Incognito Hidden Braces
What are Incognito Braces?
Incognito Braces are a great option for cosmetic orthodontic treatment, especially if you do not like the visibility of metal braces on front of your teeth. These behind the teeth braces for adults are applied to the back of the teeth making them practically invisible to others throughout the course of your treatment. This type of adult braces requires an expert orthodontist such as Dr. Adam Schulhof, who underwent specialized training. Many patients prefer this option because they are as close to invisible braces as one can get.
Incognito as an Invisalign alternative
Other options for invisible braces for adults in NYC are available, including Invisalign. However, Incognito Hidden Braces prove to be a more favorable alternative to this option, especially when taking lifestyle into consideration. Invisalign retainers have to be taken in and out whenever doing daily activities such as eating and brushing your teeth. This can be distracting especially during social interactions. With Incognito Braces, once the brackets are on the back of the teeth, they remain there for the duration of the treatment. Another plus is that this type of orthodontic treatment requires fewer visits to the orthodontist, which is perfect for adults who are constantly surrounded by the hustle and bustle of New York City.
What are the benefits of Incognito Braces?
The first and foremost benefit of Incognito is its hidden position throughout the course of your orthodontic treatment. A patient wearing braces behind the teeth will be able to go through his or her daily activities and interactions without having to worry about being embarrassed in front of friends and co-workers. In short, Incognito Hidden Braces allow you and other people see your smile get more beautiful each day because there are no metal obstructions in front of your teeth.
Another benefit is the guarantee of the treatment. It has shown to be just as effective as traditional braces in terms of teeth correction, as well as in terms of treatment length. Straightening your teeth and realigning your bite has a big impact on the state of your oral health. It can help deter plaque build-up that occurs more often with crooked teeth as they are harder to thoroughly clean.
How does the treatment process work?
Getting behind the teeth braces for adults is a process that is relatively easy and simple. After visiting Dr. Adam Schulhof, a leading NYC orthodontist for a consultation, he will be able to identify what issues you hope to correct with teeth straightening. He will then take a mold of your mouth to get a 100% customized fit for each individual tooth and bracket. This mold is then sent out to a lab in order to have each bracket uniquely and precisely created. Once the custom brackets and wires are ready, you will come in to have Dr. Schulhof attach them to the back of the teeth. Each bracket will be attached by intelligent wires that will gradually move the teeth back into the correct alignment. You will return to every couple of months to have him check on the progress as well as make any necessary adjustments.
