The Powerprox Six-Month Braces® technique uses orthodontic brackets (tooth colored/clear, metal, self-ligating, and lingual braces) and special Nickel Titanium Wires to move the teeth with low controlled force. In cases of crowding, sometimes space is made by slenderizing selected teeth with special instruments. In other cases, space is made by lateral expansion of the dental arch that occurs by having the teeth bonded to the Powerprox Braces. In some cases, special elastics and springs are used to move teeth around. You will be amazed at how quickly your crooked smile starts to straighten out!
Does it hurt?
Most of our patients state that they do not feel pain. In fact, we treat a lot of patients who previously had comprehensive orthodontics, state there's no comparison. The key to success of the Powerprox Six-Month Braces® Technique is the flexibility and low forces of the archwire.Am I am a candidate? Most of our patients are teenagers to adults in their sixties who have severe to mild crowding or spaces between their teeth. Some our patients have orthodontic relapse which is a great case for Powerprox 6 Month Braces. To find out if you are a candidate please call our office (865) 494-0634 for a consultation.
