Leading Lingual Orthodontist
In The Greater Philadelphia Area
Not all orthodontists offer lingual orthodontic options. Although it is an emerging treatment modality
in the field of orthodontics, additional training and technical expertise are required.
The term lingual refers to the tongue or palate side of the tooth. Lingual braces have been around for many years and have evolved into customizable very efficient orthodontic systems.
Lingual braces are placed behind the teeth rather than on the front or visible part of your smile. They are an excellent cosmetic option for those who would like to straighten their teeth without the braces showing.
There are some elements to consider with typical lingual orthodontic bracket treatment options:
- Cost: Lingual braces typically cost more than typical facial view braces as they are custom-made for your teeth by an outside lab
- Increased Treatment and Appointment Time
- Increased Tongue Irritation
- Increased Soft Tissue Irritation
- Speech-Related Problems
- Increased Food Traps and Difficulty in Brushing Teeth
- Bite-Related Changes During Alignment Process
Dr. Cassalia set out to minimize these concerns with the development of his Wirelign® procedure and ProWire® system. They both overcome
the concerns with conventional lingual bracket treatment but are a limited treatment option for the anterior teeth only. Those patients
seeking full arch and bite correction would need to consider full facial or lingual bracket systems.
