Tustin Orthodontist

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.

    Who is InBrace for?

    InBrace treats all type of malocclusions from simple to complex cases, InBrace straightens teeth without embarrassing wires or inconvenient aligners.

    Eat Normally

    With no messy trays to pop out before you indulge, you can eat whatever you want.

    Slip Away

    Start your day with a big ol' cup of joe or your favorite tea. With nothing to remove, your treatment continues while you drink.

    Autopilot = More You Time

    Your Smartwire starts moving your teeth gently into place from day one - like autopilot. So you can do more life stuff and less treatment stuff.

    Instant Confidence

    You'll start seeing results as soon as two weeks. Get ready to love looking in the mirror, or any reflective surface for that matter (we won't judge!)

    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.

    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:

  • Needing to keep up oral hygiene
  • Adjust to changes in speech
  • Continuing to avoid certain foods
  • 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.
