INBRACE Announces National Certification Training Program

May 15, 2019

IRVINE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 15, 2019--

INBRACE® announced today the launch of the company’s national certification training program with its first course, “Introduction to Programmed Non-Sliding Mechanics” to be held on May 17 at The Cove in UC Irvine’s Applied Innovation Center. INBRACE is an entirely new method of moving teeth, and certified training will help improve national availability by expanding representation in major metropolitan service areas across the US. A full certification training schedule for 2019 will be announced next month.

Introduction to Programmed Non-Sliding Mechanics speaks directly to the innovations that set INBRACE apart from all other orthodontic treatments. The INBRACE digital platform enables patented Smartwires ® to be programmed and personalized for each patient’s unique smile. By eliminating mechanical friction, INBRACE non-sliding mechanics deliver continuous, low-force tooth movement, which improves oral health and treatment efficiency.

“The clinical benefits of using gentle forces to move teeth have been known to orthodontists for years, but no solution has been able to do so consistently until INBRACE,” said Matthew O’Connell, senior VP of sales for INBRACE. “We estimate that INBRACE delivers as little as 5 grams of force to move teeth, giving the body time to adjust and naturally retain healthy roots. These critical differences make INBRACE an entirely new treatment category within orthodontics.”

For more than 100 years, orthodontic treatment has been based on sliding mechanics, where archwires slide into brackets and bends in the archwire move teeth. While effective, orthodontists know that sliding mechanics use excessive force, require frequent adjustments and result in root loss and patient discomfort. By using non-sliding mechanics and gentle-force tooth movement, INBRACE creates a more biologically sensible solution that nearly eliminates the factors that cause root loss.

Limited space is still available for orthodontists interested in learning more about INBRACE innovations and programmed, non-sliding mechanics. Simply go to learn.myinbrace.com and register to participate.

About INBRACE

Hidden behind your teeth, INBRACE is the new name for truly invisible orthodontic treatment. The patented Smartwire system with Gentleforce™ technology features an innovative design tailored to each patient’s unique anatomy that delivers a combination of patient and doctor benefits. Smartwires promote oral hygiene and help maintain overall oral health by allowing patients to brush and floss normally. Patients report loving the invisibility and convenience of INBRACE compared to plastic aligners, which require removal, cleaning and reinsertion after meals, snacks and drinks. Orthodontists appreciate the health benefits of low-force tooth movement mechanics, unobstructed oral hygiene and the absence of patient compliance issues, which often hinder results with plastic aligner therapy.
