Incognito Braces: A Beginner’s Guide

If you’re unhappy with your current teeth alignment situation, but even more unhappy about the idea of traditional metal braces; the Incognito system might be ideal for you.

Incognito is an innovative teeth realignment system that is virtually invisible. This leading lingual brace system works to straighten your teeth from the inside of your mouth, not the outside.

How do Incognito braces work?

Incognito braces are attached to the inner, or lingual, side of your teeth. Each bracket is custom made to comfortably fit an individual tooth and is made from cast gold.

Lingual braces work using the same general principle as traditional metal braces. Each tooth is fitted with a bracket which are then all connected up with a wire. Over the treatment period the wire is gradually tightened in order to bring the teeth into alignment.

Though this basic principle is the same, Incognito braces are considered to be one of the most comfortable options on the orthodontic market thanks to their custom fit.

What are the benefits?

There are a wide range of benefits to Incognito braces:

  • They’re invisible
  • The custom fit means that they’re more comfortable than traditional options
  • They can be worn by any age group
  • They are effective for all types of malocclusions, no matter the severity
  • Treatment time with lingual braces is up to 30% faster
  • You don’t have to remember to take your brace in or out, and it can’t get lost

What are the downsides?

The only real downside of Incognito braces is that they are more expensive than traditional braces. If you are on a budget, this might not be the option for you. However, if you’re in a position to spend a bit more in order to improve the experience of undergoing teeth realignment, we don’t think you’ll regret it!
