Our hidden fixed braces are most popular with patients who do not want their braces to show at all. They are fixed to the teeth on the “inside”, ie the tongue side of the teeth and are called “lingual braces”. They are as effective as the traditional braces although treatment may take slightly longer to complete with them. Dr Crotty has many years’ experience in lingual braces. He uses many types and sometimes patients have a particular preference. He feels that SureSmile qt is a superior system allowing a more accurate combination of hidden braces on the upper teeth and standard braces on the lower teeth.
