Lingual Braces are ideal for those who want the effects of braces, but are apprehensive about showing a mouth full of orthodontic work to the world. Lingual braces sit on the back of your teeth making them completely invisible from the front. Lingual braces are an ideal option for adult orthodontic patients. Unlike standard brackets, which are mass-produced, lingual braces require a custom-made bracket for each tooth. They can be worn on the top and bottom teeth. Because the bottom teeth are generally less visible, a popular combination is to have lingual braces on the top teeth and clear (ceramic or sapphire) braces on the bottom.
