2018 Annual Session Conference

Lingual Orthodontics: An Essential Tool for the Orthodontic Specialist

May 6, 2018 12:15pm ‐ May 6, 2018 1:00pm


There are some compelling reasons why all orthodontic specialists should have some basic capability to employ lingual fixed appliances. In this lecture we will describe the false choice that is commonly presented to patients, between therapy with buccal fixed appliances or no treatment at all. We also demonstrate the benefits of employing lingual appliances for both the patient and the practitioner.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify at least two logistical or biomechanical advantages of lingual appliances.
  • Recognize the indications for lingual orthodontic treatment.
  • Discuss strengths and weakness of different lingual appliance systems.
