Lingual braces are becoming increasingly popular, as more and more people learn about the benefits of this innovative and unique orthodontic treatment. The brackets will be fitted to the backs of the teeth, instead of the front, which means that they are more difficult for other people to notice them.
The most obvious advantage is that the system will be almost invisible to other people, so you don’t need to worry about what others think about you having braces and you don’t need to be concerned about your appearance during the treatment process. The STb Social 6 lingual brace system uses lightweight, fine braces to move the teeth into position; these braces are very comfortable, as they use self-ligating wires to prevent friction and pain.
Treatment time with STb Social 6 braces is very short; in a matter of weeks you should notice results and you can start showing off your brand new, straight smile. Typically, treatment is complete within 4 months, making this a perfect treatment for people who are preparing to look their best for a special occasion, such as a wedding. Treatment times vary according to each individual patients and their orthodontic needs though.
Lingual braces are suitable for most patients, but the choice of system may depend on the complexity of your needs. Social 6 braces are designed for patients who have minor orthodontic problems, such as minor crowding and small gaps between the front teeth. If you have more complex needs, you may be advised to choose another treatment and we will be happy to discuss options with you and talk to you about how the different treatments work and what is involved in the treatment process.
The process of fitting lingual braces is more complex than traditional fixed braces because the shapes and contours of the backs of the teeth are different; this means that the brackets must be fitted individually. Once all the brackets are in place, the wire is threaded through and treatment can begin!
