Having a straight smile is understandably very desirable but the process to get there can in many cases seem quite daunting. But not to fear, Incognito in Weybridge in a fantastic totally invisible brace system. Intrigued? Here’s everything you need to know about going incognito.
What is the incognito brace?
The Incognito brace is what we would traditionally call a lingual bracket system. It’s a system that can be used on all ages very simply because rather than the brackets being placed in front of the teeth, they are placed behind. Yep – no one will ever know you’re wearing them.
Incognito braces are made and designed to fit specially your teeth, and are made through using brand new technology enabling them to be shaped exactly to your teeth.
How do they work?
The brackets are joined together using archwires, which enable us to achieve the targeted results for your case. Incognito applies constant pressure that over time slowly straightens teeth, helping to minimise gaps, overcrowding, rotated teeth or problems with bite.
What are the benefits?
According to latest research reports, the number of UK adults seeking adult braces is on the rise every year. It goes without saying that there are obvious visual benefits to having braces fitted, which will leave you with a nicer smile than you may have had before, but there are actually far more benefits to getting braces than you may realise.
Firstly, there is the improvement of general dental wellbeing. Straightening wonky teeth will lead to total oral health and help fight against gum disease and further teeth problems. Simply put, straighter teeth are easier to clean – it’s much easier to get to those hard to reach areas, particularly the gum lines between teeth.
Secondly, we shouldn’t ignore how big an impact having a smile to be proud of can have on your confidence. Self-image and confidence have huge impacts on our daily lives without us always recognising it. Feeling happy and comfortable when talking to friends or colleagues can really settle those anxiety butterflies and is just one less thing to worry about daily.
Thirdly, you may actually find structural changes to your face – often patients once having treatment notice that their jaw, lips and chin all fall into better proportions, which is just another fantastic advantage to be considered.
