„...that you won’t see in the dark.“
Unlike minor misalignments that can be treated with removable braces, fixed appliances have to be devised for more complex and longer lasting orthodontic treatments. The most aesthetically convincing solution is lingual orthodontics.
Lingual orthodontics is based on the same principles as the conventional fixed braces. However, in contrast to these, a special protective technique is used to glue the brackets to the inside of the teeth. The appliance is invisible when the mouth is opened normally. This technique may only be applied by specially qualified orthodontists.
