Behind teeth braces, also known as lingual braces, are braces that fit behind the teeth rather than in front. The perk of lingual braces is that they are not easily seen. However, lingual braces can be more expensive than other options. Below we provide the pros and cons of braces installed behind teeth, as well as a few other options for your child’s smile.
At Kool Smiles, we can answer any questions about braces, including the cost with or without insurance. Call us today to schedule a no-cost braces consultation.
Braces are a big deal for kids and teens — and for you as a parent, when it comes to paying for them.
Besides appearance, are there any other benefits to choosing braces that are behind the teeth?
No. Lingual braces work in the same way as traditional braces and usually take the same time to align teeth.
What can my child eat with lingual braces?
Here are some of the foods that your child should and shouldn’t eat with lingual braces:
Are there any disadvantages to lingual braces?
Not all orthodontists offer lingual braces and they can be expensive. On top of that, some patients complain of lingual braces bothering their tongue. They are more difficult to clean and regular appointments take longer than traditional metal braces.
What is the average price of lingual braces?
The price of lingual braces varies based on whether you have insurance and what services are covered, as well as the orthodontist you choose. On average, lingual braces cost anywhere from $8,000 to $10,000.
Are there any braces that are similar to lingual braces but less expensive?
Lingual braces are the only braces that fit behind the teeth. However, there are other types of braces that are less noticeable than metal braces and less expensive than lingual braces. Two common types are invisible braces and ceramic braces.
