Achieve Straight Teeth Invisibly With Incognito Braces
Once upon a time, undergoing a straightening treatment meant committing to metal braces for an extended period of time. While these braces are highly effective when it comes to straightening misaligned teeth, not everyone is thrilled about their obvious appearance.
Luckily, today we have Incognito® braces. Board-certified orthodontist Dr. Adam Schulhof is a leader in the world of orthodontics and has extensive experience and expertise when it comes to helping patients achieve beautifully straight teeth with this unique and highly discreet straightening method.
What Are Incognito Braces?
In recent years, technological advancements have allowed patients to choose from several options when it comes to the method in which they achieve straight teeth. Many adults who want to achieve straight teeth without the appearance of “metal mouth” opt for Invisalign, a series of plastic aligner trays that subtly shift teeth into alignment. However, Invisalign has limitations. For one thing, it cannot fix teeth that are severely misaligned. Invisalign also depends on the responsibility of the wearer as the trays are removable.
Luckily, Incognito braces are another discreet way to straighten teeth and can treat even the most severe cases of misalignment. Also known as lingual braces, this straightening method works just like traditional braces without the appearance of metal on the surface of the teeth. That’s because the wires and brackets are applied to the back of the teeth, leaving the front of the teeth free of the appearance of braces.
With Incognito braces, patients don’t have to worry about taking their straightening device out throughout the day like they do with Invisalign. Once the braces have been applied to the back of the teeth, they are there to stay.
Why Dr. Schulhof?
Dr. Schulhof has a unique level of expertise when it comes to straightening teeth with Incognito braces. He has spent many years training hundreds of orthodontists around the world on how to use this unique technology.
At the Schulhof Center for Cosmetic Orthodontics in New York, patients wishing to straighten their teeth with lingual braces will have access to a customized straightening treatment created by one of the world’s most qualified orthodontists to use this technology.
The Process of Incognito Braces
During your consultation, Dr. Schulhof will examine your unique orthodontic situation and determine the best way to help you achieve the results that you desire. He will take a impression-less mold of your mouth that will be used to create your customized braces. This digital mold will ensure that the braces fit comfortably and that they are extremely effective.
When it’s time to have your braces applied, Dr. Schulhof will apply a bonding material to the back of your teeth. This bonding material will be used to place each bracket into the correct location. Then, he will attach the wires that hold the brackets together and apply the necessary pressure to ensure that the teeth align properly over time. Throughout the duration of your treatment, you will visit Dr. Schulhof regularly to ensure that your teeth are shifting properly.
