What is accelerated orthodontics?
Accelerated orthodontics use conventional orthodontic devices, including braces, Invisalign®, and lingual braces – or a combination of these appliances – to get you a winning smile faster. Several advanced systems of treatment are available, including Propel® , Wilckodontics®, and vibrating devices like AcceleDent®.
What is PROPEL Orthodontics?
PROPEL Orthodontics speeds up tooth movement so you can have your orthodontic treatment done and your smile straighter in less than a year. PROPEL stimulates the bone surrounding your teeth to help them move faster and more predictably into better position.
With PROPEL, Dr. Ammar gently makes microperforations in your gums and bones. This allows for higher bone turnover and remodeling so you get faster treatment results. The treatment involves very little discomfort and there is no downtime – you can go right back to all your normal activities following treatment. Dr. Ammar can combine the PROPEL technique with any orthodontic treatment, including conventional metal braces, clear braces, and clear aligners.
Why should I consider accelerated orthodontics?
An obvious reason to consider accelerated orthodontics is the faster treatment time. Adults will particularly appreciate spending less time in braces. Accelerated orthodontics can actually spur you to get the treatment you need because of the shortened treatment time. Accelerated orthodontic treatments can use any type of braces, including conventional metal braces, as well as ceramic and lingual versions.
