Self Ligating System
Dr. Bowden uses the Self Ligating System, which as described below not only gives you straight teeth, but also enhances many facial features. The Self Ligating System is based on a unique treatment philosophy that goes beyond straight teeth. Dr. Bowden is trained to take the whole patient into account: the shape of your face, your profile, what you will look like into your 40s, 50s… and beyond. This system will help you achieve a more youthful look. Many people see a noticeable change not just in their teeth, but in their entire face.
Benefits of the Self Ligating System include:
- A fuller and broader smile
- Better facial balance and esthetics
- Smoother cheek contours
- Fewer dark triangles at the corner of the mouth
Empower Self Ligating Bracket
See results faster than you might think. While treatment time can vary, clinical studies demonstrate that the Self Ligating System treatment is up to six months faster than traditional braces.
And while invisible aligners can be effective at straightening some crooked teeth, not everyone is a candidate. In contrast, Empower works 24 hours a day, seven days a week to perfectly align ALL teeth for a phenomenal smile that enhances your entire facial appearance.
We use both the Empower metal (Stainless steel bracket) and the Empower Clear (Clear Cosmetic Bracket). Please ask us any questions you have about our brackets.
