Lingual Braces Behind Your Teeth
At GoaLine Orthodontics in Frisco TX, we offer patients of all ages the latest in orthodontic treatments and technology. Dr. Parks is constantly striving to improve our systems and stay up-to-date. Consequently, Team GoaLine is thrilled to offer BRIUS lingual braces as a game-changing alternative to traditional braces or clear aligners. Orthodontics is constantly evolving, and BRIUS is cutting-edge.
Traditional braces have a reputation for being very noticeable, bulky and uncomfortable. Clear aligners such as Invisalign or Spark, require additional responsibilities that many patients aren’t thrilled about. Luckily, BRIUS lingual braces can be a successful alternative to these more common treatments! BRIUS brackets are placed behind the teeth, so they’re invisible to anyone who sees your smile.
This method moves each tooth individually and can even result in shorter treatment times than braces or Invisalign.
The BRIUS Process
The first step is a free initial consultation at our office in Frisco, where Dr. Parks will take x-rays and examine your teeth and bite to determine what issues are present and whether or not you would benefit from orthodontic treatment. She will listen to your concerns and answer any questions you may have about your treatment options. After the consultation, we will take photos and use our 3D scanner to take digital impressions of your teeth. From there, Dr. Parks will create a customized treatment plan to achieve your smile GOALS.
Once we have these records and decide on your treatment plan, we will send them to our lab where BRIUS lingual brackets will be customized just for you. At your next appointment, your brackets will be installed behind your teeth and the movement will begin! Since there are no adjustments with BRIUS, your next series of appointments will consist of monitoring to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned.
There are pros and cons to every orthodontic appliance, but BRIUS is a game-changing treatment that comes with a variety of benefits, including:
● Completely invisible from the outside – Brackets are placed behind the teeth.
● Shorter treatment times – This method moves all of the teeth independently, but simultaneously, thus resulting in faster, more efficient treatment for many patients.
● Fewer office visits – Since most cases only require one BRIUS appliance during treatment, there are no regular adjustments necessary.
● More convenient – You never have to remember to remove or replace them.
● More comfortable – BRIUS places less force on the teeth and reduces overall pain from movement.
● Easier to clean – Because the wires don’t extend between the teeth, it is easier to floss with BRIUS than with traditional braces
As with any orthodontic treatment, you may experience some soreness in the first few days after having your BRIUS appliance placed. The soreness will be primarily on the tongue when speaking and eating. Fortunately, this will subside within a week or 2, and you will be back to normal before you know it!
Is BRIUS Right For You?
The benefits of BRIUS lingual braces are a major bonus for patients who are concerned about their orthodontic appliances being visible from the outside. It is also an ideal option if you are not comfortable with the idea of keeping up with a removable appliance like Invisalign or Spark. Dr. Parks can use this game-changing appliance to treat most orthodontic conditions, ranging from mild to severe, but BRIUS may not be the best option for everyone. At your first visit, Dr. Parks will be able to discuss your concerns and goals to determine whether BRIUS is a good fit for you.
Having braces on the back of your teeth can definitely take some adjustment in the beginning. You will most likely notice a difference when eating and talking. For example, you might have a slight lisp due to the contact the tongue will make with your teeth. Luckily, this side effect disappears relatively quickly.
