Incognito

The James Bond of braces

He wears smart suits, drinks martinis and fights crime worldwide. But do you know what else makes James Bond so timelessly cool? It’s the gadgets. That pen or belt-buckle that magically turns into a lethal weapon; it’s the power that comes from expertly hiding fantastic technology, so 007 can get on with doing what he does best. When it comes to teeth straightening, we think Incognito in Weybridge really is the James Bond of braces. It’s traditional technology with an ingenious upgrade. It’s more than discreet, it’s completely hidden. And it lets you get on with doing what you do best without having to worry about conspicuous braces ruining your look.

Incognito in WeybridgeNeedless to say, we’re big fans of Incognito in Weybridge at Weybridge Orthodontics. The reason stems largely from the transformative effects we’ve seen these braces have on our patients lives, particularly those with more severe alignment issues with their teeth, who have often resigned themselves to either a lifetime of wonky teeth or the embarrassment of sporting the train track look during their treatment. We are always delighted to let them know that there is another way.

What’s the story with Incognito in Weybridge?

We haven’t quite got the panache of Q when it comes to unveiling technological innovations but let us lay out just what makes Incognito in Weybridge so different from other discreet teeth-straightening devices:

  • Incognito uses brackets and wires but rather than being fixed to the fronts of the teeth they are attached to the back surfaces of the teeth
  • Incognito can handle mild, moderate and severe misalignment issues owing to the fact that it uses traditional bracket and wire technology, which is designed to resolve more complex dental problems
  • Incognito is a highly customised teeth-straightening treatment as each bracket is specially designed to fit an individual tooth.

A great solution for tricky teeth

Have you noticed how fewer and fewer people have wonky teeth these days? How are yours? Have you heard about all the great new ways there are to get teeth straightened? Have you also heard that so many of the more discreet ways seem to be designed for people with only mild to moderate misalignment concerns? Great for them, but not so good for you if you’re on the more complex end of the misalignment spectrum.

Incognito in WeybridgeIf you’d like to get your teeth straightened by can’t face the months and months in brackets and wires that seem to be your only option, we have a nifty solution for you. Come and investigate Incognito in Weybridge.

If you have complex alignment issues, you are going to need more than an aligner or a very simple clear bracket and wire brace can handle. Clear aligners can’t, for example, pull down a tooth that has not descended properly, and the more simple bracket and wire devices are designed to work on the front few teeth only.

Incognito in Weybridge

This device can deal with any amount of complex straightening and it does it without anyone knowing you are wearing it. How? By being fixed to the tongue side of the teeth rather than the cheek side. Incognito in Weybridge is what is known as a lingual (tongue side) brace. It still has brackets, but each one is custom-made to go onto the backs on each individual tooth. Each tooth is measured very accurately with a scanner to get the exact dimensions and these are sent off to the manufacturer. Because each bracket is individually made, it takes about 3 weeks to get your braces made. That means there’s quite a long wait between your consultation and coming in to get your braces fitted, but it will be worth it.

Of course, it will take a few days to adjust to wearing Incognito in Weybridge and you may well have to make some brave food choices to keep your device in one piece, but at the end of treatment, it will have so been worth it.

It isn’t a problem with Incognito

There are times when you’ll want to show off you new bling, whether it’s a piercing complete with a shiny, new stud or a flashy pair of cufflinks gifted to you. Glinting metal isn’t always a beautiful sight to behold though. Wearing braces is a prime example. Maybe friends have told you that you don’t need to endure the embarrassment of fixed metal braces thanks to clear aligners or tooth-coloured braces. Unfortunately, you know those are of no use to you; your misalignments are just too severe.

Incognito in WeybridgeGood news, at Weybridge Orthodontics we have just the thing for you, discreet braces that can handle mild, moderate and severe cases of misalignment. It’s called Incognito. In Weybridge this teeth-straightening treatment is a popular choice for adults with crowding, protrusion or rotation of their teeth, which other discreet braces just can’t handle.

How does Incognito work?

Incognito in Weybridge is a fixed braces treatment. But before you picture yourself sporting the train track look, hold on. Although these braces are metal and fixed, they are attached to the back surfaces of your teeth, facing your tongue. So, unless someone gets very up close and personal, they aren’t going to spot your braces.

