Incognito

Hidden solutions for complex straightening

You have probably heard about the braces revolution that has been going on in modern dentistry. It can seem that everyone is getting their teeth straightened now that cosmetic braces are so readily available. People are leaping at the chance to get their teeth straightened with discreet or invisible braces.

And that’s great if the dentist diagnoses you with mild to moderate alignment issues. But what if your malocclusions are more severe or complex than invisible braces can cope with?

Incognito in WeybridgeSome dentists will suggest that you start off your treatment with metal braces on the fronts of your teeth and then move to invisible braces part way through. Not a bad idea, even if it is a bit of hassle. Or how about you just stick to one set of braces and have them hidden away from view throughout your treatment? How about Incognito in Weybridge from us at Weybridge Orthodontics?

What is Incognito in Weybridge?

Incognito in Weybridge uses the reliable and accurate technology of bracket and wire braces, but with a twist. The brackets go on the tongue side of the teeth instead of the outer surfaces. They are hidden away behind your teeth and covered by your tongue (on the lower jaw), so no one can see them.

Metal bracket and wire braces are far more able to deal with complex issues, firstly because they can produce more force and secondly because it is a pulling force that can be used on issues that pushing forces can’t, such as bringing down partially descended teeth.

Getting Incognito in Weybridge

We start off with a consultation and take detailed measurements of your teeth with a hand-held scanner. These measurements are sent off to Incognito, who custom-make brackets for each of your teeth. This takes a while to do, about 3 weeks.

Once the braces have been fitted, you will come back for adjustments every few weeks. The braces will take a little bit of getting used to, but soon you will be at ease with eating, speaking and cleaning your teeth.

Depending on your individual case, treatment can take up to 2-3 years.

Things to smile about with Incognito in Weybridge

If you know your teeth need a little realignment, you may think that the time for flashing your smile is after the procedure is complete. At Weybridge Orthodontics, we would like to prove this wrong by talking to you about one of our invisible braces options – Incognito in Weybridge. We think that a few of the qualities of this teeth-straightening method are enough to make you smile right from the start of your treatment.

Incognito in WeybridgeWhy are they called Incognito in Weybridge?

This is an excellent question to start with because it gets to the heart of what’s so special about this straightening method. ‘Incognito’ means having a concealed identity. This will be you when you are wearing these braces. You won’t look like someone who is having a long-term straightening procedure but that’s just because of the magic of Incognito. While they are working away at your new, straighter smile, it’s possible to keep them your little secret.

What’s the secret?

At Weybridge Orthodontics, we are happy to let you in on the secret behind Incognito in Weybridge. Unlike many other types of braces, Incognito is attached to the backs of your teeth. This means that the equipment cannot be seen while you are having your teeth straightened. If all that has been standing between you and the smile you want are concerns about the way your braces will look, this is the solution for you.

Ok – that’s great. What else?

When you are weighing up the different options in conjunction with your team at Weybridge Orthodontics, you need more than one big plus to make up your mind. A few of the other advantages of Incognito are:

  • Less chance of affecting the look of your smile after straightening – it’s possible to get white spots on the teeth when you have braces. If these appear on the backs of the teeth, they won’t affect your look;
  • No fuss once they are in place – you don’t have to worry about your braces on a daily basis. Once they are in place, just keep your teeth clean and keep up to date with your check-ups – we’ll do the rest.

Tips to enhance your Incognito experience

Your approach to any dental treatment can change your overall experience. Be prepared, positive and proactive when it comes to your care. This ensures you feel in control and helps to keep you focused on the goal during any challenging period. When you have a long-term dental treatment like teeth straightening with Weybridge Orthodontics, there are bound to be times when you feel like you need a boost. We offer up some of these tips and ideas to help you when that happens with Incognito in Weybridge.

incognito-in-weybridgeChoosing the right braces

You have plenty of options when it comes to braces these days. If you are choosing Incognito in Weybridge, it means you want discreet, fixed braces that will not impact your look at all. If you had other priorities, you might choose a different method. Making the right choice leads to a sense of satisfaction with your equipment and makes for a smoother treatment.

