January, the month when many resolutions are made and broken. People wanting to lose weight, exercise more and repair any niggles that may have caused concern during the previous year. An ever growing resolution more and more people are looking to fix are teeth. Many citing anxieties in relation to how straight their teeth are, are now looking to fix this problem with lingual braces.
So What are Lingual Braces?
Unlike traditional braces, lingual braces are invisible. Attached to the inner surface of the tooth they cannot be seen and appear totally invisible. As they are attached to the back surface of your teeth they don’t encrypt your speech, so whilst you know you’re undergoing a secret transformation no one will have a clue.
Do they Work?
Orthodontic Clinics across the country have adopted state of the art technology to ensure the perfect smile. Using a variety of X-Ray systems and software, dentists can design comfortable and unique braces designed to fit only your dental structure. By adopting such technology ensures that users of lingual braces will have no discomfort usually associated with having traditional braces fitted.
Alongside the developments in technology and software developed has been the introduction of Acceledent. Acceledent, a hands free oscillating device is to be used on teeth twenty minutes a day and sends mild vibrations to speed up tooth movement. This enabling a reduction in treatment time. So not only are you going through a secret transformation you are enabling a reduction of wearing these braces by 6-7 months.
What to consider?
With any dental procedure considerations have to be given to what to expect. Although lingual braces are pain free it may take a couple of days getting used to such a fixture attached to the back of your teeth. Along with any brace fitted, more consideration to your brushing technique will have to be given to ensure you don’t damage the fixture and cause any unwanted discomfort. In the long run, your aesthetically pleasing smile will outweigh any initial discomfort you may find at first. Look at such celebs as Kelly Brook, that perfect smile didn’t appear overnight now did it.
Obviously with such personalised measures initially put in place to ensure the perfect bespoke fitting brace is placed in your mouth, you have to expect to pay more money. With any such procedure it is advised to do your homework and research practitioners. You can be looking to spend anywhere between £3000-£6000 on a lingual brace but this will include all the add on’s which go into making such a tailored piece of equipment.
