Video: Lingual Braces
Lingual Braces on bottom only? I want lingual braces and I would eventually like to get them.
I was wondering if dentists are able to put braces on a row of teeth rather than both (top teeth and lower teeth)?
For instance, if someone has straight top teeth but their bottom teeth are crooked, would you be able to just put braces on the bottom teeth and leave the top alone? ...Visitor from MD
Usually braces on one arch only is a bad idea.
Tooth movement on one arch affects the teeth on the other arch and can move them. The only instance braces might be a detriment is for a fashion model or for a part in a movie.
