How do lingual braces go on?
The first step to getting an amazing smile is scheduling a free lingual braces consultation. Dr. Knapp will review your personal diagnostic information and make sure lingual braces are right for you. Once approved, a 3D digital scan will be taken of your teeth to create your custom-made lingual braces.
In most cases, lingual braces will take longer to apply than other metal or ceramic types of braces. Dr. Knapp will need more time because getting behind your teeth is a tight-fitting area. The day you get your lingual braces on, our team will use cheek stretchers (think the game Speak Out™) to keep your lips and cheeks away from your teeth. Next we will use a special tooth shampoo and conditioner to get your teeth super clean. The total time it takes to get your braces on is less than 45 min!
