Lingual braces

Lingual braces are one of the many types of the fixed orthodontic treatment appliances available to patients needing orthodontics. They involve attaching the orthodontic brackets on the inner (lingual vs. buccal) sides of the teeth. The main advantage of lingual braces is their near invisibility[1] compared to the standard braces, which are attached on the buccal (cheek) sides of the tooth.[2] Lingual braces were invented by Craven Kurz in 1976.[3]
