What Is The Procedure For Having London Incognito Braces?
Firstly you will need a consultation with the orthodontist in order to ascertain whether you are a good candidate for this treatment or not. Then, in order to make your custom-made Incognito braces London, the orthodontist will need to take an accurate impression of your teeth to send off to the Incognito licensed laboratory. At Smile Cliniq London, we use the best impression materials on the market such as Provigil Novo putty from Heraeus Kulzer and Affinis light body impression material from Coltene Whaledent. The use of good quality and precise materials ensures an accurate impression is taken, and therefore the brackets that come back from the Incognito laboratory will fit perfectly.
When the Incognito brackets arrive, they are fitted onto the inside surface of your teeth in their precise order and position.
Every 4 – 6 weeks, you will be asked to come back for a review to see our Smile Cliniq London dentist, who will check your progress and make adjustments to re-tighten the Incognito brace.
Treatment time generally takes around 12-18 months to complete.

Any braces, aligners and other oral devices take time to get used to. Initially, it feels uncomfortable, with hyper- or hypo- salivation common, and a small lisp can be present, this usually disappears after a few days.
The biggest risks with any orthodontic treatment are decay and gum disease developing. When wearing any oral device, dentures, braces, aligners, or retainers, it is more difficult to clean the teeth and gums. This can cause decay, and gum disease, so it is imperative to maintain excellent oral hygiene. It is often recommended to attend more regularly hygiene appointments, use a fluoride mouthwash and spend extra time cleaning the teeth during orthodontic treatment. Please see here for further information on maintaining good oral hygiene. Small interdental brushes are particularly good for cleaning between the braces and teeth.
Retention: After treatment is completed we normally place removable (similar to clear aligners, but non-pressurised) or fixed retainers (thin wire bonded to the back of teeth) to hold them in their new position. Over time these can wear down or de-bond and they may need replacing, extra fees will be due when and if they need replacing.
Incognito Braces London FAQs
What do incognito braces cost in London?
The incognito braces cost in London starts from £5000. We can determine your actual cost at your consultation. The cost of your braces will vary depending on:
- The length of your treatment

Will incognito lingual braces London give me a lisp?
The short answer is yes. When you speak, your tongue touches the backs of your teeth to make certain sounds. Since the brackets are on the back sides of your teeth, your speech is going to be affected when you first get lingual braces.
Are London incognito braces uncomfortable?
No matter what kind of braces you choose, you will have some discomfort as your teeth begin to move.
Most people experience this pain as a dull ache, and it can generally be relieved with over-the-counter medications. You’ll probably want to eat soft foods like yoghurt, rice, and soft-boiled eggs until the pain subsides.
Braces can also cause pain when brackets come into contact with the soft tissues inside your mouth. With lingual braces, the tongue is a common site of pain because of the location of the brackets.
Are incognito braces in London worth it?
Studies show that this type of braces is highly effective as a customised treatment option. While the braces are an enticing choice for those who want to avoid the aesthetics of traditional braces, you do need to consider some of the downfalls.
Do incognito braces in London push your teeth out?
Your incognito lingual braces London will exert pressure on your teeth. This causes their periodontal membrane to stretch and compress, and the teeth to loosen. New bone will then form around the teeth, supporting them in their new position – a process known as bone remodelling.For More Information and Consent Click Here
