- Lower risk of decay – interior teeth surface are more resistant to decalcification and decay than labial surface;
- More comfortable use because of low profile and small in-out dimension;
- Designed and manufactured for a specific patient;
- Possibility of creating a model with final results before the appliance is placedSome cases show that treatment time is shorter – force on tooth is close to the resistance centre which causes faster teeth movements;
- Less pain during treatment – thin archwires used with lingual brackets work with weal biological forces, they do not overload neuromuscular ligament system;
- Unlike with traditional brackets, no bands or ligatures are used;
- More precise because of customised design;
Lingual brackets are not new. Their use is based on over 35 years of work, development and modernization – both in shape and patient’s comfort.
In this technology brackets are bonded from interior or lingual side of a tooth and it is completely invisible even when you smile broadly! Lingual brackets differ from labial ones with the surface of bonding, lack of bands, invisibility of the appliance itself and additional elements as well. The brackets themselves are only forces transporters from actively working wire to a tooth. In the case of lingual technique, different brackets and wires than in traditional technology are used. An additional advantage is the possibility of seeing the final effect on a model before the treatment starts. In case of lingual brackets, malocclusion treatment is much shorter, even easier than traditional technology. The treatment time is similar to the time with traditional system and the mechanics of lingual brackets is the same as traditional.
Nowadays lingual brackets can treat all the malocclusions.
The only condition is the absence of active periodontal disease, the presence of permanent teeth and enough amount of tooth crown for bracket bonding. It is possible to treat patients with retained teeth and surgical cases. More difficult cases need proper technologies to be used.
System used in our clinic
Nowadays it is possible to use variety of systems. There are some companies in the world producing lingual brackets. They differ in shape, size and capabilities. Simple appliances controlling teeth movements only in two planes are able to treat not complicated malocclusions such as crowding and spacing. Most appliances are based on ready elements manufactured by companies and, with the help of a technician, set them properly on a model. At the end of 2004 there was the introduction of a new product on a market: prefabricated brackets were replaced with individually designed INCOGNITO brackets made by TOP-SERVICE LINGUALTECHNIK company from Germany. At the beginning of 2005, dr Katarzyna Łoza-Sołtyk went there on a training what nowadays results in even the most difficult cases treatment. The treatment with INCOGNITO system is based on digitally customized brackets and wires which are digitally manufactured based on set-up (treatment result simulation).
