InBrace is the first to introduce the use of the revolutionary Programmed Non-Sliding Mechanics process for moving teeth. Its proprietary Smartwire™ has been designed and fabricated with AI and Gentleforce™ Technology to deliver a superior experience that provides fast results and healthy tooth movement, while being completely hidden behind the teeth. Each Smartwire™ is personalized for each mouth and is made from a programmable memory wire that gently works behind the teeth while allowing patients to eat, drink, brush, and floss normally. InBrace is orthodontics on autopilot. InBrace moves teeth without the painful monthly tightenings or frequent changing of plastic aligners required with traditional options.
