At Tracey Bell UK we offer many types of invisible braces.
Here is an overview of the type of Invisible braces which you may consider when choosing the correct dental brace for you.
Lingual fixed appliances
These are virtually invisible orthodontic appliances fixed to the back of the teeth.
Braces fitted behind the teeth are described as lingual, from lingua, the Latin word for tongue. Concealed on the inside of the teeth, they are most often worn by adult private patients who want their teeth straightened but don’t want to be seen in braces.
About 10% of the UK’s 960 registered orthodontic specialists offer the lingual technique, and the number is growing. As with all brace systems which are fixed to teeth, they allow for greater three-dimensional control than removable treatments and can treat and improve a wider range of problems.
There are many lingual systems, including customized and non-customized options. It’s also possible to have invisible lingual braces on your upper teeth and standard braces on your lower teeth.
A small risk of orthodontic treatment is decalcification, an attack on tooth enamel producing white marks, usually the result of poor diet and poor oral hygiene. One benefit of lingual braces is that they are less likely to mark teeth than standard braces. This is supported by research which (1) shows that the damage, which can occur, is likely to be less severe and less frequent on lingual surfaces.
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 maximize comfort and ensure precise results, this is achieved by using the latest computer technology when creating the brace.
Over 700 fully qualified and trained orthodontists who are registered across the UK and Ireland can fit incognito braces. Costs vary depending upon individual needs, but on average treatment can start from £2,500.
A registered orthodontist will be able to advise on individual treatment needs following an initial consultation.
