Lingual orthodontics works in the same way as conventional fixed braces. Our orthodontist here in Battersea maintains full control of the movement of the teeth. The only difference is the brackets are attached to the inner surface of the tooth, rendering them almost invisible. The only person who will know you are undergoing orthodontic treatment is you.
As long as you have healthy gums, bone and teeth, lingual braces are for you.
Incognito is the 'Rolls-Royce' of lingual orthodontics. These brackets sit discretely on the back of the tooth meaning they are virtually invisible. The brackets are individually customised for you with the highest level of precision.
Incognito are suitable for anyone, at any age. All types of malocclusions (incorrect tooth position) can be corrected using this innovate brace system.
The process starts with silicone impressions taken by our orthodontist here at Glow Dental in Battersea. The brackets are then made using a gold alloy, to specifically fit the lingual (tongue side) of your teeth. A custom-made archwire is then attached to the brackets. It is this archwire that moves the teeth into their new aligned position.
Thank you so much for my braces! I was so comfy and everyone was lovely! X
