Fixed Lingual Retainers

 

Orthodontic Fixed Lingual Bonded Retainers Melbourne: The Pros, Cons, and Costs.


Orthodontic Fixed lingual bonded retainers are a popular choice for patients who want to maintain their new smile. Orthodontic lingual bonded retainers are a type of retainer that is used to keep teeth in place after finishing orthodontic treatment. A thin titanium alloy wire is attached to the back of the teeth using dental bonding material. This type of retainer has some advantages and disadvantages, which we will discuss in this article.

One of the stand-out advantages of lingual bonded retainers is that they are very effective at keeping teeth in place. The top or bottom 6 teeth are tied together with titanium alloy wire stopping any movement of the teeth. They are also less visible than other types of retainers, such as clear Essix plastic retainers or metal wire Hawley retainers. This can be a big advantage for people who want to keep their orthodontic treatment confidential. Another advantage is that as they are permanently fixed behind the teeth, the patient doesn't require to take them off.

However, there are also some disadvantages to lingual bonded retainers. One of the cons is that they can be difficult to clean and care for. It is important to brush and floss carefully around the bonding material, so that plaque does not build up and cause decay. Another disadvantage is that lingual bonded retainers are a little bit more expensive than clear Essix retainers.
