Lingual Braces

This bespoke brace system involves attaching brackets, wires and elastics on the inside of the teeth and, though well hidden, the process and equipment used is very similar and just effective as traditional fixed braces worn on the front of the teeth.

We use the Incognito™ system because it offers the highest levels of patient comfort by reducing tongue irritation and speech problems.

Incognito™ is suitable for adults and teenagers who may feel self-conscious about wearing a more obvious brace.

We will take impressions of your teeth so that custom made gold brackets can be created and then fitted discreetly to the inside (lingual) surface. Thin wires are then attached to these brackets so they can start applying pressure to the teeth to move them gradually into an improved position.

Treatment will take 12-24 months but many patients will see an improvement within just a couple of months. During this time we would like to see you regularly to check your progress and adjust the wires as necessary.

After treatment you will require a retainer to keep your newly straightened teeth in position.
