The Linguale by
All Linguale by Issembert orthodontic treatments include a double retainer at the end of the treatment, which is included in the price of the treatment. Double retention, if respected, is the guarantee of a stable treatment over time.
- Prediction of stripping to the nearest tenth of a millimeter to correct black triangles in particular
- Rings inside totally invisible when smiling.
- Coordination of the arches to avoid recurrences
- Predicting the restraint: an occlusion that allows for a stable restraint wire over time, to prevent recurrence
- A global package, which systematically includes double restraint (wire + 2 safety gutters)
- Dr. Issembert has his own technician whom he has trained himself, and he finalizes the movements of his technician tooth by tooth. Each case is worked on by the doctor.
- 17 years of expertise in lingual orthodontics, with several hundred patients treated each year by Dr. Issembert himself.
The Mixed Lingual
It is a combination of lingual braces on the top and external ceramic braces on the bottom. Since the lower bands are hidden by the lower lip most of the time, this alternative is very often chosen by patients. This treatment is therefore a very interesting option and just as effective in terms of results as the total lingual.
The pictures opposite illustrate the point: the patient has lingual bands that remain covered by the lower lip when she smiles.
Cases that can be treated in Lingual by Issembert
All cases can be treated with Lingual by Issembert: cases without surgery, without surgery, with extraction, without extraction… Thus, it is possible to treat the following cases with Lingual or Lingual Mixed by Issembert:
A crossbite is a misalignment of the upper and lower jaws. One or more teeth of the lower arch may be outside the upper arch.
The upper teeth overlap the lower teeth too much, which causes wear on the tips of the lower incisors and prevents the placement of a retention wire on top. The cases presented here combine moderate to severe overlap with these overlaps.
In the case of forward teeth, stripping or extractions are used to generate space to move back. The cases presented here are cases of bi-proalveolarity, i.e. the two arches go together in the front.
The gap is characterized by the absence of contact between the upper and lower teeth. We speak of a posterior gap when it is located in front, and anterior when it is in the back that the contact is absent.
Due to a lack of space on the arch, teeth overlap. Stripping is often used to create space in addition to the orthodontic forces delivered by conventional or invisible appliances. In more severe cases, extractions may be considered.
Some patients, for different reasons (gingival recession, loss of papilla) present black triangles between certain teeth. An orthodontic treatment associated with stripping allows the contact points between the teeth to be raised and the incidence of black triangles to be reduced.
When the lower teeth are more forward than the upper teeth. It is possible to correct this type of case by combining surgery with Invisalign treatment.
These are spaces between the teeth that are corrected with orthodontic treatment. Depending on the nature of the spaces to be closed, the treatment plan is different.
The cases we have described here are the most common, but many specific cases may present themselves for treatment. These include surgical cases (Cl2, Cl3, etc), or cases with extraction.
Lingual By Issember
- It is a totally invisible treatment, the braces are positioned on the inner side of the teeth
- Once the braces are on, they do not require any particular maintenance. You just have to respect the authorized food and have a perfect dental hygiene.
Lingual by Issembert for children and teenagers
Lingual rings, or mixed linguals, can be combined with early treatment appliances: circuit breaker or Herbst for example.
What are the recommendations for a Lingual treatment?
- Do not eat sticky or crunchy foods.
- Brush your teeth after every meal.
- Teeth may be sensitive to chewing for 3 days after the braces are placed. Do not hesitate to take paracetamol (Doliprane, Efferalgan…) in case of pain while respecting the indications on the instructions. In case of doubt, it is essential to ask our advice or that of your pharmacist.
- At the beginning of the treatment, small irritations due to the friction of the braces on the tongue may appear. You should not hesitate to apply orthodontic wax, which will be provided to you at the office, to the areas that are bothering you. This wax can be left in place during meals. There is no health risk if you accidentally swallow it. In general, after two weeks, the mucous membrane covering the cheeks and lips becomes more resistant and the wax is no longer necessary.
