In-Ovation is a new and technically advanced system that can give you the radiant smile you have always wanted more quickly than traditional braces.
Hamer & Hamer Orthodontics offers In-Ovation or self-ligating braces which are made from the same materials as traditional braces. However, self-ligating braces do not require the use of elastics, meaning fewer appointments and less friction being placed on the tooth.
Self-ligating braces come with bracket options such as traditional metal, or ceramic brackets. They are slightly smaller in size as compared to traditional braces. The manufacturers of self-ligating braces have worked to ensure they are smooth and rounded increasing comfortability and reducing spaces where food can get trapped.
Self-Ligating braces utilize a specialized clip in place of elastics to help the archwire guide teeth into place. The clip helps reduce the amount of pressure being placed on the tooth, and requires fewer adjustments because there are no elastics to replace.
