Want to kiss that crush, crush that meeting, and work that smirk without giving your teeth a second thought? All anyone will see with InBrace is a whole lot of you. And a whole lot of wow.
InBrace is made for the majority of cases like spacing, crowding, and bite. Check out our handy guide to see if InBrace is right for you.
When you look in the mirror do you see your front teeth bunched up, overlapping, or rotated? Commonly referred to as crowding, teeth positioned this way can be hard to brush and floss completely. Also did you know that crowded teeth can get worse over time?
Crowding refers to teeth that are bunched up, overlapping, or slightly rotated. This can make it hard to brush and floss and can get worse over time.
An open bite occurs when upper and lower teeth don’t touch when your mouth is closed, making it difficult to chew or bite into food.
A deep bite occurs when your front teeth excessively overlap your lower teeth. Correcting this can help your bite and restore a more natural smile and profile.
How does InBrace stack up against the others? Check out the chart below to compare InBrace with traditional options.
|Can you see it?||HOW Does it work?||How do I keep my teeth clean?||Is it comfortable?||Will it affect my speech?||What can I eat?||How often do I need to go to the orthodontist?||How long will it take?*|
|InBrace||Sits behind your teeth, completely concealed from the world.||The Smartwire works all of the time, like autopilot for your teeth.||Brush and floss normally during treatment.||Gentleforce technology uses light, consistent force to provide maximum comfort and movement. There may be temporary discomfort for 2 weeks, mostly in the first week.||Minimal adjustment period, but most people won’t notice.||Drink and snack away, but avoid hard, sticky, and chewy foods.||No monthly tightenings or tray changes needed. Appointments are usually scheduled every 6-8 weeks.||Start seeing results in just 2 weeks! Average treatment time = 8-18 months (most severe cases).|
|BRACES||Visible brackets and wires on your teeth.||Monthly tightening and aligning required.||Brush and floss after every meal; a floss threader is recommended to remove food from braces.||Temporary discomfort may be experienced at the beginning of treatment, and at each monthly tightening appointment.||Treatment does not affect speech.||Avoid hard, sticky, and chewy foods.||Monthly tightening/trimming required along with emergency visits for broken brackets and wires.||Average treatment = 18-22 months.|
|PLASTIC ALIGNERS||Translucent plastic around the teeth. “Nearly invisible” from a distance, but visible up close. More difficult cases also require attachments (aka buttons) on the front of teeth.||Aligners only work when you wear them. It's recommended to wear them 20-22 hours per day and require tray changes every 1-2 weeks for continued movement.||Aligners must be removed for brushing and flossing. Aligners also need to be cleaned regularly.||Aligners only work when they're on your teeth. Temporary discomfort is experienced at the beginning of treatment and at the beginning of each new aligner every 1-2 weeks.||May temporarily affect speech during treatment.||No eating or drinking while wearing aligners. Teeth must be brushed before you put them back on.||You are responsible for progress based on how often and long you wear your aligner. The leading aligner brand recommends patients visit a professional every 6-8 weeks for new trays.||Dependent on brand, how aligners are worn, and patient compliance. Assuming 22 hrs daily wear, average treatment time = 12-18 months**|

InBrace is FDA-registered and is currently only available in the United States. However, we are working hard on international clearance and hope to offer InBrace internationally soon.
It seems impossible to put a price on self-confidence, however InBrace is priced about the same as traditional braces and professional plastic aligners—but with shorter treatment times, predictable results, and a more comfortable experience. Most insurance covers up to $2,000, depending on your plan, and many InBrace providers offer flexible, affordable monthly payment plans.
|Professional aligners||$4-7k||12-18 months|
|Regular braces||$4-6k||18-22 months|
I could not be happier with the progress my teeth have made in such a short amount of time. I am now on my seventh month with InBrace, and have seen a huge difference in my smile. InBrace is a fast, effective, and easy treatment and I would highly recommend InBrace to anyone.— Ariana, Yoga Instructor, 29
The nice thing about having InBrace on the inside is that you can actually see the gradual change. When you’re wearing braces on the front, it’s really hard to notice the difference because the wires and the brackets are so distracting.— Dr. Amy G., Pediatric Dentist, 33
My friends have had professional aligners and they were hardly invisible. You could definitely see them. It's cool that InBrace is hidden behind my teeth — nobody can tell! But they can tell that I am smiling a lot more. It's the best!— Monica, Stylist, 27
I didn't want aligners because they are kinda gross. My friends would take out their aligners in front of me and they would be yellow or crusty. They would stuff them in their pockets or on napkins and then would just put them back in their mouths.— Tina, Student, 20
I work in a restaurant and I am tasting food all day. With professional aligners every time you eat and drink you are supposed to brush your teeth. There is no way I could do that. I like that it just works, I don't feel like I have to do anything.— Yvonne, Chef, 33
It seems impossible to put a price on finally feeling yourself, but this cost estimator will at least give you an idea of how much InBrace might cost. Remember to check with your dental insurance provider about coverage and your orthodontist about any possible payment plans.
