Welcome to the Website of the

American Lingual Orthodontic Association

The American Lingual Orthodontic Association is organized exclusively for scientific and educational purposes, more specifically to promote education and research related to lingual orthodontic appliances.

The term “lingual” refers to the inside (tongue or palate) surface of the tooth. Lingual braces are attached to that inside surface unlike traditional braces which are fixed to the outside of the teeth. With the braces positioned on the inner surface, it makes them truly invisible and provides cosmetic orthodontic treatment without the distraction of typical braces.
