It is important to us that our patients have choices. In addition to offering multiple forms of orthodontic treatment, Dr. Kumar is careful to recommend the process that he believes to be the most suitable based on a discussion of goals and concerns, and a physical examination of teeth and the arches of the jaw.
Powerprox Six Month Braces® is an innovative advancement of modern orthodontics. As the name states, most patients can expect completion within a six month timeframe. Some patients complete treatment much sooner, and others may need a bit longer to achieve optimal results, with the most severe cases typically completed within nine months.
The Powerprox system is similar to standard braces, using the bracket and wire mechanism to guide teeth into proper position. One difference, however, is that the appliances used can be tooth-colored and barely perceivable. An added option of this system is that brackets and wires can actually be positioned on the back of teeth, remaining out of sight throughout the course of treatment. Dr. Kumar is happy to discuss all available options, helping our patients confidently decide their best course of action.
Powerprox is not an orthodontic system that is accelerated due to excessive pressure. In fact, this method uses lighter forces than standard braces, and moves teeth rapidly as a result. Not only does Powerprox work faster than traditional orthodontics, this system tends to be more affordable, as well.
Following any form of orthodontic treatment, the aim is to retain the results achieved. Powerprox produces precise retainers, designed for nighttime wear to keep teeth in their new, proper alignment. These retainers, made with comfortable, clear material, are customized for a snug fit. An alternative to a nighttime retainer is a permanent retainer, which is affixed to the back of teeth.
Powerprox is yet another example of innovative dentistry. Working with Dr. Kumar and our highly trained staff, you can have the healthy, beautiful smile you deserve. Before, during, and following treatment, we are available to answer all of your questions to ensure a positive dental experience.
