Need braces but don’t like showing them off? Invisible braces, also known as Incognito™ Lingual Braces are the best orthodontic treatments for you.
Invisible braces are a great alternative to regular metal braces. As its name suggests, these are hidden behind your teeth so you can smile freely and confidently without showing off your metal treatments.
Our specialist orthodontists are among the best in giving you the proper patient care until you get your most desired smile without feeling self-conscious.
Invisible or Incognito™ braces offer a lot of benefits for its patients. Here are some of the reasons why these lingual braces are among the most preferred orthodontic treatments:
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.
Lingual or Incognito™ braces can treat a wide range of teeth alignment problems which include:
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:
