Lingual braces

At The Forum Orthodontics, we speak with many adult patients who would really like to straighten their teeth and to no longer feel self-conscious about smiling for photos. However, although they know that orthodontic treatment is the answer, they don’t want the embarrassment of wearing braces.

What many of them hadn’t realised is that we offer lingual braces. 

What are lingual braces?

Lingual braces look just like classic braces except for one distinct difference – you can’t see them. That is because the braces are fixed to the back surface of your teeth, rather than the front. They are custom-made to your teeth, so the brackets fit comfortably (once you get used to them), and the archwires help the brackets to apply gentle pressure to move your teeth. 

This means the braces can’t be seen and the risk of decalcification occurring on your teeth is reduced. (Decalcification is when plaque builds up on your teeth and white spots appear on the surface.) 

Effective treatment option

Lingual braces use the same technology as classic and clear braces so are proven to straighten your teeth. They are a more expensive option but for many of our adult patients, this investment is worth it as they don’t need to worry about being seen with a mouth full of metal!

Dr Keith Jackson BDS, FDS, RCS

GDC Number: 60123

Keith Jackson left his native Northern Ireland in 1980 to commence his study of Dentistry at Newcastle University, completing his degree in 1985, taking with him as well very happy memories of his time in the North East.

He decided to continue his dental education, developing more advanced skills - initially at The Charles Clifford Dental Hospital, followed by Doncaster Royal Infirmary and finally The Birmingham Dental Hospital. After this four-year period of post-graduate study, he became a Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow. Keith began his practice career as an associate at The Riversdale Dental Practice in Gainsborough and had the opportunity two years later to buy the practice from the existing owner – who was heading back to the Emerald isle.

Caring for your lingual braces

As with any other orthodontic appliance, it’s essential you take care of your oral hygiene when wearing lingual braces. We will give you specific instructions but, as a guide, you need to brush your teeth twice a day for at least two minutes and floss daily. We also encourage you to use a fluoride mouthwash. 

3 benefits of lingual braces

  • They’re discreet – because the braces are fitted to the back of your teeth next to your tongue, no one can see them.
  • They achieve great results – lingual braces use the same method as classic braces do to straighten your teeth so you’re guaranteed great results.
  • They give you reason to smile – not only will you get a beautiful smile from lingual braces, you’ll be smiling throughout treatment knowing those around you can’t see you’re wearing braces.
