Invisible Lingual braces created by 3M Incognito consist of wires attached to custom-made gold plates, which apply pressure to the back surfaces of your teeth, rather than the front. This makes these braces a lot more discreet than others. If you’re worried about feeling self-conscious when you have orthodontic treatment, lingual braces could well be the answer. They are suitable for all age groups and achieve very precise results. Here at Loughborough Orthodontics, we use the leading Incognito brand.
They are individually designed and produced just for you. Visible success in only a short time.
They are placed on the back of the teeth they are virtually invisible from the outside.
Most patients experience minimal discomfort and speech interference, after just a short adjustment period, you will be able to eat and speak normally.
Reliable correction of all types of incorrect tooth positions. Suitable for all age groups.
No risk of decalcification to the front tooth surface. Since the brackets are made from gold alloy, nickel allergies are not a problem.
The treatment gave me confidence from start to finish. I wish I’d done it years ago. You don’t realise how important your smile is. Invisalign has had a massive impact on my life: I smile confidently, I look better in photographs –my teeth aren’t an obsession anymore. The results were everything I imagined.
It’s unlikely, but if you find that the braces do interfere with your speech, you should only be affected for a couple of weeks, until you get used to them.
The treatment time will vary according to each individual. If you’re simply having your front teeth straightened, the treatment time will be shorter.
You might experience some discomfort in your mouth directly after having had them fitted, but if you follow the instructions provided by your orthodontist, you’ll soon get used to them.
