Incognito: the braces that most people can’t see

Incognito braces provide maximum discretion for patients undergoing orthodontic treatment. They are one of the most popular brace systems at Weybridge dental centre Surrey Braces, and can be used to correct a wide range of orthodontic issues.

Teeth straightening treatment is important not just for aesthetic reasons, but also to help preserve your dental health and, ultimately, prevent tooth loss. It is easier to keep well-aligned teeth clean because there are fewer gaps in which plaque can build up. So whatever your age, at our Weybridge dental practice we are always keen to stress that it is never too late to reap the benefits of straightening your teeth. Incognito braces are one of subtlest ways in which to achieve this.

Just the mention of the word “braces” may be enough to give you the shivers, as the majority of people still picture traditional metal fixed appliances that remain popular with teenagers, but not so much with adults.

Incognito braces are different. They are lingual braces, which means they are fitted to the rear (lingual) surfaces of your teeth. This makes them invisible in everyday life, so nobody need know that you are undergoing treatment unless you choose to tell them.

Whilst Incognito lingual braces are just one of the multitude of subtle teeth straightening options available from Weybridge dental practice Surrey Braces, they are the ones that can correct the widest array of orthodontic problems.

Many discreet brace and aligner systems can only correct mild to moderate alignment issues with the teeth. Incognito braces can be used to treat more complex complaints, including issues with your bite (how your jaws meet each other). Your braces are completely customised to the shape of your teeth and to your dental situation. Your orthodontist will build in a unique prescription to get the results that you want.

The length of time that you will have to wear your Incognito lingual braces for will depend on the type and amount of correction that is needed, and you will be advised of this by your orthodontist when you come into Surrey Braces, Weybridge, for a consultation.
