The InStudio experience

We want you to live your best life from the beginning of the experience all the way through the end because we believe it’s the journey that counts – not just the outcome.

InStudio is an experience center that shares insights with the entire provider community so everyone can benefit from our breakthrough approach to orthodontic treatment.

Designed for you.
Made for real life.TM

With InBrace there are no painful monthly tightenings or tray changes. You’re free to eat, drink, brush and floss as usual while in treatment. The best part? The tiny Smartwire® is completely hidden behind your teeth. So while it’s busy straightening your teeth, no one will even know you’re in treatment.

How does InBrace work?

1. Toothprint

Your InBrace Toothprint is scanned by a provider who creates a 3D image of the inside of your mouth. Your Toothprint is used to personalize your Smartwire for the results you want.

2. CoDesign

We CoDesign your ideal smile with your InBrace provider. InBrace programs your Smartwire with Gentleforce® technology to gently move teeth into place.

3. Fitting

Your InBrace provider fits you with your personalized Smartwire, and you leave your fitting – InBraced. Treatment is completely hidden (even up close) so you can show the world your Smile Now™.

Treatment Guide

Want to straighten your teeth without braces or aligners? InBrace is made for all types of cases from simple to complex.




When you look in the mirror do you see space between your teeth? Food can get stuck in between your teeth leading to plaque build-up. Excess space can also cause broken or chipped teeth.




Crowding refers to teeth that are bunched up, overlapping, or slightly rotated. This can make it hard to brush and floss and can get worse over time.


Open Bite

Open Bite

An open bite occurs when upper and lower teeth don’t touch when your mouth is closed, making it difficult to chew or bite into food.




A deep bite occurs when your front teeth excessively overlap your lower teeth. Correcting this can help your bite and restore a more natural smile and profile.




An underbite is when your lower teeth jut out in front of your upper teeth. It can be uncomfortable, even painful, make it hard to chew or speak properly and cause teeth to wear down more quickly.
