Incognito or eBrace systems are the totally hidden braces that will move your teeth without anyone even knowing you are wearing a brace.
If you would rather no one knew you were wearing a brace for aesthetic or professional reasons then Incognito or eBrace could be an option for you. The braces are 100% customised to deliver specific results for each patient. Your orthodontist determines your treatment plan and then your braces are custom-made just for you.
For the first two weeks after your braces are put on, your tongue, lips and teeth may be sore, just as they would be with traditional metal braces. You will be given instructions from your orthodontist as to how to care for and adjust to your new braces. On the whole, most patients experience minimal discomfort and speech interference, after just a short adjustment period, you will be able to eat and speak normally.
Treatment time varies for each individual patient and the amount of work required to align the teeth, but it is usually between 12 to 24 months although many patients will start to see results after just a few weeks. Due to the advanced technology in the customised brackets, precise bracket placement and precision bent wires, your teeth will move in the most efficient manner possible. You will still be required to visit the practice every 6 to 8 weeks for your orthodontist to check your progress and maintain your brace. New wires will be fitted to the brackets to gently move your teeth into position.
Once the smile you envisaged has been achieved your orthodontist will remove the brackets from the back of your teeth. This requires some force to break the bonds but it should not be painful. The backs of the teeth are cleaned and polished of any leftover glue. Once removed a permanent wire is fitted to the backs of the teeth. This will hold your teeth in their new position. You will also be given a retainer to wear at night.
