At The London Lingual Orthodontic Clinic, we’re proud to have been the first practice in the UK dedicated to lingual braces.
Providing lingual braces since 2002, our founder Dr Asif Chatoo has built his reputation as a pioneer in the field of lingual braces. He can use any lingual system and is still the only clinician in the UK accredited by both the World and European Lingual Societies.
Lingual braces are similar to traditional braces except they are bonded to the back of your teeth, so they are almost invisible.
Lingual braces discreetly move your teeth into the correct position and can transform your face, smile and confidence. Results can be seen quickly, with teeth appearing straighter after only a few weeks.
There are many benefits of lingual braces, with the most obvious being that as they are behind the teeth, they are almost invisible in appearance. Like standard braces, they allow optimum control over your treatment as each bracket is fitted onto each individual tooth so force is applied to all the teeth to correct misalignments.
Another benefit is the software we use. At The London Lingual Orthodontic Clinic, we are experts across all lingual brace systems but champion SureSmile Advanced as our preferred treatment option due to its advanced software capabilities. It allows Dr Chatoo to plan treatment in three dimensions and allows us to show you what can be achieved via visual simulations so you know how your smile will be transformed and what it will look like before you begin treatment.
But for many, the most important benefit is that you can see the effects of the treatment unfolding with lingual braces, whereas with conventional braces your teeth are hidden throughout.

Keeping our patients and colleagues up to date on all things orthodontic is part of our mission as well as sharing news from the clinic and recipes that work for people in braces. Check out our blog for the latest.
To understand how dramatically the internet has changed our lives, all you need to do is reflect on how we all research information.
