Lingual Braces – Frequently Asked Questions
• Can any dentist provide lingual braces?
No. Lingual braces require special training. The technique is very different than regular braces. Dr. DePaul was trained by one of the most respected leaders in the field of lingual braces. Dr. DePaul then adapted his Powerprox Six Month Braces® Technique to allow the use of lingual braces.
• Can you use lingual braces on both the upper and lower teeth?
Yes we can. Another common combination is upper lingual braces with lower clear braces.
• Do lingual braces cost more than regular braces?
Yes. Since the lingual braces have to be custom made to fit your teeth and the lingual braces treatment requires special training for the doctor, lingual braces are generally more expensive than regular braces.
• Are Lingual braces harder to adjust to than regular braces?
Both regular braces and lingual braces require an adjustment period. The difference is that lingual braces will affect the tongue, whereas regular braces affect the lips and cheeks. Also your speech may initially be affected with lingual braces. We use various comfort aids to help you through this adjustment period. This period usually lasts from 1 to 4 weeks.
• Are the final results as good with lingual braces as they are with regular braces?
Yes. You will have straight teeth and a beautiful smile and no one will know you are wearing braces.
