The Basics of Invisible Braces

Baker Orthodontics

If clear braces are still too obvious, there are options for invisible braces that you may be interested in considering. Sometimes people may need to look essentially the same for whatever reason, which may be work-related. Some possible examples are news reporters, public speakers, performers, or models.

In this article, I’d like to explore two of your options for invisible braces.

Braces Behind Your Teeth

Yes, you can get braces that are attached to the tongue side of your teeth. This essentially makes it look like you don’t have braces at all when you smile, which can be beneficial for a number of people. Though lingual braces are less common than other types of braces, they can be a good option for some people.

Because the hardware is attached to the tongue side of your teeth, it can present several situations that are unique to this kind of braces.

The Good:

  • Each bracket is custom-made for your teeth, insuring a perfect fit.
  • No one can tell you have braces when you smile.
  • Lingual braces have become much easier to care for over the years.

The Potential Bad:

  • Lingual braces may be difficult to get used to.
  • In some cases, lingual braces may cause temporary speech issues.
  • They may be more challenging to clean.
  • They aren’t recommended for extreme cases.
  • Adjustments may be more challenging for the orthodontist because of limited accessibility.
  • Not all orthodontists offer lingual braces.
  • Initially, they may cause your tongue to feel sore.
  • Lingual braces tend to be more expensive.

Your orthodontist will be able to answer any further questions you may have about lingual braces at your initial consultation. Depending on your unique orthodontic needs, you and your orthodontist will come to the best possible decision regarding your treatment.

Invisible Braces

Invisalign® is a system of straightening your teeth that involves a series of clear plastic trays, each of which represents one step at a time of aligning your teeth. This is a popular option for people who don’t want to look like they have braces at all, and most people who have undergone treatment with this system had a positive experience.

The Good:

  • Removable trays.
  • You can continue eating and drinking whatever you want.
  • Less chance of decalcification.
  • No gum irritation.
  • Invisible trays so you don’t look like you have braces.

The Potential Bad:

  • You must take out your trays when eating or drinking anything except water.
  • Self-discipline is a must.
  • You must brush your teeth after every
    single meal, or if you drink something other than water.
  • Some patients have reported difficulty in taking out their trays to eat or drink.
  • The trays have to be cleaned separately.

Even though some of the potential drawbacks can seem overwhelming, most patients find that Invisalign® is a great option for them and have a wonderful experience with it. If you think Invisalign® could be the right option for you, ask your orthodontist for more information.
