Other types of lingual braces
In cases where the patient does not want a complete orthodontic treatment (mean duration of two years), it is possible to use some other types of lingual braces from other orthodontic companies (for example G.A.C, Omcro, Leone) which are less expensive than those by Incognito. These stainless steel lingual braces are not individualized, and their indications are mainly for short duration treatments and for aesthetic improvement of the patient’s smile. The treatments done with these braces are either light crowding cases or relapses from previous orthodontic treatments in the anterior part of the dental arches (the so called social six treatments), ranging between 4-6 months. In cases where the patient desires a more complete but less expensive lingual treatment than Incognito, we may use ALIAS 3D self-ligating lingual brackets.
