Dr. Vo and the team work hard to ensure we have everything you need for a fantastic smile, which means the best innovations in the field. Speaking of innovations, there’s nothing quite like InBrace. It’s the amazing behind-the-teeth treatment that straightens your smile on autopilot! But what is it exactly? How does it work? And is InBrace right for you? We’re here to answer these questions and much more, so let’s get down to business! 


InBrace – What’s That? 

Great question! If you haven’t heard of InBrace, you’re not alone – it’s relatively new as far as orthodontic treatments go. Texas Family Orthodontics doesn’t chase trends, as we only offer treatment if it’s top-of-the-line, but that’s definitely the case with InBrace! Let’s take a look at some of the incredible benefits: 


Effortless Smile Transformation 

InBrace stands out for its ability to straighten your teeth virtually on autopilot. With InBrace, you can say goodbye to traditional braces that are noticeable and require frequent adjustments. Instead, InBrace employs a state-of-the-art behind-the-teeth approach, meaning customized brackets are discreetly placed on the back surface of your teeth, making them virtually invisible when you smile. The benefits aren’t only about looks, though! Since all that’s required for InBrace to work its magic is a simple Smartwire®, you don’t have to worry about bulky parts that break or rub against your lips and gums. Not only are you having your teeth straightened in style, but it’s way more comfortable! 

Personalized Treatment and Convenience 

Texas Family Orthodontics understands the value of your time, and we’re always working to provide you and your family with the most convenient treatment options. InBrace aligns perfectly with this philosophy. Since its powerful behind-the-teeth technology works so efficiently, you’ll enjoy way fewer office visits to adjust your appliance, and your treatment may be completed faster than you expected! That means you get a time-efficient orthodontic experience that’s hard to beat. Dr. Vo and her team will customize the treatment plan to address your specific needs so you get winning results while minimizing disruptions to your busy schedule. We always look forward to seeing your smiling face, but we want to make the best use of your precious time. And InBrace is perfect for that! 


Superior Oral Hygiene and Improved Dental Health

Maintaining excellent oral hygiene during orthodontic treatment is crucial, and InBrace helps you achieve just that. With the brackets placed on the inner surface of your teeth and a wire that curves between each tooth, you’re able to brush and floss like you always have. No more worrying about permanent white marks on the outside of your teeth. This hidden placement reduces the risk of plaque buildup, tooth decay, and gum problems, ultimately improving dental health throughout your treatment journey. 

There’s nothing quite like InBrace. It’s the amazing behind-the-teeth treatment that straightens your smile on autopilot!

Sounds Great! How Does InBrace Work? 

We’re not magicians, so we can reveal our secrets — the magic behind InBrace lies in the advanced Smartwire technology. The system uses custom-made, shape-memory wires designed to guide your teeth gradually into their ideal positions. Dr. Vo will customize them to your particular smile and bite, and the wires will apply a gentle and continuous force, reducing discomfort during the treatment process. Unlike traditional braces that need frequent manual adjustments, InBrace’s pre-programmed wires know how to deliver your teeth precisely the right amount of force throughout the treatment. That means it’s a remarkably efficient option. You’re not getting any more pressure on your teeth than needed to craft your healthy, winning smile. 


What Does InBrace Treat? 

InBrace treats all sorts of orthodontic issues and can address various dental misalignments. Some of the common problems that InBrace can effectively treat include:

  • Crooked Teeth: InBrace can straighten teeth that are misaligned, overlapping, or rotated, improving their alignment and creating a more harmonious smile.
  • Crowding: InBrace can help resolve crowding issues by gradually aligning and repositioning the teeth.
  • Spacing: InBrace effectively addresses gaps or spaces between teeth. The system can close the gaps by gently guiding the teeth into the desired positions.
  • Overbite: An overbite is a condition where the upper front teeth significantly overlap the lower front teeth. InBrace can help correct overbites by applying targeted forces to reposition the teeth and achieve a more balanced bite.
  • Underbite: Unlike an overbite, an underbite occurs when the lower teeth protrude forward beyond the upper teeth. InBrace can assist in correcting underbites by gradually moving the teeth into proper alignment.
  • Crossbite: Crossbite refers to a condition where the upper and lower teeth do not align properly when biting down. InBrace can help resolve crossbites by guiding the teeth into their correct positions, improving the bite relationship.


There’s nothing quite like InBrace. It’s the amazing behind-the-teeth treatment that straightens your smile on autopilot!
