Lingual orthodontics is our most advanced alternative for the orthodontic treatment of patients, athletes and VIPs who require an optimal and discreet treatment option.
With lingual braces, Dr. Stosich custom designs the brackets and wires to be placed on the inside, or lingual, of your teeth. You’ll receive the precision and accuracy of 3D guided robotics without the visible signs of orthodontic treatment.
A quad helix appliance is a customized, non-visible expansion appliance that exerts light and controlled force on the upper teeth. Dr. Stosich uses it to widen the upper jaw in the front and/or back of a patient’s mouth, and it can also be used to rotate the first molars, if needed. A quad helix may be recommended to correct a dental crossbite or to widen the upper arch to allow adequate space for crowded teeth to move to their ideal locations.
The quad helix will ensure that the upper dental arch more closely matches the lower arch, while ensuring there is enough room for all of a patient’s permanent teeth. The device is not removable, and does not require any adjustment by the patient. It fits behind the teeth, and works slowly and gently to adjust the upper jaw. It may take a few days for a patient to get used to wearing the appliance, but in no time, the patient will forget about it while the quad helix accomplishes its goal. Dr. Stosich designs each quad helix uniquely for each patient, allowing for the highest level of comfort and efficiency.
Invisible orthodontic lingual braces are placed behind your teeth, so no one will even know you are wearing braces. Lingual orthodontics can give you a beautiful smile, even while you’re wearing them, with virtually no impact on speech or irritation to your tongue.
