A beautiful, flawless smile is enough motivation for some people to undertake orthodontics. However, quite a few people fail to realise that they do not need to have regular braces to achieve a beautiful smile – thanks to Incognito.

Incognito in Weybridge is a special type of braces, which are attached to the back of the teeth. Also known as lingual braces, Incognito braces are available in many dental practices in Surrey, including Weybridge Orthodontics.

What’s the treatment process?

The orthodontist will start by making an impression of the patient’s teeth. Alternatively, high-quality digital images can be used. Incognito brackets and wires are customised with the aid of 3D printing technology and all to suit each patient’s exact treatment needs. The brackets that are fixed behind each individual tooth are precision-made and highly polished for comfort and to avoid tongue-related accidents.

Once the braces are ready, the orthodontist will carefully glue them behind the teeth one by one, ensuring that they are placed in the correct position. Then, they will connect them with a wire that will be initiating all these forces required for them to gradually move.

Living with Incognito

Getting used to Incognito in Weybridge is not as hard as it sounds. Patients may experience a little discomfort in the beginning, but most people will be able to adjust to them in less than 2 weeks. The orthodontist will provide helpful information on how to take good care of them. Some people may experience speech problems due to the position of the braces behind the tongue, but this should go away very soon.

Why choose Incognito in Weybridge?

Incognito braces are very discreet but powerful at the same time. Unlike other discreet brace systems, they can address a wider variety of problems, including seriously misaligned teeth. Moreover, unlike traditional braces, they are customised to the unique shape of each patient’s teeth allowing extra comfort and convenience. The custom brackets and mechanically bent wires come together to powerfully straighten the teeth with no discomfort at all.

Overall, lingual braces are ideal for image-conscious teenagers and adults as well as professional athletes, musicians and other professionals whose job requires a flawless appearance.