Fitting

Some people find themselves a bit daunted by the thought of the fitting procedure that accompanies some teeth-straightening methods. Incognito are a little trickier to fit than most because the wires and brackets go on the back of the teeth. It’s important that you relax during treatment, take deep breaths and let your tongue sit loosely and naturally so the dentist can do the work. If you need it, you can always listen to music or an audiobook to distract you during the procedure. The whole process should take less than two hours to complete.

Care tips

Having Incognito in Weybridge on the backs of your teeth can create some awkward angles when it comes to achieving a thorough clean. To ensure that you still achieve an excellent standard of dental hygiene, you may need to add a few bits of extra equipment to your teeth-cleaning kit. Small, interdental brushes are good for getting in between the component parts of your braces. Dental floss is good for this as well. You may even wish to invest in a small dental mirror so that you can get a good look at your braces so you can check for any stray bits of food.

Discreet dental optimization

Choosing Incognito in Weybridge means you can realign your teeth using an appliance that stays hidden. You won’t have to spend months walking around with a highly visible arrangement of wires and brackets attached to your teeth. That’s because Weybridge Incognito employs a simple but effective innovation: it’s attached to the backs of your teeth. Therefore, it minimizes the potential social discomfort that people often associate with the idea of wearing braces.

Incognito in WeybridgeLooking for Incognito in Weybridge

Many of our patients choose to have Incognito in Weybridge so that their appearance isn’t disrupted by the important work of dental realignment. This treatment can bring many benefits beyond the obvious cosmetic improvements. Your bite will function more effectively because your teeth meet in more suitable positions when you close your mouth. The risk of jaw strain is therefore reduced. Also, you might find that your teeth are easier to brush, and that your chances of developing gum disease and tooth decay are lower as a result.

Proceeding to adjust your teeth

To find out whether this process is a good one for you, we’ll first have a consultation at our modern dental practice. We’ll take a good look at your teeth and listen to your hopes about their future. If Incognito in Weybridge is the right way to achieve what you desire, we’ll produce a treatment plan and start your transformation. Your braces will be custom-made so that they deliver the results you need. The time it takes to complete the process can vary, from 12-18 months or longer, depending on how much you need to adjust the orientations of your teeth.

Kind to the user

These user-friendly appliances, sometimes known as lingual braces, are constructed from lightweight materials that aim to give you a comfortable experience. They apply steady pressure to your teeth so that a better formation gradually develops. While the treatment time might sound lengthy, the benefits that Weybridge Incognito brings you will last for many years. The oral health and cosmetic effects are truly transformative. Your smile will be more harmonious, and your overall dental experience will be greatly improved.

Is Incognito in Weybridge the right treatment for you?

Incognito is a very popular teeth straightening treatment that can be used by children and adults alike. Also known as lingual braces because of its position in the mouth, Incognito in Weybridge is as effective as metal braces with an added bonus – it’s entirely invisible.

If the thought of traditional metal braces for straightening your teeth is not appealing, you can always book a consultation for Incognito in Weybridge at Weybridge Orthodontics. Our experienced dentists will help you decide if this treatment is the right option for your smile.

Incognito in WeybridgeWhat is Incognito?

Lingual braces were invented in the 1970s but didn’t become popular till much later. Nowadays, Incognito is more mainstream than ever and more patients are eager to try this discreet teeth straightening method.

Incognito is a branded type of lingual braces made with nickel-titanium brackets that are customised to fit every single tooth. Incognito uses the same hardware as traditional braces and the brackets are glued to the teeth. However, unlike regular braces, Incognito braces are hidden on the back of the teeth.

The application process for Incognito in Weybridge is virtually the same as with metal braces. Patients may need uncomfortable at first, due to the position of the brackets on the inside of their teeth, but the discomfort will soon disappear.

Incognito braces are customised to fix your unique dental problem – whether it’s crooked, gapped or overcrowded teeth. Incognito braces can also deal with more complex dental problems such as twisted and rotated teeth.

Are these braces right for you?

Knowing about the benefits and disadvantages of lingual braces is a great start to deciding whether they are the right treatment for you. Incognito in Weybridge is very discreet, convenient and can treat many different dental problems. However, oral hygiene can become quite challenging with lingual braces.

To make the best decision, book an appointment with one of our accredited Incognito dentists in Weybridge. Not only will we examine your teeth carefully, but we will also advise you on the pros and cons of Incognito braces for your individual case. We are happy to address any questions you may have.

Complex misalignments fixed with Incognito in Weybridge

Feeling jealous of all those people who only have mildly wonky teeth and can get them straightened, no trouble at all, with cosmetic braces or clear aligners?

If your dentist has told you that your misalignments are too complex to be straightened with clear ceramic braces or clear aligners, then don’t give up hope. Your straightening does not necessarily have to be carried out with metal brackets and wires fixed all over the front of your teeth, never a good look for those of you already at work.

Incognito in WeybridgeIf you come to see us at Weybridge Orthodontics, there’s a good chance we can do your straightening with a brand of braces called Incognito. In Weybridge, here at Weybridge Orthodontics, we have highly trained braces dentists and a wider range of braces and straightening devices than you will find at a general dentist.

The braces they offer are usually only any good on mild to moderate misalignments that can be fixed by someone who has been trained by the manufacturer to use their particular brand of braces, on a course that lasts only a few days.

Our training lasts for 3 years, after qualifying as general dentists, so we are able to carry out far more complex treatments.

What is Incognito in Weybridge?

Incognito is a brand of bracket and wire braces. Brackets and wires are far better suited to straightening out complex misalignments and deliver more predictable results.

The difference with Incognito is that the brackets go on the tongue-side of the tooth rather than the side that everyone sees. This means that you can have your braces treatment hidden away from view, allowing you to carry on as normal in your daily business. No staring, no intrusive questions, perfect discretion. Every braces wearer’s dream.

Custom-made for you

The tongue-side surfaces of the teeth are more complex, so each bracket is made to fit each individual tooth surface. Gold alloy is used, and the braces take longer to manufacture. Once they are on, it will take a few days to get used to them, but then the magic begins.

Why not come and find out how Incognito in Weybridge can transform your teeth?

Fly under the radar with your braces treatment

Are you tired of friends telling you how discreet their teeth straightening treatment was? It seems getting your teeth straightened as an adult is all the rage with clear aligners and tooth-coloured bracket and wire braces increasingly available at the dentist. Great for all of them, but perhaps not so much for you if you’ve been told your misalignments are too severe for clear aligners or those tooth-coloured fixed braces. Well there is no need to be down in the dumps about it anymore, not when you can get Incognito in Weybridge.

Incognito in WeybridgeYou don’t need to wear conspicuous fixed metal braces and endure stares and perhaps even sniggers. Incognito in Weybridge from Weybridge Orthodontics is a discreet, fixed braces treatment that can handle severe misalignments with ease.

How is this possible? It comes down to their innovative design.

Designed for discretion

Incognito uses the traditional mechanics of fixed metal braces pulling your teeth into alignment but with one massive difference – they are fixed onto the backs of your teeth. Each bracket is custom-made to fit the contours of the backs of your teeth, where they are secured in place by our braces dentist. They are completely hidden from view and are therefore the only braces treatment for severe misalignments that is both effective and discreet.

Time to adjust

Having braces on the backs of your teeth, next to your tongue, takes a little getting used to. But eventually the feel of those brackets and wires won’t be a distraction and you’ll be able to get on with your day as normal. You will have to invest some time in cleaning your braces properly, which can be a little trickier with the brackets on the backs of your teeth. But with some practice and advice from your dentist, you will get the hang of it.

Getting started

If you want to straighten out your teeth without the whole world knowing about it, then Incognito in Weybridge could be the way to go. The first step is to book a consultation with our braces dentist who will examine your teeth, take impressions and maybe x-rays too. So get in touch and we’ll get started.

Complex alignment solved with Incognito in Weybridge

To be honest, no one really thinks that wearing braces is going to improve their image, even if afterwards, when their teeth are straight, they will look amazing. We can dress up metal braces for kids with brightly coloured elastics round the brackets to make them a feature, but that’s not a look that’s going to work for adults. Unfortunately, most discreet and invisible braces are designed for people with mild to moderate alignment issues. Those with complex issues that require precision straightening over a pretty long period will have to have traditional bracket and wire braces.

Incognito in WeybridgeFortunately, at Weybridge Orthodontics, we have a great way you can get the best of both worlds and that’s with Incognito in Weybridge.

