Incognito Lingual Braces (Braces Behind the Teeth)

What are Incognito Lingual Braces?

Unlike traditional braces, Incognito braces are placed behind your teeth, hidden and out of view, so no one will know you’re wearing braces unless you let them know!

Since these braces are not visible you can feel comfortable and confident during treatment particularly in professional environments.

Great for both teens and adults, Incognito lingual braces will straighten your teeth gradually into a beautiful smile.

To those looking at you, your teeth will look perfectly normal (and a little straighter each time they see you!). Behind your teeth is where the magic happens.

The brackets are perfectly shaped to hug the surfaces on back of your teeth for maximum comfort, fit, and efficacy, and the precision archwires are specially prescribed and fitted by Dr. Emma for optimal teeth movement.

Here are some of the benefits of Incognito braces:

  • Cutting Edge Technology: high-tech brackets and wires are made from precise 3D digital scans and provide efficient and effective tooth movement.
  • Custom: Dr. Emma will customize each Incognito bracket and wire specifically to the shape of your mouth and your dental needs for precision of tooth movement.
  • Comfort: Incognito braces are made of gold. These thin strong gold braces take up less space behind your teeth for your comfort.After a short period of adjustment, you will be able to speak and eat normally.

Are Incognito Braces Right for Me?

Incognito braces are a good solution for anyone age 13 or above. Chances are, if you can be treated with traditional braces, you’re a good candidate for Incognito. Please feel free to contact us to discuss your specific needs.

What is treatment like and long does it take?

Dr. Emma starts by taking a very precise 3-D digital iTero impression of your teeth and will send it, along with your prescription, to the Incognito Lab, who will use high-tech computer-aided design procedures to produce braces that are 100% customized for your teeth (and your teeth alone). The brackets are made of a highly durable and safe gold alloy. A set of precision wires if then designed and bent with fine precision using robotic technology.

The total time you’ll need to wear your braces will vary depending on your specific case. Please schedule a complementary consultation to discuss your specific case in more detail.

Do these braces affect speech?

A few patients may experience minor speech issues during the first few weeks as the mouth adjusts to the braces, but these will improve as treatment progresses. Dr. Emma also provides patients with speech exercises to ensure speech gets back to normal.

Does it hurt?

As with all braces, for the first week or two after your braces are put on, you may experience soreness in your tongue, lips and teeth as your mouth starts to respond to the treatment. Dr. Emma will provide you specific instructions on how to care for and adjust your new braces.

Do Behind-the-Teeth braces cost more than traditional braces?

Because of the level of customization needed for each patient’s prescription (each bracket and wire are specially made for every individual), the fee for Incognito braces tends to be higher than other orthodontics. Dr. Emma can consult with you to determine whether the advantages of this new system are worth the cost.

Will insurance cover the cost of Incognito?

At your consultation, Dr. Emma’s staff will discuss with you whether you insurance plan can cover the cost. In most cases, if your insurance plan covers traditional braces they will cover Incognito braces as well.
