Fix Your Overbite Without a Lengthy Commitment

March 20th, 2015

Affordable Braces With A Shorter Commitment

Self ligating braces are an affordable alternative solution when it comes to fixing your overbite? Traditional braces are still a proven and efficient method for overbite correction, but you now have more choices to ask your orthodontist about.For a shorter time commitment and less pressure on your teeth, we’ve found three new kinds of orthodontic procedures that can give you the look you want.


1. Self-Ligating Braces

Self-ligating braces come in three options: metal, ceramic or clear brackets. This orthodontic solution ensures less wear and tear on your mouth and requires fewer check-ups and adjustments than traditional braces. That’s because the self-ligating option comes with alternative types of bands –– meaning fewer wires, no elastics and zero metal ties.

2. The Damon System

The Damon System is a more passive form of self-ligating braces. It uses a slide wire with the brackets, removing the need for rubber bands and tightening –– and they’re harder to see! The time it takes to perfect your alignment is shortened as well, meaning less of a time commitment with the same result3.

3. In-Ovation Braces ®

In-Ovation is a quicker alternative to traditional braces for correcting overbites. It requires fewer appointments, which means you don’t have to deal with months of brackets. In-Ovation has three different options to suit your Raleigh teeth straightening needs:






In-Ovation R

These brackets are smaller and do not require elastic or metal ties, which means less oral irritation and plaque build-up.

In-Ovation C

In-Ovation C brackets are harder to see at first glance. They are translucent and ceramic, providing a more aesthetically pleasing look.

In-Ovation L MTM

We like to call these “quick clips,” as these brackets are largely invisible and will work in a fraction of the months you’d normally expect. They are a great alternative to tray aligners for clients who require slight adjustments for their teeth straightening needs.
