Pros of Lingual Braces
The primary benefit of lingual braces is an aesthetic one. Because the braces are located behind the teeth, there is less of a self-esteem or confidence issue associated with wearing them. A natural smile is still seen, even though the braces are firmly attached.
Cons of Lingual Braces
The initial problem with lingual braces is that they are more difficult to clean. Because they are behind the teeth, it can be difficult to see all the food debris that could be stuck in the brace, meaning more time must be invested in the daily cleaning to prevent future teeth issues.
Lingual braces aren’t considered the right option for more severe cases of teeth realignment either. Only specific types of teeth straightening can be done with these braces and that can only be determined by an exam from your dentist.
Any adjustments that need to be made also take longer time and the overall cost of these braces is often more because of the extended work that is involved to install them and then care for them over time. Because the braces are on the back of the teeth, tongue irritation is a common side effect that people experience. Some speech issues can also be troublesome for the first couple weeks after the braces have been installed.
They are considered the most expensive type of braces to have installed, they are also the least visible and for many people the cost is worth the lack of visible braces.
