Accelerated Orthodontics Q & A
What is accelerated orthodontics?
Accelerated orthodontics combines traditional braces with other advanced treatments to improve the alignment of your teeth and jaw. Instead of taking 24 months or longer to straighten your teeth, accelerated orthodontics provides stunning results in less than a year.
Over the last decade, accelerated orthodontics has become increasingly popular with adults. The treatment process is quicker, more affordable, and less of a hassle than traditional teeth straightening options.
What types of alignment issues can accelerated orthodontics correct?
At Constant and Contro Orthodontics, the team uses accelerated orthodontics to treat various alignment issues, including:
- Crooked and overlapping teeth
- Large spaces between teeth
- Open bite
- A misaligned jaw
Before developing a custom treatment plan, your Constant and Contro Orthodontics provider conducts an oral exam, takes oral X-rays, and asks about your goals for treatment.
What are the types of accelerated orthodontics?
The team at Constant and Contro Orthodontics offers several types of accelerated orthodontic treatment, including:
AcceleDent is a device that attaches to your braces. When you turn the AcceleDent on, it emits a gentle pulse that helps move your teeth into the optimal position. To ensure satisfactory results, wear your AcceleDent for at least 20 minutes each day or as prescribed by your orthodontist.
This type of accelerated orthodontics stimulates the bones that support your teeth, resulting in enhanced cytokine activity. The increase in cytokine activity changes the structure of your bone, allowing your teeth to move into the proper position quickly.
Micro-Osteoperforation is similar to PROPEL in that it increases cytokine activity. During MOP, your orthodontist applies mild force to your teeth at regularly scheduled intervals. That process encourages cytokine activity, allowing your teeth to move into position.
What are the benefits of accelerated orthodontics?
The most obvious benefit of accelerated orthodontics is the quicker treatment time. If you want to have a healthy, symmetrical smile, but without the hassle of traditional braces, accelerated treatment is the way to go.
What’s more, accelerated treatment can be used with any type of braces, including traditional metal braces, ceramic braces, and lingual braces.
