Lingual Orthodontics is a type of orthodontic treatment where the braces are placed on the inner or lingual side of the teeth, facing the tongue. This allows for the braces to be hidden from view when looking at the front of the teeth. Lingual orthodontics is a specialized method of orthodontic treatment where the appliances are attached to the back of the teeth, making them invisible from the front. It provides a confident smile without anyone knowing that orthodontic treatment is being undergone. It is more complex than conventional external braces because the shape and size of the back of each tooth differ. Therefore, specialized orthodontic materials are necessary to suit the individual characteristics of each tooth. This type of orthodontic treatment can only be performed by dentists who have received specialized knowledge and training.
