If your child is embarrassed by the idea of wearing metal braces, they may have the option to wear braces behind their teeth, or lingual braces.
This type of braces works just like regular braces, only they are hidden behind the teeth instead of in front for everyone to see.
Lingual braces, also known as behind-the-teeth braces, are used for the same reason as traditional metal braces—if your child has crooked or crowded teeth, this type of braces can help align his or her teeth and prevent future problems.
Using braces can also help with your child’s confidence in knowing they can have a beautiful, healthy smile after treatment.
The advantage of having braces behind your child’s teeth is that they can’t be seen. Rather than having clunky metal braces showing every time your child smiles, braces that are set behind the teeth can’t be seen by anyone except your child’s orthodontist.
There are a few disadvantages that come with lingual braces that are important to note:
