Totally discreet tooth alignment treatment with Incognito

If you are one of the many people with misaligned teeth in the UK, then you are aware of the discomfort and the other issues that living with this condition can cause. Many sufferers often find that they struggle to achieve and maintain any kind of high-quality standards in their oral hygiene and dental health; this leads to the increased need for dental treatments and interventions for some of the more common dental issues.

Maybe you have crooked teeth and are starting to think about making a change to this via tooth alignment treatment; you may even be researching the treatment options available to adults. There are several modern treatment options now available that can offer you great results, along with discretion while you are receiving the treatment you want.

Incognito Weybridge is a tooth alignment treatment that can offer you the treatment you require whilst being hidden in plain sight with a promise of the great results you expect to gain from any tooth alignment treatment. This means you can now receive the treatment you require with the knowledge that others around you will not know unless you decide to tell them.

An aligner to provide treatment in the modern era

Over the past few years, there was a need to investigate ways that alignment treatments could be redesigned to create a treatment device that potential patients would consider engaging with, as past alignment treatments had gained a negative reputation and reaction, purely based on the way they looked when positioned within the mouth. It quickly came to light that if a new aligner was to attract more engagement from patients, it had to be practically invisible in the mouth; that way, it would be hidden from other people.

Incognito Weybridge was just one of the solutions that would be created to meet the challenge of creating an invisible aligner, and it came at the problem from a different angle to the rest. By placing the alignment treatment behind the teeth instead of on the front side, the treatment is then completely hidden within plain view. This allows patients receiving treatment to do so with total discretion and gain the results they desire.

A comfortable way to receive your treatment

If you are looking for a comfortable way to receive the tooth alignment treatment you feel you need, then we are confident that Incognito Weybridge is the solution you have been seeking. Once your aligner treatment is in place, you will still be able to use your mouth as normal; you can eat and drink with the treatment in position. Just remember to clean your teeth afterwards to avoid the development of other issues.

One important item to be aware of is that the period needed to achieve great results with this treatment is around 12 to 18 months; this will be determined in consultation between you and our dentist.

We at Weybridge Orthodontics are a friendly and professional team ready to help create smiles for children and adults.

What to expect from your straightening treatment

When you make the decision to get Incognito Weybridge you can expect your treatment to last for somewhere between twelve and twenty-four months depending on the severity of your individual situation. You will need to attend regular appointments at our practice around every six weeks to have your appliance tightened and to make sure that your treatment is working correctly.

The appliance itself is similar to a traditional straightening appliance, but the metal brackets are attached to the inside surfaces of your teeth rather than the outer ones, making it extremely difficult to notice unless you know it is there. The brackets are attached to one another with a thin metal wire, and this is what slowly pulls your teeth into their new, straightened positions. You may feel some discomfort when you first get your appliance tightened, but this should subside within the next few days.

How to keep your smile exactly where it is

Once you have had Incognito Weybridge you will have a brand new, straight smile. It is important to follow the instructions that your practitioner gives you if you wish for your teeth to stay in their new positions. Once you have finished your treatment you will have an appointment with your practitioner where they issue you with a retainer. This will be made of a thin, clear plastic and fit comfortably over your own teeth. You should be able to speak without it impacting your speech, and you must wear it continuously for seven days after your treatment has ended. After this seven day period you will need to continue to wear your retainer but can reduce it to nighttime wear only. You will need to continue to wear your retainer for several months or even years in some cases to prevent your teeth from returning to their old, crooked positions. Your retainer should last you a long time, but in the instance that you lose it or damage it you should contact our practice immediately so we can book you in for an appointment and arrange to get a replacement retainer for as soon as possible.

Incognito braces; FAQs answered

Are you an adult with a severe dental misalignment who wants a straighter smile? But does the thought of wearing a fitted brace fill you with dread?

incognito-weybridge

Luckily, you can get all of the advantages of a fitted brace without the noticeable aspects, from a lingual brace.

At Weybridge Orthodontics, we can offer one of the most popular lingual braces, Incognito Weybridge, to those who want a straighter smile without the inconveniences of a standard brace. Perfect!

Here we answer common questions about Incognito Weybridge to help you understand the brace a bit better.

Can anyone wear this brace?

Concerning Incognito Weybridge, there is a wide group that can use this brace.

Children, teenagers and adults can all wear this lingual brace as it is fitted.

While there is no real clinical difference between wearing a standard brace or a lingual one, our team will ultimately decide if you would benefit more from one type than the other.

Do the braces look different from regular braces?

Yes, they do and no they don’t.

A lingual brace is made from the same base materials as a standard brace; there are metal wires and brackets that are attached to the teeth. But the brackets are made from gold and thus look a bit classier.

However, when they are on your teeth, they look vastly different from traditional braces as they are fitted on the inside of the teeth and so no one will be able to see that you are wearing them.

Will it alter my speech?

As this brace is placed on the inside of your teeth it is likely that, in the first week of use, your speech will alter slightly as your tongue adjusts to it being where it is.

If you are looking for some pointers on how to ensure that your speech is minimally affected by the use of this brace, talk to our team for tips. We may recommend singing!

How long will it take?

On average, the wearing of this brace can take between 12-18 months to correct misalignments. During this time, you will probably need to see our team every 6-8 weeks for adjustments and tightening.

However, if you have a more minor issue, such as minimal crowding, you may only need to wear it for between 3-6 months and then we may be able to switch your treatment to an invisible aligner.

Will it be uncomfortable?

In this day and age where there are invisible aligners and dental implants, you would assume that dental braces were completely comfortable too.

However, as these braces are fitted, they will require adjustments and tightening. And while they are self-ligating (thus reducing pressure in the jaw) we would be telling fibs if we said that you won’t feel any kind of pressure while wearing them.

They are designed to move your teeth and, as they are aimed at correcting more severe misalignments, they are likely to need more adjustments than a clear brace. To mitigate any discomfort, you will need to take over-the-counter pain relief such as ibuprofen or paracetamol. If you find you are in intense discomfort while wearing this brace, contact our team.

Hidden wonders

incognito-in-weybridge

At Weybridge Orthodontics we always want our patients to feel their absolute best and have the confidence in themselves to smile to their heart’s content.

Treatments such as Incognito in Weybridge are one of the many ways that we achieve this goal, by giving patient’s of all ages the opportunity to realign crooked or overcrowded teeth without impacting how they look aesthetically.

The ability to discretely realign smiles has resulted in a huge rise in the amount of patient’s – both younger and older – turning to us here at Weybridge Orthodontic and expressing an interest in Incognito braces.

What makes Incognito braces special?

Incognito in Weybridge is a form of treatment that is known as cosmetic orthodontics, whereby the orthodontic treatment has been specifically designed so as to minimise the visible impact it has on a patient’s appearance.

Incognito braces achieve a straighter smile through a method that is, in principle, very similar to how conventional fixed metal braces operate.

Traditional braces require a bracket to be boned around the front of each tooth, which is then connected using a thin metal or plastic wire. Over time, this wire applies tension to the crooked or overlapping teeth and pulls them into position.

Where Incognito braces differ, however, and what separates them as a cosmetic orthodontic treatment, is that the brackets and wires are all attached to the inside of a patient’s teeth only – meaning they are obscured from sight.

Being hidden in this way allows for patients of any age to undergo fast-acting and effective long term dental realignment, without ever having to be concerned with the aesthetic implications of fixed metal braces.

How do you get Incognito in Weybridge?

At Weybridge Orthodontics we’ve helped transform countless smiles through Incognito treatment over the years.

We always find that the best way to start Incognito treatment off is with an initial consultation to discuss the details of Incognito treatment – such as the timescale and what results patients can expect. These consultations also let us take the measurements and photographs which we will need to craft each patient’s custom-made braces.

Incognito is the UK’s only fixed orthodontic appliance which is both 100% custom-fitted and discrete. As such, each set of Incognito braces must be carefully crafted for the patient who is receiving them, so they fit perfectly to the interior of their teeth.

Before our orthodontists fit every patient with their unique Incognito lingual braces system, we use 3D rendering technology to create an accurate image of what their smile will look like once they have finished their treatment.

We’ve found that this can be a great help in giving patients the confidence they need to go ahead with Incognito treatment as they can see how the results will pay off in the end.

If you are interested to find out more about what Incognito braces could do to straighten your smile, then the first step is to arrange a consultation with one of our in-hour dentists.

As all installations of Incognito braces are unique and tailored to those who are getting them, we always work our hardest to adapt our services to meet every patient’s specific needs.

Straightening the teeth with Incognito Weybridge

Removing the emotional barriers which may stop you getting the smile you want.

When looking into brace or retainer options for our smile we are filled with images of clear retainers and metal brackets, all of which sit on the front of the teeth and although, with modern technology, are nearly invisible, can still not be the solution for you. This is why Incognito Weybridge was created. This small bracket system works by sitting on the inside of your teeth, ensuring that the patient can receive the treatment they want without anyone knowing.

Getting started with Incognito Weybridge.

Similarly to other orthodontic treatments our team at Weybridge Orthodontics will arrange a consultation with you to discuss your aims when it comes to your teeth and smile. During this time we will work hard to understand where we are starting from and what your finishing aim is. This is of great importance as we will be working together throughout your treatment to ensure that you are gaining the smile you want. This consultation provides both you and our team with opportunities to ask questions surrounding the processes offered and what would suit your situation best. Whilst we can recommend all the treatments under the sun, the important thing is that you are comfortable with the option before undergoing any treatment or procedure and therefore the final decision will always be yours.

Should you decide that Incognito braces are the option for you, our team will begin taking digital scans of your teeth to create a 3D image and carry out a thorough examination of the mouth, teeth and gums so as to create your custom-made brace. This is of great importance to ensure that the brace fits correctly to your teeth and begins the work with minimal discomfort at the very most.

Are the Incognito Weybridge braces removable?

As with all brace methods, the brackets are fixed to the teeth and joined together using a series of wires. This is a highly effective treatment which ensures that the patient cannot keep removing the brace and forgetting to put it back on. Whilst removable retainers are extremely effective and suitable to many patients, in some cases the fixed brace option is much more suitable and takes away the responsibility of remembering to remove and reapply the retainer during various daily processes.

Will this affect how I clean my teeth?

When carrying out your daily oral hygiene process there may be a couple of alterations that need to be made to ensure that your teeth continue to receive the clean and care that they need. However, this is not something to be concerned about as your dental team at Weybridge Orthodontics will advise you on any alterations needed and they will always be small changes so no need for heavy machinery or 3 hour long processes!

If you are considering your options and looking to straighten your teeth, contact our dental team at Weybridge Orthodontics as we are able to provide you with the most up-to-date knowledge whilst ensuring that you are under no pressure. We are always here to work with you so contact us today to ensure you are understanding all your options.

incognito-weybridge

Yes, it is now wonderfully possible to straighten one’s teeth without having to endure so many of the frustrations that can accompany wearing highly efficient, but noticeable, traditional braces. While the rewards of teeth straightening are abundant, some patients find themselves unable to look past the modicum of inconvenience they have to go through with some types of fixed braces. Now that these barriers such as embarrassment are done away with, thanks to innovations such as Incognito Weybridge, adult orthodontic patients can once again embrace their teeth alignment goals.

What to know about Incognito Weybridge

The Incognito™ Lingual Bracket System has certainly opened up patients’ imaginations when thinking about orthodontics. This particular teeth straightening system showcases a distinctive design – the braces sit behind the teeth as opposed to the front. This innovative positioning makes it possible for Incognito braces to work their magic behind the scenes so to speak. This also offers Incognito braces as the strongest argument for invisible braces that blend the two worlds of strength and function.

In addition to this, this most remarkable orthodontic appliance is a result of the latest developments in dental technologies.

The system makes use of custom-made braces that factor in the exact shape of the patient’s mouth to ensure precise results. Each patient’s prescription is as unique as their goals and needs. This feature of Incognito’s modern orthodontics system inspires confidence that the patient does not receive a run-of-the-mill treatment plan, but rather one designed around his or her situation.

The system retains some elements of the wires and brackets system found on traditional braces – the archwires and brackets along with bonding – continue in their reliable roles aligning teeth into proper, desirable positions.

Some of the challenges of teeth straightening that Incognito helps with include the following:

  • No need to remove the braces to eat and drink
  • The braces are not visible when you smile
  • Reduced risk of white spots forming on tooth surfaces
  • Minimal interference with speech clarity

One of the most welcome characteristics of modern orthodontics is that patients can look at a realistic view of the result of their treatment at the very first consultation appointment. This is made possible through the use of 3D imaging technology which can deliver the results with astonishingly high accuracy. There is no question that every attention to detail is paid to deliver targeted results.

Patients may also be interested to note that there is another advantage to Incognito braces; they can be used to accommodate flexibility where not every tooth will need the braces.

Another positive of 3D technology in the design of custom-designed braces is that attention is given to every detail to ensure the appliance fits in perfectly with the patient’s oral situation.

Need a discreet brace? A guide to Incognito braces by Weybridge Orthodontics

Are you looking for a more sturdy brace as an adult that doesn’t draw stares, but also straightens complex misalignments?

incognito-weybridge

When you come to Weybridge Orthodontics for realignment, we can assess your suitability for one of our most popular braces; Incognito Weybridge! Discreet, functional and worn by royalty, this brace does it all while being affixed to the back of your teeth! Brilliant!

Want to know more about Incognito Weybridge? Read on for our brief guide to help you become more informed!

What are they?

In short, Incognito Weybridge is a simple, metal brace with the wires and brackets fixed to the back of the teeth as opposed to the front.

Due to this, they are more subtle than regular braces and are able to treat a wider range of misalignment issues. They do require tightening in the same way as regular braces to move the teeth, and while some patients have found them initially quite tough to adjust to as they rub against the tongue, we can resolve this initial irritant with dental wax. Perfect!

Suitability

Unlike many other braces that are discreet, this brand of lingual brace is suitable for patients of all ages; as it is fitted, there is no concern about children removing it and forgetting to put it back in afterwards!

As mentioned before, it can treat more complex cases of misalignment and is, therefore, more versatile than aligners like Invisalign. But of course, to assess your suitability for it, our team will need to examine your teeth and discuss this option with you, to ensure that you are aware of all that it entails.

Treatment time

OK, so we have established that this brace can be used to treat more complex cases and, due to its discretion, it is favoured among adults and teenagers.

Therefore, in a similar vein as regular orthodontic braces, many of our patients who have been suited to using it have worn it for an average of 9-15 months. Remember, no one will be able to see it, so we are certain that the treatment time will fly by without any insecurity or concerns about appearance.

Appointment occurrence

As before, you need to remember that this is a metal brace and so, it will require tightening to move your teeth.

And, while we cannot stipulate on the specifics of your individual orthodontic case, many patients who have worn this brace have needed tightening about every 6 weeks. Your tightening sessions may be closer together, especially if our team is working to correct a specific issue, like the rotation of a canine or molar.

Aftercare

As is the way with braces, once they come off, you will need to wear a retainer; this is to ensure that your teeth do not relapse into their former positions.

If you don’t wear a retainer for the specified time, your teeth can move or become more misaligned than they were before treatment, making the entire process a waste of time. Don’t risk it and wear the retainer!

What is meant by Incognito, Weybridge?

Weybridge Orthodontics know that there are good reasons why many potential patients do not contact an orthodontist for treatment. There are still negative associations with the wearing of braces, with many people believing braces are unsightly and will lead to them becoming embarrassed by having to wear them.

incognito-weybridge

What many people may not have realised is that this no longer has to be the case, thanks to modern technology and practices. We are proud to introduce Incognito Weybridge, a new kind of brace that will help to change the way you will think about the need to use braces.

