Incognito braces fit on the back surface of the teeth, where the tongue lies, making them invisible. They are a popular teeth straightening method, and many people opt for them, regardless of the high cost.
If you intend to attend a special occasion or wedding, wearing traditional metal braces may not be an option. Adults who want to straighten their teeth but still maintain a professional look may prefer incognito braces.
Incognito braces are custom-made to fit the teeth and ensure full comfort. The custom-made braces help correct orthodontic problems using a wire arch and special ligation system that gently moves the teeth with low friction. The brackets are thin, made with gold alloy, which makes them less likely to affect speech and more durable.
The aligners are fitted behind the teeth, making them invisible, so you don’t need to feel insecure or uncomfortable during treatment.
You can floss and brush straightened teeth easily. This reduced the risk of plaque accumulation, cavities and tooth decay.
The braces are comfortable, even while eating and drinking. It can take 2-3 weeks before the brace starts to feel comfortable.
The treatment time can vary depending on case complexity and on average takes about two years, but you will notice changes within the first few months.
Incognito braces treatment starts with a consultation at an orthodontist’s practice. They will conduct a comprehensive dental examination before recommending treatment. The orthodontist will take your teeth scan to make customised braces in the lab.
When the braces are ready, the orthodontist will use a special cement to fit them on the teeth. This process isn’t painful and can take up to two hours. While you may find it uncomfortable, the orthodontist will ensure you are relaxed and comfortable.
You will visit the orthodontist every 6 – 8 weeks to adjust the braces and monitor the treatment. When your braces come off, you will get a retainer fitted in your teeth to prevent them from moving out of their new position.
Treatment with Incognito braces takes about 18 – 24 months.
