Incognito is a type of brace that is quite different to the traditional type of fixed brace. The name incognito is derived from a latin word, which means to remain anonymous. Just like the name itself, this type of brace is a very discrete option as the brace is actually fitted to the tongue side of the teeth, and will be hidden by the teeth themselves.
If you have crooked or wonky teeth, you may be looking for a suitable treatment to correct them. However, you may not be as keen on a fixed brace which is visible. At our practice we are able to offer a wide variety of braces that can meet a number of different needs. We understand that some patients will prefer a much more discrete option, which is where Incognito and Lingual braces come in.
There are now many different types of braces available and they have all been designed with specific complaints in mind. Some braces are better for certain cases than others. We offer free consultations so one of our orthodontic dentists can assess and examine your teeth to identify which option will best meet your needs. When it comes to straightening your teeth, there can be many particular teeth movements that may be required to take you from the start of treatment to the end. Different systems will operate different to one another and as a result, can mean one type of brace will be recommended to you over another.
This will vary from patient to patient as it will depend on what system you go for, and how long your treatment is expected to take. To find out accurate information on what treatment will be the most suitable for you, please do not hesitate to book your free consultations today.
