Hidden braces, also known as lingual braces, straighten teeth so discreetly no-one will know you're having treatment, unless you tell them of course. That is because hidden braces are bonded to the back of your teeth, next to your tongue.
How do lingual braces straighten teeth?
Lingual braces use the brackets and archwire system that traditional metal braces do. The brackets are slightly smaller to ensure they fit on the back of your teeth, but they still work with the archwires to apply gentle pressure to your teeth. Over time, this pressure helps to straighten your teeth, creating the smile you've always dreamed of.
Incognito lingual braces
At Lane Cove Orthodontics in Lane Cove, north of the Sydney CBD, we use Incognito lingual braces. This brand of hidden braces uses CAD/CAM technology which allows us to get an extremely accurate impression of your teeth. Using these impressions we will get customised braces made for you. When we first fit them to your teeth, you'll notice a slight change in your speech but this will only last a couple of days. Once you get used to them, you won't even notice you're wearing braces - and neither will anyone else!
Benefits of hidden braces
The number one benefit of hidden braces for most of our patients is how discreet they are, but there are also a few other benefits of this popular orthodontic treatment:
- They're comfortable, due to the smaller brackets used
- They're effective, thanks to the traditional system of brackets and archwires
- They're suitable for most types of orthodontic cases
