Empower® Philosophies

The Most Complete Self Ligating Bracket System in the World.

Empower is all about choice. With Clear, metal, and molar options, as well as interactive and passive designs, Empower's complete system allows you to customize treatment that fits your philosophy and your patients' needs.


Treatment Versatility

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


Interactive Bracket

  • Clip passively captures smaller wires and actively engages larger wires for lower ligation force early in treatment and exceptional torque and rotation control during working and finishing stages


Passive Bracket

  • Clip passively captures all wire sizes for lower ligation forces throughout treatment
