Lingual braces are invisible treatment methodologies where the braces are mounted on the lingual or tongue side of the teeth. They are thus hidden from view and not noticeable. It consists of all the appliances that are used in conventional braces such as brackets, wires, and elastics which help in adjusting teeth into the appropriate position. Both conventional inside and outside braces share the same hardware and orthodontic principles. One of the biggest advantages of lingual braces remains that they cannot be seen. Further, the range of their capabilities is a correction of rotations, altering the height of teeth and closure of spaces formed during extraction.

Lingual braces require complex placement procedures that can be very challenging. Experts at Dental Solutions, Bangalore are trained to place lingual braces on the inside using smaller wires that are light and need to be placed on the compact side of the teeth. With sophisticated CAD/CAM technology, brackets are placed with precision including minute and tricky adjustments that have to be made. Dental Solutions uses some of the latest lingual systems available that are different from the conventional braces worn on the front. The braces, metal wires, and other components are custom-made to suit each patient. Both upper and lower brackets are cemented together at the same time. Accurate and detailed impressions of the upper and lower teeth are taken after which the orthodontic lab fabricates the braces. The fabrication is then scanned through the CAD/CAM and placed in an applicator tray. The brackets are then cemented into place. The applicator tray is broken away once the cement has set.
Doctors at Dental Solutions ensure inspection of each individual bracket after the completion of the treatment.
