I had lingual braces for two years. I now have perfectly straight teeth as a result. I am extremely happy with my teeth. I decided to get braces because my front teeth were crocked and I was biting my lip allot as a result. I did have to pay more for the lingual braces but it was worth it because of my age (mid 30's), my job and I was dating at the time. It is an adjustment at first when the lingual braces are put on, as is any type of braces. I had the traditional braces as a teenager, but did not wear my retainer. That was an expensive lesson learned. The lingual braces will at first give you a slight lisp but after two weeks you adjust. I used a water pik daily to help clean the braces and used Brace-eze when I would get any slight irritation from a wire or bracket after an adjustment. I think anyone getting braces needs to realize that regardless of the type braces you have, braces are meant to correct misaligned teeth and that comes with a slight discomfort at times due to teeth moving. Lingual braces are not anymore uncomfortable than regular traditional braces on the front of your teeth. It is extremely important that you have a very well trained Orthodontist and staff, check with people who have had braces or read online reviews. I spoke with many people who had gone to my Orthodontist before making my appointment. He came highly recommended, in fact my niece now sees him as well. I hope if you decide to get lingual braces that your experience is a pleasant one like mine.
I would like to note after reading other reviews...

Never had any problems. If a bracket or wire was loose I could call and get in that day for repair. Used Care credit to pay for the braces and it was interest free for 24 months.
