Turn over a new leaf
Last year, due to the restrictions enforced upon many up and down the country, the number of people seeking out orthodontic treatments such as Incognito Weybridge decreased significantly.
Now, however, as we hope to leave the worries of 2020 behind us, there has been a resurgence in the number of people expressing an interest in treatments such as the Incognito brace – which aims to realign a patient’s teeth, without affecting how they look during treatment.
Opening up to your options
While lingual braces are by no means a new invention (first being made publicly available around 1979) there continues to be a large proportion of people out there who are unaware that the option of lingual braces, such as the Incognito system, even exists.
These braces are designed fundamentally in a very similar way to how traditional braces are attached – in that brackets are fixed to each tooth and connected with a tension wire. However, the primary difference is that lingual braces such as Incognito are attached to the backs of a patient’s teeth – making them unseen from the front.
What are the benefits of Incognito?
Although conventional braces are a very much tried-and-tested way of quickly and efficiently realigning out-of-place teeth, they aren’t typically praised for their effect on a patient’s appearance.
This has led to several different alternative solutions springing up – one of which being Incognito – that aim to realign a patient’s teeth through a more discreet method.
Below are some of the main appeals of using the Incognito braces system.
One of the main benefits of the Incognito lingual bracket system is that it typically realigns out-of-place teeth faster than traditional braces, and requires less frequent visits to the orthodontist.
As mentioned, the Incognito system is designed to be invisible, as the brackets are on the inside of the patient’s teeth. This generally results in a boosted sense of self-confidence and esteem during treatment, as they can achieve dental alignment without attracting unwanted looks or attention.
Each installation of Incognito is unique to the patient receiving it. It is generally far more comfortable than a traditional brace, as this lingual brace is specifically designed with the patient in mind – rather than through a one-size-fits-all approach.
What does getting Incognito braces involve?
If you feel that there is a possibility your smile could be enhanced through the discreet effectiveness of Incognito braces, then simply arrange a consultation with a local trusted orthodontist.
Generally, the treatment for receiving Incognito braces from a trusted source follows a number of clear steps. A consultation and examination of your oral health is the first stage in getting any orthodontic treatment – including Incognito braces. This lets the orthodontist determine your eligibility, and gives you a chance to explain what your goals are.
Upon returning to the orthodontist’s practice for a second appointment, the orthodontist will take photographs and X-rays of your unique dental shape and structure – from which your Incognito braces will be crafted. These will also allow the orthodontist to create models of how your teeth currently look, and how they will look after completing your treatment.
Once a treatment plan has been created that you agree upon, the sizes and photographs will be sent to an expert technician who will craft your unique Incognito brace system.
After a few weeks during which the braces are being crafted, the patient will return once more to have them installed. Then they can begin to enjoy the cosmetic advantages that Incognito braces afford them, whilst simultaneously having the alignment of their teeth corrected.
