People have been getting braces for decades in order to correct crooked teeth, misaligned teeth, and even buckteeth. A perfect smile represents confidence and success in both your private life and professional life. With Incognito (Lingual braces), you can achieve that perfect smile in less time than traditional braces. They are also customized entirely for you. Just like no two people are alike, no two Incognito braces are alike.
Incognito Lingual Bracket System is a method of orthodontic treatment where the brackets and wires that produce the patient’s tooth realignment are attached to the backside of the teeth, as opposed to the front side of the teeth like traditional braces. Incognito braces are the only 100% customized fixed appliance system for invisible orthodontic treatment. Today’s newer Incognito braces are made out of gold which reduces the bulkiness and the uncomfortable feeling of traditional metal braces.
There are many advantages to Incognito Lingual braces over Invisalign and labial brackets. The main advantage is the cosmetic considerations. Lingual braces aren’t visible from the front which makes them an excellent option for patients who wish to avoid the look of traditional braces. Another advantage of these lingual braces is a reduction in treatment time. The original versions of these braces were bulky and not custom-made. However, Incognito braces are 100% customized which allows for extremely precise movements, making the overall treatment shorter.
Another option to Incognito braces is the incognito lite which only covers the 6 or 8 front teeth. The length of treatment for this type of braces is only 5 to 6 months, which is an ideal option for those who have had orthodontic treatment before, but have had some relapse due to not wearing a retainer.
The look of braces should no longer be deterrence for people who really need them. Oral health is a vital part of your overall health and better teeth and periodontal health. With the emergence of this new orthodontic technology, undetectable lingual braces are the most practical in terms of both convenience as well as looks.
