Braces

Braces are considered traditional orthodontics and are an excellent option for correcting a misaligned bite, straightening teeth, and enhancing your smile. Although braces are a more visible option of straightening teeth, they are extremely effective, and many people still prefer to be treated with braces.

Empower Metal  

BRACES01We use American Orthodontics Empower braces a technically advanced style of self-ligating braces. Self-ligation is one of the industries leading treatment trends and an option that can provide benefits for you. Empower braces can help make wearing braces a more positive comfortable experience. The technology in Empower self-ligating braces uses a mechanism called a clip that is built into the bracket and is able to be opened and closed over the arch wire, making the use of rubber modules or ligature unnecessary, allowing for easier wire adjustments, more comfortable adjustments and less frequent orthodontic adjustments which means less chair time for the patient.

Quicker, easier wire adjustments

State of the art self-ligating clips hold the arch wire in place instead of rubber bands (ligatures), allowing for quicker and potentially more comfortable wire adjustments.

Strong and hygienic

Empower uses strong, heat treated chromium cobalt clips instead of traditional ligatures that are prone to discoloration, lose their effectiveness over time, and require frequent replacements. Eliminating ligatures also eliminates one of the leading food traps.

Comfortable inside your mouth

Empower’s contoured edges and sculpted, low profile design mean a smoother surface against your cheeks and lips.

Empower Clear

BRACES02American Orthodontics Empower Clear is another type of self-ligating bracket we offer. Empower Clear is a technologically advanced ceramic bracket that offers you the benefit of a more cosmetic treatment choice and less noticeable braces. Using the same technology as the Empower metal braces with self-ligating technology using a mechanism called a clip that is built into the bracket and is able to be opened and closed over the arch wire, making the use of rubber modules or ligature unnecessary, allowing for easier wire adjustments, more comfortable adjustments and less frequent orthodontic adjustments which means less chair time for the patient.

Empower Clear Braces are made of strong ceramic material that looks great on your teeth. You’ll be noticed, your braces won’t.

Quicker, easier wire adjustments

State of the art self-ligating clips eliminate rubber bands (ligatures) to hold your arch wire in place, allowing your orthodontist to make quicker wire adjustments. This could mean shorter appointments, and may even reduce the total number of visits required during your treatment.

Comfortable inside your mouth

Empower Clear’s contoured edges and sculpted, low profile design mean a smoother surface against your cheeks and lips.

No staining

Self ligating clips eliminate plastic ligatures, which are prone to discoloration and fatigue over time. This, combined with the extremely stable ceramic bracket body material, reduces any risk of staining. Your Empower Clear Braces will stay beautiful throughout treatment.
