Lingual Bracket Placement

Specialty Appliances offers two techniques for placing lingual brackets.


  1. The first bracket placement system we use is the CLASS technique. CLASS stands for Custom Lingual Appliance Set-Up, Service. This process utilizes a diagnostic set up of the anterior teeth as a template for bracket placement and archwire fabrication.

  2. The second technique is the TARG (Torque Angulation Reference Guide) system, originally developed by Ormco with the introduction of lingual. The TARG locates the lingual brackets in a coordinated manner throughout the arch using a combination of surveying and measurement instruments.


With either system, the experienced technicians at Specialty ensure bracket placement is as ideal as possible to minimize time-consuming lingual wirebending
