Is InBrace®right for me?
Want to kiss that crush, crush that meeting, and work that smirk without giving your teeth a second thought? All anyone will see with InBrace is a whole lot of you. And a whole lot of wow.
Your little secret. Our Smartwire sits discreetly behind your teeth so no one will ever know it’s there except for you and your orthodontist. (Said no one ever about braces or aligners.)
Results ASAP. Don’t wait a day longer to show the world your new look. You’ll start seeing visible results in about 2 weeks that will only get better as treatment progresses.
License to live. Go ahead—sip that coffee, kiss that cutie, lean in closer. With InBrace, you can eat, drink, brush, floss, and carry on as usual while in treatment.
More you time. InBrace continually self-adjusts, reducing office time and overall treatment time with an average of just 2 wires. So you can do more life stuff and less treatment stuff.
Less ick. No metal mouth. No visible stains. No dozens of trays. No shoving your hand in your mouth to remove aligners. No losing said aligners. No thanks.
Less pain, more gains. Zero tray refittings. No uncomfortable monthly tightenings. InBrace is everything other straightening systems aren’t—including completely hidden.
InBrace is made for the majority of cases like spacing, crowding, and bite. Check out our handy guide to see if InBrace is right for you.
Spacing – When you look in the mirror do you see space between your teeth? Food can get stuck in between your teeth leading to plaque build-up. Excess space can also cause broken or chipped teeth.
Crowding refers to teeth that are bunched up, overlapping, or slightly rotated. This can make it hard to brush and floss and can get worse over time.
Open bite occurs when upper and lower teeth don’t touch when your mouth is closed, making it difficult to chew or bite into food.
Over bite refers to A deep bite occurs when your front teeth excessively overlap your lower teeth. Correcting this can help your bite and restore a more natural smile and profile.
Underbite is when your lower teeth jut out in front of your upper teeth. It can be uncomfortable, even painful, make it hard to chew or speak properly and cause teeth to wear down more quickly.
A league of our own.

|CAN YOU SEE IT?||HOW DOES IT WORK?||HOW DO I KEEP MY TEETH CLEAN?||IS IT COMFORTABLE?||WILL IT AFFECT MY SPEECH?||WHAT CAN I EAT?||HOW OFTEN DO I NEED TO GO TO THE ORTHODONTIST?||HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE?*|
|InBrace||Sits behind your teeth, completely concealed from the world.||The Smartwire works all of the time, like autopilot for your teeth.||Brush and floss normally during treatment.||Gentleforce technology uses light, consistent force to provide maximum comfort and movement. There may be temporary discomfort for 2 weeks, mostly in the first week.||Minimal adjustment period, but most people won’t notice.||Drink and snack away, but avoid hard, sticky, and chewy foods.||No monthly tightenings or tray changes needed. Appointments are usually scheduled every 6-8 weeks.||Start seeing results in just 2 weeks! Average treatment time = 8-18 months (most severe cases).|
|BRACES||Visible brackets and wires on your teeth.||Monthly tightening and aligning required.||Brush and floss after every meal; a floss threader is recommended to remove food from braces.||Temporary discomfort may be experienced at the beginning of treatment, and at each monthly tightening appointment.||Treatment does not affect speech.||Avoid hard, sticky, and chewy foods.||Monthly tightening/trimming required along with emergency visits for broken brackets and wires.||Average treatment = 18-22 months.|
|PLASTIC ALIGNERS||Translucent plastic around the teeth. “Nearly invisible” from a distance, but visible up close. More difficult cases also require attachments (aka buttons) on the front of teeth.||Aligners only work when you wear them. It’s recommended to wear them 20-22 hours per day and require tray changes every 1-2 weeks for continued movement.||Aligners must be removed for brushing and flossing. Aligners also need to be cleaned regularly.||Aligners only work when they’re on your teeth. Temporary discomfort is experienced at the beginning of treatment and at the beginning of each new aligner every 1-2 weeks.||May temporarily affect speech during treatment.||No eating or drinking while wearing aligners. Teeth must be brushed before you put them back on.||You are responsible for progress based on how often and long you wear your aligner. The leading aligner brand recommends patients visit a professional every 6-8 weeks for new trays.||Dependent on brand, how aligners are worn, and patient compliance. Assuming 22 hrs daily wear, average treatment time = 12-18 months**|

How much does InBrace cost?
It seems impossible to put a price on self-confidence, however InBrace is priced about the same as traditional braces and professional plastic aligners—but with shorter treatment times, predictable results, and a more comfortable experience. Most insurance covers up to $2,000, depending on your plan, and many InBrace providers offer flexible, affordable monthly payment plans.
|Professional aligners||$4-7k||12-18 months|
|Regular braces||$4-6k||18-22 months|
Based on averages. Treatment times and final costs vary depending on case severity and specifics. Consult your local InBrace provider for costs.
