The Multi-loop Edgewise Archwire (MEAW) technique was first introduced to the orthodontic community over 20 years ago. It is a very intricate, complex, non-surgical method for treating patients that would normally require surgical realignment of the jaws. This technique utilizes braces, custom-formed looped archwires, and elastics to guide to teeth into the correct positions.
There are very few orthodontists in the United States trained in the MEAW technique and offering it as a treatment option to their patients. Our doctors are constantly striving to stay on the cutting-edge of technology and orthodontic treatment. Therefore, we have chosen to offer the MEAW technique because it provides our patients with a comfortable, non-invasive alternative to surgery.
