Articles Innovative Lingual Braces For Patients In The City Of London
If you still conjure up images of metal train-tracks when you think about braces, it’s time to think again! At Harley Street Dental Studio, we offer the latest innovations in Orthodontics, including the incredible Incognito lingual brace system.
What are lingual braces?
Lingual braces are fixed braces, which are attached to the back of the teeth to provide a truly discreet alternative to traditional braces. Lingual braces are made from brackets and wires, but unlike traditional metal braces, they are put on to the lingual side of the teeth, which means that they are completely invisible when you smile. The major benefit of lingual braces is that they do interfere with your image in any way during the treatment process; this is a very common concern for patients, especially adult patients.
Incognito is one of the world’s leading lingual brace systems; the braces are delicate and sleek and they are made from gold, which means that they are suitable for patients with nickel allergies. Incognito braces are bespoke and they are tailor made for the individual for optimum comfort. The braces are much lighter and finer than conventional fixed braces and they work very quickly. The braces work by generating forces, which guide the teeth into position and as treatment time is shorter than traditional braces, fewer visits to the dentist are required.
Incognito braces are suitable for patients of all ages and they are very popular with adult patients, who love the fact that they can get a beautiful, straight smile without anyone else even being able to tell that they are wearing braces. Lingual braces are suitable for patients with orthodontic issues including crooked and crowded teeth, spaces between the teeth and problems with the bite and they can be fixed to the upper and lower arches.
How long does treatment take?
Treatment time depends heavily on the exact nature of the patient’s orthodontic needs; in minor and moderate cases, treatment may be complete within 12-18 months, while complex cases, which require a greater amount of movement, may take up to 24 months.
