Lingual Braces        

Can you tell which one of our patients is wearing braces?

All of them! Here’s why Invisible Braces are so cool:

One of the specialties in our office is lingual, or invisible braces. They fit on the backside of your teeth and are completely invisible, allowing you smile more confidently than ever.

Sometimes called “Hidden” or “Inside” braces, they work just like regular braces by applying a gentle and continuous pressure to your teeth, helping them shift into the proper position.

Lingual braces, due to their custom-fit nature, are an amazing cosmetic feature. They do require more cooperation from you in regards to hygiene and adhering to our food guidelines, as treatment is a little bit more involved with this type of bracket. They may also take a little longer to adjust to than our regular SPEED Brackets, especially if a patient has a tongue thrust, which occurs when a patient presses their tongue against the back of their teeth where the braces sit.

Our Livonia Orthodontic office has many professionals currently being treated with lingual technology — including dentists! Invisible braces are also much easier to adapt to for musicians that may play a wind instrument.

Dr. Shaw and Dr. Jane were two of the first orthodontists certified in the state of Michigan in the full use of Lingual Braces technology and are considered experts in the use of invisible braces to treat a wide array of orthodontic problems.

Call our office today to schedule a complimentary consultation to see if our invisible braces are right for you!

I’m very pleased with the outcome of my treatment. My teeth are straight and beautiful. The lingual option was a great choice for my personally. I was able to enjoy the look of my newly straightened teeth throughout the whole process. The staff was always friendly and professional.”
