What is a lingual brace?

Lingual braces such as Incognito use the tried and tested techniques of orthodontics to correct a wide range of tooth alignment problems. Braces comprise brackets and wires that gently move your teeth into a new, more desirable position.

The major difference is that lingual braces are attached to the rear surfaces of your teeth, meaning that nobody will see them, and nobody need know that you are having orthodontic treatment, unless you choose to tell them.

Who can have treatment with Incognito braces?

Incognito lingual braces are suitable for all age groups – children, adults and teenagers. They are only available to private patients.

Are they just for cosmetic purposes?

No. Incognito braces can treat a huge range of orthodontic problems, from mild issues to more complex cases. To find out if this is the best treatment option in your case, book a consultation at our Weybridge orthodontic practice.

How long does treatment take?

Your treatment time will depend upon your individual needs, because each patient’s case is different. However, by using advanced technology and customised brackets, your teeth will be moved in a highly efficient manner.

How will my lifestyle be affected?

Again, every patient’s experience will be different. A small number of patients experience a minor speech impediment for the first couple of weeks, which will improve over time. If you play a wind or brass instrument you may need to adapt your technique slightly whilst wearing braces.
