Metal Braces That Give a Discreet Smile For Patients in London


How can we help?

Harley Street Dental Studio now offers a range of treatments for patients who need help in correcting slight problems with their teeth. Orthodontic braces can be used to help with several problems, ranging from gaps between teeth to teeth which stick out too far. One brace solution offered by Harley Street Dental Studio in London, which may be particularly helpful to people who might feel embarrassed by visible, traditional metal braces is the STb Social 6 Lingual braces.

What is a lingual brace and how does it work?

Unlike traditional braces, a lingual brace fits to the side of the teeth nearest the tongue. This means that the braces are almost invisible to other people. The braces work in a similar fashion to other braces, using gentle pressure to guide the teeth into a corrected position. However, unlike some other braces, STb Social 6 Lingual braces use self-ligating technology, which ensures that there is very little discomfort and friction caused by wearing the braces, even though they are so near the tongue. As with other braces, special attention must be paid to oral hygiene while wearing the braces, although this need not be difficult – just be thorough when cleaning your teeth and use mouthwash.

What are the advantages and disadvantages of STb Social 6 Lingual braces?

Because they fit to the back of the teeth, STb Social 6 Lingual braces eliminate any need to feel self-conscious about your appearance. Treatment times with this type of brace also tend to be relatively quick; treatment is usually complete within sixteen weeks. Like any orthodontic treatment, lingual braces may feel odd in the mouth at first, but any minor pains will go as you get used to the braces. STb Social 6 braces are not suitable for all treatments, and are used to treat more minor problems, usually in the front teeth. In other cases, another type of brace might be necessary.
