Orthodontic treatment the invisible way
Like traditional braces, lingual braces are fixed to the surface of your teeth but the difference is, lingual braces are applied to the back of your teeth rather than the front. By being positioned on the tongue side of your teeth, they are an incredibly discreet treatment option and are great for people who don't wish to see the braces or don't want others to know they're undergoing orthodontic treatment.
Lingual braces use the same technology that traditional metal braces do – brackets, archwires and elastics. The lingual braces that we provide are custom-designed for each patient to maximize efficiency and comfort. They do take a bit longer to get used to, but once your mouth adjusts to having the braces fitted, you will hardly notice the difference. More importantly, others won’t notice you’re wearing them.
Drs Huntley and Rootkin-Gray have been providing lingual fixed braces since 2002 and Incognito lingual braces since 2008. This is the world’s premier system providing the slimmest and most precise, and thus the most efficient and comfortable lingual system available. Dr Huntley has been a 3M mentor for other orthodontists in the use of Incognito between 2011 – 2015. He has also been invited to speak by the British Lingual Orthodontic Society (York 2012 meeting). He has published two articles in the Journal of Orthodontics on the use of Incognito, and is the inventor of a new method for ligating Incognito brackets.
