How InBrace Works From Behind the Teeth

Orthodontic treatments have evolved rapidly, introducing innovative solutions that prioritize both efficiency and aesthetics. One such groundbreaking approach is InBrace. Unlike traditional orthodontic methods, InBrace works discreetly from behind the teeth, offering a virtually invisible treatment process. Massih Orthodontics in Glendale, CA, led by Dr. Karmen Massih, is proud to offer this state-of-the-art solution to its patients. Let’s delve deeper into how InBrace operates from behind the teeth and its advantages.

InBrace: The Basics

InBrace is a unique orthodontic system that employs Smartwires designed to work behind your teeth. This ensures that your orthodontic treatment remains entirely hidden from view. Here’s how it functions:

  1. Customized Smartwires: Using advanced technology, a 3D model of your teeth is developed, ensuring each Smartwire is tailored to your unique dental structure.
  2. Attachment: The Smartwires are discreetly attached to the back of your teeth. These wires use gentle force to move teeth into their desired positions.
  3. No Adjustments Required: Unlike traditional braces, which require periodic adjustments, InBrace’s design minimizes the need for constant tweaking, making the treatment more comfortable for the patient.

Why Choose InBrace?

  1. Aesthetic Appeal: Being positioned behind the teeth, InBrace offers a cosmetic advantage over traditional braces. Your orthodontic journey remains your little secret.
  2. Comfort: Since there’s no need for regular adjustments, patients experience less discomfort throughout the treatment.
  3. Easy Maintenance: InBrace doesn’t hinder regular brushing or flossing. The design allows for effective oral hygiene without the need for additional cleaning tools.
  4. Faster Results: The Smartwire technology ensures that teeth move efficiently to their intended positions, often resulting in faster treatment times compared to other orthodontic options.

Comparing InBrace with Other Orthodontic Solutions

While Invisalign and Traditional Metal or Clear Braces are popular choices, InBrace stands out due to its unique positioning and technology. Here’s a quick comparison:

  • Visibility: While Invisalign is clear and less noticeable than metal braces, it’s still visible. InBrace is entirely hidden, giving it a distinct edge in terms of aesthetics.
  • Maintenance: Traditional braces require meticulous cleaning, and Invisalign aligners need to be removed before eating or drinking. InBrace allows for effortless oral hygiene without any special routines.
  • Treatment Time: While each case is unique, InBrace often offers quicker results due to its advanced technology and customized approach.

Expertise Matters

The success of any orthodontic treatment largely depends on the expertise of the orthodontist. Dr. Karmen Massih and her team at Massih Orthodontics bring a wealth of experience in dealing with InBrace and other orthodontic solutions. Their commitment to patient satisfaction and their keen understanding of the latest technologies ensure that you get the best possible treatment in Glendale, CA.
