LingualBraces

Great results, discreetly

Lingual Orthodontic Braces are placed behind your teeth, so no one will even know you are wearing braces – unless you want them to!

Elleven Dental

These unique braces are created using state-of-the-art technology and are the only 100% customised, invisible, fixed braces system on the market today.

There is particular demand from adults who do a lot of public speaking in their role, actors and actresses and anyone who does not want people to notice their orthodontic treatment.

Lingual braces give you a beautiful smile, even while you’re wearing them. elleven Dental Wellness is the first orthodontic practice in London to offer SureSmile combined with Lingual braces; revolutionary behind-the-teeth braces with accurate SureSmile technology which reduces treatment time by 6-9 months

Additional specialist training is required for orthodontists to be able to work with lingual braces. Anthony Lam, Partner at elleven Dental Wellness, is a leading orthodontist in the UK treating over 100 cases a year and lecturing about the orthodontic techniques involved.

Lingual braces are suitable for adults and children who want to correct the position of their teeth, but don’t want their braces to be visible.

Frequently Asked Questions

No, treatment time is usually dictated by the complexity of the teeth. Fixed braces are faster and more accurate than removable braces

Most people can but there are limits when tooth height is low (eg children) or if oral hygiene is poor. Age does not limit the use of lingual braces but it is generally not advisable for children.

Tooth movement can initially be uncomfortable. Please use painkillers that you would usually use for a headache (please read the instructions). Wax can be placed over the appliance to keep it smooth to the tongue.

Most people notice a change in their speech, particularly over the first few weeks. This generally improves after an initial period of adaptation.

As with any brace you will need to spend more time cleaning and one does need to maintain a good standard of oral hygiene throughout the treatment.

Brush your teeth 3 times a day for at least 3 minutes using a fluoride toothpaste.

Brushing with braces takes a bit longer so take your time and use the interdental brushes provided to help cleaning in between the wires. Use a daily alcohol free fluoride mouthwash at least 20 min after brushing.

Make sure your gums are nice and healthy by brushing them at the same time as brushing your teeth.

Yes! You can eat normally. Simply cut all your meals in small pieces using knife and fork and bite with your back teeth to avoid breakages of the braces.

Avoid sugary snacks/drinks between meals and at bedtime.
Avoid sticky, chewy or hard sweets, mints and sugared chewing gum. Avoid fizzy drinks (including diet drinks) and large amounts of fruit juice.
Avoid hard or chewy foods – such as apples, carrots and crusty bread – can damage your brace. Avoid them or cut them up first!

Please do not panic but ring the Practice as soon as possible so we can arrange to fix your braces. In the mean time you can use wax to keep the discomfort to minimum. Please note: Continued breakages leads to delay treatment

Elastics may need to be worn on a full or part time basis at some point during the treatment. The aim of the elastics is to aid in the bite correction. Failure to cooperate will lead to delayed treatment and undesired finished results

You will need regular appointments (usually every 4- 8 weeks) during treatment for the brace to be adjusted.

Yes. It is important you still have checkups and hygiene (every 3-6 months) with your regular dentist throughout the treatment. Your orthodontist will not be checking your teeth for decay or gum disease.
