Dr. Sherif Elhady, Dr. Zahra Hassantash and Dr. Davina Bailey may recommend In-Ovation® braces if you are looking for faster orthodontic treatment. This system of self-ligating braces is designed to reduce your overall treatment time and give you a more comfortable experience with less oral irritation or plaque build-up.
Self-ligating braces are designed using a special slide mechanism rather than metal or elastic ties. This eliminates the need for a band to hold the archwire of your braces in place. Instead, the wire is held in place with a clip or moveable door, which works to automatically adjust the wire as needed to move your teeth. This results in fewer trips to Trü Orthodontics to have your braces adjusted and speeds up your treatment to straighten your teeth more quickly.
In-Ovation braces also make it easy for you to brush and floss effectively, reducing your risk of developing cavities or another problem during your treatment. While In-Ovation braces are less obvious than traditional braces due to the absence of bands and ties, clear brackets are also available to give you a more discreet treatment option.
Through consultation with our orthodontists and team, you can also decide which style of In-Ovation braces is the correct option for you:
In-Ovation R braces use metal clips that function in place of the brackets and bands used in traditional braces. They also have a lower rate of plaque build-up during treatment when compared to traditional braces, making oral hygiene a little simpler.
In-Ovation C braces are less conspicuous than metal braces using translucent ceramic brackets that blend in with the teeth themselves.
In-Ovation MTM uses brackets that are adhered to the backside of your teeth, making them much less visible to the casual viewer. Most people will not even be able to tell that you have braces.
