Lingual Braces by Ridgway Dental in Wimbledon Village London
What are Lingual Braces?
Lingual braces are an advanced type of braces developed primarily to solve cosmetic issues that surround highly visible braces. Traditional braces, even clear ones, can be off-putting for some people. Patients, especially adults, consider the impact on looks a big factor when deciding whether or not to undergo orthodontic treatments.
Technological advancements in the field of dentistry have brought the development of Lingual braces. Dentists are now better able to accurately plot teeth and their movement. This allows the braces to now be installed on the inside tooth surface. This is where it takes its name, lingual meaning tongue.
How it Works
A dentist at our clinic will first take impressions of the patient’s teeth. Afterwards, a laboratory will create custom-fitted brackets for the teeth. On the next visit, the dentist will cement the brackets on the inner side of the patient’s teeth. Just like in traditional braces, the wiring and system supply constant pressure on teeth, gently easing them into their ideal position on the jaw.
The Cost of Lingual Braces
Lingual braces are less expensive than Invisalign, another effective near-invisible teeth-straightening solution. Lingual braces in London cost around £4,000 per arch. For lingual braces in Wimbledon, the sound option would be to consult with us.
