What Is Powerprox?
Powerprox is a safe teeth straightening system that utilizes comfortable, almost invisible brackets and wires. This orthodontic method utilizes low force to gently and quickly push the teeth into the correct place. One of the key components of Powerprox, is the high-tech archwires. They have shape memory which means that no matter how the wire is bent when put on, it will go back to its original shape, putting the teeth in their desired positions in about six months.

Does Powerprox damage teeth or gums?
No. Powerprox is a gentle, quick orthodontic treatment that utilizes low force to guide teeth into alignment. Powerprox is actually known to be easier on your teeth, gums, and jaw compared to traditional braces.
Do I have to wear a retainer after my treatment is complete?
A retainer is necessary after all orthodontic treatments. Once the process is complete, retainers ensure that your teeth stay in position and don’t start to shift. If you don’t want to keep up with a plastic retainer, please let Dr. Orr know and she can discuss the possibility of fitting you for a permanent retainer after your Powerprox treatment is complete.