Incognito: an introduction

The Incognito™ Lingual Bracket System is a new technology that has enabled the creation of a new format of braces that are practically invisible to the eyes of others looking straight at you, as you are talking and smiling. Now you can receive Incognito Weybridge, knowing that you will not feel self-conscious whilst receiving the treatment needed to straighten your teeth. Best of all, you can keep smiling throughout your treatment.

These Incognito braces are customised to fit into place in the client’s mouth behind the teeth, using the latest in material technologies to gain the best results and be comfortable for them to wear. The Incognito Weybridge braces are designed to always remain in place throughout the treatment period, causing no major issues whilst eating and drinking.

We are certain that the results gained using this new state-of-the-art technology will put a smile on the face of any patient using this treatment. You can find out if this treatment is the right one for you via a full consultation and examination carried out by one of our expert orthodontists.

The results of treatment

More people than you may think find they need to undergo some form of orthodontic treatment, many more have considered it as an option. The whole purpose is to give every patient the ability to have the teeth they are looking for and need, as well as increasing the quality of their oral health.

Having your teeth straightened gives you the ability to take greater care of your oral hygiene by making it easier to clean your teeth and gums. This in turn helps to decrease the chances of issues such as gum disease and bad breath.

Another common problem that brace technology can help solve is that of a weakened or misaligned bite. Realigning your teeth will help to increase the strength of your bite, making it easier for you to chew food and eat.

Prepare for treatment

You must maintain a high standard of oral hygiene when preparing to receive orthodontic treatment, as well as throughout your treatment time.  You may want to seek advice from your consultant and start to adopt some good practices for your oral hygiene in the weeks leading up to the start of your treatment.

Getting used to these practices in advance will help lower the risk of gum disease and other complications whilst you are wearing your braces.

Incognito Weybridge is the only invisible option available

For those people who wish to enjoy their natural smile whilst also straightening their teeth, then the only real option that is available to you is Incognito Weybridge. This treatment is a fixed device, which means it is attached to your teeth for the duration of the treatment.

incognito-weybridge

Fixed devices do have their advantages over removable ones, but it really is a preference to many as to what they feel would best suit their personal needs and their lifestyle when deciding on the style of device which they would find most suitable.

If you think that Incognito Weybridge might be an option for you, then we encourage you to discuss this with your dentist so that that can determine whether you are suitable for this treatment. Unfortunately, Incognito Weybridge isn’t the right choice for everyone, but if you have a mild or moderate misalignment, it is likely that we can provide you with the service that you need.

Those with more complex cases will find that a more traditional treatment will grant them the best results. Our professionals need to have the ability to manipulate the wires that are pulling teeth into their correct position so that they can respond accordingly to your teeth as they go through this extensive procedure.

If your complex case goes outside of the realms of what is common, then we will encourage you to choose a more traditional option so that you can enjoy those results that you’re seeking, faster.

How does this treatment differ from a traditional brace?

Because these lingual braces are attached to the back of the teeth, there are factors that we need to account for that we generally do not need with front-facing braces.

For one, we cannot see the back of our teeth so we wouldn’t be able to detect any food debris trapped within the brackets and wires like we can with traditional front-facing options. Our tongue also works up against the back of our teeth a lot for speech and the rough texture of exposed wires can cause your tongue serious damage over time.

This is why these lingual braces are coated in a gold plating, to create a smooth edging that repels bacteria and is comfortable for your tongue to glide over.

Are there any complications that I need to be aware of?

Although some people report a slight lisp during the early weeks of treatment, this usually fades away as you become more used to the device against your teeth.

Complications can arise like they can for any device and we just need to ensure that the lines of communication are consistently open so that you feel relaxed and comfortable enough to speak with us about any of them. This way, we can tackle them head on and help you to find solutions so that your teeth straightening journey is the best it can be.

If you want to enjoy straightening your teeth without anyone knowing, then these lingual braces are your best option, being the one true invisible teeth straightening device available.
