Self-ligating brackets utilize (sliding-door) technology known as "self-ligation" that allow the wires to slide back and forth within the bracket. No elastic or steel ties are used with self ligating brackets. This technology creates less friction and results in greater comfort for the patient. In addition, self ligating braces often reduce both treatment time and the number of adjustments that are usually performed.
In-Ovation “R” is a revolutionary new system of braces that is not only faster for your orthodontist to use, it also can significantly shorten treatment time. It’s great-looking and smaller for greater comfort. Plus, it offers better hygiene than conventional braces.
In-Ovation “C” is a self-ligating bracket, which allows more control during treatment than more traditional brackets. The difference is that they are smaller in size but also stronger and more efficient because they have a built-in clip that holds the archwires in place without the need for wire or elastic ties. This allows for greater overall attractiveness, increased comfort and a more reliable product.
In-Ovation C braces provide patients with a beautiful, healthy smile in less time than traditional braces. Their special design also provides for greater comfort and fewer appointments. Plus their ceramic translucency helps to camouflage the appearance of braces allowing you to maintain the natural beauty of your smile.
