Are lingual braces harder to clean?

I want to straighten my teeth with a lingual brace. Are lingual braces harder to clean?

Yes, lingual braces are harder to clean because they are placed in the lingual area of your teeth. But there are dental accessories that will help you clean them well such as tooth brush and water pick.
The difficulty varies on the individual. Dental Hygiene with any sort of braces takes consistency and commitment. Does not matter if the brace is on the front or the back of the tooth.
Much harder, tartar usually builds up on the lingual side of the front teeth
Yes. But a good tool for it is a waterpick. Doing what is right, it is always the right thing to do.
