Incognito™ braces are a great option for patients who want to minimize the appearance of their braces treatment. By hiding braces behind the teeth, they are virtually invisible. The Doral & Miami Centers for Orthodontics offer Incognito™ braces and other orthodontic solutions to residents of Miami Springs, Kendall, Hialeah, and the neighboring areas of Florida.
What Are Incognito™ Braces?
Incognito™ braces, also called lingual braces, are a hidden braces treatment that involves placing the braces on the inside of the teeth, hidden from view. These braces are a great option for models, athletes, and anyone else who wants their braces to be invisible when they smile. Each metal appliance is carefully made to fit the unique shape of your tooth, ensuring a secure and effective fit. Many patients who are a candidate for traditional braces are often a candidate for lingual braces, as well.
What is it Like to Have Incognito™ Braces?
Incognito™ braces offer advantages over traditional braces when it comes to comfort, aesthetics, and convenience. Because they are located behind the teeth, it is much easier to keep your mouth protected when playing sports. Plus, patients won’t experience the discomfort that is often caused by metal braces poking the inside of the mouth. The largest benefit is the invisibility of treatment, as Incognito™ braces cannot be seen when you smile. Besides these benefits, Incognito™ braces are quite similar to having traditional braces. You will have to take special care when brushing and flossing to maintain good oral hygiene and ensure that your braces remain clean and free from food debris. You may also have to avoid certain foods, as crunchy, hard, and chewy foods can damage your braces. To learn more about adjusting to your new braces, visit our page on life with braces.
How Long Will I Have to Wear Braces?
Incognito™ braces are just as effective as traditional braces, so your treatment time will not be affected by choosing one method over another. The length of your braces treatment will depend on the concerns that need to be corrected during your treatment. Typically, our patients wear braces for between six and 30 months, with most patients wearing them for about 22 months. During your initial appointment, we will be able to provide you with an accurate timeline of your braces treatment.
