Lingual braces are the same as the standard metal braces commonly found around Portland, with the only difference being they’re behind the teeth instead of in the front, making them practically invisible. Lingual braces are individually made to fit the shape and size of your mouth.
Lingual braces are a great option for models, athletes, and for those working in similar fields- however, they’re much more expensive than traditional braces, as well as harder to clean. Regular adjustments will take longer and will be more difficult, as well. They can be uncomfortable to start with, and are not recommended to everybody- especially those with severe cases.
