What is Incognito?
Incognito in Weybridge is a popular treatment that people opt for. It is an innovative way to straighten your teeth effectively. Incognito in Weybridge is considered to be a modern, invisible alternative to conventional braces and is suitable for teenagers and adults of all ages. The reason why people love Incognito in Weybridge so much is that they are practically invisible. The reason for this is that they get attached to the inside of the teeth and therefore are not visible to anyone else. They are lingual braces and are very similar to conventional braces.
How does Incognito work?
Incognito braces are made up of small metal brackets and wires similar to conventional braces. One of the major differences between conventional braces and lingual braces is that lingual braces get attached to the back of the teeth rather than the front of the teeth. This is a major advantage as it means that they cannot be seen by others and therefore if you feel uncomfortable with people knowing that you have braces they won’t need to know with incognito!
The brackets and the wires work together to put continuous gentle pressure on the teeth and to straighten them and fill any gaps over a period of time. It will also help to fix any overbite, rotated teeth or overcrowding. Once the treatment has finished the teeth will continue to push together gradually.
What is the procedure?
At the initial consultation, once you have confirmed that you wish to have incognito braces, your dentist will take impressions of your teeth and will ensure that the wires are custom made and fit to your size. This is to ensure that they are comfortable and do not cause any pain or discomfort. You will then be contacted for your next appointment where the brackets and wires will be attached to the back of your teeth. This will be done in one day. It is best that you take painkillers to avoid any pain and discomfort.
