Self-ligating lingual brackets have to be flat and flush to the tooth surface, and torque control has to be maximized. The custom-made lingual appliance Incognito fulfils this and incorporates a self-ligating slot, as well as a normal bracket slot, making it easier to place the initial archwire, especially in crowded cases.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the importance of torque control in lingual orthodontics to appreciate the complexity of self ligation
  • Understand the need to keep a self-ligating lingual bracket as flat as possible to ensure patient comfort
  • Clinically understand that self-ligating slots enable ease of placement of the initial wire, as well as enabling insertion of the wire in crowded cases
