Lingual Braces – Columbus, OH

Achieve a Beautiful Smile with Hidden Braces

hidden braces in mirrorTraditionally, braces are placed on the front of the teeth, but with lingual/hidden braces, they are actually placed on the back. They are the perfect choice for adults who would like to straighten their teeth without affecting their appearance during treatment. At the Columbus Orthodontic Center, we provide Incognito lingual braces which can be fully customized for every patient.

THE ADVANTAGES OF LINGUAL / HIDDEN BRACES:

HOW LINGUAL BRACES WORK

Traditional braces work by applying gentle pressure to the teeth to gradually reposition them over time. Lingual braces do the same thing; they are just placed in a different position on the teeth, providing aesthetics that are superior to their traditional counterparts.

Lingual braces can fix most of the same orthodontic issues as traditional braces. Most teenagers and adults are good candidates for this treatment.

WHAT TO EXPECT DURING TREATMENT

Here are some notes on what to expect throughout your treatment:

THE COST OF LINGUAL BRACES

Placing lingual braces is a delicate process that requires an orthodontist to have specialized training. That’s because both the brackets and the wires must be customized to fit a patient’s individual teeth. Therefore, lingual braces generally cost significantly more than traditional, front-facing braces. However, if aesthetics are important to you, you may decide that lingual braces are a worthwhile investment! Lingual braces are even less noticeable than clear aligners like Invisalign. You’ll be able to smile with complete confidence throughout your treatment time, whether you are going on a first date, giving a presentation in front of your coworkers, or chatting with the barista at your favorite coffee shop.

We’re happy to work with patients to help them afford lingual braces. Our team can help you explore your insurance options and help you apply for CareCredit, which offers affordable financing for dental and medical treatments.
