Our team is pleased to offer a number of orthodontic treatment options at Ecco Dental. In addition to traditional metal braces, we also offer several treatment options that are more discreet, allowing you to maintain a more natural smile aesthetic during treatment. One of these discreet options is lingual braces. Like traditional braces, lingual braces are comprised of metal brackets and archwires; however, the brackets and wires are attached to the back, tongue-side of your teeth, which means they are not visible when you open your mouth to smile, speak, laugh, eat, or yawn. This makes lingual braces an excellent choice for patients who are interested in straightening their smiles without the usual look of metal braces.
Like traditional braces, lingual braces work by applying continuous, gentle pressure to the teeth, which helps them slowly shift into their proper positions. Typical treatment time with lingual braces ranges from 18-36 months, depending on the severity of tooth crowding and the alignment of the bite. When you speak with Dr. German G. Jaquez, he can explain your individual treatment plan and give you an estimate of how long your treatment will last in order to achieve optimal results.
