Incognito is an invisible brace system, which is fully customised for each individual patient. Incognito braces is a type of ‘lingual’ brace, which means they are fitted behind the teeth so they are completely hidden. The hi-tech brackets are very low profile which adds to patient comfort. Incognito braces provide extremely effective results and are virtually undetectable, which makes this system a great alternative to other orthodontic treatments.
Incognito braces can be used to treat a very wide range of orthodontic problems from simple cases right through to complex cases.
Treatments typically take 9 - 15 months, depending on the complexity of treatment. Our orthodontists can give you a more accurate guide to treatment length at your consultation.
Incognito braces generate forces that move teeth via brackets that are attached to the inside of the teeth with flexible and springy archwires. The archwires are stretched into position and then spring back to their original shape over time, which moves the teeth. Additional forces can be generated with clear elastic chains if required.
1 Consultation. We’ll discover your wishes and plan the treatment that best suits your needs.
2 Impression. Accurate impressions of you teeth are taken. These impressions are sent to the hi-tech Incognito lab in Germany, where you’re braces are designed using CAD-CAM technology and custom made.
3 Fitting. Our specialist orthodontic team will fit the metal brackets to the inside surfaces of your teeth. The metal archwires create comfortable continuous forces that quickly move your teeth into alignment.
4 Review appointments. You would return the change the archwire typically once every 6-8 weeks until your teeth are straight. Retainers are fitted keep the teeth in the final position.
