American Orthodontics Empower® Dual Activation™ System

One system. Multiple applications. Zero compromise.

PP-American OrthoOrthodontists looking for a self ligating solution that gives them both excellent anterior control and improved posterior sliding mechanics have a unique and smart choice in the Empower® Dual Activation™ System from American Orthodontics. This single, innovative system is designed to enhance a doctor’s treatment philosophy, delivering the benefits of both interactive and passive brackets in one unified system. “It really is the best of both worlds and allows me to efficiently give my patients the great finish they deserve,” says Dr. Troy Christensen, who practices in the Phoenix, Arizona area. ”The difference I have experienced after switching to Empower Dual Activation is very impressive.”

American Orthodontics pioneered the Dual Activation System with the introduction of Empower Self Ligating Brackets, the most complete self ligating bracket system in the world.* Utilizing Empower and Dual Activation brings orthodontists the time-saving benefits and ease of self ligation, while allowing them to personalize the system to their specific needs using both interactive and passive techniques.

PP-American Ortho1Dual Activation delivers minimized ligation forces throughout the system, with interactive brackets on anterior teeth for full control and a precise finish, and passive brackets on posterior teeth for improved freedom play. Plus, matching in/outs between interactive and passive designs means no first order wire-bending compensations. “My decision to utilize Empower’s Dual Activation really comes down to two things — better control and improved efficiency,” says Dr. N.R. Krishnaswamy of Chennai, India. “Dual Activation allows me to schedule fewer arch wire changes and fewer visits compared to other systems.”

“I was amazed from the start at the positive changes Dual Activation brought my practice and how much easier it is to finish cases,” says Dr. Dan Bills of Sicklerville, New Jersey. “I don’t have to detail and bend wire the way I used to, and that’s been a huge benefit.”

The Dual Activation System allows orthodontists to make the system unique to their own treatment styles with Empower’s extensive options, including multiple prescriptions, wires, hooks, and pads.

“The Dual Activation System just makes sense. It’s logical. I’ve found it to be a system I can really trust to get a great, efficient finish,” says Dr. Salvador Romero of Ciudad Juárez, Mexico. “And my patients trust Dual Activation because I trust it.”
