Invisible braces

At Scunthorpe Orthodontics, we offer invisible braces to our patients. These are also known as lingual braces. How can they be invisible you’re wondering? It’s because lingual braces are fitted to the back surface of your teeth, next to your tongue (lingual means tongue side).

What are lingual braces?

Lingual braces use the same parts and method as traditional metal braces and clear ceramic braces. The small brackets are bonded to the back surface of your teeth and a thin metal archwire connects them. The real difference is they will take a little longer to get used to than other types of braces. Because lingual braces are so close to your tongue they can affect your speech, but this will only last for a week or so. We just recommend you talk a lot during this time, because the more you speak the faster your mouth will get used to having them. 

How well do lingual braces work?

If you’re wondering how effective lingual braces are compared to traditional braces and clear ceramic braces, the answer is they’re extremely effective. Plus you have the added bonus of them being virtually invisible.

Keith Jackson left his native Northern Ireland in 1980 to commence his study of Dentistry at Newcastle University, completing his degree in 1985, taking with him as well very happy memories of his time in the North East.

He decided to continue his dental education, developing more advanced skills - initially at The Charles Clifford Dental Hospital, followed by Doncaster Royal Infirmary and finally The Birmingham Dental Hospital. After this four-year period of post-graduate study, he became a Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow. Keith began his practice career as an associate at The Riversdale Dental Practice in Gainsborough and had the opportunity two years later to buy the practice from the existing owner – who was heading back to the Emerald isle.

Keeping your teeth clean

We all know how important brushing our teeth is, but as life gets busy this is a habit that can fall by the wayside. It’s extra important to remember to clean your teeth at least twice a day if you’re wearing braces and even when wearing lingual braces this isn’t hard to do. Once you’ve been fitted with lingual braces we’ll show you the best techniques to keep your teeth and your braces in tip top shape.
