Are Lingual Braces Right for You?

vbraces5With so many different kinds of “invisible braces” on the market, how do you know which ones are right for you? Lingual braces are traditional metal braces which are placed behind the teeth, instead of in front, making them truly invisible to anyone who sees your smile. If you want to straighten your teeth without anyone being able to see the hardware in your mouth during the process, this may be the right choice for you.

While there is the obvious cosmetic benefit, there are some cons to lingual braces as well. The straightening process takes longer, and some patients have difficulty adjusting to the crowding of their tongue and have issues speaking and swallowing. The braces behind the teeth are also harder to keep clean.

Is In-Ovation C or Invisalign a Better Option than Lingual Braces?

Each patient's mouth is different and has to be treated with a personalized treatment plan. The right braces option for one is not the right for another. In-Ovation C is a more gentle form of orthodontic treatment. Patients do not experience as much pain and discomfort, as the way the braces are attached creates less friction on the teeth.

Invisalign braces are a popular choice for several reasons. They are a series of clear plastic, custom made mouth pieces which fit over the teeth. Other than being barely noticeable, the other plus is they can be removed for eating, drinking and brushing teeth (making the hygiene much easier to maintain).They are replaced every two weeks.

The best way to determine the right choice for your own orthodontic treatment, or your child's treatment, is to choose an orthodontic specialist you can trust. Dr. Ogden has over 25 years of experience and three office locations in Central Florida. You can choose from the Clermont, Mount Dora, or Windermere office based on what will be most convenient for your own busy schedule, as there are regular visits required for maintenance after the braces are installed.

As a parent himself, Dr. Ogden understands the challenges involved in seeking orthodontic treatment for your child. Furthermore, he knows it takes a combination of the right treatment at the right time to get the best results. Just as the recommended treatment will differ from person to person, the recommended age to begin treatment will also differ. There may be overbite or underbite corrective treatment required before braces are applied.

Whichever course of treatment you and Dr. Ogden decide on, In-Ovation C, Invisalign, or lingual Braces, you can trust Dr. Ogden and his staff every step of the way.
