What is the In-Ovation System?
The In-Ovation braces system is an established orthodontic technology that is constantly evolving and improving, and it is the perfect option for our on-the-go patients.
This system helps our orthodontists achieve beautifully straight smiles and it allows patients to spend little time in the dental chair at each visit and have fewer overall orthodontic adjustment appointments. This braces system offers all these benefits and more.
Utilizing state-of-the-art, self-ligating technology, the teeth are discreetly moved into their intended place with ease.
Although the system functions similarly to traditional braces, the use of technologically advanced self-ligating brackets and wires makes all the difference in the patient treatment experience. This includes ceramic, Damon and metal braces self-ligating options.
What are Self-Ligating Braces?
Self-ligating braces work seamlessly to stabilize the archwire as the patient’s teeth straighten. This is done without the need for colored ties traditionally used to secure the wire to the braces.
In-Ovation brackets hold the archwire firmly in place. As the teeth move, however, the brackets allow the archwire to easily self-adjust.
Employing a gliding mechanism, the wire moves effortlessly through the brackets, applying gentle and continuous pressure to the teeth as progress is made.
This cutting-edge interaction negates the need for frequent visits to the orthodontist for adjustments, making for a convenient, easy treatment experience.
At Burke & Redford Orthodontists, convenience and comfort are set as top priorities when working with all our patients. Our board-certified doctors specialize in choosing the best option for each individual patient based on their needs and schedule.
What Options Does the In-Ovation System Offer?
Everyone will have varying needs, so there are several options available when it comes to the type of In-Ovation bracket used.
Each bracket is slightly unique, but all can be very effective when in the right hands.
- In-Ovation R:
Made of stainless steel, this is the original bracket of choice for most patients. Both reliable and durable, it corrects crooked teeth with precision and ease.
- In-Ovation C:
This design is the same as the R brackets in every way except the material used to make them. Clear ceramic material is used to offer patients nearly invisible braces. It is the ideal choice for those aiming for aesthetics without compromising quality. White colored wires are often used in tandem with In-Ovation C brackets.
- In-Ovation Mini:
Around 23% smaller than other brackets, the mini is low-profile and offers improved aesthetics to prospective patients. We do not really use these brackets in our practice due the greater control In-Ovation R and In-Ovation C brackets provide.
- In-Ovation L:
Another option for those wanting braces without the look of having them are the In-Ovation L brackets. Unlike the other choices, these are attached to the back of the teeth where they are completely out of sight. These are also known as lingual braces.
- MTM No-Trace:
Used to fix and correct the most minor of dental issues, the No-Trace brackets are small and discreet. Bonded to the back of the teeth, such braces are virtually undetectable. These are another form of lingual braces and are only used in simple cases.
What Does This System Treat?
Like other braces, the In-Ovation braces system helps orthodontists address key orthodontic and dental issues, such as crooked teeth, difficulty maintaining good oral hygiene, and improper bites (malocclusions).
Crooked teeth are arguably the most common reason why braces are sought out. Crooked teeth usually first become apparent during the transition from baby to adult teeth during childhood. For most people, crowding and crookedness of teeth is often progressive, getting worse with time.
Crooked, overcrowded teeth can contribute to poor oral health. Bacteria and plaque build-up can form in crevices between teeth and around the gums.
Periodontal disease, gingivitis, and tooth decay are common consequences of poor oral health.
Malocclusions can come about in countless ways. Inherited jaw size mismatches are the most common cause; thumb sucking during childhood and teeth that have simply erupted out of their proper position are other causes.
Overbites, underbites, open bites, and crossbites are all classified under the term of malocclusion.

What Are the Benefits?
The benefits of such groundbreaking orthodontic appliances are attractive to a diverse number of patients.
Listed below are some advantages of choosing an orthodontist who uses the In-Ovation system:
- Less time in the office:
Having In-Ovation braces adjusted is comfortable and efficient. Gone are the days of “tightening” the braces during the periodic adjustment appointments. Instead, the doors on each of the braces are opened, the wire is gently adjusted, and the doors are re-closed. This takes less time than the traditional changing of colored ties.
- Increased comfort:
Compared to most types of braces, In-Ovation are very “low-profile”. This means the braces are close to the surface of the teeth, increasing comfort to the patient’s lips and cheeks.
- Less frequent visits to the orthodontist:
Contrary to traditional braces that require frequent adjustment, In-Ovation braces do not require elastic ties that degrade and need replacement. These self-ligating brackets, in combination with the innovative wires used, put constant gentle pressure on the teeth over extended periods of time. For this reason, appointments are only needed every 8 weeks or so, as opposed to the typical 4-to-6-week schedule in the traditional orthodontic setting. For patients with busy schedules, this is an attractive benefit.
- Enhanced appearance:
In-Ovation brackets are small and sleek. For patients who want an inconspicuous braces options, the clear In-Ovation C brackets with white wires are nearly imperceptible.
What is the Average Cost?
The average cost of treatment is based upon the complexity of treatment.
Before braces are applied, a free orthodontic consultation will be conducted where a patient can experience the office atmosphere in a relaxed way, as well as have an opportunity to meet one of the doctors and some staff members. We want patients to feel completely comfortable with the doctors, staff, office environment, treatment plan, and financial costs before beginning treatment.
During the free consultation, all questions about the financial aspects of treatment can be discussed, including what is included, how much it will cost, and options for payment. This way, there are no surprises once treatment begins.
In many cases, insurance benefits help to offset the overall cost of treatment. Our office staff will perform a complimentary check with your insurance provider to see how insurance benefits will affect the overall cost of treatment. Being able to maximize these benefits helps to create an affordable treatment plan. We can help process and file claims on our patient’s behalf.
Our staff have 20+ years of experience with insurance billing and making sure treatment is as affordable as possible. Any questions regarding fees and payments may be directed to our office.
