More About Lingual Braces

If you’re thinking about getting braces, you’re probably already looking forward to your new smile. But you don’t need to wait until the braces come off to smile with confidence! Incognito Hidden Braces work behind the scenes – literally – so no one can see you’re wearing braces. The braces are hidden behind your teeth and practically invisible when you smile. And they’re 100% customized for you, so you can be confident in the results.

With over 100,000 patients treated worldwide, there’s a good chance you’ve seen someone wearing them and you didn’t even know it!

Life with Lingual Braces

Since these Incognito braces rest near your tongue, patients typically experience an adjustment period of roughly 2 weeks. At that point, most people barely notice the braces and begin to speak the same as they did prior to getting braces.

As with all orthodontic treatments, hygiene is extremely important. An electric toothbrush provides the most effective method for cleaning, and flossing is just as important as ever.

Water-based toothpicks do a good job of keeping the mouth feeling fresh throughout your treatment, particularly around brackets and on the tongue. Mouthwash is also fine to use on lingual braces.

Common Questions

What Are Lingual Braces?

Incognito lingual braces are completely hidden behind your teeth. You don’t have to worry about taking them out to eat, and you don’t have to track the number of hours you must wear them each day.

Brackets and wires are engineered to deliver precise, targeted results through advanced digital technology. Everything is customized just for you for the best possible comfort and treatment success.

How do Lingual Braces Work?

As with traditional metal braces, Incognito Hidden Braces are a combination of brackets and wires. The difference is that lingual braces are completely custom-made and fit on the inside of your teeth.

The process begins with Dr. Riano taking a precise impression of your teeth. He sends the impression to the 3M lab where, based on his prescription, models of your mouth are made to deliver the best possible result for your teeth.

Custom brackets are then designed to specifically fit each one of your teeth, and wires are robotically bent based on Dr. Riano’s detailed instructions. Everything is shipped to San Francisco prior to treatment.
