Incognito Braces: Are They a Good Fit for You?

Posted on 2/28/2019 by Dr. Daniel Sawrie
Incognito Braces: Are They a Good Fit for You?Are you looking for an effective and non-noticeable way to straighten your teeth? Perhaps you are older, established in life and your career and the idea of traditional metal braces just does not fit the persona you have built for yourself. Or maybe the idea and maintenance behind traditional braces or clear aligners do not suit your particular lifestyle.

Whatever the reason, with "Incognito braces" you do not have to worry about how you will look with the braces or having to the bothersome cleaning habits that go along with traditional metal braces or clear aligners in order to keep them looking presentable because the best part about Incognito technology is that your braces will be 100 percent unnoticeable. That's right, no one will know that they are there unless you tell them. Hence the name "incognito."

How does it Work?
With Incognito braces, or lingual braces, the metal brackets are just as effective and efficient as traditional braces the difference lying in where they are placed. Traditional braces are cemented to the front of the teeth-visible to all, whereas lingual braces are custom fitted and cemented to the back of the teeth-visible to no one. Upon determining if lingual braces are right for you, your orthodontist will take an impression of your teeth or which the brackets will be fabricated in junction with using computerized technology. The brackets will then be attached to the back of the teeth and you are well on your way!

Why Incognito or Lingual Braces?

The benefits of Incognito braces truly are clear and we mean that in the puniest possible way. However, to spell it out, here are the major advantages of choosing lingual braces over traditional:

•  Convenience- Incognito (or rather lingual) braces are convenient in that they work 24/7 and you never have to take them out in order to eat or practice proper everyday oral hygiene. They remain in place, doing their job effectively and are one less thing for you to think about.
•  Aesthetics- Incognito (lingual) braces are a great confidence booster for those weary of the highly visible traditional mouth full of metal. You can keep your same beautiful smile and no one will even know that you are hard at work making an effort to make it even more beautiful!
•  Comfort- Because this type of brace is custom fabricated to fit each individual patients unique tooth structure they therefore offer a much more comfortable fit than traditional braces.

No matter your age, if you are looking to improve your smile in a nonchalant manner ask your orthodontist today if lingual braces are right for you.
