Articles Patients From London Go Incognito With An Innovative New Braces System
Want the advantages of a fixed brace without anyone being the wiser? Thankfully with Incognito Lingual Braces this is possible.
What are Incognito Lingual Braces?
To grasp what is unique about this brace system we will have to take a brief detour into some etymology: Lingual is the Latin for ‘close to the tongue’ and this is precisely what is so special about lingual braces – they are positioned on the inside of your teeth, thus closer to the tongue and out of sight from anybody else!
The benefits of Incognito treatment
Well, as one part of their name says quite bluntly, one advantage is that they are ‘incognito’. Braces, partly as a result of cultural prejudices developed at adolescence, have a bit of a bad reputation in terms of their appearance. Even if you think this reputation is unjustified, it is understandable that it may be of some concern. Thankfully, flipping the braces to the inside of the teeth removes such concerns. Having braces back there might sound uncomfortable, but thankfully the materials used in producing Incognito Lingual braces reduces potential friction and attempts to maximise comfort. The materials used also meant that anyone suffering from a nickel allergy can still use the treatment!
Fixed vs. Removable
Other invisible treatments are available on the market, but most of these are removable aligners. One benefit of Lingual braces is that they are not removable. This may not sound like much of an advantage, but it is if you factor in human error: Most aligners need to be worn for 20 hours a day and forgetting to do so can seriously disrupt treatment. With fixed braces, you need not worry about forgetting.
Are they awkward to fit?
Not at all, they merely require two trips to the dentist. The only awkward thing really is how few surgeries fit them. Thankfully, Harley Street Dental Studio in London does! If you are eligible for standard treatment with braces then you should be suitable for treatment with Incognito Lingual Braces, so why not call us for a consultation?
