Self-Ligating Technology

 We proudly offer our patients Empower® self-ligating brackets.

Empower® is a series of self-ligating braces from American Orthodontics. Self-ligating braces offer several benefits for patients. They use a self-ligation technique using lighter wires and lower friction brackets to move teeth, while resulting in faster treatment times due to its slide mechanism, strong, mechanical base bonding and solid walls structured to control tooth movement with speed and efficiency. In addition to greater comfort, self-ligating braces make it easier to maintain good hygiene because they are easier to keep clean. This contributes to greater health, happiness and physical attractiveness for the duration of patient treatment.

With Empower® You Can Have…

  • Faster results
  • Shorter appointments
  • Fewer office visits
  • Greater comfort
  • Improved facial proportion and appearance

Beyond even these features, however, Empower is unique in that it is the first self-ligating brace system to offer both active and passive archwire clips, allowing your orthodontist unprecedented precision control, and the fastest possible treatment time.
