The physical appearance is important to both adolescents and adults. It is usually the first thing we notice about other people. The face in particular quickly catches the eye. Thus, many patients who require orthodontic treatment are looking for a discreet, inconspicuous solution.
There are several options for almost invisible braces. One of them is the so-called lingual system, where a fixed brace is placed on the inside instead of the outside of the teeth. Find out more about lingual treatment and why internal braces are a very good alternative to conventional braces.
What are lingual braces?
Show your smile, not your braces
The lingual system describes fixed braces that are gently attached to the inside of the teeth, making the braces practically invisible from the outside. Lingual braces therefore meet the highest aesthetic and medical standards. With the help of the lingual system, teeth can be corrected just as successfully as with more conspicuous braces on the outside of the teeth. Lingual braces therefore ensure a beautiful smile without aesthetic restrictions for the patient during the treatment. In addition, internal braces are much more gentle on the teeth, as the inside of the teeth is more resistant to demineralisation and caries.
What kind of braces are used for the lingual system?
We exclusively use the Incognito system and WIN system, which are custom-made brackets. The Incognito system uses golden brackets and is therefore nickel-free. It is furthermore particularly suitable for people who suffer from nickel and similar allergies. Just like Incognito, WIN lingual braces are of the highest quality and are also custom-made. It is the most frequently used lingual system in our practice.
