a smiling patient with I-Braces from Naborowski Orthodontics
Dealing with crooked teeth is no fun. Not only do they impact your smile, but they also have several significant effects on your oral health as well. Fortunately, crooked teeth can be corrected. The traditional treatment, however, is not always ideal. Not many people like the idea of having a shiny metal smile. Because of this, they often avoid treatment, preferring to live with crooked teeth rather than have their smile filled with metal brackets and wires. Today, Naborowski Orthodontics is proud to offer an orthodontic treatment that allows for the correction of your teeth without being seen thanks to I-Braces.

What Are i-Braces?

i-Braces are also commonly called lingual braces. This means that they are not attached to the front surfaces of your teeth but the backsides. The placement of the braces may be reversed, but the ultimate goals of your treatment are still the same. i-Braces still use brackets and wires to move your teeth into proper alignment, but they are almost completely hidden from view in your mouth. In fact, most people might not even know that you are wearing them unless you tell them. With the use of our state of the art dental technology, we can completely customize your treatment to your specific needs, helping to ensure the best results possible by the time your treatment is complete.

Who Is a Candidates for i-Braces?

Due to the placement of i-Braces, they are a particularly popular treatment for those who have aesthetic concerns over the thought of wearing traditional braces. i-Braces are ideal for:
•  Adults who work in fields where they are in front of clients or customers all day.
•  Those who play woodwind instruments.
•  Those who play contact sports, where a facial injury could not only cause damage to the braces but the braces could also cause severe damage to the intraoral tissues.
•  Those who want to wear Invisalign®, but their situation is too complex for aligners.

Most healthy orthodontic patients are good candidates for i-Braces. However, certain types of bite issues can prevent this solution from being ideal. For instance, a severe overbite could be problematic as chewing could cause the brackets to dislodge. A thorough exam will help us to determine if I-Braces are truly the best solution for your specific situation.

Benefits of i-Braces

i-Braces have many benefits:
•  i-Braces are discreet. Because of where they are placed, they are practically invisible in your mouth. Most people will not even notice them.
•  Because the i-Braces cannot be seen, your confidence is not negatively impacted. You may even notice an increase in your confidence as your smile improves.
•  Your treatment is completely customized to you. Each bracket is made specifically to each tooth, ensuring maximum comfort. This customized treatment also allows us to provide you with optimal results by the time your treatment is complete.
