Having straight teeth and a properly aligned jaw goes far beyond just appearances and can impact overall health. Straight teeth are easier to keep clean and can reduce the chances of cavities and gum disease with proper home care.
Proper jaw alignment can also help reduce the incidence of teeth grinding (bruxism) and also other related issues such as TMJ and headaches. Having straight teeth can also affect the entire shape of your face. Incognito™ lingual braces is one option offered by the orthodontists at 1st Family Dental to straighten your teeth effectively and discreetly. Lingual braces attach to the inside (lingual side) of your teeth and straighten your teeth similar to the way conventional braces can.
Incognito™ lingual braces are custom fitted to your teeth, unlike traditional metal or ceramic braces. First, your orthodontist will take impressions of your teeth and send them to the lab at 3M, along with a detailed treatment plan. The lab technicians use computer aided design and robotics to create a set of brackets and wires for your specific treatment needs.
Incognito™ lingual braces are more expensive than traditional braces because of this customization, but the results are equally effective, while being nearly invisible to everyone but you.
