Incognito: the braces that are invisible in everyday life

Incognito braces are one of the most popular treatment options at Weybridge dental practice Surrey Braces. These metal appliances can be used to correct a wide number of orthodontic issues with one key difference to standard braces: because they are placed on the rear, or lingual, surfaces of the teeth, they will not be noticed in everyday life.

invisible-bracesOrthodontics for adults

It is now considered standard for children and teenagers in the UK to have orthodontic treatment as required. However, there is also an increase in demand among adult patients who want to straighten their teeth.

At our Weybridge dental practice we understand that many adults will balk at the thought of wearing standard metal braces, with treatment times of two years or more. However, we are also keen to stress that there are more than just aesthetic benefits to be gained from straightening your teeth.

With regular visits to your dentist and hygienist, straighter teeth are healthier teeth, because they are easier to keep clean, with fewer gaps in which particles of food can get trapped.

Incognito: a more discreet solution

Incognito lingual braces are just one of the products at our Weybridge dental practice that fall under the category of discreet orthodontics. This is one of the fastest-growing areas of modern dentistry as more and more adults are demanding treatments that combine maximum discretion with excellent results.

Designed with your comfort in mind

Incognito braces are designed to be more comfortable than traditional braces, too. They are customised to fit your teeth and your orthodontist at our Weybridge clinic will pay close attention to every detail to ensure your braces fit your teeth perfectly.

Because they can be used to correct all manner of orthodontic problems large and small, Incognito lingual braces afford more flexibility than some other, more cosmetically-focussed discreet orthodontic products.

Incognito: the braces that nobody will see

Incognito are braces that are different. They are lingual, which means they are attached to the rear surfaces of your teeth, thus they are invisible to the untrained eye in everyday life. These braces are just one of the discreet orthodontic options available from Surrey Braces in Weybridge.

Questions and answers about Incognito lingual braces

At Weybridge Orthodontics we’re finding more and more people are interested in treatment with Incognito lingual braces. These are a highly discreet method of moving your teeth, applying the traditional principles of orthodontic treatment combined with maximum discretion.

incognito lingual bracesHere are some common questions patients have about Incognito lingual braces. If you have any further questions, please don’t hesitate to contact a member of our Weybridge orthodontics team.

What is a lingual brace?

Lingual braces such as Incognito use the tried and tested techniques of orthodontics to correct a wide range of tooth alignment problems. Braces comprise brackets and wires that gently move your teeth into a new, more desirable position.

The major difference is that lingual braces are attached to the rear surfaces of your teeth, meaning that nobody will see them, and nobody need know that you are having orthodontic treatment, unless you choose to tell them.

Who can have treatment with Incognito braces?

Incognito lingual braces are suitable for all age groups – children, adults and teenagers. They are only available to private patients.

Are they just for cosmetic purposes?

No. Incognito braces can treat a huge range of orthodontic problems, from mild issues to more complex cases. To find out if this is the best treatment option in your case, book a consultation at our Weybridge orthodontic practice.

How long does treatment take?

Your treatment time will depend upon your individual needs, because each patient’s case is different. However, by using advanced technology and customised brackets, your teeth will be moved in a highly efficient manner.

How will my lifestyle be affected?

Again, every patient’s experience will be different. A small number of patients experience a minor speech impediment for the first couple of weeks, which will improve over time. If you play a wind or brass instrument you may need to adapt your technique slightly whilst wearing braces.

Straighten your teeth invisibly with Incognito lingual braces

Incognito lingual braces are an increasingly popular way for adults to straighten their teeth. At Weybridge Orthodontics an increasing number of patients are opting to use discreet brace systems to improve the alignment of their teeth and boost the appearance of their smile.

What are Incognito braces?

incognito lingual bracesIncognito braces use the traditional principles of orthodontics but revise them for the modern age. They are lingual braces, which means that they are attached to the rear surface of the teeth. Nobody will be able to see that you are wearing them, meaning that nobody will know you are having treatment – unless you choose to tell them.

Like regular braces, Incognito lingual braces comprise metal brackets and wires that employ gentle forces to move your teeth into a more desirable position.

The Rigorous Test of Braces

When we design braces for our patients, we give them the assurance that they will be able to correct any misalignment their teeth may have. Part of that assurance is convincing them that the braces can withstand whatever the patient will decide to put in their mouths. The question many of them ask is ‘How can brackets and wires stand against all the food we eat until the next appointment?’

