Many adult patients nowadays wish to improve their smiles, the alignment of their teeth and/or correct their bite but with absolute discretion. Lingual fixed appliances are ideal in such cases.
These appliances fit on the inner surfaces of the teeth and therefore are the most discrete type of appliance. The incognito system is the only fully digitally customised appliance with the highest level of precision and accuracy for each individual tooth. The manufacturing process entails a completely digital workflow in a laboratory specifically dedicated to the manufacture of incognito appliances. The brackets produced are very low profile, so they cause as little irritation to the tongue as possible.
Lingual fixed appliances are the most appropriate choice for those who want to keep their orthodontic treatment as discreet as possible.
The outcome and comfort of these appliances require higher levels of expertise. The success of the fitting of the appliance system, the comfort related to this appliance and the adjustment and the appliances are very technique sensitive. Subtle differences in the bonding/glueing protocol, as well as the way the wire is shaped, may have a significant impact in the comfort of the appliance and therefore treatment is recommended to be provided only by an experienced orthodontist.
