What is InBrace?
InBrace is a cutting-edge orthodontic treatment that combines the benefits of traditional braces and Invisalign. Unlike other types of braces, InBrace remains completely hidden behind your teeth – allowing you to get the smile of your dreams without the look of metal braces or aligners.


How does InBrace work?
The Smartwire is the core structure for InBrace. It’s customized for your unique tooth alignment, and uses Gentleforce technology to gently move your teeth into their ideal positions. Unlike traditional braces, there are no monthly tightenings or tray changes with InBrace.

When you get started with InBrace, we create a 3D image of your mouth using your InBrace Toothprint™. Then together, we CoDesign your desired smile. Finally, you will leave your fitting appointment with InBrace, with the personalized Smartwire discreetly in place.


Is InBrace truly invisible?
Absolutely! Because InBrace is worn behind your teeth, the appliance is completely invisible to others. You will be able to confidently smile, speak, and laugh – all without anyone noticing you’re undergoing orthodontic treatment.


Does InBrace work for all malocclusions?
Yes! InBrace effectively treats all types of malocclusions (improperly aligned teeth), from simple movements to more complex cases. InBrace can discreetly treat a variety orthodontic issues – from crowding and spacing to misalignment.


Who is a good candidate for InBrace?
Anyone looking for orthodontic treatments can consider InBrace – especially patients seeking more discreet options. When you schedule your free consultation, you’ll meet with either of our board-certified orthodontists, Dr. Matthew Ahrens or Dr. Mary Awadallah, to determine your custom treatment plan and if InBrace is right for you.


Are there any monthly tightenings?
No. One of the key benefits of InBrace is it eliminates the need for monthly adjustments. Your personalized Smartwire guides your ongoing treatment, ensuring consistent progress without the need for frequent appointments.


Can I eat normally with InBrace?
Yes! Another benefit of this treatment is InBrace allows you to eat, drink, brush, and floss normally. Unlike other options, there are no dietary restrictions or removable trays to worry about.
