Types of Braces

The Right Choice- Self-ligation


Why In-Ovation’s the right choice:

It is designed with patients in mind. In-Ovation has a cleaner, more aesthetic appearance than traditional braces so you can look your best both during and after treatment. Its unique Interactive™ technology allows your doctor to gently achieve the precise results needed for optimum facial proportion and harmony. In-Ovation was also designed for greater comfort with its smooth edges and a lower profile.

With In-Ovation, A Better Smile is Clear and Easy…

With In-Ovation system braces, achieving a beautiful, healthy smile is fast and comfortable… an altogether highly attractive process. Our patient-friendly design means that you have less chairtime, reduced discomfort and far fewer appointments than with older style braces. Plus you have the cosmetic benefits of self-ligation — braces that do not need ties or “O” rings that can collect food and moisture for a cleaner look and a healthier smile.

In-Ovation self-ligation system is gentle. It uses a free-sliding technology which places little to no pressure on your teeth. As a result, your treatment not only takes less time and requires fewer appointments but is far more comfortable than with traditional fixed-wire braces.

In-Ovation’s advantage over traditional braces…

  • Teeth are free to move faster and more easily
  • Fast results mean shorter treatment time
  • Shorter (and fewer) appointments
  • Smaller brackets for improved aesthetics and greater comfort
  • Better oral hygiene

In-Ovation® comes in three styles that look great and are comfortable to wear. Ask your doctor which In-Ovation® bracket is best for you!


  • In-Ovation® R is smaller and has a lower profile than other self-ligating brackets. With no elastic or metal ties, you will have less irritation, less plaque build-up, and less difficulty keeping your teeth clean.

  • In-Ovation® C is a translucent ceramic bracket that offers fast and comfortable treatment with the added benefit of high aesthetics.
  • In-Ovation® L MTM® offers a superb alternative to tray aligners for patients requiring 6mm of movement or less. Completely invisible, L MTM self-ligating “quick clips” work within a few short months to give you the perfect smile you have always wanted.



Consider Invisalign to get the beautiful straight teeth you’ve always wanted – without braces. A consultation with your doctor can determine if Invisalign is right for you.

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign uses a series of invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners that no one can tell you’re wearing. So you can smile more during treatment as well as after. Invisalign is made with 3D computer imaging technology and has been proven effective.

Why would I want Invisalign?

Not only are the aligners invisible, they are removable, so you can eat and drink what you want while in treatment. Plus, brushing and flossing are no problem. They are also comfortable, with no metal to cause mouth abrasions during treatment. And no metal and wires usually means you spend less time in your doctor’s office getting adjustments. Invisalign also allows you to view your own virtual treatment plan when you start so you can see how your straight teeth will look when your treatment is complete.

How does Invisalign work?

You wear each set of aligners for about two weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss. As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move — little by little, week by week — until they have straightened to the final position your doctor has prescribed. You’ll visit our practice about once every six weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned. Total treatment time averages 9-15 months and the average number of aligners worn during treatment is between 18 and 30, but both will vary from case to case.
