First, your Chicago and Chicago suburbs orthodontist Dr. Yarmolyuk will need to take impressions of your teeth. The impressions are then sent off to a specialist laboratory where each bracket in your lingual brace is custom made to fit your teeth. During your follow-up visit the orthodontist will transfer the brackets to the back of your teeth and cement them in place.
Lingual braces have several advantages over traditional braces. The main advantage is cosmetic, as lingual braces aren’t visible from the front which makes them an excellent option for patients who wish to avoid the highly-visible traditional braces. In addition to being completely invisible, your lingual braces will straighten and align your teeth in the same time frame as traditional braces (which can vary depending on the severity of the case). In many cases traditional braces aren’t suited to patients who play contact sports or certain wind instruments, making lingual braces the safest and most convenient option.
