Lingual Retainers for a Beautiful Smile

At Les Belles NYC, we understand the importance of maintaining a straight and beautiful smile after orthodontic treatment. That’s why we proudly offer lingual retainers as an excellent option to keep your teeth in their ideal position without compromising aesthetics. Our experienced dentists are dedicated to providing high-quality care and helping you achieve a smile you’ll be proud to show off.

What are Lingual Retainers?

Lingual retainers are discreet, custom-made wires that are bonded to the back surfaces of your teeth. They offer valued advantages over traditional fixed or removable retainers that were used in the past. Unlike traditional retainers, which are removable and can be easily misplaced, lingual retainers are fixed in place, ensuring continuous retention and preventing your teeth from shifting back to their original positions.

The Benefits of Lingual Retainers

At Les Belles NYC, we recognize the following advantages of choosing lingual retainers after orthodontic treatment:

Invisible Appearance
Lingual retainers are virtually invisible since they are attached to the back of your teeth. This feature makes them an ideal choice for individuals who want to maintain their smile’s aesthetics while keeping their teeth aligned.
Enhanced Comfort
With lingual retainers, you can comfortably go about your daily routine without any interference. Unlike removable retainers that can cause discomfort or speech difficulties, lingual retainers are discreet and won’t affect your ability to eat, speak, or smile confidently.
Long-Term Effectiveness
Lingual retainers provide continuous support to your teeth, helping them maintain their new alignment over the long term. By keeping your teeth in place, lingual retainers reduce the risk of relapse and the need for additional orthodontic treatment in the future.

Why Replace Your Fixed Wired Retainer with a Lingual Retainer?

In the past, fixed metal retainers were the go-to solution for holding teeth in position after braces. However, more than a decade later, patients are suffering the serious drawbacks of these oral appliances. Traditional fixed wired retainers often have a flawed design and poor installation method. They are typically bonded with excessive glue, which makes them nearly impossible to clean and susceptible to excessive buildup of plaque, making patients at risk for cavities, gum disease, and even bone loss.

With modern lingual retainers, patients have a solution to keep their straight and beautiful smile without the oral health risks of a traditional wired retainer. By upgrading to a new bonded lingual retainer, you can enjoy the following benefits:

  • Improved design makes it easier to keep clean and prevent dental problems
  • Resin composite rather than defunct glue is a leaner, stronger, more biocompatible bonding material
  • Reduced inflammation and buildup
  • Stronger, more durable materials to withstand chewing forces
