How is the Treatment Performed?
Unlike all other traditional methods of teeth realignment, Lingual Braces are placed at the back of the teeth rather than the front. This allows them to offer all the benefits of fixed braces, but with the added bonus of being concealed behind your natural smile throughout the length of the treatment. After the customised brackets are created from an impression made from your teeth, the doctor will cement them to the back surfaces of the teeth using a special process.
From then, much like traditional braces, a gentle pressure will continually be applied to your teeth allowing them to slowly move into the desired position. The treatment time will vary in length depending on the individual patient’s requirements, and the severity of their misalignment.

Are lingual braces permanent?
Yes, the lingual braces are permanently attached to the patient’s teeth. However, unlike traditional braces, lingual braces are attached to the backside of teeth. This means they are not visible when a person speaks, eats, or laughs. As a result, the patients will not have to be conscious of their facial appearance due to the presence of metal inside their mouths.
Do lingual braces hurt your tongue?
Just like any other treatment lingual braces will also cause soreness and discomfort in the beginning. The tongue will be the direct target in this case as lingual braces will be in direct contact with the tongue. However, the intensity of pain varies from patient to patient. For some, it may just be a dull ache while for others it may be significant. Moreover, patients also suffer from a lisp during the first few weeks until their tongue gets accustomed to the braces. This condition is not permanent and once the braces have had time to settle in, it will also fade.
Do lingual braces work faster?
The answer is no. Lingual braces in most cases take longer than traditional braces. The estimated treatment duration is around twelve months. Moreover, after every six to ten weeks, follow-up treatments are required. The reason behind the longer duration is that lingual braces require a more delicate and intensive treatment as compared to the traditional method.
What can you not eat with lingual braces?
With any type of braces, eating becomes difficult and it is no different with lingual braces. Any hard food will cause discomfort and frustration. It can get trapped in braces and even damage them. So, avoid eating hard and crunchy food items. The food items that require a lot of chewing and have the potential to stick, should also be avoided. Try to avoid food items such as raw vegetables, apples, nuts, pizza crust, hard rolls, candies, gums, and toffees. Softer food items such as boiled rice, pasta, cooked vegetables, bananas, and bread should be included in the patient’s diet.
