Are Lingual Braces Suitable For Me?
Lingual Braces aren't suitable to all patients. For example, if you have a deep overbite we don't recommend Lingual Braces. In this example the overbite may bear too much pressure on the brackets, which means they fall off easily. A thorough examination from our dentists will determine if Lingual Braces are appropriate for your orthodontic case.
