5 reasons to choose hidden braces
Posted on 24th July 2018 at 09:08
For adults, the idea of conventional brace treatments can be off-putting. But if you’re avoiding orthodontic treatment because you’re self-conscious about your appearance, take another look – there are hidden brace options that are just as effective as traditional alternatives and far more discreet.
1. No one need know you are having treatment
Unlike traditional braces that are fitted to the front of the teeth, hidden (lingual) braces are placed on the tongue side of your teeth, completely out of sight. Unless you mention that you are having orthodontic treatment, no one will realise they are there. This is ideal for adult patients who are in client-facing jobs and need to maintain a professional appearance throughout the treatment period.
2. Lingual braces are fully customised to fit your mouth
Lingual braces are highly sophisticated and 100% tailored to your teeth. Here at Park Dental Care, we offer Incognito braces – a market leader in hidden brace treatments. Each brace is custom made using computer-aided design and manufacturing processes, which means it will fit your mouth perfectly, producing predictable and accurate results.
3. Treatment time is faster
Although treatment time will vary according to your individual needs, typically it is up to 30% faster than normal fixed brace systems.
4. You can’t misplace them
Unlike removable aligners that can get lost easily, lingual braces are fixed to your teeth throughout treatment. It is impossible to lose them, and you won’t be tempted to leave them out for longer than you should, so the effectiveness of your treatment won’t be compromised.
5. High levels of precision and effective results
The technology behind lingual braces is extremely sophisticated, giving your orthodontist maximum control over the movement of your teeth. Unlike clear aligners, lingual braces can be adjusted to achieve very precise movements, and toward the end of treatment we can tweak individual teeth until they are in exactly the right position.
Here at Park Dental Care, we offer both Incognito hidden braces and Incognito Lite – a treatment that uses fewer brackets to straighten just the front six or eight teeth that show when you smile. If you are interested in learning more about orthodontic treatment options, please contact us to schedule a free consultation. We look forward to your visit.
