Straighten Your Smile On Autopilot

InBrace hidden braces at Elm Tree Orthodontics use a personalized Smartwire that Dr. Desai places behind your teeth to gently and effectively straighten your smile.

No Wires or Trays, Just Results

InBrace’s Smartwire system is personalized for your mouth and designed to gently move your teeth according to the treatment plan Dr. Desai creates just for you.

With InBrace from Elm Tree Orthodontics, there are no painful monthly tightenings, no trays to replace, and no visible wires—just stunning results.


Behind Your Teeth

Your personalized Smartwire is behind your teeth, so only you and Dr. Desai will know it’s there.

How It Works

Customized Smartwire technology with Elm Tree Orthodontics moves your teeth by applying constant gentle force.


1. Scan

Dr. Desai will scan your teeth and create 3D images to personalize your Smartwire for predictable results.


2. Design

InBrace will customize your Smartwire based on the treatment plan Dr. Desai creates for you. Your teeth will start to move into place like your treatment is on autopilot.


3. Smile Today

Dr. Desai places your custom InBrace Smartwire behind your teeth, so you can show off your natural smile the moment you leave our Hamden or North Haven office!

This process takes about six weeks and allows Dr. Desai to cement the braces onto the backs of your teeth in ways specific to your unique needs.
