Incognito™ lingual braces from 3M provide a new and practically invisible way to change your smile. Because Incognito™ braces are placed on the back-side of your teeth they are completely hidden from view. No one will know that you are wearing braces – unless you tell them!
The word “lingual” refers to the surface at the back of the teeth, and that’s where Incognito™ Braces are placed. They are the only behind-the-teeth braces that are 100% customised to the shape of your teeth and to your individual orthodontic treatment.
During orthodontic treatment, we want to ensure our patients are as comfortable and pain free as possible. For this reason, each bracket is custom made to fit each patient. This ensures that the brackets are designed to fit seamlessly amongst your teeth, patients should not find lingual braces to be uncomfortable. Some patients do find some slight discomfort immediately after treatment, however this is quickly nullified as the tongue adjusts to the orthodontic device.
Much the same as traditional braces, Incognito™ lingual braces are able to provide a solution to a range of orthodontic problems. With the use of lingual braces, issues such as gaps, tooth crowding and misaligned bites can all be corrected.
Bonded to the back of patients’ teeth, they remain almost entirely hidden and able to solve a range of orthodontic issues. Lingual braces offer a great option for patients of all ages. Often popular for adults working in professional and business settings due to their discrete nature, lingual™ braces are able to treat patients who may be self-conscious about the appearance of traditional braces. This inconspicuous option allows these professionals to achieve optimal oral health and the amazing smile they deserve whilst maintaining a professional personal image.
Incognito™ braces are fully customised to fit almost any smile or oral condition. Appropriate for use in majority of cases to straighten teeth and correct bite, Incognito™ braces are able to solve the more complex cases which are not able to be treated through the use of clear aligners.
The Incognito™ system is fully adaptable and is able to be applied to just the front six teeth instead of the entire arch in less complex cases. This can be done without the visual appearance of any attachments and without the need for regularly removing and replacing aligners.
During your orthodontic consultation, our highly qualified orthodontists will be able identify if you are a suitable candidate for incognito™ braces.
