The importance given to facial aesthetics and, specifically, to the smile, has grown enormously in recent years, with studies relating professional and work success to a beautiful and harmonious smile and even talking about happiness or greater opportunities for sentimental success for a person with white and symmetrical teeth.
This is why modern orthodontics is placing more and more emphasis on the treatment with lingual appliances (behind the teeth, so that the brackets are not visible), in an attempt to make it easier for all types of patients to align their teeth as discreetly as possible.
Before starting such a treatment, many people are patients in the Region of Murcia and from all over the world ask different questions, sometimes associated with 'urban legends', such as:
- Will I be able to speak?
- will it do much damage to the tongue?
- is it more uncomfortable than vestibular orthodontics for eating?
The answer to these questions is clear: NO. It is a treatment similar to conventional orthodontics, but much more aesthetic and completely invisible. And, proof of this, are the testimonies of satisfied patients.
This is something that numerous scientific studies have been assessed, with the result that there is no significant difference between conventional and lingual orthodontic wearers. in aspects such as chewingthe daily hygieneor the satisfaction with treatment.
Thus, we see that it is simply a new area of application of the brackets, which affect the tongue more than vestibular brackets, which are closer to the inside of the cheeks.which, in the hands of a experienced orthodontist is not a drawback for excellent treatment results.
