Does Braces Behind the teeth really excist?
Lingual Braces

Lingual braces are placed behind your teeth, and are therefore virtually invisible to other people. Usually, lingual brackets are made of metal.

Orthodontists need special training to be able to treat patients with lingual braces. Therefore, not every orthodontist provides them. To find an orthodontist who provides lingual braces, ask your dentist or search Google for the phrase lingual braces along with the name of your state, country, or location.

The obvious benefit of this type of treatment is that no one will know that you are wearing lingual braces unless they look inside your mouth! For more information about lingual braces, visit


Other people can't see the brackets unless they look inside your mouth.


They tend to hurt your tongue and make it difficult to speak at first.

They tend to be more expensive than traditional metal, because treatment is specialized.

Treatment can take a few months longer than traditional braces.

Your orthodontist must be specially trained in lingual treatment. Not every orthodontist does lingual treatment.

If you have severe problems, or need certain types of appliances, lingual treatment may not be applicable.
Reply:No its not true you could have clear braces though

they're rare though

and they'll probably cost you $$$

i'd say probably not

maybe just for famous people
Reply:yup. miley cyrus have them.

they are less common, though.
Reply:maybe although it would be kinda rare
Reply:Yes they do, they are very popular. Check with your dentist.
Reply:*Supposedly* certain famous people have had them behind, not sure how true it is, though I can't imagine how horrible that would be to deal with. Regular braces are bad enough on the mouth and tongue for a while.
Reply:An orthodontist will fix your teeth with regular braces and then when they're straight she'll put a permanent metal brace behind your bottom 4 teeth. I know cause I've had that brace for 8 years now and my teeth look the same as when I just got my braces off.
Reply:yeah Miley Cyrus uses that
