Advanced Techniques

Woolaver Clearsmiles is excited to offer the newest version of clear braces. The new Empower® Clear braces are practically invisible and combine technology with the cosmetic results you demand.


The result is a crystal-clear brace system that will give you a dazzling smile faster and more comfortably than ever before.


We are proud to be one of the leading Orthodontic practices in Arizona offering the Empower® Clear Brace System, which has proven to be an amazing breakthrough in braces technology.


The Empower® bracket system is the most popular form of treatment in our office and there is a good reason – it has completely changed the way we can treat orthodontic patients today! This revolutionary system utilizes very light forces to achieve results beyond previously conceived expectations. Orthodontic treatment is now considerably less time-consuming and much more comfortable than ever before.


The Empower® System not only produces beautiful smiles and straight teeth, but allows orthodontists to enhance facial aesthetics as well. We have never before had such a positive influence on the bone and soft tissues that support and surround the teeth and face. The result is so much more than simply straight teeth, patients are rewarded with very broad/beautiful smiles and nice full support of their lips.

There is a false misconception that all braces and orthodontic treatments are the same – this is not true!

With all the options available today, it is more important than ever to carefully select what type of braces and technology are used for your treatment. Traditional orthodontic therapy involves “tying-in” archwires with tight coloured elastics. This old form of treatment often requires removal of healthy teeth, resulting in a narrow smile and flat lips because the coloured elastics bind up the archwire and prevent the teeth from moving efficiently. Heavy forces must be applied to overcome friction induced by these tight coloured elastics. Traditional braces are typically more painful, actually slow down tooth movement, and lengthen the time of treatment. The Empower® System, however, takes a completely different approach. It has a built-in sliding door that acts as a tunnel for the wire and teeth to move freely, without friction, into their straight position. The Empower® System uses very gentle pressure, working with the natural forces of your body. This allows your dental arches to develop the way they were always meant to. The result: treatment is accomplished in far less time, with fewer appointments and with far greater comfort than traditional braces!


Conventional braces are tied in with elastics, which cause friction and pressure, making treatment slower and less comfortable. Empower braces use a slide mechanism to hold the wire, which allows teeth to move more freely, quickly and comfortably.


Empower braces are designed to be discreet, comfortable and easy to keep clean. Without the elastic ties which attract and collect plaque, Empower braces make dental hygiene easier during treatment.

The Most Comfortable Orthodontic Treatment Ever

For years, the traditional thinking was that heavy forces – based on what a patient could tolerate – were needed to move teeth. By creating the new Empower System of high-technology braces and wires, very light natural forces can now be applied to move teeth at a rate never seen before in Orthodontics. This means less pressure on your teeth for more comfortable treatment.


Fewer Office Visits

Traditional braces use colored elastics to hold on to the archwire. The elastics have to be changed frequently because they wear out and become stained over time. Since the Empower® braces have a unique sliding door, they require fewer adjustments. The light force, “high-technology” wires continue to work for a longer period of time. This means fewer office visits than with conventional braces. We want to make your treatment as comfortable as possible and fit easily into your busy schedule.


Amazingly, patients of all ages are enjoying more comfortable treatment – in far less time! And people all around the world are experiencing startling transformations of their face and smile that have never been seen before, until introduction of the Empower® brace system! Doctor Woolaver and his team are proud to treat patients to the very highest level of care, in a shorter period of time, with far greater comfort using the Empower System.
