Hidden braces

Incognito braces are an advanced generation of brace that is hidden discreetly on the back of the teeth, not on the front like conventional ‘train tracks’. This allows people to go about their daily routine without feeling self-conscious because their braces are virtually invisible from the outside.

The discreet brace is custom made for each patient to maximise comfort and ensure precise results. Incognito braces are versatile and are suitable for a wide range of orthodontic problems.

For simple cases involving alignment of the front teeth we offer Incognito Lite. This system offers precise control of movement of the teeth creating a confident smile in a short period of time.

Incognito braces are exclusively used by Incognito Certified Specialists in Orthodontics and are a great option for Adults who want to explore braces. The certification ensures high quality treatment with excellent results. At Finaghy Orthodontic Centre in Belfast Maurice Cummings & James Lundy are fully qualified and registered to provide treatment with Incognito braces.

What is the difference between an orthodontist and a dentist?

Orthodontists are fully qualified dentists who have completed a further period of training and examinations in order to specialise in orthodontics. A specialist orthodontist will have carried out at least 3 years of extra training in a hospital setting after attending dental school and passed an exam set by one of the Royal Colleges. Only those dentists who have completed this training and hold an MOrth or equivalent can register with the GDC as a specialist orthodontist.

What will happen at my first visit?

We will introduce ourselves and explain what will happen at the visit. An orthodontist will examine your jaws and teeth, using a small mirror and a special ruler. We may need to take photographs, x-rays and moulds (impressions) of your teeth. We will explain the problems with your teeth and how we can help. This may involve braces and/or extractions.
If you are under 18 years old, you will have an IOTN score done (index of orthodontic treatment need). This will help to determine if you need treatment and if you are eligible for NHS treatment.

How long will treatment take?

A comprehensive of treatment takes 18 months to 2 years; however it can be longer in some more complex cases. In some simpler cases the treatment can be carried out in less time. Your orthodontist will discuss this further at the initial visits.

What is a lingual fixed brace?

Unlike standard fixed braces, lingual appliances are attached to the inside surface of the teeth which makes them very discrete. The practice offers Incognito Lingual Braces and this system is capable of producing high quality results. Each Incognito appliance is specially made for each individual case helping to achieve the best possible results, patient comfort and treatment efficiency.
