“Incognito braces are the modern and invisible alternative to conventional braces”

Incognito braces are an advanced generation of brace that is hidden discreetly on the back of the teeth, not on the front like conventional ‘train tacks’. This allows people to go about their daily routine without feeling self-conscious because their braces are virtually invisible from the outside.

Incognito braces are suitable for all age groups – children, adolescents and adults who want to correct their tooth position.

The brace is custom made for each patient to maximise comfort and ensure precise results, this is achieved by  using the latest computer technology when creating the brace.

1. Are Incognito Braces invisible?

Incognito braces straighten your teeth without anyone noticing because they are placed behind your teeth. They are only visible at certain angles and when you choose to show people.

2. Does it affect my speech?

After a short adjustment time, the tongue adapts to the appliance and pronunciation is usually no problem. Dr Mistry will give you exercises and useful tips to help you adjust to the braces as quickly as possible.

3. Do Incognito braces hurt?

Regardless of how you straighten your teeth, people experience a slight ache when teeth move. This is noticeable immediately after being bonded and for a day or so after each archwire change. Any discomfort should be controlled with a paracetemol or whatever you are used to taking for a headache.

4. Do the results appear within a short time?

Yes, within a short time you will notice a positive movement of your teeth.

5. Will my teeth be damaged by bonding braces to the inside?

No, clinical research shows that wearing braces on the inside of the teeth reduces the risk of white spots (decalcification).

6. Do incognito Braces require a high level of maintenance?

No, caring for your Incognito Braces will quickly become a natural part of your regular routine. Dr Mistry will give you hygiene tips and tricks.

7. How much will it cost?

This will depend on the complexity of your treatment and the length of treatment required. Dr Mistry will be able to give you a quote at your initial consultation.
