Hidden gems

In every walk of life there are hidden gems: a great music store that no one else has heard of, a funky new bar that’s tucked away down a side street, an excellent plumber who only takes bookings by word of mouth.

Braces in Milton Keynes

The world of dentistry is no different. There is one treatment that is literally a hidden gem and that’s lingual braces. Here at Northlight Dental, we have been fitting patients with lingual braces for years and had many great results in that time.

Why are lingual braces in Milton Keynes a hidden gem? Well, it’s not because no one knows about them; these teeth straightening devices are a very popular option. It’s because they are fixed to the back of the teeth and so are hidden from view. No one looking at you would have any idea that you are wearing braces in Milton Keynes.

Lingual braces really are a win-win. The big advantage of fixed, metal braces is the treatment can be controlled and adjusted as it progresses. This is incredibly useful and means complex misalignments can be treated through the skill and care of the dentist.

However, the big drawback is that they blaze a trail across the front of your teeth for up to 2 years. Not great for a self-conscious teen or an adult with a high-profile job or social life. Lingual braces in Milton Keynes are fixed, metal braces and so offer the dentist the same level of control over the treatment as their front-facing counterparts, but without being so conspicuous.

And, because the back profile of the teeth is different for everyone (unlike the front which is pretty much the same for all of us), lingual braces in Milton Keynes are custom-made to fit you, meaning you get a comfortable and effective treatment.

Lingual braces in Milton Keynes are also of great benefit for those who need to keep the front of their mouth clear, such as contact sports players and brass and woodwind musicians.
