Invisible Braces - Premier Orthodontics

For some people, invisible braces make the most sense, so I’d like to go over two different invisible options: lingual braces and Invisalign®. Though not all orthodontists offer lingual braces, I still believe it’s important for you to learn about them so that there’s no mystery behind the name.

Lingual Braces Behind Your Teeth

This type of braces is less common than most other kinds. This is probably because they tend to be more expensive and more difficult all around, so it makes sense that not all orthodontists offer this option. Lingual brackets are custom-made for each individual tooth and cemented to the tongue-side of the teeth. Because they aren’t on the front of the teeth, this gives them the appearance of being invisible.

The Good:

  • When you smile, people can’t see the braces.
  • Lingual braces have become more manageable than ever because of technological advancements.

The Bad:

  • The brackets can cause soreness on the tongue.
  • In some cases, a speech impediment may occur for three months or more.
  • Lingual braces are more difficult to access for your orthodontist, resulting in longer appointment times.
  • They tend to be more difficult to clean.
  • Not all orthodontists offer lingual braces.

Invisalign® Trays

Invisalign® has become a popular way to straighten teeth over the last few years. You may remember seeing commercials on TV for these clear braces when they first launched. Plastic alignment trays are used to gradually move teeth to a new position over time. Typically, a new tray is used every two or three weeks. This method of straightening your teeth is beneficial to anyone who doesn’t like the idea of hardware in their mouth.

The Good:

  • No food restrictions because you take the trays out to eat.
  • Removable trays.
  • No sores.
  • Trays are invisible.

The Bad:

  • Edges may need to be filed down.
  • This method requires a lot of self-discipline.
  • Trays have to be cleaned separately.
  • The trays should be removed if you ingest anything but water.
  • You have to brush after every meal.

The best way to know which option is the right one for you is by consulting with an orthodontist in your area. If you’ve read through some of our blogs and our website but still want more information about Premier Orthodontics, please don’t hesitate to give us a call!

"I just started taking my 5yo here and he needed a lot of work. The staff here has done an awesome job of making him comfortable during some tough procedures. After 3 pretty intense visits, he still walks right in with a smile."

"From the consultation until the completion of my daughter’s treatment, everyone at Premier was awesome to deal with. They even squeezed us in when we showed up on the wrong week for our appointment. There was literally no issues during the entire process. They communicated everything clearly and we’re always very professional, supportive, and flexible. I can’t recommend them enough, they are the best!"
