A well-conducted orthodontic treatment must promote oral health and the individual’s general and psychological health.
Before starting any orthodontic or dental treatment, the specialist visit must produce a precise diagnosis and an accurate treatment plan.
It is important to note that the success of any dental therapy, especially orthodontic therapy, is strongly influenced by the collaboration of the patient.
The patient must respect the scheduled appointments, the timing of each step of the therapy, as well as the correct home and professional hygiene.
This technique, in which orthodontic attachments are “invisible” because they are fixed on the tooth’s inner (lingual) side instead of the outer side, is instrumental in treating adult patients with a demanding social and working life.
Lingual orthodontics is to be considered the only truly invisible, highly reliable, and effective orthodontic therapy for the resolution of malocclusions and aesthetic problems.
The duration of lingual orthodontic therapy varies from a few months to 2-3 years and is related to the severity of the initial clinical situation.
As with all types of therapy, the only way to know if lingual orthodontics is indicated in the specific case is to request a specialist visit with an orthodontist specializing in lingual orthodontics.
