Introducing Incognito: the braces that no-one can see

Incognito lingual braces are one of the most discreet orthodontic appliances around. At Surrey Braces in Weybridge we have used them to straighten scores of patients’ teeth successfully. If you are interested in teeth straightening treatment that nobody will be able to see, read on to discover how Incognito braces could be the perfect solution for you. . .

Most brace systems are attached to the front of your teeth, using gentle forces to guide them into a better position. Incognito braces are different: attached to the rear, or lingual, surfaces of your teeth, they work in exactly the same way as standard brace systems, with the added advantage that nobody will see them unless they are looking directly down into your mouth. As that’s likely to only be your dentist, hygienist, or orthodontist, friends, family, and colleagues won’t know you are undergoing orthodontic treatment unless you choose to tell them.

There are various lingual brace systems available, but Incognito are the best-known brand and the only lingual system we use at our Weybridge dental practice. They produce predictable results, and are comfortable to wear. It may take a few days to get completely used to the feel of them on the back of your teeth, and you may find your speech or ability to play a brass or woodwind instrument mildly affected for a short time, but most people get used to these braces very quickly.

Unlike some other cosmetically focussed orthodontic appliances available from our Weybridge dental practice, Incognito braces can be used for a wide range of orthodontic issues. Your treatment time will depend on the type and amount of correction that is required.

Teeth straightening always has health advantages, no matter what your age. These include improving your oral health by reducing the areas in which plaque can build up, thus cutting your risk of dental decay and gum disease, and also reducing the risk of overall health problems such as heart disease, which gum disease has been linked to.

Your dental hygienist will advise you how to clean round your braces.
