Empower braces use self-ligating metal brackets and wires to align the teeth with pressure, which means that they don’t use the plastic rings of traditional braces to keep the archwire in place. To learn more about Empower braces in Lahaina, Lihue, Makawo, Hilo and Kahului, Hawaii, please call Hawaii Smile Designs at (808) 874-9229 and schedule an appointment with our orthodontists, Dr. Aaron Miyai or Dr. Alexander J. Verga.
