Active Lingual Bond

Active Lingual Bond - Example of Upper Teeth


If you want a straighter smile but do not want to wear metal braces, if you just don't want the responsibility of having to manage removable appliances like retainers or clear aligners, or if you've had treatment in the past and want to make minor corrections to your smile, the Lingual Q-Tube Technique might be for you.

How does Q-Tube Technique work?

Used to straighten anterior teeth that demonstrate mild to moderate crowding, there are many advantages to orthodontic treatment with the Lingual Q-Tube Technique.

Small modified micro tubes are bonded directly to the back surfaces of misaligned teeth as an alternative to traditional braces or clear removable aligners. A series of flexible wires, placed thru the tubes, help guide teeth into their proper alignment.

Just like braces and clear aligners, these wires use gradual force to control tooth movement. Since they are placed behind the teeth they are virtually invisible.


Is the Q-Tube Technique Right For Me?

The best way to find out if Q-Tube treatment is the right option for you is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Covino. It's your first step toward achieving the beautiful smile you've always wanted!
