While straighter teeth provide a more uniform appearance, they also boost a patient’s oral health by making it easier to clean the teeth. With a variety of possible orthodontic options for straightening teeth, we can help patients find the option that meets their needs and lifestyle. InBrace is a form of teeth straightening treatment that involves placing a wire on the backside of teeth for a truly invisible and convenient straightening process.
InBrace is offered at FitSmiles Orthodontics in Tustin and the surrounding area. Dr. Hany Youssef, D.D.S., M.S. is a top elite provider for InBrace in the country.

How InBrace Works
Customized Smartwire Moves Your Teeth With GentleForce™ Technology
An orthodontist will scan and create a 3D image of the inside of your mouth to personalize your Smartwire™ for predictable results.
InBrace will program your Smartwire™ with Gentleforce technology based on your orthodontist’s treatment plan. So your teeth start moving gently into place---like autopilot.
3. Smile Now
Let the WOW begin! You can start smiling on day 1 because InBrace is completely concealed (even up close). And there are no painful monthly tightenings or tray changes required, so while the Smartwire™ is back there doing its thing, you can keep doing your thing.
The Smartwire™ is Unlike Anything Else…..
A comfortable experience with results that show sooner and a treatment that understands you’ve got bigger things to do.
Behind Your Teeth
Your personalized Smartwire™ sits behind your teeth so only you and your orthodontist know it’s there.
Smartwires™ are programmed to deliver gentle, continuous forces – just like autopilot for your mouth.
License to Live
Go ahead – sip that coffee, kiss that cutie, lean in closer. With InBrace, you can eat, drink, brush, floss and carry on as usual while in treatment.
No metal mouth. No visible stains. No dozens of trays. No shoving your hand in your mouth to remove aligners. No losing aligners.
More YOU Time!
InBrace continually self-adjusts reducing office time and overall treatment time with an average of 12 months, with treatment time that's half the time of other options. So you can do more life stuff and less treatment stuff.
Less Pain – More Gain
InBrace is everything that other straightening systems aren’t – including completely hidden.
- Less Pain, More Gain.
- Zero tray refittings.
- No painful monthly tightenings.
What you need to know about InBrace
As an orthodontist, Dr. Hany Youssef, D.D.S., M.S. will work with the team at FitSmiles Orthodontics to help patients remain comfortable during the placement of the InBrace wire. Following treatment, we will need to review a few factors of this treatment with the patient. While InBrace uses advanced technology to correct teeth alignment, there are still steps that patients need to complete throughout the treatment process. These can include:
Keeping up oral hygiene
Even though InBrace is on the backside of the teeth, the patient needs to continue regular brushing and flossing. Patients need to maintain their oral health, no matter what teeth straightening treatment they are using. Fortunately, brushing and flossing with InBrace does not require any changes to brushing twice per day and flossing at least once per day.
The patient does not need to remove anything or spend money on special tools for brushing and flossing. It may be beneficial to use a softer toothbrush and be gentle around the wire on the back of the teeth, but otherwise, the patient can continue with the same routine.
Adjust to changes in speech
Similar to other teeth-straightening methods, InBrace will alter the patient’s speech slightly. However, the patient will begin to adjust to it after a few weeks. The impact on the patient’s speech will vary per each patient.
Continuing to avoid certain foods
As an orthodontist, we can guide the patient on certain foods that will risk damaging the teeth or interfere with the straightening process. While wearing InBrace, patients will need to avoid hard, sticky and chewy foods. Things like taffy, gum, nuts, chips and other types of candy. During the treatment, we can go over the other foods that people will need to avoid.
Eating these foods can risk damaging or shifting the wire, which will cause pain and prolong the treatment process.
