Braces are just one of the tools we have in Orthodontics to move teeth into a healthier bite and a more beautiful smile. The health and wellbeing of your teeth for a lifetime of use is of primary importance. Tooth and bite related problems that are left unchecked could have considerable implications further in life, particularly as we are now in an era of keeping our natural teeth for our lifetime.
A healthy bite and beautiful smile are an important part of our health, confidence and wellbeing.
Braces still offer us the most efficient and accurate way of moving teeth. Orthodontic braces are used to align and straighten the teeth and help position them into a correct bite, whilst also working to improve dental health. They are often used to correct malocclusions (bad bites) such as underbites, overbites, crossbites, crooked teeth and various other problems of the teeth and jaws.
Braces technology has changed and advanced a great deal over time. They are smaller and lower profile for additional comfort. We use the latest generation of “self-ligating” braces to ensure the fastest treatment time, less visits for you and the most hygienic and comfortable option for our patients. If you would like coloured elastic modules on the braces for a bit of fun, just ask our friendly and experienced team.
Empower Self-Ligating Braces consist of compact, contoured brackets that provide you with comfort and your orthodontist with the precise control necessary to ensure you achieve a perfectly aligned smile
Quicker, easier wire adjustments
Empower's self ligating technology uses integrated clips to hold arch wires in place instead of traditional rubber bands (ligatures) that can stain and wear out over time. These clips allow your orthodontist to make quicker, easier wire adjustments. And that can mean less time in the orthodontist's chair.
State of the art 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 cobolt 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.
