What if we told that you could get braces with brackets and wires that were completely invisible? While it may seem too good to be true, they exist, and they are called InBrace lingual braces. Here at Morita Orthodontics, we always stay on the cutting edge of orthodontic technology, and InBrace lingual braces are one of the latest and greatest treatment options that we are proud to offer to our patients at both of our local offices in Aiea and Honolulu, HI. If you’re looking for a more discreet orthodontic treatment experience to achieve your perfect smile, without sacrificing comfort, convenience, or appearance, InBrace lingual braces are the perfect option for you. To learn more about this state-of-the-art treatment technology, check out the information below!
At first glance, lingual braces seem a lot like traditional braces, and that’s because, in many ways, they are! They use the same wires and brackets you’re probably familiar with if you’ve had friends or family with braces, but with one important difference— the placement. The reason that lingual braces are considered invisible is because everything goes behind your teeth, putting all the hardware completely out of view whenever you smile.
While there are different types of lingual braces out there, InBrace is one the most advanced, using state-of-the-art treatment planning technology and a unique “smartwire” design to improve efficiency and comfort to create a treatment experience that is unlike any other.
The InBrace smartwire doesn’t look like your traditional, straight, stainless steel wire. Instead, you get a wire that continuously turns back and forth, creating interdental loops that allow the wire to more naturally align with the teeth and move them along paths more efficiently than what’s possible with a normal archwire. The smartwire is made with InBrace’s very own Gentleforce technology, designing the wires to apply constant, equal pressure throughout treatment, meaning that the braces never need to be tightened.
If you need braces in Honolulu, HI, chances are you would benefit from this approach, but there may be other options that also suit your needs and lifestyle. Talking to an orthodontist is the best way to sort out considerations like:

RE: COVID-19 (Coronavirus)
To our valued patients,
In order to prevent the spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus), President Trump, the American Dental Association and the Hawaii Dental Association are recommending all dentists postpone nonemergency dental procedures for 2 weeks. Our practice is committed to protecting the community and avoiding using valuable resources that our first responders and frontline healthcare providers will need.
Our office will be closed effective today, Wednesday, March 18, and we plan to resume regular hours on Wednesday, April 1. If you are experiencing a true dental emergency including swelling or severe tooth pain, please call your general dentist office, and listen closely as emergency contact info will be available. For all nonemergent questions, please email us at [email protected].
We are so sorry for the burden this places on your schedules, but your continued health and safety are our number one priority. Our office is working diligently to reschedule all patients with existing appointments within the next 2 weeks. We will continue to evaluate the situation as it evolves and determine on a weekly basis when it is appropriate for us to return to normal orthodontic patient care. We ask for your compassion and understanding at this time as we all work together to keep Hawaii healthy.