Using the traditional mechanics of fixed metal braces means Incognito in Weybridge can handle more severe cases of misalignment that other discreet braces, such as Invisalign or Six Month Smiles, can’t.

Custom-made just for you

As Incognito braces are attached to the backs of your teeth, each bracket is specifically designed to fit onto each individual tooth. This really is the ultimate is personalised braces treatment.

See the final finish from the start

3D imaging technology means you’ll get the chance to see the predicted results of your treatment before you even get your braces fitted. We’ll also be able to give you an estimate of roughly how long it will take to achieve these results.

What’s next?

If Incognito in Weybridge sounds like the solution you’ve been waiting for, get in touch with our braces dentist today. After a thorough oral examination, perhaps including x-rays, we’ll be able to let you know if Incognito is right for you.

Braces behind your teeth with Incognito in Weybridge

Braces don’t really add to your image. As a kid, you can expect to get teased for having braces, so if you are an adult in an important position at work, or perhaps you deal with the public, or have to look extra well-groomed in some way, the last thing you need is braces on your teeth.

Trouble is, the first thing you need is great, well aligned teeth. It’s a conundrum, that’s for sure. Or at least it used to be, but dental researchers have been working hard over the last couple of decades to design braces that don’t dominate your mouth. There are several that work well on mild to moderate misalignment issues, but if you have more complex issues, does it mean you have to have the metal mouth look?

Incognito in WeybridgeNo, not if you come for Incognito in Weybridge with us at Weybridge Orthodontics.

Never heard of Incognito in Weybridge?

Well then, here’s your chance to find out more! Incognito is a brand of fixed braces, but not as you know them. Instead of having the brackets and wire on the front surfaces of your teeth, they go on the inside, adjacent to your tongue. This means they are completely hidden from view.

The brackets look a bit different too. They are made of gold alloy for starters and each one fits over the entire surface of your tooth. They take a bit longer to make as each bracket is custom-made from detailed measurements to exactly fit each tooth.

Because you have a bracket on each tooth, Incognito in Weybridge works really well to correct complex alignment problems. Such issues take longer to correct as the teeth have to be moved in order. The biological processes involved in moving teeth – the dissolution and rebuilding of bone around the tooth to allow it to move – cannot be hurried. Because of this, complex issues can take a good couple of years to sort out, but with your braces hidden from view, that’s not such a big deal.

To find out about Incognito in Weybridge, why not come in for a consultation?

The tongue side of teeth straightening with Incognito in Weybridge

It’s all well and good getting adult braces when you only have mild to moderate alignment issues going on. You can have clear ceramic brackets, tooth-coloured wires or clear aligners that pretty much disappear altogether when they go on over your teeth. But what if your teeth are way more wonky than such devices can cope with? Do you have a stark choice between living with teeth that look like they had a party in your mouth or spending a couple of years behind the bars of heavy duty braces?

Incognito in WeybridgeThe answer is no. There is a third option: Incognito in Weybridge from us at Weybridge Orthodontics. These gold alloy beauties can cope with any alignment issue, no matter how severe and complex, and they can do it with complete discretion, even more so than clear aligners.

Behind the teeth, not in front

The clever thing about Incognito in Weybridge is that they are fixed to the tongue side of the teeth rather than the cheek side. This means they are completely hidden from view.

Incognito is a bracket and wire device but the difference is that each bracket is made to measure for the lingual side of each of your teeth. We scan your teeth to get pinpoint accurate measurements and devise a treatment plan. The gold alloy brackets take a while to make, so there is a hiatus between your measurement appointment and coming back to get your braces fitted.

Once they are on, you may find it takes a few days to get used to wearing them. Your speech may not be as clear as you adjust to having lingual braces but this will pass.

You will need to come back to us for regular check-ups and adjustments and how long the treatment takes depends entirely on what needs to be done. It could be 2 years or more for complex alignment issues. To everyone around, it will look as though your teeth are being straightened by magic.

After your teeth are aligned, you will need to wear a retainer to keep your teeth in the correct place while the jawbone settles down around them.

Try something different

Sometimes, going against the norm can become the popular thing to do. Way back in the 90s going back to front with your baseball cap was all the rage. Just a few years ago back to front shirts were causing a stir. When it comes to braces, going back to front is also proving to be a big hit with adult patients.

