Who is a candidate for Incognito™ braces?

In short, just about anyone. Chances are if you are a candidate for regular braces, you are candidate for Incognito braces. Men, women, teenagers, adults, professionals and people from age 13 to over 60 have worn Incognito™ braces.

How does the process work?

Step 1.  Highly accurate digital impressions are taken

Step 2.  Precise tooth alignment, treatment goals are established and designed through a specially designed digital portal.

Step 3.  Braces and wires are individually designed and 100% custom made for each patient using CAD-CAM technology and wire bending robots.

Step 4.  All braces are attached simultaneously using a computer fabricated, custom made tray for precise alignment.

Are Incognito™ braces comfortable for your tongue?

Due to their small size, Incognito™ braces are much smaller than traditional braces so speech interference is minimal and comfort is maximized.

However, there is some initial adjustment for the first one to two weeks as your mouth gets adjusted to a new appliance. This process is normal and your mouth will become adapted to your new braces over time, similar to traditional style braces.

Will Incognito™ braces have an affect on my speech?

There will be a slight lisp with this appliance since it is on the backside of your teeth.  The lisp is very comparable to treatments with Invisalign, or other orthodontic appliances.

However, this is an issue you can overcome.  Many people in our office and around the world have had these braces successfully with minimal impact on their lives and careers.  This includes many people in the public eye where speaking is of paramount importance such as news reporters, musicians and even the famed Dallas Cowboy cheerleaders. 

Can any case be done with Incognito™ braces?

Yes. In general, if it can be done with traditional braces it can be done with Incognito braces. We have experience all types of cases with Incognito™.
