What are Incognito™ Lingual Braces?
Incognito™ (lingual) braces are placed on the backside of the front teeth. Because these types of braces are less noticeable, they are a popular choice amongst our patients who are concerned about wearing metal braces. Lingual braces are recommended for teenagers and adults with overcrowded teeth and bite problems, and the outcomes are comparable to conventional metal braces.
Incognito™ Lingual Braces are Fully Customizable
Incognito™ braces are custom fit to your teeth. Dr. Kadan develops a design for your lingual braces during your consultation appointment. The design is sent to a lab that will make your personalized Incognito™ braces.
How Do Lingual Braces Differ from Conventional Braces?
The two primary differences between Incognito™ lingual braces and conventional braces are:
Lingual braces are custom-fit to your teeth whereas conventional braces are comprised of standardized brackets, bands, and wires.
Incognito™ braces fit the back of the teeth where they are difficult to see, whereas conventional braces are mounted to the front of the teeth and very noticeable.
Can Anyone Wear Incognito™ Orthodontic Braces?
Teenagers over 13 years old and adults are prime candidates for Incognito™ braces. In most cases, being a candidate for conventional braces means that you are also a candidate for lingual braces. After a thorough examination, Dr. Kadan is better able to provide professional guidance about your candidacy for lingual braces.
