Lingual Orthodontics - the ultimate esthetic appliance

In today's world the patients demand not only an excellent esthetic result but often also an esthetic appliance. This demand has led to the development of plastic brackets, ceramic brackets, and -of course- lingual brackets. In the last five years interest in the lingual treatment technique has increased significantly, especially in Japan, Korea, France, Italy, and most recently Germany. New materials and new methods have furthered interest in the technique even more. The presentation will give an overview of today's lingual appliance and what is necessary to use it. Among the topics covered are lingual set-up methods, bracket placement, bonding considerations, arch form, specific details in treatment.
