Empower braces

At Impression Orthodontics, we put the needs of our patients first and foremost. That’s why we’ve decided to carry Empower braces at our practice. These modern, self-ligating braces offer increased comfort, faster treatment times, and added discretion compared to traditional options.

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.

How do Empower braces work?

Because self-ligating braces don’t use elastics, it allows the archwire to naturally slide through your brackets as your teeth adjust, reducing friction and speeding up treatment times.

Since self-ligating braces are self adjusting, having treatment with Empower braces greatly reduces the number of adjustment appointments you need during treatment. To help move your smile into alignment, we use light, shape-memory wires to add targeted pressure to your smile.

Types of Empower braces

At Impression Orthodontics, you can choose from two types of Empower braces: Empower metal braces, and Empower clear braces. This gives you the option of traditional metal brackets, or discreet ceramic brackets that blend in with the colour of your teeth.

Both Empower metal and clear braces share the same great efficiency, accuracy, and comfort when it comes to shaping your smile.

Benefits of Empower braces

  • Faster treatment times - Because your teeth can move more freely and accurately, you will achieve your desired results more swiftly.
  • Fewer appointments - Since we won’t need to replace any elastics or tighten your braces, you won’t have to visit us at the clinic as often during treatment.
  • High-quality results - Self-ligating brackets provide extra precision for your treatment, bringing consistent, top-quality outcomes.
  • Increased comfort - The self-ligating brackets reduce friction during treatment and lessen the need for tooth extraction.
  • Extra discretion - Patients who are conscious about the look of their treatment love the option of clear ceramic brackets.
