Typically, treatment with braces can take from 12 to 36 months depending on the extent of the orthodontic problem and the type of treatment. Some treatments rely heavily on patient cooperation while others may require frequent office visits. This can take time out of your schedule and may even delay treatment in some cases. Our Northridge accelerated orthodontics expert offers an option that may help dramatically reduce your treatment time so that you can unveil your healthy new smile faster.
Accelerated orthodontics can help you finish your treatment in a fraction of the time it would usually take. Our expert in accelerated orthodontics in Northridge uses a special appliance that has been shown to speed the movements of teeth during treatment by 100 percent initially and between 35 and 50 percent later in the treatment process. No adverse reactions have been associated with this method, and patients experience excellent results and less treatment time.
Accelerated Orthodontics Northridge
The process begins as any other orthodontic treatment. Our Northridge accelerated orthodontics expert will first evaluate your bite and treatment needs. Dental records such as impressions and X-rays will be taken to plan your treatment, and then we will determine the best treatment for your needs. Accelerated orthodontics can be completed with conventional braces or Invisalign treatment, and it can make either one faster, easier and more effective.
Most patients tolerate the appliance extremely well and without any discomfort. It is easy to use, and patients just need to use it for a brief period daily. The accelerated appliance uses a gentle pulsing vibration to stimulate bone development and remodeling, which allows the teeth to move more quickly and improves the effectiveness of your chosen orthodontic treatment. Our expert in accelerated orthodontics in Northridge can help you decide if it is right for you.
During treatment, you will still need to maintain good dental hygiene and follow the appropriate treatment schedule as recommended.
