Why InBrace Is Different

The Smartwire is unlike anything else; instead of attaching to the visible parts of your teeth, this treatment takes advantage of the interior surfaces of your teeth to be much less visible, yet it is just as effective as traditional braces and clear aligners. This advanced approach also allows us to continue straightening teeth with fewer in-office adjustments and deliver awe-inspiring results with less time and effort.

Benefits of InBrace

Less Pain, More Gain

Zero tray refittings. No painful monthly tightenings. InBrace is everything other straightening systems aren’t - including completely hidden.

How InBrace Works

Shifting teeth requires putting some amount of force on teeth. However, this completely unique Smartwire utilizes GentleForce™ technology to make the process as smooth and pain free as possible.

InBrace FAQs

You may be thinking that InBrace lingual braces in South Loop seem too good to be true, but they really are as wonderful as they seem! But we understand if you have questions about this treatment. In fact, we invite you to ask us anything you’d like to know during your consultation. Also, you can check out our responses to some common questions about this treatment. We’re here to help you achieve your goal of a straight smile using the procedure that’s perfect for you and your lifestyle.

Am I a Good Candidate for InBrace?

To qualify for InBrace treatment, you need to have healthy teeth and gums, meaning you can’t have gum disease or any cavities. Beyond that, basically anyone can take advantage of this procedure because it can be used to correct all types of misalignment including bite issues like open bite, underbite, and overbite. When you meet with us, we will be thorough in our examination and review your options. Chances are that InBrace is a real possibility!

Will InBrace Affect My Ability to Speak?

For most patients, InBrace treatment has a minimal impact on speech. Being on the inside surface of your teeth, InBrace could alter how your tongue is able to interact with your teeth. There may be a short adjustment period after starting the procedure when you notice a slight difference, but you can quickly adapt. Most of the time, those around the InBrace patient do not notice any changes in speech at all.

Are There Any Food Limitations with InBrace?

Overall, you have about the same food restrictions with InBrace as you would with traditional braces; to avoid getting food stuck in your InBrace wire, you should stay away from overly hard, sticky, or chewy foods. These types of foods can not only interfere with the wires, but they can also increase your risk of cavities during treatment. That’s why it’s so important to follow our instructions about maintenance and your diet!

Does Dental Insurance Cover InBrace Treatment?

Insurance coverage can be tricky to understand. When it comes to InBrace, benefits may apply to this treatment just like other orthodontic treatments. Our lingual braces usually cost only slightly more than ceramic braces or aligners. In other words, it’s very reasonable! However, it’s always a good idea to check with your provider prior to starting any treatment so that you are aware of your out-of-pocket costs. If you have questions or would like further explanation or clarification, our team can try to help you as well.
