Lingual Braces

Lingual Braces

Lingual braces have brackets placed virtually on the inner side of the tooth (lingually) and hence are practically invisible. No one except the patient knows that they are wearing braces. They are indicated for all types of bite correction, however the treatment time may vary depending on the severity. If you don't want anyone to ever know that you are wearing braces, then invisible braces is the solution for you!


They are 100 percent customizable, which allows them to follow the shape of your teeth for comfort and to give you the best smile possible. They work to gradually move the teeth into their right position just like traditional braces.

Adaptation period for invisible braces is around one week Speech alteration will be present for around one week to ten days. After initial Adaptation period speech becomes normal.

We have treated models, actors, senior managers, hotel and airline crew with these braces. They could continue with their work as usual.
