Brackets in Pembroke Pines & Plantation, FL
Empower brackets in Pembroke Pines and Plantation, FL is the first orthodontic treatment that uses an interactive or passive process in one coordinated system.
About Our Brackets
Passive clips capture the small wires and actively engage the larger ones for less force early in treatment. This allows for more rotation and twists control during the working and end stages. Passive clips can be used in addition to secure all sized wires for lower forces throughout orthodontic treatment.
Dual activation combines interactive brackets on anterior teeth with posterior teeth passive brackets. This unique hybrid system utilizes minimal force, that still provides anterior control for a clear-cut finish.
Advantages to Self-Ligating Treatment with Empower Brackets
- Less ligation force for anterior and posterior teeth
- Lower friction
- The wire is not engaged by the clips
- More control later in the treatment process
This combined system was pioneered by American Orthodontics with the launch of Empower self-ligating brackets. There are time-saving benefits that come with dual activation. This allows our orthodontist in Plantation, Dr. Milan Khakhria, to treat patients with the comfort of self-ligation using both the interactive and passive brackets. Less ligation force provides safer tooth movement and less pain. Anterior teeth interactive brackets offer full control and precision, while posterior teeth passive brackets can produce broader smiles.
