Articles The Science Behind Secret Straightening
Incognito lingual braces are fixed braces, so how can they be worn secretly? The secret to their discreet wear is the fact that not only are the brackets smaller and wiring thinner, the brackets are actually placed on the back of the teeth. Traditional fixed braces, even when tooth coloured may be visible close up, but Incognito lingual braces are so small and hidden, you can wear them in confidence that no one will know you are having orthodontic treatment.
Benefits of Incognito lingual braces
You may think that as the braces are applied to the back of the teeth this may cause pain and discomfort to the tongue. Whilst there is a short period of getting used to the brackets and wiring, the brackets are so fine that they are much more comfortable than a more bulky traditional fixed brace.
Depending on the issues at hand, treatment time can vary from one to two years, but again it depends on each patients needs.
Are Incognito braces for me?
If you would benefit from traditional fixed braces, then you should also benefit from Incognito lingual braces. They work on a number of issues, from mild to more serious orthodontic problems. Whilst traditional fixed braces can cause oral health issues, where cleaning and flossing becomes compromised, Incognito lingual braces are so small and cover less of the tooth that it should be much easier to keep on top of your oral health. We work closely with our patients seeking orthodontic treatment to give them help and advice when it comes to maintaining oral health whilst wearing braces.
Lingual braces are also popular with people in the media such as Hollywood celebrities and pop stars who want a straighter smile in secret. If you would like more information about Incognito lingual braces, don’t hesitate to get in touch with us!
