The POWER in PowerProx Six Month Braces

Indian Trail NC Orthodontist

Advancements in the area of orthodontics over the past 20 years have been nothing short of remarkable, especially in the use of accelerated orthodontics and other short-term straightening systems. Yet, when it comes to PowerProx Six Month Braces, many do not realize that it has been used for several decades around the world. Thus, many patients have discovered the straighter smile that they always wanted, in a much shorter treatment time. To learn more about the POWER in the PowerProx Six Month Braces System, continue reading below.

For the most part, PowerProx Six Month Braces incorporates the same orthodontic methods that have been used for many, many years. The difference is the unique hi-tech brackets combined with arch wires containing a shape memory. This allows for a pre-determined protocol to be developed in which teeth move in response to the arch wire’s “memory.”

As an example, it doesn’t matter how much the arch wires are bent or twisted in response to teeth that are crooked or misaligned, they will continuously work to return to the correct shape, according to their memory. Thus, PowerProx Braces do not require tightening or adjusting throughout treatment. While the forces applied to teeth with the PowerProx system are gentler than traditional methods, teeth move into place faster, because they are encouraged to move on a continuum.

Without question, lower forces applied to teeth certainly makes for more comfortable treatment. Yet, another easy benefit of the PowerProx Six Month Braces system is that the brackets and arch wires are thin and discreet, and the braces on the teeth are clear and unnoticeable.

While the best candidates for PowerProx Six Month Braces are those with mild to moderate misalignments of the front (anterior) teeth, only a dental professional can determine if the PowerProx system is well-suited for you.
