Description:
Research conducted by Perry in 2014 in the Republic of Ireland revealed that 51% of general dental practitioners believe that only “simple cases” can be treated with lingual appliances, whereas 49% believe that all types of malocclusions – “crooked teeth” – can be treated (Figure 1).1 This deficit in knowledge of some practitioners may result in inappropriate advice being given to patients. Research has shown that a significant number of adult patients find “commonly used” labial appliances to be unattractive and unacceptable,2 and that between 33% and 62% of adults would reject treatment with a visible appliance.3,4 It also reveals that adults are prepared to pay more money for appliances that they deem to be more aesthetic.6 If practitioners are not aware of the scope of lingual orthodontic treatment, this may result in some patients being incorrectly advised that lingual orthodontic treatment is not possible in their case.
