This procedure can help you if your teeth are crowded together, overlapped, or have spaces between them. This treatment is fast, affordable, and completely safe.
How Does the PowerProx System Work?
Using PowerProx 6-month braces, Dr. Matian will begin using clear brackets and an ultra-thin wire for at time period of approximately one calendar month (The actual time may vary from patient to patient). This ultra-thin wire creates a pulling affect on the desired teeth which results in visible changes at the end of the 30 day period. Furthermore, during the six month treatment period, Dr. Matian will slightly increases the thickness of the wire each month, which makes changes to the alignment of your teeth.
Often times this procedure is done to align teeth before cosmetic veneers. This combination ensures that your cosmetic makeover will have the best results possible while also making the veneer procedure more conservative.
Will it only take 6 months to straighten my teeth?
Naturally, the time it takes to straighten one’s teeth can very from patient to patient. In the majority of cases, the 6 month time period is sufficient to straighten their teeth and is done so without the type of pain that is generally associated with traditional braces.
Do they look like traditional metal braces?
