Time for Orthodontics? Why You Should Consider Incognito Lingual Braces
Today, you have lots of orthodontic options for straightening crooked or crowded teeth. One very effective treatment that many people don’t know about is lingual braces.
Lingual braces are a treatment method where brackets and wires are mounted on the back side of your teeth. Many patients choose Incognito lingual braces at our Miami dental office because they are invisible and won’t compromise the appearance of a beautiful smile.
What Do You Mean by “Lingual” Braces?
The word “lingual” refers to anything related to or near the tongue. Incognito braces are affixed to the back side of the teeth, so they are referred to as lingual.
How Does Treatment with Incognito Lingual Braces Work?
The function of lingual braces is the same as that of traditional braces. Digital impressions are taken of your teeth, and a treatment plan is developed to gradually move your teeth into their optimal position. The difference is that Incognito lingual braces are bonded to the back of your teeth, not the front. Unlike traditional braces, this makes Incognito invisible when you smile.
How Long Does Treatment with Incognito Take?
Treatment times with Incognito lingual braces are similar to those of traditional braces. However, every person’s needs are unique, and the length of treatment depends on the extent and type of misalignment we’re dealing with.
