A well-hidden way to straighten your teeth

Incognito in WeybridgeDiscreet realignment

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. The potential social discomfort that often puts people off having their teeth straightened is thus minimised.

Incognito in Weybridge is effective for a variety of conditions. You might have a crowded smile, a misaligned bite, or teeth that are generally crooked. Book yourself in for a consultation and we’ll tell you how Incognito in Weybridge can make your teeth more appealing.

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.

Incognito lingual braces

For those of you out there who have been looking for a hidden solution to a crooked smile, your search can stop here in Weybridge. Incognito lingual braces comprise of individually made gold brackets. They are made to be a perfect fit to the inside of your teeth and are fitted behind your teeth. OK, at this point you could argue that they are not completely invisible, but they are totally hidden from view. It is a hard job to spot Incognito braces once they have been fitted in your mouth.

What is the treatment time?

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.

Discreet dental realignment

Contemporary dentists can ensure your braces stay discreet. At Weybridge Orthodontics, we use innovative dental appliances that remain hidden in your mouth while they improve your dental positioning. If you’re hoping to quietly improve the position of your teeth in Weybridge, Incognito might be the ideal treatment.

Incognito-in-WeybridgeIncognito in Weybridge

This modern set of wire-and-bracket braces has a user-friendly feature: we attach it to the backs of your teeth. This minimises the potential embarrassment caused by traditional, highly visible braces affixed to the front of your teeth. We can use Incognito in Weybridge to improve a wide variety of conditions, including crowded smiles, crooked teeth, and misaligned bites.

After treatment, you’ll notice an obvious cosmetic enhancement. This can lead to increased social confidence. Plus, with straighter teeth your mouth will be easier to keep clean. This is because there’ll be fewer awkward spaces in your mouth where bacteria can hide from your toothbrush. Your teeth will all be working together more effectively.

A process in several stages

To assess whether Incognito in Weybridge is the right way forward for you, we’ll invite you into our dental practice for an in-depth consultation. We’ll take some detailed pictures of your teeth and produce a finely-honed treatment plan.

Once we’ve attached your braces to the backs of your teeth, you might need 12 months or longer for the treatment to achieve its target. Complex cases tend to need longer. We’ll always let you know how long your treatment will take before it begins.

Discreet experience

Your braces will remain inconspicuous as they gently pressure your teeth into better, straighter positions. This helps you to avoid awkward questions and double-takes from strangers and acquaintances at social occasions. The reduced visibility of Incognito in Weybridge is one reason why it’s popular with adults who have customer-facing work roles.

You’ll need a bit of patience to complete this contemporary realignment treatment. Once the braces come off, you might need to wear a retainer at night, so the teeth become secure in their new positions. After it’s all over, you’ll be able to enjoy your newly-repositioned teeth for many years.

Tucked away out of sight

There’s very little chance that braces are ever going to be the next must-have designer accessory for the glamourous; they’ve just got too much history and association with being a gawky teen. But, if you are an adult who’s got some complex problems with your teeth that you need to sort, there is a way to do this without having the full railway junction look on view for a couple of years.

Incognito in WeybridgeIf you live in or around Weybridge, Incognito braces from us at Weybridge Orthodontics are a brilliant solution to your problems.

Most braces for adults are designed to be as discreet as possible. The ones that are fixed to the front of the teeth have smaller brackets and finer wires. There are also ones that look like mouth guards that snap on over the teeth. Both kinds of discreet braces work really well, as long as you only have mild to moderate alignment issues. They work best on the front teeth only. Anything more than that and you are looking at getting more complex braces, and that’s where Incognito in Weybridge comes in.

These braces work like traditional bracket and wire braces, but with a big difference: they are fixed to the inner surfaces of the teeth rather than the outward-facing surfaces. In the dental profession, we refer to them as lingual (tongue-side) braces.

Getting Incognito in Weybridge

If we think Incognito are the right braces for you, we will take detailed measurements of the inner surfaces of all your teeth. These measurements are sent away to a lab where a bracket is custom-made from gold alloy to fit each one of your teeth. This takes about three weeks, so a bit of waiting time is involved.

When the braces come back, we fix them onto the insides of your teeth. Having the braces on the inner-facing surfaces can take a bit of getting used to, but you will adjust pretty easily.

