Self-ligating Braces

For over 20 years, Whitby Orthodontics has offered self-ligating braces to our patients. Self ligation is one of the orthodontic industry’s leading trends and an option that can provide benefits for you and our team. Empower is one of the most complete self ligating bracket systems in the world, as the system can be customized to benefit the needs of each individual patient.

Empower’s self ligating technology uses integrated clips to hold arch wires in place instead of traditional rubber bands (ligatures) that can stain and wear out over time. These clips allow for better hygiene, and quicker and easier wire adjustments, and that translates into less time in the dental chair.
