Incognito Lingual is a highly effective corrective orthodontic treatment utilising fully invisible braces to gently move your teeth into alignment. This is one of the most popular orthodontic procedures carried out in London. Braces are attached to the back of patients’ teeth, which makes the Lingual Braces completely invisible.
Incognito Lingual treatment makes it the ideal solution, allowing patients to go through the entire treatment course without the braces being noticed at all. The results of our personalised Lingual treatments have delighted many in the past, and continue to offer our patients beautiful, winning smiles.
Orthodontic procedures that involve the use of brackets have been shown to offer more successful results. Incognito Lingual treatment with its’ hidden braces can effectively tackle problems of malocclusion and improve your bite and the appearance of your teeth.
Shortly after your procedure, you will begin to see noticeable changes and signs of progress, as a result of the advanced technology that enables the patient to achieve faster results. Correcting the alignment of your teeth and successfully achieving the optimum positioning will help in maintaining long lasting dental health, as well as providing you with a new confident smile.
The use of new materials and high-end technology in the braces of this innovative orthodontic treatment has provided many benefits that promise to enhance results and patients’ experience. Nickel brackets in conventional orthodontic treatment can cause allergic reactions. Incognito Braces use gold alloy to overcome this problem.
Each appliance is 100% personalised to every patient’s unique specifications. This not only improves effectiveness and precision, but also provides extra comfort, and reduces the chance of irritation. In the free consultation session provided to our patients, a silicon impression of your teeth will be taken and used as a template from which your made-to-measure braces will be manufactured in a complex laboratory process. The custom-made lingual braces will bond precisely to the inside of the teeth, connected to the arch wire behind the teeth. The arch wire provides extra support for the braces to allow them to gently move your teeth to the desired alignment.
Incognito braces are suitable for all age groups, children, adolescents and adults who want to correct their tooth position. Your orthodontist will be glad to provide you with more information. In most cases people opt for Incognito braces as they do not want their braces to be visible for professional or aesthetic reasons.
Our braces have a unique design and fit. The bracket bases are contoured to hug the lingual (tongue-side) surfaces of your teeth for optimal comfort, fit and performance. They have a very low profile so they are less likely to interfere with your speech. Our special custom made archwires are precisely programmed with your unique prescription to ensure efficient, effective tooth movement.
The Incognito braces are 100% customised to deliver specific results for each patient. Your orthodontist determines your treatment plan and then your braces are custom made just for you. We use the latest CAD/CAM, rapid prototyping and robotic technologies to fabricate your braces with your unique treatment prescription built in.
Treatment time varies by each individual patient and the amount of work required to align the teeth. Due to the advanced technology in the customised brackets, precise bracket placement and precision bent wires, your teeth will move in the most efficient manner possible.
As with traditional braces, every person reacts differently. However, most patients do not experience a speech impediment. Those patients who do experience a minor speech impediment during the first couple of weeks find that this improves with each passing day. Your orthodontist can also provide you with speech exercises.
For the first two weeks after your braces are put on, your tongue, lips and teeth may be sore, just as they would be with traditional braces. You will be given instructions from your orthodontist as to how to care for and adjust to your new braces.
This will depend on your individual treatment needs and length of treatment required, but treatments can start from just £2,500 per arch. Please speak to your local Incognito orthodontist to arrange a consultation where this will be discussed.
