Understanding InBrace Orthodontic Technology

Choosing to get orthodontic treatment to straighten your smile is a big milestone, and we’re so happy to be along for the ride! When most people think of orthodontics, however, they think of traditional braces. Fortunately, advancements in technology have made a wide range of treatment options possible, and InBrace Hidden Braces are one of them! 

Understanding InBrace orthodontic technology is easy with the team at Alba Orthodontics on your side. Keep reading to learn more about this revolutionary treatment option! 

All About InBrace

InBrace is a flexible treatment option designed with comfort and discretion in mind. Often called the “behind the teeth, teeth-straightener,” this appliance uses a custom wire that fits over brackets glued to the back of your teeth. This wire gently pulls your teeth into alignment over time. 

Like braces, InBrace corrects your smile using a specialized SmartWire. Like Invisalign, it aligns your teeth without attracting notice. InBrace is the best of both worlds. 

Before Dr. Fred or Dr. Jeff recommend InBrace, they scan your mouth using a 3D imaging system called a “Toothprint.” This image allows Alba Orthodontics to customize your InBrace “SmartWire,” the name for the special technology that makes up the appliance. Once we craft your SmartWire, your doctor will apply custom-positioned brackets to the back of your teeth, insert the wire into the brackets, and voila! You can leave our office showing off your smile. All the while, it’s getting straighter by the day. 

Benefits of InBrace Hidden Braces

InBrace comes with a series of different benefits designed to give you the best treatment possible. 

Practically Invisible

InBrace is the only treatment option of its kind that can claim it is truly hidden! While it’s not technically invisible, InBrace flies so well under the radar that it might as well be. Because your InBrace SmartWire fits behind your teeth rather than on the front, no one but you and your orthodontist will know you’re being treated. 

Treatment with traditional metal braces leaves your smile shiny and noticeable. Everyone knows you’re going through orthodontic treatment, which means it usually isn’t the best option for people who want to keep their treatment a secret. With InBrace, treatment is so unnoticeable that you can’t see it ever — even up close! 

State-of-the-Art Design

What makes InBrace different from other treatments is its patented SmartWire design. Methods like Invisalign or metal braces require tray changes and regular adjustments. With InBrace, once the appliance is attached to the back of your teeth, you don’t have to worry about it again until your smile is completely straight. All you’ll need to do is visit our Mechanicsburg office once every eight to ten weeks so Dr. Fred or Dr. Jeff can ensure your plan is on track for progress.

Better Oral Hygiene

One of the biggest obstacles when dealing with traditional metal braces is cleaning around the brackets and wires to keep the teeth as white as they are straight. Learning to use all the special tools to floss and brush with traditional braces can be nerve-wracking. 

When you choose InBrace from Alba Orthodontics, you don’t have to worry about relearning how to take care of your teeth! Because the SmartWire rests on the back of your teeth, you can brush and floss like normal, meaning you have a better chance of keeping your teeth cleaner than you would with braces.

Great for All Ages

Did you know that one in five orthodontic patients is over 18? There’s no shame in getting a later start on orthodontic treatment, but if you’re an older teen or an adult, you’re probably looking for the most convenient and attractive option for straightening your teeth. You aren’t looking for flashy metal braces, and you probably don’t find changing the color of your braces very cool anymore. That’s okay! InBrace is the mature treatment option that works for all ages to give you the smile you want. 

Who Is a Good Candidate for InBrace?

Not all orthodontic treatment programs are designed for everyone. Fortunately, that is not the case with InBrace! InBrace hidden braces will work to correct most, if not all, orthodontic conditions, from mild to severe malocclusions and everything in between. InBrace works to correct spacing, crowding, and bite problems so that you can feel confident in your smile.
