What are Empower braces?
Empower braces work a little differently than traditional metal braces. They have small brackets affixed to each of your teeth and a metal archwire running through them, just like conventional braces, but are quite a bit smaller, and don’t require any elastics to straighten your smile.
That’s because Empower braces are self-ligating. That means the brackets have special clips to hold the archwire in place instead of elastics. This improves the accuracy of your treatment, and helps prevent staining that elastics are known for.
