STb Social 6 Lingual Braces at Harley Street Dental Studio
The STb Social 6 Lingual system is regarded as one of the best solutions for people who have mild or moderate orthodontic problems. This treatment is ideal for people who want to improve the aesthetic of their smile without the worry of wearing highly visible braces. Lingual braces are different to traditional orthodontic treatments because the braces are fixed to the back of the teeth, meaning that they are invisible to other people.
Who can benefit from STb Social 6 Lingual braces?
STb Social 6 Lingual braces are not suitable for everyone. They are recommended for people with mild or moderate orthodontic problems, and are most commonly used to treat overcrowding of the front teeth or gaps between the front teeth. If you have more severe problems or issues relating to the teeth at the back of the mouth, another treatment may be recommended by the team at Harley Street Dental Studio.
How do STb Social 6 Lingual braces work?
The system works by using the most advanced dental technology to gently guide the teeth into the correct position. The braces use self-ligating technology, which moves the teeth without causing any pain or friction.
What are the advantages of STb Social 6 Lingual braces?
- The major advantage of STb Social 6 Lingual braces is that they are practically invisible to other people. This means that you can get the smile you want without anyone realising that you are even wearing braces.
- The treatment time is also very short compared to several other orthodontic treatments. In most cases, treatment is complete within 16 weeks.
- The STb Social 6 system provides a perfect solution for people who need minor adjustment to their teeth. The quick treatment time makes it possible for people to get the smile of their dreams in time for a special occasion, such as a wedding.
- Many people may assume that wearing lingual braces is painful because of the proximity of the tongue to the braces. However, the STb system uses high-tech self-ligating technology to prevent uncomfortable friction.
