Powerprox Braces in Orlando
Today, many adults think of traditional metal braces as a service that is purely for children; after all, when you’re in the professional world, a mouthful of silver brackets and wires doesn’t exactly make the best first impression. Thankfully, Powerprox Braces have come around to modernize this age-old system in a way that benefits image-conscious patients, and Dr. Maali is happy to offer it here at Sand Lake Dental. If you’d like to schedule an initial consultation and learn whether or not you’re right for this service, please give our Orlando, FL practice a call. Our team looks forward to meeting you!
How Do Powerprox Braces Work?
While traditional braces are designed to create strong force against the teeth with constant tightening, Powerprox uses consistent, gentle pressure to shift your smile into a much more proper and attractive alignment. In fact, there’s a sense of “shape memory” built right into the braces, which means that even when they become stretched because of dental misalignment, they are always pulling back towards their original form and moving teeth in the process. Powerprox is primarily focused on making cosmetic improvements instead of changing a patient’s entire bite, which means that the teeth that show when you smile will receive the most focus.
What are the Benefits of Powerprox Braces?
- Powerprox treatment is very fast – in fact, most patients are completed after only six months, which is a big improvement over the multiple years that traditional orthodontic treatment can sometimes require.
- While Powerprox braces do resemble traditional braces in structure, they use clear brackets and tooth-colored wires that are much more subtle and attractive against the teeth.
- On average, patients can expect Powerprox braces to be more affordable than other popular orthodontic services like traditional braces and Invisalign.
