Many adults would love to have straighter teeth, but are understandably reluctant to wear normal braces. These are the type, worn by many teenagers, that are fitted to the fronts of your teeth. They are obtrusive and hard to ignore. As dentists, we can appreciate this is a problem for many people, which is why we offer many of our patients a range of discreet orthodontic alternatives, including Incognito lingual braces.
Unlike other types of hidden or invisible orthodontic treatments, Incognito lingual braces can be used to correct a wide range of orthodontic problems from mild misalignment and more serious orthodontic issues, through to problems with your bite that can result in uneven wear and tear on individual teeth due to the incorrect distribution of pressure on individual teeth.
What’s so different about Incognito braces?
Incognito braces are also known as lingual braces, and consist of a fully customised bracket system which is fitted to the backs of your teeth instead of the fronts. All parts of these braces are custom-made and are designed to deliver an effective, targeted result without the need for an intrusive mouth full of metal for months or years on end.
Using the latest 3D imaging technology here at our practice in Weybridge, Incognito lingual braces are made just for you. Your appliance is custom-designed, and you will be able to see what you can expect your teeth to look like after the treatment from the very start of the process. As with any orthodontic treatment, you will find wearing a brace a little strange for a while. Sometimes it can take a bit longer to become accustomed to wearing a lingual brace than a standard type, but after a few days you will almost forget that you are wearing them.
As with any orthodontic treatment, it is essential that you pay particular attention to your dental hygiene and you should speak to your hygienist about a bespoke cleaning routine during your treatment. If you are looking for a way to achieve straighter teeth, but would prefer to keep the secret of your smile to yourself, you may find that lingual braces are the solution that you have been looking for, you may just find yourself going Incognito in Weybridge.
