Beverly Hills Orthodontist Introduces Six Month Power Braces to Practice

January 16, 2008 (PRLEAP.COM) Health News
January 16, 2008 – LOS ANGELES AND SANTA MONICA, CALIFORNIA – Beverly Hills Orthodontist Dr. Atoosa Nikaeen recently introduced six month power braces to her practice. Six month power braces are an affordable way to properly align front teeth, whether the teeth are crowded together, overlapped or have spaces between them, Nikaeen said.

This technique is gentle, uses low force and most often is completed in six months. Some cases can be completed in fewer than six months, while more complicated cases can take slightly longer.

“Even with difficult cases, the treatment typically is completed within eight or nine months,” Nikaeen said.

Patients with the power braces usually see the orthodontist every 4 weeks for check-ups. They can be fitted with clear braces, which makes them less visible on the teeth.

Dr. Richard J. DePaul Jr. developed the Powerprox Six Month Braces Technique. It is a combination of time-tested orthodontic techniques, some of which have been used for more than 60 years and have been well documented in orthodontic literature, according to DePaul’s Web site. A key ingredient of the Powerprox Six Month Braces procedure is the use of special archwires that exert a light, continuous force to gently move the teeth to the desired position.
