How do Incognito Hidden Braces work?

Similar to traditional metal braces, Incognito Hidden Braces are a combination of brackets and wires.  However, these are completely custom-made and fit on the inside of your teeth.

The process begins with the doctor taking a precise impression of your teeth. Your doctor sends the impression to the 3M lab, where based on your doctor's prescription, modes of your mouth are made to represent the desired result .... your perfect smile!

The brackets are then designed specificaly fit each one of your teeth.  Based on where the brackets are placed and your doctor's instructions, the wires are robotically bent.  Everything is shipped off to your doctor so you can get your braces

Life with Incognito Hidden Braces

We know what you are thinking ... will I be able to talk?  Are they comfortable? Can I keep them clean?

Speech:  There will be an adjustment periord with these braces because they rest near your tongue.  Most people find that within two weeks, they forget the braces are there and speak just as they did before getting braces.

Comfort:  Since the brackets are custom-made to fit your teeth snugly, people who wear Incognito Hidden Braces find them extrememly comfortable to adjust to them.  The brackets are smooth and have a low profile, meaning they sit very close to your teeth.

Hygiene:  This is extremely important with any orthodontic treatment, and Incognito Hidden Braces are no different.  An easy place to start is with an electric toothbrush.  Flossing must not be forgotten!  If you use mouthwash, you can continue this with your Incognito Hidden Braces.
