Incognito – braces behind the teeth
Are you thinking about getting incognito lingual braces but not quite sure about how
these braces compare to other modern orthodontic treatments like invisalign? Incognito
braces work just as well as invisalign braces when it comes to inconspicuously realigning
teeth. Regular metal braces can look unsightly and have to be adjusted periodically which
can be painful and inconvenient. Both are excellent solutions if you are in need of
orthodontic braces without much pain or discomfort.
Incognito or invisalign – which is better?
Now the best way to determine which orthodontic treatment is right for you is to delve
into the differences between the two. Incognito are often referred to as “braces behind
teeth” because such braces are exactly just that – braces that are installed on the back part
of each tooth. Invisalign on the other hand are transparent and removable moulds that
cover the teeth completely and are much more convenient when it comes to installation.
Of course you will have to remove the moulds when eating or brushing your teeth hence
convenience is ultimately a matter of preference.
In terms of sheer effectiveness, it comes to no surprise that incognito brackets are
significantly more effective than invisalign as it’s affixed directly behind the teeth.
Although invisalign tend to be a lot more convenient and painless to install; treatment
times tend to be a lot longer with invisalign braces.
Yet another significant factor when deciding on whether to opt for incognito or invisalign
braces is cost. Invisalign tend to cost significantly more than incognito braces as it needs
to be specially fabricated and replaced on a regular basis to keep pace with changes in
tooth alignment. Although the cost of incognito lingual braces often exceed that of
invisalign braces albeit initially, it only needs to periodically adjusted throughout the
duration of the treatment.
