Modern braces are revolutionising the way people think about getting their teeth aligned. For example Invisalign braces have become popular due to their clear plastic design making them almost unnoticeable. Incognito braces are also a more discreet alternative to traditional metal braces. They are fixed to the backs of your teeth, where they are hidden from view.
In Surrey, Weybridge Orthodontics is one dental practice that provides Incognito braces for effective teeth straightening. If you are interested in this type of treatment, it is worth getting to know some facts about how it works.
A Few Facts About Incognito
Incognito braces are lingual braces. This means that they are attached to the surface of your teeth that faces your tongue. For Incognito braces to be fitted, your dentist will use 3D imaging technology to design braces that are tailored to your particular set of teeth. This custom-made approach makes them more comfortable than standard metal braces, despite being made from similar materials.
One thing to note about Incognito braces is that their innovative design makes them more expensive compared with standard fixed metal braces. This is because more work goes into crafting each bracket to specifically fit comfortably to the backs of each of your teeth.
What to Expect During Treatment
In general, treatment with Incognito braces is not painful. However you may experience some soreness or discomfort in the first 2 weeks. The same is true of traditional metal braces. As your mouth adapts to having braces, this discomfort will ease off.
In terms of your speech, most patients do not find any difference after being fitted with Incognito braces. However for the few that do, these minor changes in their speech improve over the first few weeks.
