Lingual braces are a revolutionary orthodontic treatment, offering patients with moderate to severe misalignment and bite issues a highly aesthetic option to straighten their teeth. Read on to find out why lingual braces continue to grow in popularity.
Custom-created for your teeth
The Incognito system creates braces specifically to fit each and every patient’s teeth. We will take digital impressions of your teeth, which will inform the design of your braces and the brace hardware such as brackets and archwires. Lingual braces have a reputation for being more comfortable than their traditional metal counterparts.
Practically invisible to others
The most widely associated advantage of lingual braces is that they are virtually invisible, as they sit out of view on the tongue side of the teeth. The fact that they sit on the tongue side of the teeth also means that there is no risk of damage to the front tooth surface.
Misaligned teeth or bite issues can be a serious source of self consciousness and if left untreated, may necessitate more complex treatment later on. Orthodontic issues can also affect the shape and definition of your facial structure and treatment such as Incognito can help restore and improve this.
Ideal for customer-facing professionals
In the past, many adults put off having orthodontic treatment as the type and style of braces available were limited. Lingual braces allow adults to have treatment without their appearance changing and in a corporate role, first impressions and appearances can be important. With this in mind, those working in custom and customer-facing roles can be confident about their teeth throughout treatment.
Fixed brace treatment
An advantage of Incognito over treatments such as Invisalign is that you don’t need to worry about remembering to replace them every 2 weeks or to keep an eye on how long you’ve been wearing them each day (patients are required to wear Invisalign clear aligners for 22 hours each day). Incognito is a fixed brace treatment, so no effort is required on the part of the wearer throughout the orthodontic process.
