Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something…Gold?

There aren’t many new things in the profession of Orthodontics. Orthodontics became the first specialty of dentistry in 1929, and braces treatment has been around for over 150 years. So, something truly new is rare. Lingual braces, or braces that fit on the inside surface of your teeth, aren’t exactly new either. However, while lingual braces have been around for several decades, the level of sophisticated design necessary to make lingual braces practical has only recently arrived. That system is Incognito Braces from 3M Unitek.

At Saddle Creek Orthodontics in Germantown, TN, we are proud to now offer Incognito braces for patients who are very esthetically conscious. Incognito Hidden Braces are braces that fit on the inside of the teeth, and are completely invisible so you can confidently smile through every event that life has to offer — from special occasions to everyday joy. We recently bonded a case of Incognito braces in our office, and I wanted to share the experience with you. I made a short video detailing the process that you can watch below.


If you are interested in Incognito braces or other braces options (including Invisalign), please call us at (901) 244-4826 or contact us online. I hope you have a great week and I’ll talk to you soon!
