Why Are Lingual Braces the Better Option?

There are many orthodontic appliances to choose from, but patients sometimes feel they need to compromise either the tried-and-true results or their smile’s appearance while undergoing treatment. Lingual braces offer the best of both worlds. Not only are they highly effective, with up to 96 percent of all patients who have undergone treatment reporting having a straighter smile after five years, but they’re also placed on the backside of teeth, making them hardly noticeable.  Lingual braces are working 24/7 for a great smile since they are attached to the back of the teeth. There are no messy plastic trays to keep track of and keep clean!

Lingual Braces are for Patients of All Kinds

Due to the aesthetic and functional advantages of lingual braces in Houston, they’re an excellent option for all types of patients, including:

  • Teenagers
  • Patients looking for the best orthodontic results
  • Patients who want to maintain the natural appearance of their smile while undergoing treatment
  • Adults who work in professional or public environments
  • Teens and adults who play wind instruments or participate in contact sports
  • Patients who have had previous orthodontic treatment that didn’t provide them with the results they were hoping for

Lingual Braces FAQs

If you do not see that your specific questions are addressed, give us a call. We look forward to chatting with you!

Will Lingual Braces Affect My Speech?

Some patients notice minor changes in their speech when they first get lingual braces. However, such issues usually disappear within a few days.   98% of patients with new lingual braces have adapted in the first week of treatment.

How Should I Clean My Teeth with Lingual Braces?

It is important that you stick to a good routine of brushing and flossing throughout your orthodontic treatment period. Our team can teach you the techniques you need to thoroughly clean your teeth while wearing lingual braces.   It might take a bit of time to adapt to your new habits, but they will pay off in the end!

Do Lingual Braces Hurt?

Lingual braces are customized for each patient, because of this they are smaller and more comfortable than traditional outside braces.  However, you must remember that orthodontic treatment works because it applies pressure to the teeth. Lingual braces use wires that are smaller yet more effective than regular braces. Because the wires are smaller, they use less force but move the teeth more efficiently.  Less force means less discomfort.

If you ever experience significant or unusual discomfort during your treatment, give us a call. We will do all we can to assist you.

Why Don’t All Orthodontist Offer Lingual Braces?

It takes extra training and specialized knowledge to provide lingual braces. Because of that, most orthodontists choose not to offer this treatment. However, since Dr. Hall is committed to providing his patients with a variety of top-quality treatment options, he is proud to provide custom lingual braces along with traditional outside, and plastic aligners.  He pays great attention to detail, so each case proceeds as smoothly and efficiently as possible.  Dr. Hall has received specialized Lingual braces training at numerous exclusive conferences in the US and Europe.

Do Lingual Braces Cost More?

We can provide detailed financial information when you visit us for your consultation. Lingual braces do cost more than their traditional counterparts. That is because the treatment process is more complex, results are superior, and more predictable than any other method of orthodontics.  Patients who choose lingual braces believe they are worth it because of the many benefits they offer, such as outstanding aesthetics and precise, predictable results!

If you are concerned about being able to afford your treatment, you may have some option and that most patients qualify for low-interest or no-interest financing.
