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 California 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.
