Hidden braces or lingual braces are a discreet way to straighten teeth.

    What are hidden braces?

    Hidden braces or Lingual braces were first introduced in the 1970s. They are still the most discreet way to straighten teeth, and they just keep getting better.

    Lingual braces work like traditional fixed braces, using brackets and wires to align your teeth. But, unlike traditional braces, the brackets and wires are hidden away behind your teeth.

    Some lingual braces feature custom-made brackets and wires. These help your braces to fit the surfaces on the back of your teeth. They also provide your orthodontist with greater control for outstanding results

      What are the benefits of orthodontic treatment?

      Braces can bring life changing benefits:

      • The can improve the appearance of your smile
      • They can correct the way your teeth bite together and function
      • They can reduce the risk of damage to prominent teeth
      • They can make it easier to clean your teeth

        Will I be able to eat and drink as normal?

        To avoid any damage to your teeth or braces, you'll need to steer clear of the following during your treatment:

        • Sugary snacks and drinks between meals
        • Anything particularly sticky, hard or chewy
        • Fizzy drinks and large quantities of fruit juice

        Will I be able to play contact sports? 

        Absolutely, but you'll need to wear a mouth guard. We can custom-make you a mouthguard to wear over your braces. To find out more speak to one of the Station House Dental & Implant Clinic dentists.

        Will I be able to play a musical instrument?

        Braces can make it trickier to play wind or brass instruments. Most patients quickly adapt, but you should discuss this with your orthodontists. They might recommend a removable brace, which can be taken out for performances.
