Patients number one concern before starting orthodontic treatment is how long will it take. Today, many adults are seeking orthodontic treatment to enhance their social, psychological and overall health in their lives. However, most adult patients do not want orthodontic treatment for an extended period of time.
Accelerated orthodontics is a new technology in orthodontic treatment that can accomplish the same goals as traditional orthodontics in much less time. The main advantage of accelerated orthodontics is speed. With traditional orthodontics, patients may need to wear braces for two to four years, or aligners for 12 months, but with accelerated orthodontics the time is reduced by as much as 50%.
Dr. Anna Berik of Newton Dental Associates offers PROPEL®, an advanced orthodontic technique that works with your Invisalign aligners or braces to accelerate your orthodontic treatment. Dr. Berik is a leader in the field of accelerated orthodontics. She has traveled the country teaching other doctors her BAM technique and lecturing on the benefits of accelerated orthodontics.
PROPEL® uses your own biology to stimulate the bone surrounding your teeth; helping the teeth to move faster and more predictably into their ideal position so we can reveal your new smile faster. PROPEL is completed in our office in minutes and does not require any invasive surgical procedures. Additionally, PROPEL treatment yields very little discomfort to you and there is zero recovery time so you will be able to immediately return to your normal daily routine.
If you’ve always been bothered by crooked teeth or have problems with biting and chewing, but didn’t want to commit to wearing braces, accelerated orthodontics may be the answer as it will significantly shorten the treatment time of your Invisalign or braces.
