So, you’ve been considering braces. But as an adult you don’t want to be stuck with “metal mouth” for years! You have a life to lead, and the idea of wearing braces definitely doesn’t fit in with your work and personal life! At Panama City Smiles we’ve been providing braces for our patients for years, and we’ve become incredibly skilled at creating new smiles without any visible hardware!

The secret doesn’t lie in plastic trays – those are a great solution for patients with modern cosmetic problems, and we’re proud to offer ClearCorrect treatment for those who want it! The secret to getting real braces invisibly at our Panama City dentist office is lingual braces that sit on the back of your teeth!

What Are Lingual Braces?

The word lingual is used to mean anything to do with the tongue. Lingual braces are specially designed braces that sit on the backs of your teeth so no one will ever see them! Using the same basic principles as traditional braces, lingual braces provide a great, straight smile without anyone ever seeing them!

Also called Incognito braces, lingual braces are specially designed to sit on the backs of your teeth without causing the pain and discomfort of traditional orthodontic solutions. It’s normal for orthodontic patients to complain of pain due to the brackets injuring their cheeks, but lingual braces are shaped in a way that will prevent any injury to your tongue!

Patients at our practice who have worn lingual braces have been surprised at how easy they were to get used to! You might think having braces on the backs of your teeth would make life difficult but they are surprisingly easy to adapt to!

Treatment with lingual braces is similar in time and scope to regular braces. You could wear them for up to two years, but imagine the final result – and all without someone noticing that you wore braces at all!

Why Get Lingual Braces?

If you’re interested in quick cosmetic solutions then lingual braces aren’t for you. What lingual braces will do for you is truly reshape your smile and provide amazing results without the visibility of traditional braces. Lingual braces are ideal for patients who need bite correction, straighter teeth, and other conditions treatable by traditional orthodontics.

If you want to get real results that will resolve overcrowding, an open bite, an over or underbite, and any other kinds of malocclusion that are treated with traditional braces then lingual braces are for you! We’d be thrilled to help correct your smile with this invisible system!

Getting Lingual Braces

We’ll always start with a full exam of your teeth and mouth before beginning a procedure like Incognito braces. We want to be sure you’re healthy and can get the best benefit from your new smile!

Once we know you’ll be a good candidate for lingual braces we’ll schedule the time to attach your brackets. We’ll also take impressions of your teeth prior to your first visit – we want to be sure we get your brackets custom made to fit your teeth!

At your first braces appointment we’ll attach the brackets and let the adhesive set them in place. You’ll also have your wires and rubber bands attached and you’ll be ready to start experiencing the great results that lingual braces can provide!

Like we mentioned earlier, lingual braces can take some time to get used to. You might feel uncomfortable for a couple of weeks but after that you should feel just fine wearing your new braces!
