2D Lingual Fixed Braces
Fixed braces are a tried and tested method of straightening teeth. But not everyone is comfortable with the idea of having unsightly metal brackets on show.
What if you could combine this traditional procedure with advances in dentistry to create a straightening process that is so discreet, it is practically invisible.
That’s just what the developers of 2D Lingual Braces had in mind when developing this revolutionary straightener.
The system uses a series of low profile brackets affixed to the rear of the teeth where no one will ever spot you are wearing them.
What are 2D lingual fixed braces?
2D lingual fixed braces are an option that is chosen by many thanks to the fact that they are incredibly subtle. Regular braces are fitted in front of the teeth, which means that even if clear brackets and wires are used, they could still be noticeable. However, lingual braces fit behind the teeth, under the tongue, which makes visibility much less of a problem.
How do the braces work to straighten teeth?
These braces work very much in the same way that other braces work, the only difference being that they are not visible from the outside of your mouth. This, of course, gives it a massive advantage.
Brackets are attached to each of your teeth, on the back, under your tongue. They are held together with wires, and these can be tightened as needed. Initially, you should find that your braces are quite comfortable, with the only slight discomfort occurring when you come in to have them tightened. This tightening can help your teeth to be moved into the position that you wish them to be in eventually.
Once you are happy that your teeth are straight, we will be able to remove the braces for you. The great thing about this is that, because they were placed on the back of your teeth, no marks will be left – meaning that you will be immediately satisfied with the results that we have achieved with the treatment.
How can I take care of my 2D lingual brace?
Taking care of your brace is relatively easy if you get into a good routine of dental hygiene. Brushing every day is essential, and you will also need to floss, although you should take great care when doing this so that you don’t damage your brace.
Mouthwash can also be used to keep bacteria to a minimum, as there is always the risk of it building up while you’re wearing a brace. By taking care of your teeth correctly while wearing the brace, you are ensuring that your treatment is as effective as possible.
