STb Lingual braces can give you beautifully straight teeth in just 6 Weeks to 6 Months after starting treatment. Our clinic is now able to offer our patients Lingual braces treatments which utilise the latest in lingual bracket technology – STb. The STb Light Lingual System provides patients with results which are straight-forward and effective and which take less time than conventional braces. They are also proven to be more comfortable for the patient than standard metal brackets.
What are STb Lingual Braces?
STb Lingual braces are fixed braces which use brackets and wires to correct orthodontic problems ranging from minor to severe. The brackets and wires offer a more intensive treatment for patients whose orthodontic issues are too severe to be corrected by the use of plastic aligners. But, the brackets are fitted to the backs of the teeth so that they are completely invisible. This is a great brace for patients in need of more dramatic orthodontic treatment, but who do not want the unsightly appearance of a mouth full of metal.
Why choose STb Lingual Braces?
STb brackets hardly impede speech at all when compared with normal braces. These brackets protrude just 1.5mm from the surface of the tooth, so they don’t get in the way when eating or speaking. Studies have shown that although some patients experience difficulty with speech in the first few days after the braces are fitted, this is overcome in just a couple of days, so your normal lifestyle can remain unaffected by your orthodontic treatment.
Dentists who have had a lot of experience with removable aligners will know that the promised effects of the treatment programmes are not obtained some of the time. This is usually a result of shortfallings or weaknesses in the material that the aligner is made from, or the patient forgetting to wear the aligner at all times.
This can be incredibly annoying for both dentist and patient as the results are not delivered at the end of the treatment, and further procedures are required to achieve that perfect smile. This is why STb Lingual braces are often preferred – the patient cannot forget to wear them and the material is hard and durable so will do its job perfectly.
