Articles Patients in Central London Never Have Their Orthodontic Work Spotted While Wearing Incognito Braces
Incognito braces – the invisible fixed brace
When people hear they need braces, they usually think of thick metal braces that buckle across the front of their teeth. However, fast becoming a popular solution to the aesthetic problem of braces is Incognito: a revolutionary technology that corrects gaps or uneven teeth while appearing virtually invisible when you smile.
What are Incognito braces?
Incognito braces are a type of lingual brace that is custom-made for the individual and affixed behind the teeth, so that they are comfortable, invisible and effective for every user. Indeed, the only potential discomfort occurs in the initial stages of wear, as you adjust to speaking whilst wearing Incognito braces. The materials used in these braces ensure that people with nickel allergies can still wear them, and there is no damaged caused to the surface of the teeth.
How are Incognito braces fitted?
Incognito braces are fitted in two appointments. In the first, you will have a consultation with a dental expert. If you are suitable for Incognito braces, a mould of your teeth will be made, which is then sent to a dental laboratory. Here, brackets for each individual tooth are created using CAD/CAM technology, and attached to a plastic applicator that ensures that the brackets remain aligned throughout application to the teeth. In the second appointment, the braces are cemented to the back of the teeth and an archwire is threaded through them. Like the brackets, the archwire has been designed especially for your teeth, and so will adjust your teeth to your ideal position. Check-ups are required in order to tighten the archwire, so that it continues to be effective.

Although the overall treatment time is usually between 15 and 28 months, improvements to the teeth can be seen very quickly with Incognito braces, so you won’t have to wait too long for your perfect smile.
