colored, but the metal wire connecting them is still visible. With clear braces, the aligners are easily removable, but not completely invisible. But lingual braces are truly invisible. Lingual braces are also the better choice for patients who actively play wind instruments or participate in sports.
The placement of lingual braces requires specialized skills. Not every dentist or orthodontist is qualified to administer lingual braces because they require extra training. Dr. Shirck is a highly qualified orthodontist, well experienced in the placement of lingual braces. You can make an appointment for your lingual braces evaluation with Dr. Shirck today.
