Dr. Neal Kravitz highlights the benefits of offering lingual orthodontics as a treatment option. With the increasing patient demand for aesthetics, he details why orthodontists should integrate lingual orthodontics into their office. The article also provides a case study involving hybrid biomechanics of an upper arch with the Incognito™ Appliance System and a lower arch with ceramic braces.
“With 3M’s Incognito™ Appliance System, the system I use in my practice, brackets and archwires are customized to the patient’s anatomy, meaning less magnification and more control. Control is certainly of the utmost importance for a good finish when you’re dealing with the biomechanics of lingual orthodontics. With advancements in lingual bracket technology, there are few complexities that can’t be treated.”
