Orthodontic treatment has come a long way since the invention of metal braces in the early 20th century. Today, orthodontic patients have more options than ever before that promise faster, more efficient treatment. The most innovative technique today is Accelerated Orthodontics which consists of a type of orthodontic treatment that aims to speed up the process of straightening teeth and correcting bite problems. This approach typically involves using special devices to move teeth more quickly than traditional orthodontic methods.
Consequently, at Mergen Orthodontics, we prepared a complete guide with everything you need to know about these innovative techniques so people can be better informed.
How Accelerated Treatment Works
AcceleDent is a light, comfortable, and hands-free appliance used 20 minutes daily to complement Invisalign or braces to expedite tooth movement. The patented technology gently vibrates the teeth and surrounding bone to increase the blood flow, allowing tooth movement to occur more rapidly. The best part of the AcceleDent system is that it’s completely safe! You may experience a slight tingling sensation, much like the vibration of an electric toothbrush, but it should diminish after you become accustomed to using the appliance. Additionally, It can be used by adolescents, teens, and adults, and is completely safe for all patients.
The Benefits of Accelerated Treatments
One of the main benefits of accelerated braces is that they require fewer office visits than traditional braces. Patients typically only need to visit their orthodontist for four to six weeks for adjustments, which can save time and money. Additionally, accelerated braces are as effective as traditional braces in correcting bite issues and improving overall dental health. They also offer 76% more comfort by reducing the soreness associated with teeth movement. By using this pain-free, easy appliance, you’ll achieve your perfect smile in no time – and do it more comfortably!
