When dental researchers set their minds to something, they can come up with all sorts of innovations that move techniques and treatments forward in leaps and bounds.
When they realised that there was a large amount of the adult population who would love to have straighter teeth, if only they didn’t have to wear embarrassing braces that would interfere with their career and social standing, they put their minds to the task of developing discreet braces.
Now there is quite a range to choose from. Some braces are discreet, some are invisible and some, like Incognito in Weybridge, are hidden. Hidden because they sit behind the teeth, next to the tongue, rather than being attached to the front of the teeth, where everyone can see them.
Predictable, accurate results
Incognito in Weybridge are the braces of choice for people who have more complex or severe alignment issues. This is because they use brackets and archwires to pull the teeth into alignment, just like traditional braces.
Traditional brackets and wires tend to be able to exert more force and therefore work better on the premolars and molars, which have 3 roots each to move. Brackets and wires are also able to deliver more predictable results.
100% customised braces
Incognito in Weybridge are the only braces to be 100% customised. Because the brackets go on the insides of the teeth, they need to be able to fit each tooth exactly. The archwires are also fully customised.
At Weybridge Orthodontics, we take detailed measurements of your teeth using a handheld scanner and these measurements are used to manufacture each bracket individually. This means it takes a bit longer, so please expect a wait of about 3 weeks before your braces arrive.
Once your Incognito braces have been fitted, you will soon get used to wearing them. You can go about your life without having to feel at all self-conscious about having braces. To all intents and purposes, it will seem to the outside world as if your teeth are straightening themselves instead of being helped by these hidden braces.
