Many adults let the fear of a disrupted physical appearance keep them from the smile they have always wanted. Traditional orthodontic treatments can take anywhere from 6 months to 3 years, depending on the severity of the case. Unfortunately, with today’s world focusing so much on physical appearance and social media, most adults would rather deal with crooked teeth than extended orthodontic treatment. Newton Dental Associates is proud to offer a unique treatment that may help solve this issue for many patients.
What is Accelerated Orthodontics?
Accelerated orthodontics is a treatment using a combination of devices, either traditional braces or Invisalign clear aligners. This style of orthodontic treatment speeds up the straightening process by as much as 50%. Although each patient will require individualized treatment, Dr. Anna Berik can complete the treatment in as little as three months. Accelerated orthodontics was designed to allow adults to get the smile they have always wanted without disrupting their physical appearance for long periods of time.
How Does it Work?
Newton Dental Associates uses an advanced accelerated orthodontic treatment called PROPEL. Our professionals use a combination of Invisalign and the PROPEL acceleration system. PROPEL is a safe procedure that uses a device to stimulate the bone around teeth, prompting them to move faster. After the bone is stimulated, the movement of teeth is more predictable, which allows for easier treatment of complicated cases. The PROPEL procedure is noninvasive, causes little to no discomfort, and takes just a few minutes to complete. Here are the steps to expect from a typical accelerated orthodontic procedure:
- Rinse the mouth to sterilize the target area
- Numb the gums to avoid any pain or discomfort during the procedure
- A few small perforations are performed in the designated area to stimulate the bone
- Carry on with daily activities directly after the procedure