Beating Up Braces

the rigorous test of bracesIt is a fact that not many patients know, but all the tools that dentists use on their patients go through a rigorous battery of strength tests before they reach the market. Researchers have come up with a variety of ways to replicate real life situations in testing dental products and tools. There is even a robot that looks like a jaw that moves up and down repeatedly to simulate chewing.

Strength testing is one of the most important hidden aspects of dentistry; because of the work such tools are expected to perform. Braces need – through constant pressure – to weaken teeth enough to move them into the desired position, as well as protect them from external forces that would push them out of alignment. It is a balancing act that requires both power and durability on the part of the tool.

No Further Testing Required

Plenty of effort goes into the construction of such materials to ensure that they can still perform under extreme situations. But, that is not license for patients to attempt to test the limits of their braces. They should focus their energy on following their dentist’s instructions on caring for their braces. The point of wearing braces is to fix misalignments, not to test how strong they are under duress.

In fact, patients would only be hurting themselves if they do that because strength testing has already been done, and they are simply putting unnecessary pressure on their teeth. Leave the dental tool testing to the professionals, and just get ready for the new straight smile you will enjoy when the braces are finally removed.

Introducing Incognito – how lingual braces can straighten your teeth discreetly

Incognito braces are among the most popular orthodontic treatments at our Weybridge dental practice. They employ the traditional principles of orthodontics, but there’s one big difference: they are lingual braces, which means they are placed on the back of your teeth. This means that they are highly discreet.

incognito lingual bracesLingual braces are suitable for correcting a wide range of orthodontic problems in patients of all ages. At Surrey Braces dental practice in Weybridge, we have used them to treat a wide range of orthodontic issues successfully.

How do lingual braces work?

Incognito lingual braces work in the same way as conventional braces, using a system of wires and brackets to gently move your teeth into a more desirable position. The major difference is that they are placed on the back of the teeth, next to the tongue, meaning that nobody will know you are having treatment unless you choose to tell them.

Although other lingual brace systems are available, Incognito is the only 100% customised appliance system for invisible orthodontics currently available in the UK.

The latest technological advances are used to create braces entirely customised to the shape of your teeth and your dental needs. At Surrey Braces in Weybridge your orthodontist will create a unique prescription for Incognito lingual braces to produce the ideal results.

Further advantages of Incognito braces

As well as being able to smile with confidence during treatment without a hint of metal on show, Incognito braces also produce fantastic and predictable results, thanks to the 3D imaging technology used by orthodontists to create your bespoke set of braces.

There is no need to remove your braces to eat and drink, and while it may take a few days for your tongue to get used to the braces, they are also renowned for being highly comfortable.

As with all orthodontic treatment, you will need to ensure that you clean around your Incognito braces carefully. Your dentist or hygienist will be able to advise you on how best to do this.

Breaking Orthodontics: The Dangers of Chewing Gum

Sticky and hard foods are things that you need to avoid once you get teeth straightening treatment. Not only do they impede the repair and realigning process of your teeth, but they may also potentially damage your teeth’s inner mechanism. While the list of things you should not chew and eat is long, chewing gum is the one thing that stands out, thanks to its availability and relative popularity.

The Dangers of Gum

bracesWhile harder food items can physically knock off and break the brackets off your braces, chewing gum bends the wires. Normally, the wires of the braces are straight to align your teeth perfectly. Constantly chewing gum bends these wires, and since your teeth follow the contours and shape of the braces, it will follow where the wire bends. If you keep chewing gum while you have braces on, it does the exact opposite of correcting your teeth, making it even worse, and potentially lengthening the time of your treatment.

Pain is something you will also experience when you constantly chew gum while you have braces on. Your teeth extend far below into your gums, and are firmly rooted within the bone. When you chew gum, the wire bends in unusual positions, which in turn causes your teeth to move around in its place. Within your gums, its roots will also start to move around, which can be quite painful and may even cause your gums to bleed.

Plaque Risk

The movement of your teeth into different and unusual directions may also cause holes and spaces between your teeth to form. Not only is this counterproductive to what your braces are trying to achieve, but you are also placing yourself at a greater risk of accumulating plaque. This colourless film of bacterial waste settles between the spaces and gaps of your teeth, and due to its acidic nature, it breaks down the enamel of your teeth. If left unattended, it may even turn into a more serious gum disease.

Our team at Weybridge Orthodontics understands how dangerous a little bit of gum can be when you have braces. Visit our website at www.surreybraces.co.uk for more information about our orthodontic treatments like Invisalign and Incognito. Arrange a consultation with us today.
