If wearing braces is something you need, but you don’t want the world to know, there are a number of options available. Ace Dental has a range of options for you to choose from, including Incognito Hidden Lingual Braces.
These braces are often called hidden braces or incognito braces. They are fitted to the back of your teeth, instead of the front making them much more discreet.
The main advantage of Incognito Hidden Lingual Braces is also the most obvious one and that is that they are completely hidden from view. Your braces are tucked neatly behind your teeth so you can continue to smile without flashing unsightly hardware.
Having Lingual Braces secured to the back of your teeth is also very secure. They are not removable, which means you can’t misplace or lose them. They are fixed in place and periodically tightened by your dentist over several months until your teeth have been straightened.
The most obvious difference between these braces and traditional ones is that they are attached to the back of your teeth. Just like traditional braces, they use metal brackets and hardware and they will still need to be periodically adjusted by your dentist.
Your first visit to the dentist involves assessing you for suitability as a candidate for Incognito Braces. If you are a suitable candidate, your dentist will take an impression of your teeth and this impression is sent to the lab so your custom Incognito Braces can be made. They will then be adhered to the back of your teeth and you will be scheduled for regular follow up appointments every four to six weeks to make any necessary adjustments.
While the process of having Incognito Hidden Lingual Braces is relatively painless. They do take some getting used to. However, the attachment process is relatively painless.
The length of time you will need to wear your Incognito Hidden Lingual Braces will depend on the severity or the crookedness of your teeth. In most cases you can achieve perfectly straight teeth between one and a half to three years. As long as you practice good oral hygiene and visit your dentist regularly, you can be assured of a pleasing end result.
