Course Overview
Lingual braces are lingually placed fixed brace appliances that use tried and tested techniques alongside the latest technology to improve assessment and diagnosis. Lingual braces provide patient treatment options and give predictable case results. Any dentist who has completed either the Fixed Brace certification course, Fixed Brace conversion course or the IAS Advanced course can use the appliance.
