We are excited to be the first practice in Oklahoma to offer this revolutionary new treatment that accelerates our patient's orthodontics.
Accelerated Orthodontics is a new technology designed to decrease the time you are in traditional braces or Invisalign by increasing the rate of tooth movement. This system has been successfully used to treat people in Europe and Australia over the past few years. Results from a Randomized Controlled Clinical Trial, conducted at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio, demonstrated that tooth movement could be increased by 38-50%.
Why are micro-vibrations so important?The rate of tooth movement greatly depends on the speed at which the bone surrounding the teeth changes. Studies have shown that orthodontic force coupled with micro-vibrations, generated by our accelerated dental practice, safely accelerate tooth movement.
How does Accelerated Orthodontics work?The appliance, used daily for 20 minutes, applies patented technology to gently vibrate the teeth and surrounding bone. The micro-vibrations increase the rate of bone remodeling and allow the teeth to move 38-50% faster.
Is Accelerated Orthodontics Safe?Accelerated Orthodontics has a good safety profile, as indicated by university studies in humans. It is considered safe and under normal conditions of use with a conventional fixed orthodontic appliance.
If it accelerates tooth movement, will it cause more discomfort?No. Accelerated Orthodontics is well tolerated and does not increase the level of discomfort associated with orthodontic treatment.
Accelerated Orthodontics is light, comfortable, hands-free and can be used 20 minutes per day while engaged in a variety of daily activities including reading, watching television, listening to music and doing school work.