The length of treatment time will depend on the complexity of your alignment issues, but the great news is that, unless you choose to tell, no one will know you are having your teeth straightened. Incognito in Weybridge makes straightening seem like magic.

What you need to know about Incognito in Weybridge

There’s no denying that, in today’s world, looks are important. If you regularly have to face the public for your job, you have a busy social life or you simply enjoy looking good, then you might be reluctant to improve your smile with braces. At Weybridge Orthodontics, we offer you options when it comes to teeth straightening that mean that you do not have to compromise your look.

Incognito-in-WeybridgeOne of the options we offer is Incognito. In Weybridge, at our clinic, we can check if your teeth alignment issue is suitable for this type of braces.

Incognito are lingual braces. This means that they are attached to the backs of your teeth. Once in place, they cannot be seen from the outside. Incognito braces work in the same way as traditional braces and take roughly the same amount of time to work so you do not have to sacrifice efficiency in order to straighten your teeth discreetly.

How are Incognito in Weybridge fitted?

Incognito are fitted in much the same way as traditional braces. Brackets are fixed to the backs of the teeth and then a wire is threaded through them. It can feel a little awkward during the actual fitting process because the dentist at Weybridge Orthodontics will be working on the backs of your teeth but the whole process should take no more than an hour or two.

How do they feel in the mouth?

Once you have your Incognito in Weybridge fitted, they are relatively low profile against the teeth so you should get used to the feel of them in your mouth relatively quickly. Like all braces, they can be a little uncomfortable at first. This should settle down within the first few weeks. In the meantime, you can mitigate any discomfort with mild painkillers. Your dentist at Weybridge Orthodontics will advise you on what is normal. We also see you for regular check-ups to ensure that you are happy and comfortable.

Some patients find that their speech is temporarily affected when they get Incognito. This fades quickly as the tongue gets used to the presence of new equipment in the mouth. You can talk to your dentist at Weybridge Orthodontics if you are concerned.

Get in line with Incognito

Here at Weybridge Orthodontics, we strive to fulfil everyone’s needs and preferences when it comes to treatment options. A great option for patients looking to adjust their teeth without the appearance of ugly traditional braces, is Incognito. In Weybridge, Incognito braces are fixed securely behind your teeth, making them completely hidden from view so you can go about your day-to-day routines without having to feel conscious about your teeth.

Incognito in WeybridgeHave you been considering braces here in Weybridge? Incognito lingual braces can be used to treat all the dental alignment issues that traditional braces can treat and should achieve the same great results. The braces hide discreetly on the back of your teeth, not on the front like conventional ‘train tracks’, making them a great choice for anyone wishing to straighten their teeth without drawing attention to the fact that they are having treatment done. Whether your alignment issues are small or more complex, it is likely that you will be able to wear Incognito braces. Of course, the braces are custom-made for each patient to maximise comfort and ensure great results.

Do I really need to straighten my wonky teeth?

Of course, you don’t have to, however we do recommend it as straight teeth are generally easier to clean. Your oral health will be better when your teeth are in line. Correcting a misaligned bite means you will be able to chew your food properly, eliminating uneven wear or exaggerated wear in points where some teeth are doing all the work. You have less chance of plaque building up between clean straight teeth so your risk of gum disease, tooth loss and cavities will be reduced. Aside from the physical health benefits, there are psychological rewards. If you feel conscious of your wonky teeth, you will probably find that your confidence can be greatly improved when your teeth have been straightened.

If you decide to choose Incognito braces in Weybridge, we will use 3D-imaging technology to draw up a complete assessment of your teeth. Using this technology, we can give you an idea of the finished result and predict a relatively accurate treatment time frame.

Braces behind the scenes

Here at Weybridge Orthodontics, we find that many of our adult patients would love to get their teeth straightened, but they are not so keen on the idea of wearing braces that are going to invite stares and comments. After all, they are not teenagers, and are often in responsible, public-facing jobs that do not invite personal comments.

The dentistry world is well aware of this and over the last couple of decades has come up with some ingenious ways to make braces more discreet, and sometimes even pretty much invisible. However, most of these are only good for mild to moderate misalignments and will not work on severe or complex cases.

Incognito in WeybridgeHowever, in Weybridge, Incognito braces are a great solution to the problem of wanting discreet straightening for complex misalignments here at Weybridge Orthodontics, a dental clinic that focusses on teeth straightening.
