How to Tell if In-Ovation is a Good Choice for You
One of the benefits of self-ligating braces such as In-Ovation is that they are substantially smaller than traditional braces. This is because they use a sliding mechanism instead of bands or ties.
We often find that our In-Ovation braces patients experience less friction against the insides of their mouths when they first get braces. This is likely due to the smaller size of these braces, and this also makes self-ligating braces a bit easier to clean than traditional braces.
Another potential benefit is that in certain cases, treatment with self-ligating braces can take less time than treatment with regular braces.
Other than the above factors, self-ligating braces are pretty similar to regular braces, and even the difference in treatment duration is not significant.
Please also note that though prices vary, self-ligating braces are typically 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.
