Dental Square offers orthodontic treatment in Buenos Aires, ArgentinaBuilding a New Smile Without Telling

With Lingual Orthodontics you can straighten your teeth with braces that are not visible.

The reason for this is because they are placed on the inner surface of your teeth, inside the mouth where they cannot be seen (unlike conventional braces that are placed on the outer surface of your teeth).

It is never too late to look and feel your best! Problems like crooked teeth, spaces between the teeth or teeth that stick out can be corrected.

Most adults seek orthodontic treatment for cosmetic reasons; however, many may seek treatment because of jaw dysfunction, excessive wear of individual teeth or problems with dental hygiene. Whatever your reasons, we will concentrate on straightening your teeth and achieving harmony of your teeth, jaws and face.

Can anyone have lingual orthodontic treatment?

Age does not limit the use of lingual braces. However, it may be more difficult to provide lingual braces for children since their teeth may not have fully erupted. If the teeth are very small it is more difficult to place the braces. If your teeth and gums are not healthy, braces are not suitable.

How long is the treatment?

The treatment time will vary depending on the complexity of the problem. Each treatment is based on a comprehensive and individually personalised treatment plan. The treatment can take anywhere between 6 to 24 months.

Does it Hurt?

Just like normal braces, lingual braces may be uncomfortable for the first 7-10 days. During this time:

* You may take pain killers to reduce the discomfort
* You may place wax over the brackets to reduce the irritation to the tongue
* We recommend that you maintain a soft diet

Will it affect my speech?

Most people do notice a temporary change in their speech. This generally improves after an initial period of adaptation. The new brackets we use minimise this problem.

Will I be able to clean my teeth?

You will need to spend more time to keep your teeth clean. It is important to maintain a good standard of oral hygiene. This will mean that you will need to see a hygienist to have your teeth cleaned professionally every 3-4 months during treatment.

Will it be stable after treatment is complete?

No orthodontist can guarantee the stability of orthodontic treatment without a retainer. We want your beautiful smile to last forever. At the end of treatment you will be provided with retainers to protect your investment in your teeth.
