Yes, lingual braces are just as effective as traditional braces in treating a wide range of orthodontic issues. They work using the same principle of applying continuous pressure to move teeth into the desired position gradually. The key difference lies in their placement; lingual braces are attached to the backside of the teeth, making them invisible from the front. While the treatment duration can be similar to that of traditional braces, the invisibility factor makes lingual braces a preferred option for those concerned about aesthetics.

How Lingual Braces Work
