Accelerated Orthodontics

h-braces1.jpgWe live in a fast-paced world where we want results quicker than ever before. That’s why we offer Accelerated Orthodontics, which provides you with the beautiful, straight smile that you want faster than traditional braces.

With Accelerated Orthodontics, we use clear, ceramic braces which are aesthetically pleasing to those who are worried about wearing embarrassing metal braces. Not only are the brackets clear, but they also use tooth-colored wires, too! These braces are barely noticeable to others.

Accelerated Orthodontics has proven to move teeth into the desired position in just three to eight months versus the one to three years conventional orthodontics requires. This revolutionary treatment option is ideal for most adults, but may not be suitable for everyone. We will work with you individually to determine if you are a good candidate for Accelerated Orthodontics.

Pulsed Ultrasound Devices

AcceleDent® Aura
By inserting the Mouthpiece – fitted around your existing orthodontics – and turning on the Activator for 20 minutes every day, AcceleDent Aura can speed up tooth movement by using SoftPulse Technology™. Faster tooth movement may decrease the duration of your orthodontic treatment and can even help to make your orthodontics more comfortable.

Propel VPro5
VPro5 is a lightweight tool for home use that orthodontists use to speed up the treatment process. By sending out light vibrations for just 5 minutes each day and increasing the blood flow and cellular activities around your teeth, treatment is completed faster.

Light Acceleration Devices

Biolux OrthoPulse®
OrthoPulse® uses low intensity light technology to gently facilitate orthodontic tooth movement. It can be done in ten minutes per day at home and does not require you to spend extra chair time at the office.

Surgical Acceleration

Propel Micro-perforations
Using a sterile, disposable, one-time-use Propel device, we will create a small, micro-perforation into the jaw bone. Micro-perforations can be performed throughout the mouth or can be localized to specific areas as needed. The device is has an adjustable depth dial, so we can control how deep the surgical steel tip penetrates. It’s also ergonomically designed, so we have better control, resulting in a virtually painless procedure. This quick, 5-minute process will help speed up your orthodontic treatment, making it more efficient and effective!

Also known as Accelerated Osteogenic Orthodontics (AOO)™, Wilckodontics™ is a technique designed to dramatically increase the rate of tooth movement. During the procedure, some of the supporting bone is removed. As new bone starts to mineralize, braces can move the teeth rapidly. This is because the bone is soft and there is less resistance to the force of braces. Research has shown that treatment results are as stable and long-term as that of conventional braces treatment. Wilckodontics offers a much shorter treatment time, which generally averages between 3 to 9 months.
