Your lingual braces treatment journey

Initial consultation

During your initial consultation with specialist orthodontist, David Gale, we make sure you are suitable for lingual braces and discuss your ideal results and smile goals. We explain the treatment in detail, giving you the chance to ask any questions, and give you an idea of expected treatment time and costs.

Treatment planning

We take digital scans and images of your teeth, which are used to create your accurate lingual brackets. When the brackets are ready, we fix them to the back of your teeth and position the archwire to exert gentle forces onto your teeth.

Nearly invisible straightening

Your lingual braces straighten your teeth over a number of months, working in the same way as traditional fixed braces but unable to be seen when you smile or talk. We see you in our specialist orthodontic practice for regular appointments, where we check your treatment is on track and make adjustments to your brace if necessary.

Your brand new smile!

When you come to the end of treatment, we gently remove your lingual brace and complete your new smile. We make sure you are happy with the way your teeth look and give you a retainer to keep them in their new positions for the long term.

What are lingual braces?

Lingual braces are a nearly invisible orthodontic system; a new generation of braces for people of all ages who do not want their brace to show when they talk or eat. They are very popular with adults searching for a reliable and discreet way to straighten their teeth, and can also be used in younger patients where aesthetics are important.

Lingual braces are custom made, ensuring accuracy. The placement of the brackets on the back of your teeth is carefully planned and controlled to ensure the best results. David Gale has completed additional complex training to provide this specialist treatment and help increase your confidence in your smile.

Frequently Asked Questions
Can I have lingual braces?

Lingual braces have now become widely acceptable and can be considered as an option for the majority of patients of all ages. You need to show good compliance and flexibility with regards to appointment times due to the complexity of the treatment. We will discuss your suitability for lingual braces during your initial consultation.

How long does lingual braces treatment take?

Your lingual brace treatment will take around 12-18 months, depending on your individual case, the level of complexity and how far your teeth need to move to achieve your ideal result. We will give you a more exact timeframe during your first appointment.

Will other people be able to see my lingual braces?

With a lingual brace, your friends and acquaintances will not need to know you are wearing a brace, or be able to see it is there unless you tell them! This may be important for people who work with the public, have an upcoming special event or would prefer a more aesthetic treatment option.

Why do I need a retainer?

Retainers are essential following all types of orthodontic treatment. Your retainer is used to keep your teeth in their new straight positions, ensuring your hard work during treatment is not reversed. Teeth have a habit of moving out of position, so wearing a retainer for the long term (usually overnight) makes your new smile stay straight.

Do lingual braces hurt?

You may notice some discomfort after your lingual brace is fitted, and each time it is adjusted, but this is short-lived and does indicate that your treatment is working. It will fade after a few days, and can be managed with over-the-counter paracetamol, if necessary. As they are on the back surface of your teeth, lingual braces can cause some irritation to your tongue at first, but this is also temporary and will go once you get used to the brace in your mouth.
