If you want to fix your mouth, but do not want the appliances to be visible, then Incognito® is a very good alternative for you.
After you have made your first visit and we have explained your malocclusion (dental problems) to you, we do a thorough study of the malocclusion and its implications for your face (especially its effect on the profile of the face). If you decide to be treated after learning about your treatment plan in depth, we will take silicone impressions (silicone measurements) of your teeth and send them to the Incognito® laboratory in Germany.
The impressions are cast with a special plaster, and a specialised technique sets up your teeth as they are supposed to be at the end of treatment. This is done using a special technique in which the teeth are set up in wax. This procedure is called a set-up. The set-up of the teeth is scanned with a high-resolution 3D scanner.
Subsequently, the brackets are specifically designed for your teeth in the shape of the set-up using a special Incognito® program. In this phase, the brackets are virtual.
The set of virtual brackets is turned into a set of brackets made of a special wax using a machine intended for this process. The brackets prepared in wax are placed in a coating and cast in gold.
Afterwards, the surface of each bracket is treated and prepared for adhesion, and the brackets are placed in a transfer tray made of silicone and sent to the orthodontist who is a specialist in the Incognito® technique. The silicone tray serves to place the brackets with maximum precision and removes the risk of placing the brackets in an improper position.
The wires push the teeth into their ideal position with the proper force in each phase. Based on the set-up, the wires are shaped and bent by a computer-controlled robot.

Once the brackets have been bonded, you will be able to see the changes happening in your mouth without the braces getting in the way, since they are placed on the inner part of the teeth. It must be mentioned that it will take you very little time to get used to the new brackets, since they are custom-made for you and specifically for each of your teeth.
