The Magic of a Smile

Lingual orthodontics

Lingual orthodontics is an alternative to the traditional fixed appliance consisting in the application of metallic brackets on the inner tooth surface in such a way that they are hidden. This is applicable for all age groups, but this practice is specifically advised for adult patients that do not want to compromise their aesthetic appearance with the traditional appliances.

Recent improvements in lingual technique allowed it to be used more efficiently in the correction of most malocclusions, giving rise to better results compared to the classic fixed appliance.
Lingual orthodontics is state of the art and highly sophisticated and so requires so the knowledge and the clinical skills of a Specialist in Orthodontics.

Every component employed in lingual orthodontics is completely customized: bracket position, arch form and the single components of the appliance are tailored for every patient.
The employment of small lingual metallic brackets and wires without bends helps to reduce possible tongue irritation. A highly technological system with low strength results in an efficient and physiological tooth movement.

The are no downsides to orthodontic treatment with lingual technique. It is, however, necessary to pay careful attention to oral hygiene to avoid important plaque retention. The initial discomfort, with minimal phonetic alteration, determined by the contact of metallic brackets with the tongue, lessens after a few weeks, as the patient gets used to the appliance.
