What Do Power Chain Braces Do?
Braces, including full- and partial-coverage braces, are generally worn to correct malocclusions, or misalignments of teeth and bite. Many people with misaligned teeth believe that having their teeth straightened will make them appear more attractive or prevent other problems, such as future tooth decay. While these beliefs are not necessarily true, wearing braces is often recommended by dentists and orthodontists because of its long-term benefits. One benefit to braces is that they can help alleviate jaw pain resulting from malocclusion. Additionally, tooth movement caused by braces can help close gaps in between or around teeth that give rise to plaque buildup and subsequent tooth decay.
Types Of Power Chains For Braces
Depending on your orthodontist’s recommendations, you may be prescribed a variety of power chains. Some are meant to reposition teeth and others are intended to keep braces in place. In addition, power chains can come with different features such as holes that help teeth move more quickly or textures that promote salivary flow to remineralize tooth enamel. If you have questions about which type of power chain is right for you, speak with your orthodontist before treatment begins. He or she will take into account factors such as your age and duration of treatment when recommending a power chain. If you still have questions after an evaluation session, don’t hesitate to bring them up at another appointment. Your orthodontist wants you to get the most out of your treatment and will do everything he or she can to make sure it happens.

What Power Chain Color Should I Get?
Most people choose clear, but you may also want to consider white. The clear power chain is recommended if you’re going with a colored elastics; it won’t clash with those hues, and it will give you that classy look. White isn’t typically recommended because your braces might show through. However, if your braces are not visible due to their color or material, then consider a white power chain—it will draw more attention to your smile.

In any case, be sure to ask your orthodontist which color he or she recommends. You should take his/her advice into consideration. They know best!
To put it simply, yes and no. Yes – if you wear rubber bands all day long without fail, then power chains can potentially damage them. No – rubber bands usually last several months (even years) before they break from regular use alone so unless you plan on wearing them non-stop until they snap (which would be crazy), they shouldn’t cause any issues at all when worn alongside power chains.
When Should You Get Black Power Chain Braces?
Black power chain braces are typically used for heavy teeth grinding and clenching. They’re much more sturdy than regular braces, which makes them better at stopping habits that cause tooth damage. If you’re not sure whether you grind or clench your teeth but still want to wear a power chain, you can get a night guard to protect your teeth from damage. Then, after wearing it regularly over time, talk to your dentist about whether you should consider getting black power chain braces instead. Your dentist will be able to tell if they’re right for you by looking at how much damage has already been done to your teeth and gums.
How Long Will I Need To Wear Power Chains?
The effectiveness of a power chain depends on each individual person, as well as how much force is being put on each tooth. The more force being put on a tooth, typically the faster you will need to wear your power chains. A dentist can help determine how long you will need to wear your power chains and when you no longer need them at all. On average, many patients are able to get rid of their power chains within six months if they wear them every day during those six months. If you aren’t able to wear them every day or if there isn’t enough stress in certain teeth and gums, then it may take longer to relieve discomfort in those areas.
Who Needs Power Chain Braces?

While ordinary braces can only move teeth a small amount, power chains provide additional force to help move teeth faster.
