Incognito braces

Incognito braces in Georgetown

Incognito braces — also called iBraces — is a unique orthodontic system that features customized brackets that are placed out of plain sight: on the backs of your teeth! They’re designed using state-of-the art technology and are appropriate for both adults and teens alike.

What are Lingual Braces?

The “tongue side” surface of your teeth is something we in dentistry refer to as the “lingual” surface (Trick to remember: if you’re bilingual, you speak two languages with your tongue.)

In most cases, Sussex County braces are placed on the facial side of your teeth, or the surface that’s pointed outward toward your face. But in that case, they’re visible when you smile.

By tucking braces away on the lingual sides of your teeth, they’re practically invisible when you’re smiling or talking. Our Georgetown Incognito Braces do just that! Even though they work similar to conventional braces systems, they’re placed on the opposite side of your teeth.

You could call lingual braces like Incognito a “successfully discreet” version of traditional orthodontics

Hidden Braces Benefits

When you have lingual braces, they’re hidden from everyone else. And unlike conventional braces, the Incognito system is custom molded and shaped to each of your individual teeth. That means smoother appliances, less irritation, and maximum comfort during your teeth straightening process!

When you need moderate to significant tooth alignment treatment, Incognito makes it possible to address bigger issues that might not respond as well to removable aligners. That way you can still discreetly straighten your teeth but don’t need to worry about visible metal brackets and wires.

How to Clean Incognito Braces

Since Delaware Incognito braces aren’t visible, they can sometimes be a bit more challenging to clean. Fortunately, with an electric toothbrush and water flosser, the process is fairly straightforward. Simply clean along the appliances and your gumlines twice per day to prevent buildup, gingivitis, and bad breath. In fact, having straighter teeth can improve your overall oral health!
