The biggest question related to treatment that we get is definitely “How soon will my braces come off?”. The answer of course isn’t always easy to determine until your treatment has started. One of the most important factors is how your body responds to treatment and any complications that may arise.
The biggest part of the body’s natural response is the amount and speed of new bone growth that surrounds your teeth as they are moved into place from the orthodontic treatment. It’s no secret that as we age, our body’s bone growth slows down (or even stops). So adults tend to have longer treatment times than children. In orthodontic care, there simply have been no methods for speeding up the duration of this part of the treatment, until now.
The FDA has very recently approved a brand new medical device, called AcceleDent Aura from OrthoAccel Technologies. This licensed medical device uses vibration pulse technology to stimulate bone metabolism specifically in the jaw and teeth. It has been a proven technology used in the orthopedic surgery field for over 20 years and revolutionized recovery time when it was first introduced. It has now been clinically proven to improve orthodontic treatment times. It works for all patients, children, teens, adults, and also works great for improving the results of Invisalign.
Not only is it proven to speed up treatment time, but many patients report that it makes treatment much more comfortable and eases pain associated with orthodontic treatment. Simply put, this technology is revolutionizing the field of orthodontics because the results are changing patient’s lives. It is easy, painless, dramatically speeds up time, and improves comfort during treatment.
A typical 12 month treatment for mild to moderate orthodontic needs will now take as little as 6 months! The most common 24 month treatment for moderate to severe orthodontic needs can now be finished in as little as 12 months.
