How Does Incognito™ Work?
We take impressions of your teeth and send them to technicians at the 3M lab. Using computer-aided design and manufacturing (CAD/CAM), 3D printing technology, and robotics, your brackets and wires are custom manufactured exclusively for you, to correct your exact condition and deliver a confident smile. Each bracket is cast in gold with precision design. Not only is the gold highly polished for additional comfort, but it also is safe for anyone that has Nickel allergies. Because Incognito™ Braces are 100% customized to the contours of your teeth treatment time is usually shorter than when using generic brackets and they work on your teeth 24/7, unlike aligners that need to be removed whilst eating and to clean teeth, with people sometimes forgetting to put them back in or opting not to where them all the time. The brackets themselves are more comfortable and fewer appointments are usually necessary since the brackets and the wires are designed to efficiently deliver your final result.
I was very apprehensive about whether or not to have a brace before finally deciding to go through with the treatment. My only regret is that I didn’t do it 10 years ago. I am very pleased that I decided to choose lingual Incognito brace over a labial brace as nobody knows that I am wearing them even though I’ve told all my friends. I soon got used to wearing Incognito braces. I find them easy to eat with and also easy to clean.”
Your Questions Answered
Do they hurt? The procedure to get the braces placed on your teeth is painless for most people. No matter how you straighten your teeth, many people experience tenderness when their teeth move.
Will they affect my speech? Most people adjust to speaking with braces within two weeks. If you feel you’re speaking differently, you’re probably noticing it more than anyone else. Speak a bit more slowly until you feel comfortable with your new hidden braces.
Keeping them clean? No, caring for your Incognito Lingual Braces is not hard and is not very different than your current regular oral hygiene routine. An electric toothbrush and dental floss works beautifully. In addition at Wells Orthodontics we have specialists who can give you expert advice during treatment should it be necessary.
How long will it take to see results? Each case is unique, so the length of time it takes to see results with Incognito™ Hidden Braces varies. Many people begin to notice changes before their second appointment.
