Incognito: the subtler way to straighter teeth

Incognito lingual braces are one of the subtlest teeth-straightening treatments around. At Weybridgedental practice Surrey Braces we have helped many people enjoy the benefits of straighter teeth thanks to these revolutionary braces.

straighter-teethA common conundrum faced by adult patients contacting our Weybridgedental practice is that they wish they had straighter teeth, whilst having no desire to wear obvious metal braces. Our team understands and empathises with these concerns, which is why we offer discreet orthodontic solutions.

Unlike some of the other discreet orthodontics products available, Incognito lingual braces can treat anything from mild to severe orthodontic problems. As well as straightening your teeth, they can correct problems with the bite – the way that your jaws come together – which can help to avoid teeth getting worn because of unevenly distributed biting and chewing forces.

How do I get Incognito braces?

Your first step on your journey to straighter teeth begins with a consultation here at our Weybridgedental practice. We will carefully examine your teeth, jaws, and bite, and will assess if Incognito is the most appropriate treatment option.

Incognito lingual braces have been specially designed with patient comfort in mind, with low-lying lingual brackets that are custom-made to fit your teeth. Thanks to the advanced 3D imaging software behind this treatment, your Weybridge orthodontist will be able to create a realistic image of the finished product, and predict your results and treatment time with a high degree of accuracy.

Are there any down sides to lingual braces?

As with all orthodontic treatments, it may take a few days to fully adjust to your Incognito braces. You will need to visit the hygienist regularly for advice on how to clean around your braces effectively, and if you play a brass or wind instrument may need to adapt your playing technique. However, all these issues are swiftly overcome in most cases.

Orthodontics: Not just for kids

A lot of people mistakenly believe orthodontics is just for children and teenagers. At our Weybridgedental practice, we are keen to stress the benefits of orthodontic treatment to patients of all ages – as well as to point out that orthodontics no longer has to equal obvious metal braces.

orthodonticsIncreasing numbers of adults are turning to discreet orthodontics to straighten their teeth. Straightening your teeth has numerous health benefits, not least the boost improving your smile can have on your self-esteem and your interactions with others.

Straighter teeth are healthier teeth, because they are easier to keep clean. There is less chance of food particles getting trapped in gaps between the teeth, reducing the chances of plaque build-up, gum disease, tooth decay, and even tooth loss. You will still need to brush and floss regularly and effectively, of course, and visit your dentist and hygienist every six months, but straightening your teeth can have a hugely positive impact on your dental health.

Ensuring that your bite is properly aligned also reduces strain on your teeth by ensuring the forces generated when you bite and chew your food are more evenly distributed.

At our Weybridgedental practice we understand that most adults will not want to wear obvious metal braces for long periods of time. These remain effective, and popular with teenagers who enjoy the ability to customise their braces, for example with the colours of their favourite football team, but they can be incompatible with a busy adult lifestyle.

Discreet orthodontics involves the use of tooth-coloured and clear devices to straighten your teeth in a subtler way. These may be fixed appliances (braces) or removable appliances (aligners). Each have their benefits, and the most suitable option will be discussed during your initial consultation at our Weybridge clinic. We also offer treatment with lingual braces, which are fitted to the back sides of the teeth.

Invisalign: orthodontic treatment that fits around your lifestyle

Invisalign clear aligners are one of the most popular alternatives to braces at Weybridge dental practice Surrey Braces. They can be used to correct a number of orthodontic conditions, whilst having minimal impact on your lifestyle.

invisalignThe growing demand for straighter teeth

More and more adults in the UK are seeking orthodontic treatment. Whether you missed out on treatment as a teenager, or you had treatment only to discover that your teeth have moved back to their original position, if the alignment of your teeth is making you unhappy we invite you to join us at our Weybridge dental practice for a consultation.

Straightening your teeth with products such as Invisalign has more than just cosmetic benefits. It is easier to keep your teeth clean if they are properly aligned, because there are fewer gaps in which food particles can get trapped and dental plaque can build up. Therefore, with regular visits to your dentist and a good oral care routine at home, straightening your teeth can reduce your chances of developing tooth decay or gum disease.

Why Invisalign?

Invisalign comprises a series of clear, removable aligners that are custom-made to fit snugly over your teeth, guiding them gently into an improved position.

Because they are clear, Invisalign treatment is invisible to the untrained eye in daily life, and because they are removable they have minimal impact on your lifestyle. You can remove them for short periods to clean and to brush/floss your teeth, as well as to eat and drink.

Invisalign consultations in Weybridge

When you come to our Weybridge practice for a consultation, we will assess if Invisalign is the best treatment for you. Impressions will be taken of your teeth, and we will use 3D imaging technology to show you what results to expect before starting treatment.

