When most people think of metal braces, they think of children and teenagers. But nowadays, more and more adults are opting for braces. However, adults are not always keen on wearing metal braces.
Incognito lingual braces can do what metal braces can do in a shorter amount of time, with less discomfort, customised to your treatment plan and your teeth. They are offered by an increasing number of dental practices in the UK, including Weybridge Orthodontics in Weybridge.
Why do people get braces in adulthood? Usually, this is because they could not afford braces when they were younger. Now that they are adults, they want to improve their smile and their dental health as discreetly as possible. On the other hand, some adults had braces, but didn’t wear their retainers, causing their teeth to become crooked again.
Incognito braces are custom-made for your teeth and come with certain advantages:
If you are worried about the appearance of your braces, Incognito lingual braces offer a blend of attractiveness and functionality. Unlike conventional braces, lingual braces are fixed to the back side of the teeth and therefore are invisible to almost everyone. Invisibility offers improved confidence in social situations.
Patients wearing Incognito braces usually feel minimal discomfort during fitting and this is because the braces are customised to each individual tooth. At the same time, speech impairment is less of an issue when compared to other types of braces. As expected, some discomfort may be experienced in the beginning, but it usually goes away.
Shorter Treatment Time
If you want to have your teeth straightened but do not want to spend years wearing braces, then Incognito braces are ideal for you. Being custom-made, they require fewer adjustments compared to regular braces and, overall, offer a quicker treatment time.
If you are a good candidate for traditional metal braces, there is a good chance that you can have Incognito lingual braces as well. Incognito braces can correct almost as many dental issues as traditional braces can. They are particularly useful for people who are afraid about regular braces damaging their teeth and lips during daily activities. Musicians who play wind instruments and athletes that engage in contact sports tend to prefer Incognito lingual braces over traditional braces.