By back to front, we mean attaching fixed metal braces to the backs of the teeth, instead of their fronts. Yes, it’s possible, as unusual as it sounds. These are lingual braces and at Weybridge Orthodontics we are proud to provide one of the leading brands across the UK, including in Weybridge: Incognito.

Incognito in WeybridgeIs Incognito right for you?

Unlike some other discreet teeth straightening systems that focus on only the front teeth or only mild misalignments, Incognito in Weybridge can resolve a range of dental problems. Mild, moderate and complex cases can all be treated with Incognito, including issues with spacing, crowding, protruding teeth or teeth that do not bite together properly.

Another benefit of Incognito is that these braces can be used at any age, from childhood through to adulthood.

How does Incognito work?

Incognito works along similar principles as traditional fixed metal braces, pulling the teeth into alignment via a wire that connects the brackets attached to the teeth. However as the brackets are attached to the backs of the teeth, every single one must be custom-made for each of your teeth. Incognito in Weybridge really is the ultimate in personalised teeth straightening treatment.

The technology behind Incognito

3D imaging technology is used to custom-design Incognito braces. This comes with the added benefit of giving you the chance to see what the finished product will look like and also means we can predict the effectiveness of your treatment with a high degree of accuracy.

Available in Weybridge, Incognito is a type of dental brace with an innovative feature: it’s attached to the backs of your teeth. This means that the wires and brackets that apply pressure to your teeth will be a low-key, hardly noticeable presence in your mouth.

What does Incognito do?

When your treatment is over, everyone will notice how your smile has more cosmetic appeal. You’ll also probably enjoy a more comfortable experience of eating, and an increased level of oral hygiene. The reduction in awkward spaces between the teeth gives bacteria less of a chance to hide and build up to dangerous levels.

During your consultation, we’ll take some images of your teeth. When it’s clear that Incognito in Weybridge is suitable for your condition, we’ll attach the lightweight braces to the backs of your teeth. You might then spend the next 12 months wearing Incognito. If your teeth need more adjustment, this might be longer. Whatever the situation is, we’ll always tell you how long the process will last before it begins.

Gentle progress

The wires and brackets of Incognito in Weybridge are carefully set up so that your teeth will slowly move into straighter, healthier positions. Progress is steady, while the braces’ lack of visibility makes them a popular choice for people whose jobs bring them face-to-face with lots of people.

After the braces are removed, we’ll probably give you a retainer to wear in your mouth as you sleep. This secures the teeth in their improved positions.

The experience of wearing Incognito in Weybridge

At Weybridge Orthodontics, we offer lingual braces as one of our teeth straightening options. These are fixed to the backs of the teeth so that they cannot be seen during treatment. One of the popular options that we work with is Incognito in Weybridge.

Incognito offers many patients the discreet solution they have been looking for. However, a bit of research on the internet shows that there are some common concerns regarding lingual braces. These are:

Incognito in WeybridgeLonger treatment time

It is true that the price for completely invisible braces is often a longer treatment time. This is because the application of pressure through the backs of the teeth is slightly lighter. Treatment times vary between 18-36 months. Patients tend to be less worried about the length of time though because the look of their smile is not affected. Also, it can feel like a gentler treatment with less discomfort than with standard braces due to the lighter pressure.

Interference with the tongue

As with any braces, it can take time to get used to the feel of new equipment in your mouth. Lingual braces, like Incognito in Weybridge, tend to affect the tongue at first. Some people experience a little soreness. If this is the case for you, we can offer you some dental wax to put over your braces, which will protect the tongue until you get used to avoiding the area. For the same reason, some people notice a slight change in their speech when they have lingual braces. This should fade once you get used to the presence of your braces. On the plus side, the insides of your cheeks are unaffected by Incognito in Weybridge and they do not interfere with any activities like contact sports or playing an instrument.

Difficulty cleaning

All braces make oral hygiene more of a challenge. Suddenly you have new nooks and crannies to get to as well as many more places where food can get stuck. All you need to cope with this is a full complement of dental equipment including floss, mouthwash and interdental brushes. You then just need to allow yourself enough time to thoroughly clean your braces a few times a day.
