Case Study: Lingual Braces
Lingual braces are effective in treating a range of orthodontic problems, including crooked teeth, overbite, underbite, and overcrowding. However, they may not be recommended for severe cases or individuals with complex orthodontic issues.

Lingual braces are a type of orthodontic braces that are attached to the back of the teeth, facing the tongue, instead of being placed on the front surface of the teeth like traditional braces. They are custom-made to fit each individual’s teeth and are typically crafted from gold or stainless steel alloy. Since the brackets and wires are situated behind the teeth, lingual braces are a discreet option for people who want to straighten their teeth without visible braces.
