Lingual Braces FAQs

How discreet are lingual braces?

Lingual braces are located on the inner side of the teeth, facing the tongue. As they are not facing the outside of your mouth, no one will be able to notice you are wearing braces.

How long will my treatment take?

The length of the treatment varies depending on the severity of your case, but it can take anywhere from a few months to 24 months.

Will the treatment be painful?

Lingual braces are very similar to traditional braces, apart from the fact they are located on the inner side of your teeth. As a result, you may feel the same kind of discomfort as with traditional braces. However, the discomfort is temporary, and will only be noticed for a few days after we place your braces, and when we tighten them during one of your regular visits to the clinic. As you get used to wearing your braces, you will soon not notice them anymore.

Will I be able to eat and drink anything I want during my treatment?

To avoid damaging your braces, it is recommended not to eat certain foods. The two main categories to avoid are chewy foods (such as liquorice, caramel and sweets) and

foods that are crunchy or require biting into (like corn on the hob, apples, hard sweets or nuts).

How often will I need to visit the clinic during my treatment?

Generally, you will need to visit the clinic to adjust your braces every six to eight weeks.
