Lingual orthodontic appliances now offer an opportunity of improving the smile for people who wish to have this carried out without having visible fixed orthodontic appliances.

These appliances are almost invisible; they attach to the inner surface of the teeth. They now can be used to produce high quality outcomes in cases where complex tooth movements are necessary. They currently have an advantage over Invisalign and clear aligners for complicated tooth movements. It is possible to provide lingual braces for all age groups, although these appliances are not for everybody.

There are several types of lingual appliances which can be used. Dr. Conal Kavanagh & Dr. Crean are certified users of Incognito appliances. This is a German designed and manufactured appliance and as with most German engineering products the precision and engineering involved in these appliances are second to none. Each individual bracket and wire that moves each tooth is customised and is essentially a bespoke appliance so that no two appliances are the same.

Lingual appliances were first used in this practice in the early 1970’s by Maurice Crean and Des Kavanagh but the appliances that are now available are much more comfortable.
