LINGUAL (INVISIBLE) BRACES
Dr. Metelka is one of a very few orthodontists trained in Lingual Orthodontics. Because they are placed behind your teeth they are the only truly "invisible" treatment available. Dr. Metelka has been providing Lingual Orthodontics for over 20 years. Currently approximately 20% of our orthodontic patients are in lingual braces!
Lingual brackets are attached to the back side of the teeth, which have their own unique shape - unlike the front of each tooth, which is fairly uniform. Standard brackets are mass-produced, but each lingual bracket must be custom-formed to the unique shape of each individual tooth, providing for the ultimate in comfort and care.
There are many reasons to choose Lingual Braces:
- Aesthetics: Because they are placed on the back side or your teeth, you can look great while you straighten your teeth…invisibly
- Comfort: Most patients experience minimal discomfort and speech interference - after a short adjustment period you will be able to eat and speak normally
- Experience: Dr. Metelka has successfully completed hundreds of Lingual cases over the past 20 years
Will my speech be affected?
