Lingual plate is a removable orthodontic appliance that many of you have seen in your childhood. This classic option shows very good results, but only if the patient is compliant.
The lingual plate is made of a colored plastic part placed on the tongue side and wire elements in the front part of the teeth. The main advantage of this option is the possibility to start treatment early to stimulate the correct growth of the jaws. Thereby when the permanent teeth erupt on the place of baby teeth, they will have enough space to fit in well. The appliances are individually made and in a color that appeals to small patients.
