Just like any other orthodontic treatment procedure, lingual braces (braces attached at the back of your teeth) also have their disadvantages.
The only significant Disadvantage with Lingual Braces, compared to some other orthodontic treatments, is that they can be more uncomfortable for some people. Because the brace attaches to the back of the teeth, some patients require a longer period of adjustment during which time they can discover difficulties in cleaning their teeth, chewing, swallowing and talking.
Other areas where people experience difficulty are issues such as playing a musical instrument or a sport. Once again, if this is a concern then your dentist may be able to recommend a product or type of treatment that is more suitable to your lifestyle. For example, modern, low-profile Lingual Brackets are another step forward in reducing the effect to eating and speech and making braces much more comfortable to wear.
