Orthodontist information

With Incognito braces you can offer your patients a system which will fully realise your treatment objectives. The brackets are individually produced for each patient using CAD/CAM technology and offer extremely high patient comfort due to their very low profile design. The treatment objective is established prior to treatment commencing and may be closely checked in the setup.

At 3M Unitek we are committed to helping you to grow your orthodontic practice. Below are the details of all the support that we can provide to help increase your patient uptake of Incognito cases.

Support offered includes:


Incognito™ Certification Course

This two day Incognito certification course for orthodontists will give you an introduction to the Incognito lingual bracket system. You will gain both the knowledge and the required certification to offer the Incognito appliance system as a treatment. You will be fully familiarised with the various tools, instruments and materials that are required to use the system. The focus of the course is on practical hands on typodont exercises, showing clearly how many different types of lingual cases may be treated. Orthodontic Therapists may also register for the certification course providing their orthodontist is attending the course or is already certified.
