In-Ovation® FAQs


How long does treatment take?

In-Ovation System braces use of interactive self-ligating technology means your treatment can progress faster with fewer appointments than traditional brackets with ties. 

What makes In-Ovation braces different?

In-Ovation braces are self-ligating brackets. That means they use a clip that is built into the bracket to hold the wire in place. It works with the wire to control movements during alignment. Traditional braces use elastic ties or wire to hold the wire tightly in place which can cause more friction and discomfort.

Are In-Ovation System braces comfortable?

Many In-Ovation System patients are surprised by how comfortable they are and that there is little discomfort overall. That is because of the low-profile, low-friction orthodontic system design gently corrects alignment issues. When beginning the treatment, the braces may feel a little foreign in your mouth, however, most people stop noticing after a day or two.

Can adults benefit from treatment with In-Ovation System braces?

Most people think of orthodontics as a procedure for children, but everyone can benefit from an improved smile. Properly aligned teeth contribute to healthy teeth and gums and can help prevent more serious health problems. Improperly aligned teeth can make cleaning and brushing more difficult and lead to tooth decay, gum disease and possibly tooth loss. Misaligned teeth can also lead to stress on the jaw muscles and excessive wear of the enamel, negatively affecting the long-term health of the teeth and supporting bone structure.

How much do In-Ovation System braces cost?

The cost of treatment will vary depending on treatment and you will need to discuss that with our office. More and more insurance providers have some sort of orthodontic coverage to help off-set the total cost as well.
