Adult Braces Don’t Have to Be Ugly When Worn on the Flip Side

Posted on May 4, 2021

Right now, over 4 million Americans wear braces, per the American Association of Orthodontists. People want a healthy and beautiful smile. That’s precisely what has motivated many Americans to straighten their teeth, particularly adults. For many, seeking treatment from an orthodontist is either scary or they avoid it because they don’t want the “ugly” look of traditional metal braces.

There Are Options for Image-Conscious People

For working professionals, image-conscious teenagers, as well as others who prefer not to draw attention to dental work in progress, there are invisible braces. If the fear that braces will make you feel ugly, know that the popularity of braces that are “hidden” is growing. The global market for invisible orthodontics is expected to reach $7.26 billion in 2026.

Lingual braces are one of the most popular types of invisible braces. They use the same components as traditional braces, they are just fixed to the back, or lingual, side of your teeth. Since they are behind your teeth, they are almost invisible.

Ask If You Are a Good Candidate for Lingual Braces

The best way to find out if you are a candidate for lingual braces is to visit an orthodontist’s office. The best orthodontist will examine your teeth and gums to determine if you are a good candidate for lingual braces. Other than being virtually invisible, why should you choose lingual braces?

Lingual braces are capable of correcting the exact same alignment problems as conventional braces. Per a review in 2016, research has shown that treatment goals set by patients and their orthodontists were achieved using lingual braces. However, lingual braces may not be right for you. If you have a deep overbite, you could have issues with brackets popping off frequently. Your orthodontist will be able to fully explain whether you are a good candidate or not.

Now You Can Stay “Incognito”

Years ago, “hidden braces” consisted of ceramic brackets. While those types of braces were and still are a great substitute for metal braces, there is a new incognito solution. Adult Incognito Braces are an effective and safe form of lingual braces affixed to the inside, or backside, of teeth. They are completely inconspicuous when you smile, making your orthodontic braces fully incognito.

Enjoy the Benefits of Incognito Braces

Incognito Braces are more than just hidden from the eye. They are also comfortable since they are 100% custom-made. Custom-made braces fit and feel better during treatment. Your orthodontist will ensure that you get the perfect fit.

You won’t have to fuss with clear aligners either. Once Incognito Braces are put in place, there is no need for any other equipment. Just follow your normal habit of brushing and flossing as stated by your orthodontist to keep your teeth and gums healthy during treatment.

Incognito Braces give you the ability to remain confident. Whether you are dating, trying to land your dream job, graduating, or your wedding day is approaching, lingual braces let you smile without showing off a mouth full of metal or plastic. With braces no one will be able to see, your smile will improve, and your confidence will be boosted.

Why Are Incognito Braces So Popular?

There are many reasons Incognito Braces are becoming more popular. They are completely invisible which makes it easier to exude confidence. You also won’t have to worry about inserting or removing clear aligners while eating and drinking.

Incognito Braces are fully customized using intelligent wires and brackets that have been engineered to deliver targeted results. Basically, no matter how misaligned your teeth are, they will end up completely straight. They simply fit your lifestyle and perfectly conform to your teeth, which ultimately optimize efficiency and comfort.
