What is Accelerated Orthodontics?
If your child has a big event coming up like a graduation, bar/bat mitzvah, prom or even a college interview, he or she is probably dreading the thought of wearing a mouth full of metal during these special moments. Accelerated Orthodontics is an advanced orthodontic treatment technique that involves using accessory devices combined with fixed braces or clear aligners to reduce the total time needed for orthodontic treatment. This adds a great option for those who are looking for a fast, quick fix orthodontic treatment due to a set end timeline.
How does Accelerated Orthodontics work?
The process of Accelerated Orthodontics begins with your child’s orthodontist determining what type of accessory device would work best for them, depending on the individual treatment plan. It could be used together with all types of braces, such as traditional metal braces , ceramic braces , lingual braces — or clear aligners like Invisalign.
Once that determination is made, a key component of accelerated orthodontics is the use of devices, whether it’s in-office or at-home. With an in-office device, your child’s surgical orthodontic team will perform a minor “surgical procedure” in the office to prepare the bones in which teeth are embedded for smoother and faster movement of teeth in the desired direction. The procedure is a very minor surgery and minimally invasive.
At-home devices like Propel VPro or AcceleDent speed up the treatment process via micro-pulse vibrations to accelerate the movement of your child’s teeth under orthodontic pressure. Both the VPro and AcceleDent are used in the convenience of your own home. The hands-free systems work by your child simply biting down on the mouthpiece and waiting while the vibration technique is performed. The FDA-approved VPro takes just five minutes a day and there’s even a smartphone app that allows you and your child to track the progress. The AcceleDent is another popular option that takes about 20 minutes per day.
What are the benefits of Accelerated Orthodontics?
In addition to straightening your child’s teeth in a much shorter amount of time, another important benefit is that the faster the orthodontic treatment is done the less impact it has on their general oral health. In other words, it’s more difficult for your child to keep their teeth and gums free of disease if orthodontic treatment takes a long time. With accelerated orthodontics, they can get back to their normal oral routine much faster,avoid risking general oral health, and enjoy those big moments with confidence!