How Incognito in Weybridge works

Incognito braces still use metal brackets and wires, which are the style of braces most able to deliver the force and precision needed to correct complex and severe misalignments. The difference with Incognito in Weybridge is that the brackets are fixed to the tongue-side of the teeth rather than the fronts.

The gold alloy brackets are each individually made to precisely fit the inner surface of each tooth, using detailed measurements taken from impressions and a handheld scanner.

Once the brackets are in place, they are strung together with wire, just like traditional braces. The difference is that no one can see them.

How to get Incognito in Weybridge

Come in to see us at Weybridge Orthodontics and we can examine your teeth to make sure you do indeed need Incognito. If you do, we take all the measurements and send them off to the manufacturer. Because each bracket is custom-made, it takes about 3 weeks for the braces to be created and sent back to us for fitting to your teeth.

You will take a few days to get used to having braces on the inner surfaces of your teeth, and you will need to learn how to keep them thoroughly clean. But once you have got the hang of them, these braces will fit neatly into your life and over the next little while straighten out your teeth, apparently by magic.

Behind the scenes straightening

Not everybody got to have braces when they were young. Maybe you are one of those people, and now that you are an adult with your own income, you’d like to get your teeth straightened. Trouble is, getting a lovely straight set of teeth means wearing braces, and you’ve been told that your malocclusions are too complex to be successfully sorted out with discreet braces or clear aligners.

Incognito in WeybridgeSo, now you have a choice: you can either submit to clunky metal braces on the front of your teeth (not a great look in your line of work) or you can go without and spend the rest of your life holding your hand over your mouth every time you want to smile.

Actually, there is another way in Weybridge: Incognito. If you have never seen in Incognito in Weybridge, that can only mean that these invisible braces are doing what they are designed to do. That is, straightening people’s teeth while giving no clue of their presence to the rest of the world.

Here at Weybridge Orthodontics, we regularly fit Incognito braces to people’s teeth that are just too twisted, crowded, gappy or badly descended to work with simpler devices.

What is Incognito in Weybridge?

Incognito braces work like the usual bracket and wire braces. The difference is that they are fitted to the backs of the teeth, next to the tongue, where they cannot be seen.

These braces are made of gold alloy and there is a bracket for each tooth. Each bracket is custom-made to fit over the back surface of that tooth. The measurements are taken with a digital scanner or using impressions. Because the brackets are custom-made, it takes about 3 weeks between us taking your measurements and your braces arriving.

Once your braces are on, they gradually straighten your teeth with a pulling pressure as the wires between the brackets are tightened. The braces take a few days to get used to, but after that they won’t interfere with your speech.

Incognito in Weybridge can take a couple of years to work, depending on how misaligned your teeth are to start with.

It’s no longer a Catch 22 situation

Getting braces as an adult has always been a bit of a Catch 22 situation. You need to look good for your job, but having braces means that for a good while you won’t look good. If you have more complex alignment issues with your teeth, you may even be facing a couple of years with braces, and let’s face it, you never see braces down as a must-have item in the wardrobe of the busy professional. Thankfully with Incognito in Weybridge from us at Weybridge Orthodontics, you can get out of the Catch 22 and into a story with a happy ending for you and your teeth.

Incognito in WeybridgeNever seen Incognito in Weybridge?

Well that’s hardly surprising. Incognito is different from other braces designed for more complex treatments. These braces still rely on brackets and wires, which deliver more accurate, predictable movements, but they are hidden away on the inner surfaces of the teeth, next to the tongue, rather than on the fronts of the teeth.

The brackets are different as they have a different surface to deal with. Each bracket with Incognito in Weybridge is custom-made to fit the inner surface of each of your teeth. No 2 brackets are the same.

This means that when you come for your initial consultation, we will have to take some very accurate measurements of your teeth. To do this, we use 3D scanners. These scanners take hundreds of pictures of your teeth, which we then build into a highly accurate 3D image of them on a nearby screen. This is far more accurate than putty impressions.

We send these details to the Incognito laboratory, where your individual brackets are made. This takes longer than other devices, so there is a bit of wait between your initial consultation and your fitting appointment.

Once your Incognito braces are fitted, no one will be able to see them as they are hidden behind your teeth.

If you would like to find out more about Incognito in Weybridge and whether it is right for you, book a consultation with Weybridge Orthodontics. We’re waiting to help you achieve a healthy smile.
