Lingual orthodontics is the correction of misaligned teeth, using a fixed invisible brace, bonded on the inner (lingual) surface of the teeth. A lingual brace works like a conventional fixed brace with full control and movement of the teeth but it is invisible, the only person who knows you have a brace is you.
Today the great advantage of lingual orthodontics is that no one can notice that the patient is wearing braces; the patient can keep on with his normal lifestyle while wearing the appliance, which will discreetly correct his teeth and improve his smile. Patients today want to obtain well aligned teeth after orthodontic treatment, but also to be able to smile during treatment without having to show unaesthetic conventional braces. Lingual orthodontics can be for everyone, if you have healthy gums and bones.

Domande frequenti FAQ
Adults have a tendency to think “it’s too late for me”, but there is no age limit for wearing braces, as long as you have healthy gums and bones..
Lingual braces can be applied at any age, provided that deciduous teeth are still not in the mouth, making it useful also for adolescents who are often “hostile” to conventional braces because of its unsightly implications.
Lingual appliances and clear aligners (aligners in the Invisalign technique) attract anyone who wants to align their teeth and search for an “invisible solution”. However many cases are not suitable for Invisalign because they require a high level of 3-D (three-dimensional) control of the dental movement that only a fixed device such as the lingual one can provide. Lingual braces also allow for more predictable results because it is not up to patient compliance, that would be to wear the aligners used in the Invisalign technique for 24 hours a day. With the lingual device you will see your smile improve whilst we invisibly control your treatment and you will no longer have to remember to wear aligners or worry about losing them.
The advantages are not only aesthetic but also in terms of dental health; in fact lingual braces are bonded on the inner surface of the teeth where the dental enamel is more resistant to decalcification or decay processes. This can stain teeth in some cases at the end of conventional therapies with braces bonded on the outside tooth surface. If this occurs with lingual appliance, the internal location would allow a more painless restoration in terms of aesthetic integrity of the compromised tooth.
