Dr. Claudia Torok can provide you with lingual braces to give you an orthodontic treatment with all the discretion of clear aligners or braces and all the benefits of traditional braces. Lingual braces are placed on the back surfaces of the teeth, facing the tongue, making them almost unnoticeable as well as highly effective. Call us at 310-670-5686 to make your appointment with our orthodontist and to learn more about lingual braces in Los Angeles, California.
While there are many discreet treatment options available for straightening your teeth, not all orthodontic problems can be correct with clear braces or aligners. For this reason, our practice offers lingual braces to our patients.
Lingual braces are placed on the back surfaces of the teeth, facing the tongue, which makes them nearly invisible from the outside. They are more efficient than clear aligners when correcting rotations, changing the height of teeth, and closing gaps caused by tooth extractions. An added cosmetic benefit is that any discoloration from your braces occurs on the portions of your teeth that are not visible to viewers.
When you receive lingual braces, our orthodontist will take an impression of your teeth. This impression will be sent to a dental lab, where your customized lingual brackets will be created. Lingual braces function just like traditional braces, applying gentle pressure to move your teeth over a period of time, usually 18-36 months.
If you are thinking about getting lingual braces, remember to consider the cost. The brackets for this treatment are custom made, which often makes them more expensive than traditional braces.
