Empower® 2 Metal Brackets

Empower 2's metal brackets give you the choice of a fully interactive, fully passive, or combination Dual Activation™ system.

Advanced Smile Technology

Empower 2 is designed with comfort and orthodontist’s treatment goals in mind. Each Empower 2 bracket is built to the highest standard with leading edge, high performance technology.

Treatment Versatility

Empower 2 is the first in the industry to offer you the versatility of both interactive and passive bracket designs in one unified system with coordinated in/outs.

Interactive Bracket

  • Lower ligation forces early in treatment: exceptional torque and rotation control during working and finishing phases
  • Available in metal upper and lower 5-5 and ceramic upper 5-5

Passive Bracket

  • Lower ligation forces throughout treatment
  • Available in metal upper and lower 5-5

Dual Activation

This combination interactive/passive system allows you the best of both worlds:

Anterior Teeth – Interactive Brackets

  • Lower ligation forces during initial leveling and alignment phases
  • Increased torque and rotational control during finishing

Posterior Teeth – Passive Brackets

  • Lower ligation forces throughout treatment
  • Matching in/outs between interactive and passive designs means no 1st order wire bending compensations
