Lingual Braces Offer A Discreet Alternative To Clear Aligners

2904346_blogIf you’re searching for an orthodontic treatment, which promises to straighten the teeth in secret, we have the perfect treatment for you. Lingual braces offer a discreet alternative to fixed braces and clear aligners and can help you to achieve your dream smile without anyone even knowing.

Lingual braces work in a similar way to traditional fixed braces, but there is one major difference; these braces are secured onto the lingual side of the teeth (the back of the teeth. This means that your smile will look exactly the same as it did before treatment once your braces have been fitted; you can smile, speak, sing and laugh without anyone being able to tell that you’re wearing a brace.

About STb Social 6 braces

We are delighted to have STb Social 6 as part of our orthodontic range. This impressive lingual brace system provides an invisible treatment option for patients who have minor issues that concern the social 6, the teeth at the front of the mouth.

STb Social 6 braces are small and light and they use hi-tech, self-ligating wires to minimise friction; they are a great solution for teenagers and adults who want to achieve results without the worries associated with wearing visible braces. As these braces focus on the front teeth only and are aimed at patients with minor issues, treatment times are very short. The average patient wears their braces for just 6-16 weeks.

Which is best: lingual braces or clear aligners?

There are pros and cons with both types of treatment. Lingual braces and clear aligners both offer discretion, but lingual braces are a truly invisible option; they also provide greater support for the teeth and guarantee results, whereas the success of aligners is highly dependent on the individual. Some people prefer the flexibility of removable aligners and aligners tend to be more comfortable and easier to live with, as they can be taken out when you eat and brush your teeth. Sometimes, one kind of treatment is better suited, so your dentist will discuss the advantages and disadvantages of each system with you once they have assessed your needs and analysed your bite.
