Achieve a beautiful smile with lingual braces

As the leading orthodontist in Birmingham and the Midlands, we specialise in offering lingual braces. For those in search of a discrete, effective orthodontic treatment, lingual braces present an ideal option.

These appliances share similar structure with traditional fixed braces, but with one significant difference – they are attached to the back of your teeth. Each metal bracket is individually crafted to fit every tooth perfectly, minimising any discomfort or interference with your tongue.

While this meticulous level of construction does imply additional costs compared to standard braces, for those who wish to keep their orthodontic treatment invisible while achieving a beautiful smile, lingual braces in Birmingham provide a predictable, safe, and perfect outcome.

In comparison with clear plastic aligners like Invisalign, lingual braces offer distinct advantages:

  1. The utter discretion of lingual braces means no one can tell you’re undergoing orthodontic treatment. Even on close inspection, these braces remain hidden from view, unlike aligners.
  2. As a fixed appliance, lingual braces offer a more versatile range of adjustments they can reliably execute.

However, keep in mind that lingual braces require expert handling and a highly experienced specialist orthodontist for successful delivery. This is where our principal dentist, specialist orthodontist Rob Slater, stands out.

Rob was one of the first in the UK to obtain a master’s degree in lingual orthodontics and the pioneer to introduce them consistently in the Midlands. As a founding member and chairman of the British Lingual Orthodontic Society, there’s no one better placed to deliver this treatment.

For those considering Lingual Braces in Birmingham, here are some key advantages

  • The blend of efficiency and invisibility makes lingual braces an effective and unnoticeable treatment choice.
  • There is no risk of damaging the healthy enamel on the front of your teeth during the debonding process and removal of residual adhesive.
  • Lingual braces are suitable for complex multidisciplinary treatments.

What to expect from your lingual braces treatment

The placement of lingual braces next to the tongue means a slightly longer adjustment period compared to other types of braces.

Just like with standard fixed braces, you might experience temporary sensitivity and tightness after adjustments. It’s advisable to avoid hard, chewy foods and fizzy drinks during this period.

For individuals engaged in contact sports, we recommend using a gum shield to protect both your teeth and your orthodontic appliance. Lingual braces may temporarily affect your speech due to the appliance’s placement, but rest assured, your mouth will adjust quickly.

Lingual Braces FAQs

This is not always the case but while braces on the outside of the teeth can cause discomfort to the lips and cheeks, lingual braces tend to cause more discomfort to the tongue.

Yes, in the first few days, but most people recover from this and very few people have an issue three months after the braces have been fitted. People who speak a lot in their job tend to improve their speech far quicker.

Not really, unless you show them off.

Yes, lingual braces tend to be more expensive, due to the extra laboratory costs, the difficulty of access to the brace and the time taken to carry out adjustments.

It is not uncommon to do this but most are temporary and tooth coloured and so very difficult to see.
