Superior Comfort, Less Visits, & Faster Treatment Times
Empower® is a series of self-ligating braces from American Orthodontics that utilize lighter wires and lower friction brackets to move teeth, resulting in faster treatment times, less orthodontic visits, and greater overall comfort through the length of the treatment.
Benefits of Self-Litigating Braces
Empower® self-ligation technology uses lighter wire which leads to less friction and a higher level of comfort. Self-ligating braces offer faster treatment times because the wire is allowed to move within the bracket, which means less trips to the orthodontist for tightening. These special brackets also offer active and passive archwire clips, allowing your orthodontist much greater precision control. From a cosmetic perspective, Empower® is available in both Clear and Metal brackets.
