Frequently Asked Questions

Invisible braces work by exerting pressure on your teeth which causes your periodontal membrane to stretch and compress. When this membrane is stretched, your teeth become loose and cause new bone to form around the teeth to support its new alignment. Lingual braces move the teeth by pulling instead of the pushing motion of traditional braces. You need to visit any of our specialist orthodontists to have your invisible braces adjusted at least every 6-8 weeks.

  1. Your specialist orthodontist will begin by examining your dental condition and take impressions of your teeth.
  2. The impressions and the prescription will be sent to Incognito™ Appliance System laboratories for the creation of your custom-made lingual braces.
  3. A professional lab technician will custom-made your invisible braces through computer-aided design, 3D printing technology and robotics. Each gold bracket is designed with absolute precision and well-polished so it doesn’t hurt your gums.
  4. Your orthodontist will place the braces on you to start your treatment.

Lingual or Incognito™ braces can treat a wide range of teeth alignment problems which include:

  • Overbite – Your upper front teeth overlap with your lower front teeth.
  • Underbite – Your lower front teeth are protruding when you close your mouth.
  • Crossbite - Some of your upper teeth are overlapping inside your lower teeth when you close your mouth.
  • Gap Teeth – You have an extra space between two or more of your teeth.
  • Open Bite - Your upper and lower teeth don't touch each other when your mouth is closed.
  • Crowded Teeth – You do not have enough room in your jaw for your teeth to fit normally. Teeth can crowd together, overlap and twist, or sometimes get pushed to the front or the back.

The process of getting invisible or lingual braces is not painful. When the treatments are in place, some patients experience gum or tooth soreness which is normal and indicative of the effectiveness of the braces. The soreness, which should only last a few days, is due to the movement of the teeth. Should there be any unbearable pain when your Incognito™ braces are in place, you should immediately consult with your orthodontist.

Incognito™ Lingual Braces can be worn by anyone: kids, adolescents, and adults as a long as they have healthy periodontal tissues. Gums should be free from periodontal disease or any swelling or bleeding to become a candidate for invisible or inside braces.

The length of the treatment varies on your dental condition. With Incognito™ Lingual Braces, custom-made brackets, as well as precise bracket and wire positioning, your teeth will move to your desired alignment fast and efficiently.

Most patients who use invisible braces do not experience any difficulty in speech. Some patients note a minor speech impediment during the adjustment period (a few weeks from the time the treatments are placed). If such is the case for you, your orthodontist will let you do some speech exercises so you can speak clearly in no time.

The full cost of the treatment of invisible or inside braces will depend on your existing dental condition and the length of the whole treatment plan. You will get the exact cost from our orthodontist.

Like other orthodontic treatments, lingual braces need proper maintenance through oral care and hygiene to keep your treatments and teeth in great shape. Follow some of these tips:

  • Use a soft-bristled toothbrush to clean your teeth surface and the hidden part of your teeth where your braces are located.
  • Floss at least twice a day. Make sure that you thread the string beneath the main wire to avoid the floss getting stuck in your braces. There are dental floss made especially for patients with orthodontic treatments.
  • If you have the means, you can use a water flosser to get rid of any food stuck around your braces.
  • Have regular checkups with your orthodontist to check your progress and have your lingual braces adjusted periodically.
