At Belmar Orthodontics, we are excited to be able to offer adults and teenagers an alternative to traditional metal braces with hidden lingual braces! Adults and teenagers alike will sometimes avoid needed orthodontic treatment because they find traditional metal braces to be unattractive, distracting, or they feel they make them look childish. With Lingual Braces, you can achieve the same results as traditional braces with a hidden treatment apparatus on the tongue-side of your teeth. Hidden braces can achieve the same results as traditional orthodontics in a manner that is inconspicuous and undetectable. By discreetly attaching the braces to the back of the teeth, Dr. Hardy can help you achieve healthy, straight, beautiful-looking teeth. With hidden braces, you don’t have to choose between having the orthodontic treatment you need or putting it off due to aesthetic concerns.
Advantages of Lingual Braces
Our patients love them because they are invisible when they smile allowing them to share their beautiful smiles with confidence during treatment. While Invisalign offers similar cosmetic benefits, hidden braces are always on and always working toward giving you the results you need and want. Unlike Invisalign, you don’t have clear aligners that you have to remove and clean every time you eat. And, you don’t have to worry that you will misplace or lose them.
If you are an athlete, a musician who plays a wind instrument, or a patient who is not a candidate for Invisalign®, but wish to have a more discreet orthodontic treatment option, Hidden Braces are for you.
