Lingual Braces in Oak Ridge, NC

Braces are a must to correct crooked teeth and prevent a number of future problems; however, many adults forego getting braces because they're planted on the front of the teeth—a noticeable eyesore for many. Now, there is an invisible way to correct bite problems and straighten teeth. That's where Olmstead Orthodontics can help you. Our office is proud to offer lingual braces in Oak Ridge, NC.

Unlike clear braces, which are placed on the front of your teeth, lingual braces are placed behind your teeth, making them almost invisible. This is a more discreet way to straighten teeth and create a beautiful, healthy smile.

Learn about Lingual Braces

You've put off getting braces for years, fearing you would be teased in school. Now, you're an adult and you still need braces. Like many adults, you don't want to be stuck sporting metal braces for two or more years. With lingual braces, there is no need to worry.

Lingual braces use the brackets and wires associated with traditional teeth braces; however, both are placed behind your teeth, on the lingual side. Though hidden from sight, the treatment is just as effective in straightening teeth. In addition to being nearly invisible, there are a multitude of other benefits associated with lingual braces:

» Customized for Every Patient
» More Comfortable than Traditional Metal Braces
» Perfect for Teens & Adults Who Need to Straighten Their Teeth, but Don't Want to Sacrifice Aesthetics
» Uses Advanced Orthodontic Technology, Which Results in Shorter Overall Treatment Time & Fewer Office Visits

Make an Appointment with Our Lingual Braces Dentist

When you are ready to invest in your smile, visit our lingual braces dentist to determine if you are a candidate for this orthodontic innovation. If you are, we will begin the procedure, which can take up to six weeks to complete.

The procedure begins when we take an impression of your teeth. This is sent to a dental lab to create the customized brackets. Once the brackets are sent to our office, our lingual braces dentist uses a specialty cement-like material to bond the brackets to the back of your teeth. When the brackets are in place, they apply a continuous, yet gentle pressure to the teeth, shifting them slowly to the correct position. While the overall treatment time depends on the severity of the problem, it most commonly is complete in 18 to 36 months.
