Internal braces

Internal braces

Lingual braces have a design similar to classical bracket systems, but are fixed on the inner surface of the teeth. This is their main advantage – they are absolutely invisible, but they fully fulfill their function of aligning the teeth and allow you to abandon less effective removable braces, which they try to wear only at night.

In ancient China, they also used designs that outwardly very much resemble modern braces. They were based on silver plates decorated with pearls. True, they were used as jewelry, and only women from the imperial family had the right to wear them.

So, lingual braces are an effective way to combat dental growth disorders and allow you to forget about the psychological discomfort that those who wore classic braces had to face. Next, we will tell you in detail about their advantages and disadvantages, about how the installation of lingual braces takes place.

Lingual braces: the main advantages

Lingual, or, as they are also called, back, internal braces, have a lot of undeniable advantages. As for the shortcomings, there are several of them. The first is cost, but considering the level of comfort, effectiveness of orthodontic treatment and aesthetics, it can be omitted. Since braces are placed on the inside of the teeth, diction may be impaired. It is insignificant, but due to the incorrect pronunciation of the person, the person is nervous, therefore, some patients develop logoneurosis. Another drawback is the complexity of the installation, which is associated with the anatomical features of the dentition. It is especially difficult to place lingual braces on the upper jaw.

Advantages of lingual braces:

  • Visual control of the alignment process is greatly simplified. Internal placement of the structure provides a better view of the teeth, so the doctor and the patient can assess the progress of treatment more accurately.
  • Treatment continues in all situations. Very often after the installation of classic braces, patients asked us to remove them “for a while.” Of course, the orthodontic treatment ended there, and to continue it required the installation of a new system. The lingual bracket system eliminates such situations – you lead a normal life, without limiting yourself to practically anything, and your teeth become smoother.
  • Comfortable wearing. According to our statistics, braces on the inner side of the teeth are much less likely to cause inflammation in the gums, which means that discomfort when wearing them is practically excluded.

Indications and contraindications for the installation of lingual braces

Internal braces are recommended for wearing in the event that it is necessary to correct the bite, abnormal position of the teeth. Braces are indicated for adults and children who have all permanent teeth (11-13 years old).

Contraindications for wearing braces are:

  • 1
    inflammatory processes in the gums (gingivitis, periodontitis, etc.);
  • 2
    allergic reactions to the components of braces;
  • 3
    narrow jaw;
  • 4
    twisted teeth;
  • 5
    bruxism.

How the lingual braces are installed

Before installing the braces, the orthodontist conducts an examination, makes a panoramic image of the teeth, an X-ray, on the basis of which a three-dimensional modeling of the future structure is performed. In the laboratory of the clinic, designed braces are made taking into account all the anatomical features of the patient’s dentition. If necessary, the oral cavity is prepared for the installation of a bracket system: elimination of inflammatory processes in soft tissues, caries, professional teeth cleaning.

After making the braces, the doctor proceeds to their installation, which is carried out according to the following scheme:

  • tooth surface polishing, enamel restoration;
  • fixing special pads on the inside of the teeth;
  • fixing braces on pads using special glue;
  • connection of braces with an orthodontic arch, which is threaded into each element and fixed with ligatures or clips.

Further, the doctor regularly replaces the arches with more rigid ones, adjusting the pressure on the teeth. Invisible dental braces are used for 6-24 months – the period of wearing them depends on the degree of malocclusion, curvature of the teeth, as well as on the individual characteristics of the dentition.

Hygiene during braces treatment

If you are placing braces on the back of your teeth, be prepared for more thorough care. Access to them is difficult, it is quite difficult to visually assess their condition, therefore, in this case, you just need to regularly perform hygiene procedures using special means.

Our recommendations for oral care with braces:

  • 1
    you need to brush your teeth after each meal;
  • 2
    when carrying out hygiene procedures, you first need to make a circular brush, and then sweeping movements;
  • 3
    you need to brush your teeth without sudden movements so that the locks do not come off;
  • 4
    you need to use not only a regular toothbrush, but also a monobunched one, which will allow you to more effectively clean hard-to-reach places, areas near the braces;
  • 5
    If after a meal it is not possible to brush your teeth, be sure to rinse your mouth with water or mouthwash.
