Lingual Treatment Applications in Adult Orthodontics
 
Nowadays more adults are demanding for orthodontic treatment instead of prosthetic restorations for having a nice smile. Sometimes orthodontic treatment is mandatory for a good restoration in these patients. They also demand for invisible techniques. So aligners and lingual brackets became more popular in the last decade although the cost is comparatively higher than the buccal technique. Indication for Aligners are comparatively limited and need cooperation while these are not the issues in Lingual technique. Lingual brackets are getting smaller in size and being more specific through technological advances. It is possible to bond them directly or indirectly. Standart brackets are available in the market and can be bonded directly for simple cases while there are alternatives such as customized (casted) types for more complicated cases. During this presentation these applications will be presented together with case samples.
