There will be slight discomfort initially after u start off with lingual braces...as in mouth ulcers, speech difficulty, excess salivation etc.. But all these issues will settle down in a week or two... In regard to your second query.. There are certain cases that are best treated with regular braces and some which in which lingua will do a better job... Visit an orthodontist to know which treatment option will better handle ur problem...
