Empower® Metal Brackets


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

Treatment Versatility

Empower 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 friction sliding mechanics 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 friction sliding mechanics 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

  • Low friction and low force during initial leveling and alignment phases
  • Increased torque and rotational control during finishing

Posterior Teeth – Passive Brackets

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