Self-Ligating Braces

About In-Ovation® System Braces


In-Ovation combines the benefits of self-ligation with GAC’s exclusive Interactive™ technology—the key to an optimal occlusion. In-Ovation is the only system with which you can decide the exact degree of wire-to-bracket engagement that’s correct for each phase of your patient’s treatment.

Why In-Ovation self-ligation is the right choice for your practice
In-Ovation self-ligating brackets pay immediate dividends in both efficiency and lower per-patient operating costs.

Why the In-Ovation system is the right choice for your patients
In-Ovation enables patients to enjoy a cleaner, more aesthetic appearance. With far fewer office visits, less discomfort and faster treatment time than with traditional tie braces, your patients will have a more positive orthodontic experience.
In-Ovation averages 40-percent fewer appointments than traditional brackets with ties.

In-Ovation finishes equivalent cases approximately 4-months sooner than traditional brackets with ties.

With In-Ovation, doctors realize an approximate chairside time-savings of 3.5 hours per patient.

In-Ovation® R

The premier mini twin, self-ligating bracket that gives you complete control from start to finish.

In-Ovation R enables orthodontists and staff to treat cases easily and effectively while offering patients a faster, more comfortable and attractive treatment option. This unique bracket with Interactive™ technology allows doctors to choose the degree of control needed for each phase of treatment. The results have reflected a faster overall treatment time than traditional braces and improved finishing.  

The bracket’s laser-welded SuperMesh® ME base with clear indicators promotes ideal placement. Its innovative clip technology easily opens and closes; closing with a nudge of a thumb with an audible "click” to assure correct engagement.  An interactive Coballoy spring clip provides better torque expression while a special design ensures easy opening and closing – a full arch change takes seconds




The ideal approach for quick, cosmetic correction.

A breakthrough in cosmetic orthodontics for patients seeking fast, cosmetic correction of minor misalignments and yet are not willing to wear braces. For some, the difference between an ordinary and a radiant smile can be measured in millimeters. Today, with MTM, patients can perfect their smile in just a few months by addressing just the six upper and six lower anterior teeth: the “dazzling dozen.”

Twelve “quick clips” –unprecedentedly tiny, self-ligating, lingual brackets are set just below the incisal edge. Indirect placement allows the system to be positioned and bonded quickly; our In-Ovation self-ligating clips allow the wire to be set in place in just seconds.

The best part about MTM?  Only you and your patient will know they’re even there. And with no wire changes and an exceptionally short treatment time, an ideal, dazzling smile is months away!

In-Ovation® L

In-Ovation L is the world’s first lingual bracket that allows clinicians to treat patients more efficiently and effectively with both self-ligation and Interactive™ control technology. Interactive enables doctors to choose the exact level of control that’s required for each phase of treatment, which facilitates better, faster finishing. With In-Ovation L, patients experience a high level of comfort and easy wearability during a totally undetectable treatment process.

Because In-Ovation L is a self-ligating bracket, archwire changes are fast, easy and without hassle.  For a system that offers greater control than retainers and is less visible than plastic corrector trays (and without the associated compliance issues), In-Ovation L delivers clinicians and patients excellent results and shorter treatment times.

In-Ovation® C

In-Ovation C is the world’s first ceramic bracket that allows clinicians to treat patients efficiently and effectively with self-ligation and GAC’s unique Interactive™ control technology. Interactive means that doctors can choose the exact level of control that’s required for each phase of treatment.

Greater control means better, faster finishing. With In-Ovation C, patients experience a more comfortable, attractive treatment experience, while doctors achieve the results they want with less chairtime and an overall shorter length of treatment.

In-Ovation C’s exceptionally high translucency and rhodium-coated clip provide superb aesthetics—a marketable advantage that appeals to patients of all ages. In terms of better treatment, studies consistently show that self-ligating brackets significantly lower frictional forces; offer faster archwire changes; decrease the number of appointments; and shorten treatment time. In-Ovation C means you can handle more cases while enhancing treatment outcome and the patient experience
