Esthetically appealing, externally invisible, lingually applied orthodontic brackets are in increasing demand. Because the brackets are placed lingually, however, they appear to cause some problems with respect to speech. This study is the first to present a prospective evaluation of the articulation of 23 patients with lingual brackets by means of an(More)
The purpose of this prospective, longitudinal study was to compare the influence of two lingual bracket systems on subjective oral comfort, speech, mastication and oral hygiene.
