How are lingual braces made?
The Incognito™ and Win™ lingual appliances are both completely customised lingual appliances. This means that the brackets and the archwires are made to fit the individual patient. This both increases the comfort of the appliance, and means that the appliance consistently delivers the desired high quality treatment result.
The Incognito™ lingual appliance is constructed as follows. Either impressions or a digital scan of the patient’s teeth are made. This record is then sent to the incognito laboratory in Germany.

The teeth are then either set up on a plaster model manually , or set up on a digital (Virtual) model according to the detailed instructions given by Dr Buckley.
