Self-ligating braces do not require the use of elastics or o-ties to hold the wire in place, like traditional braces do. This means fewer appointments and less friction being placed on the tooth. Self-ligating braces come with traditional metal, ceramic, or clear brackets. They are the same size as metal braces, but use a specialized clip in place of elastics to help the archwire guide teeth into place. The clip helps reduce the amount of pressure being placed on the tooth, and requires fewer adjustments because there are no elastics to replace.
Your choice for a beautiful smile.
We happily offer our patients In-Ovation System braces.
In-Ovation is a new and technically advanced system that can give you the radiant smile you have always wanted more quickly than traditional braces, and without the need for, unsanitary, and uncomfortable ties or elastics. Best of all, there's never a need to have your braces tightened! Using light, gentle forces, In-Ovation makes the path to a beautiful smile faster and more comfortable than you ever thought possible!
Elastics and ties used in older braces put pressure and friction on teeth which slows treatment and causes discomfort.
With the In-Ovation R system, teeth are free to move more quickly, easily, and comfortably.

Attractive Advantages For You
In-Ovation comes in three styles that look great and are comfortable to wear. Ask your doctor which In-Ovation bracket is best for you!
- In-Ovation® R is a metal bracket that is smaller and has a lower profile than other self-ligating brackets. With no elastic or metal ties, you will have less irritation, less plaque build-up, and less difficulty keeping your teeth clean.
- In-Ovation® C is a translucent ceramic bracket that offers fast and comfortable treatment with the added benefit of high aesthetics.
- MTM® No•Trace™uses a low profile bracket that rests on the back side of the teeth (lingual) to achieve minor tooth movement. It offers a superb alternative to tray aligners for patients requiring 6mm of movement or less. Completely invisible, MTM self-ligating “quick clips” work within a few short months to give you the perfect smile you have always wanted.
