Lingual braces are fitted to the tongue side of your teeth. This makes them virtually invisible, giving them their other name - hidden braces. At the Straight Smile Centre™, we use the Incognito™ brand of lingual braces, which come with a number of benefits:
Custom designed to ensure comfort during treatment
Discreet and appropriate for patients of all ages
Appropriate to treat a number of orthodontic issues
Incognito™ lingual braces provide a new and practically invisible way to change your smile. Because they are placed on the back surface of your teeth, they are completely hidden from view so no-one will know you are wearing them.
How do lingual braces work?
The word “lingual” refers to the surface at the back of the teeth, and that’s where the braces are placed. Incognito™ lingual braces (the brand of lingual braces we use here at the Straight Smile Centre™) are the only behind-the-teeth braces that are 100% customised to the shape of your teeth and to your individual orthodontic treatment. This ensures the brackets of the braces fit seamlessly against your teeth. Some patients do experience some discomfort immediately after the brackets have been bonded; however, this is will disappear after a few days as the mouth adjusts to them. Over-the-counter pain relief can reduce the discomfort in the meantime.
Benefits of hidden lingual braces
Suitable for all problems: 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.
Ideal for client-facing roles: Often popular for adults working in professional and business settings due to their discreet nature, lingual braces are ideal for patients who may be self-conscious about the appearance of traditional braces.
Custom-made for great results: Incognito™ lingual braces are fully customised to fit almost any smile or oral condition. Appropriate for use in the majority of cases to straighten teeth and correct bite, Incognito™ lingual braces are able to solve the more complex cases which are not able to be treated through the use of clear aligners.
Fully adaptable: The Incognito™ lingual brace system is fully adaptable and can 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.
