The 24/7 ‘behind the scene’ smile maker
Incognito Braces are completely hidden from view. These customised braces are placed on the back side of the teeth, effectively treating virtually any orthodontic issue whilst friends and colleagues are none the wiser.
How Does Incognito™ Work?
Impressions of your teeth are taken at the practice and then sent to the 3M laboratory. Here technicians use computer aided design and manufacturing (CAD/CAM), robotics and 3D printing technology to custom manufacture your brackets and wires, ensuring they meet your exact condition and deliver the confident smile you desire. Each bracket is cast in gold, which is highly polished for additional comfort, and is safe for anyone that has nickel allergies. The detailed precision of Incognito™ Hidden Braces also benefits comfort, minimises appointment frequency during treatment. The treatment time itself is generally shorter compared to generic brackets because they work on your teeth around the clock, unlike aligners that are removed when eating and cleaning teeth, often resulting in patients forgetting to put them back in.
We also have a Lite version of the braces, to treat the front teeth only.. Read more about these here
“I was delighted to discover them in place and my orthodontist worked miracles, tailor-making my treatment to enable me to smile with confidence. The best thing is that, after a few days of initial adaptation, you simply forget that the brace is there. My only regret is not having discovered the appliance sooner!”
Your Questions Answered
Are they painful to wear?
For the vast majority of people the procedure to get the braces placed on your teeth is painless. Tenderness when the teeth move is a common experience regardless of how you have your teeth straightened but it by no means prevents patients from seeing their Incognito™ treatment through.
How will my speech be affected?
If you feel you’re speaking differently, you’re probably noticing it more than anyone else. Speak more slowly until you feel comfortable with your new hidden braces. Most people adjust to speaking with braces within two weeks.
How are they kept clean?
Caring for your Incognito™ Hidden Braces varies little from your normal oral hygiene routine; brushing with an electric toothbrush is best and flossing regularly will do the trick. In addition at Confident Orthodontics, Taunton, we have specialists who can give your teeth a thorough clean during treatment should it be necessary.
When can I expect to see results?
Many people notice changes before their second appointment, however as each case is unique the length of time it takes to see results with Incognito™ Hidden Braces varies from person to person. It is worth noting that most people comment on the speed of the results, as being one of the main benefits of this treatment.
