Empower® 2 Clear Brackets

Empower 2 Clear is a smartly redesigned enhancement of its aesthetic bracket.

Engineered from the ground up for performance and beauty, the polycrystalline material is formulated to deliver uncompromising strength. Empower 2 Clear brackets are designed using state of the art CAD modeling and computerized simulation resulting in improved mechanical strength. Through extensive internal lab testing, American Orthodontics has also refined the debonding predictability of its patented Quad Matte technology — all without compromising the aesthetic clarity of the bracket.

The robust bracket body design of Empower 2 Clear enhances durability without sacrificing tie-ability. The clip is now 20% thicker than the prior offering, providing increased wire seating force and reduced clip deformation. The trident shape of the clip offers better rotational control and helps seat wire during closure while adding a visual cue to confirm clip closure. Reduced binding friction results from the redesigned wire slot chamfers while opening and closing is enhanced through improvements in the clip track.