The number of aligners required will depend upon the amount and type of correction needed.

Incognito: the braces that are invisible in everyday life

Incognito braces are one of the most popular treatment options at Weybridge dental practice Surrey Braces. These metal appliances can be used to correct a wide number of orthodontic issues with one key difference to standard braces: because they are placed on the rear, or lingual, surfaces of the teeth, they will not be noticed in everyday life.

invisible-bracesOrthodontics for adults

It is now considered standard for children and teenagers in the UK to have orthodontic treatment as required. However, there is also an increase in demand among adult patients who want to straighten their teeth.

At our Weybridge dental practice we understand that many adults will balk at the thought of wearing standard metal braces, with treatment times of two years or more. However, we are also keen to stress that there are more than just aesthetic benefits to be gained from straightening your teeth.

With regular visits to your dentist and hygienist, straighter teeth are healthier teeth, because they are easier to keep clean, with fewer gaps in which particles of food can get trapped.

Incognito: a more discreet solution

Incognito lingual braces are just one of the products at our Weybridge dental practice that fall under the category of discreet orthodontics. This is one of the fastest-growing areas of modern dentistry as more and more adults are demanding treatments that combine maximum discretion with excellent results.

Designed with your comfort in mind

Incognito braces are designed to be more comfortable than traditional braces, too. They are customised to fit your teeth and your orthodontist at our Weybridge clinic will pay close attention to every detail to ensure your braces fit your teeth perfectly.

Because they can be used to correct all manner of orthodontic problems large and small, Incognito lingual braces afford more flexibility than some other, more cosmetically-focussed discreet orthodontic products.

Invisalign: the benefits of aligner treatment

Invisalign clear aligners are just one of the teeth-straightening treatment options available at our Weybridge orthodontic clinic. They offer a number of benefits in addition to straighter teeth, including making dental hygiene a breeze during treatment and having minimal impact on your lifestyle.

invisalign-weybridgeWhy you should consider orthodontic treatment

As well as causing embarrassment when smiling – which can have a negative impact on your self-esteem, personal and business relationships – crooked and misaligned teeth are also more difficult to clean, as food particles can get trapped in gaps, leading to a build-up of dental plaque, which increases your chances of developing gum disease or tooth decay. By using aligners such as Invisalign, or tooth-coloured braces, to straighten your teeth, you can help to improve your dental health.

Why choose Invisalign?

When you come to our Weybridge practice for a consultation with an orthodontist, they will undertake a careful examination of your teeth and gums to assess the type and amount of correction you require.

Invisalign can be used to correct a range of mild to moderate orthodontic problems. Treatment involves using a series of clear aligners that fit comfortably over your teeth to gently guide them into an improved position. The exact number of aligners required, and the length of your treatment, varies from case to case, and will be discussed by your orthodontist at the outset of treatment.

Because they are removable, Invisalign aligners have minimal impact on your lifestyle. Of course, you should still wear them most of the time to ensure swift and effective treatment, but you can take them out for short periods – helping to avoid the dental hygiene difficulties sometimes associated with braces.

Invisalign is just one of the discreet orthodontic options available at our Weybridge clinic, so even if they are not the best option in your case, we will find an appropriate subtle method of teeth straightening.

How Invisalign can straighten your teeth without impacting on your lifestyle

Invisalign is one of the most popular alternatives to traditional metal braces for patients who want straighter teeth. At Surrey Braces, Weybridge, it is just one of the many discreet orthodontics options available.

How Invisalign differs from standard braces

invisalignThe Invisalign system has been designed with both discretion and convenience at its heart. Many patients tell their dentist or orthodontist that they would love to straighten their teeth, but have no desire to wear standard braces because they are very obvious and not always compatible with a professional adult’s lifestyle.

At our Weybridge dental and orthodontic practice we fully empathise with this predicament, while also knowing the benefits orthodontic treatment can have on your self-esteem, dental and general health.

We believe that our patients should have access to the most reliable and effective solutions to their dental health concerns, and have found that Invisalign is an excellent option in many cases.

Invisalign is a series of clear aligners that fit comfortably over the teeth and gradually move them into an improved position. Unlike traditional braces, the aligners are removable, so you can take them out to eat and drink, to clean, and to brush your teeth. This, combined with their near invisibility, means that they have minimal impact on your lifestyle, as well as making maintaining good dental hygiene during treatment as easy as brushing your teeth, with no need for specialist techniques to clean around your braces.

How treatment works

We welcome patients from Weybridge and beyond for Invisalign treatment. If your orthodontist agrees this is the best option for you, they will take impressions of your teeth so that your bespoke set of aligners can be created.

You will be given a series of aligners, which you change every few weeks as your teeth move. The exact number of aligners will be discussed at your initial consultation.
