Overview of

Lingual Braces

in Thailand

Lingual braces provide a virtually invisible alternative to traditional metal braces. Instead of being placed on the front of the teeth as is seen with traditional braces, lingual braces are fitted behind the teeth, facing the tongue.

This provides an excellent cosmetic alternative for adults who want to get their teeth straightened discreetly.

Treatment goals of

Lingual Braces

As with all braces, lingual braces aim to transform your facial appearance for the better by bringing your teeth into proper alignment. The position of your teeth not only influences the appearance of your mouth and jaw, but also has a direct impact on your bite, bone and gum tissue.

As such, properly positioned teeth and an aligned bite is essential for improved overall oral health. With lingual braces, you are also able to visibly see the improvements in your smile as opposed to traditional braces which partially cover your teeth.

Pros and cons of

Lingual Braces

Pros

  • Lingual braces are nearly invisible, allowing you to undergo orthodontic treatment discreetly.
  • They are effective in correcting nearly all problems associated with the bite.
  • To ensure the braces function at their maximum efficiency while also making sure you remain comfortable throughout treatment, lingual braces can be customized to fit perfectly along your teeth.

Cons

  • More time may be needed for placement compared to conventional braces.
  • They can be more costly to place as opposed to other types of braces.
  • You may experience significant discomfort during the initial days/weeks after placement.
  • You may experience a temporary lisp with lingual braces.

How it works:

Lingual Braces

While treatment for clear and metal braces can commence right after a consultation with your orthodontist in some cases, prior laboratory work is necessary for lingual braces for which impressions of your teeth are taken to aid in customization.

Once the braces are ready for placement, your orthodontist will arrange a follow-up visit during which brackets are fitted onto the back of your teeth. It is of utmost importance for your orthodontist to have ample knowledge as to how lingual braces work.

Preparation before

Lingual Braces

Pre - treatment

Your orthodontist will have a look at your medical records, ask you to undergo digital X-ray imaging, and may ask to have additional photos taken to aid in the success of your treatment plan. Dental impressions will also be taken to produce a mold of your teeth to provide customized lingual braces that fit perfectly along your teeth.

Recovery after

Lingual Braces

Post - treatment

It is normal to experience some discomfort, teeth soreness or tenderness during the first few days/weeks after placement — this can be alleviated with pain-relieving medication such as those taken for headaches. Your orthodontist will keep you informed as to what medication you can take to relieve discomfort.

Other parts of your oral cavity, such as your lips, tongue and cheeks may initially experience some irritation as they adjust to the presence of your braces.

Risks & side effects of

Lingual Braces

  • Temporary lisp – You may experience changes in your speech after braces placement, most noticeably with “S” and “T” sounds. This can be easily overcome through regularly practicing to speak with proper pronunciation. Doing this consistently will ensure your speech turns back to the way it was pre-treatment.
  • Discomfort – It is inevitable that you will experience some significant discomfort after getting lingual braces placed, with your tongue being the most affected as it will be in contact with the brackets behind your teeth. You can ask your orthodontist to have the wires clipped should you feel any poking sensation around your braces.
  • Gum complications – The location of the braces may make it difficult for you to properly clean your teeth, increasing the risk of tooth decay and other gum-related issues.

FAQs:

Lingual Braces

Am I eligible for lingual braces?

Lingual braces are suitable for those who:

  • would like to improve the appearance of uneven teeth
  • are concerned about misalignment issues, such as an underbite or overbite

However, lingual braces aren’t a universal solution and won’t work for everyone. Placing the braces on the inside of the teeth requires enough surface area (i.e. the teeth have to be sufficiently long) for the fitting to be successful.

As such, patients who have deep overbites may encounter issues with the brackets popping out of place. Your orthodontist will be able to determine if you are a suitable candidate for lingual braces.

Does the treatment time take longer compared to traditional braces?

The treatment time is almost similar and may be even shorter when compared to treatment with traditional braces. This, of course, depends on a case by case basis, but some patients may notice quicker results with lingual braces thanks to its particular design.

How do lingual braces compare to traditional braces in terms of comfort?

Patients will experience discomfort of almost the same intensity as that of traditional braces, the main difference being that the tongue will be the most affected by lingual braces. However, this discomfort can be alleviated by rinsing your mouth out with salt water and will last only for the first few weeks (approximately one to four weeks) until the tissues in your mouth have adjusted.

How to best maintain and take care of my braces after the procedure?

It is recommended to:

  • eat only soft foods and avoid chewy, sticky, hard, and crunchy foods (toffee, apples, carrots, nuts, etc.) for a couple of days after placement
  • use a toothbrush with a small head and soft bristles to thoroughly brush areas obstructed by the braces
  • wear a protective mouth guard if you engage in sports
  • regularly attend your dental appointments for any necessary adjustments
