In-Ovation System Braces: The Pros & Cons

For a gentler, lower profile orthodontic treatment option, In-Ovation System self-ligating braces are great option. Here are some factors to consider before choosing In-Ovation.


There have been significant advances in orthodontics in recent years, and In-Ovation is one of them. While the best treatment choice for any give person will depend on that person's individual needs, In-Ovation is a popular option among our patients. Here's what to consider when it comes to In-Ovation.

How to Tell if In-Ovation is a Good Choice for You

One of the benefits of self-ligating braces like In-Ovation is that they are quite a bit smaller than traditional braces. This is the result of the sliding mechanism that self-ligating braces use to straighten teeth, instead of bands or ties.

We find that many of our In-Ovation braces patients experience less friction against the insides of their mouths when they first get their braces. This is probably because of the smaller size of these braces, which also makes them a bit easier to clean than traditional braces.

Another potential benefit is that sometimes, treatment with self-ligating braces can take less time than treatment with regular braces.

Please note that aside from the above features, self-ligating braces are actually pretty similar to regular braces, and even the difference in treatment duration is not significant.

in addition, although prices vary, self-ligating braces are somewhat more expensive than traditional braces are. It's up to you balance the difference in price with the added convenience and lower profile of In-Ovation braces, and decide if they're right for your needs.
