Lingual (Behind-the-Teeth) Braces

We provide lingual braces in Issaquah, as a truly invisible form of braces. If you’re looking for an orthodontic treatment that won’t be seen when you smile but is just as effective as traditional braces, lingual braces may be the perfect match.

Lingual Braces Vs. Traditional Braces

The main difference between lingual braces and traditional braces is the placement. While traditional braces are attached to the front surfaces of the teeth and are visible when you smile, lingual braces are bonded to the inner tongue-side surfaces of the teeth.

With lingual, hidden braces, nobody will know that you’re undergoing orthodontic treatment—except you and us, of course.

When comparing lingual braces Vs traditional braces, there are pros and cons to both types of braces. 

While lingual braces are far more discreet than traditional braces, lingual braces require some additional attention in your oral hygiene routine. It’s important that you’re diligent in cleaning the non-visible surfaces of your teeth thoroughly, as well as in between the teeth.

On the other hand, with lingual braces, you won’t run the risk of white spots or discoloration left on the visible surfaces of your teeth. You don’t have to worry about red wine staining your teeth or coffee causing noticeable discoloration. You can whiten your teeth during treatment with lingual braces too! Life with braces looks different than life without them, but we’re here to help you navigate no matter what type of braces you choose.
