Accelerated Orthodontics

Accelerated Orthodontics
You might be wondering what the difference is between dentistry and orthodontics. It’s a good question, and the answer is that dental treatment focuses on the health of your teeth whereas orthodontics is a branch of dentistry that is concerned with something called malocclusion. That’s just a big word to describe the way your teeth fit together.


You likely have heard about braces and maybe you even had them as a child, but there is a new approach to modern orthodontics that dramatically decreases the time it takes to get a beautiful smile. Accelerated orthodontics works to encourage new bone growth, and when that is combined with aligners or braces to straighten your teeth, it’s possible to shift your teeth into their ideal position much faster than before and with much less discomfort.
Accelerated orthodontic treatment can be necessary to repair a number of different malocclusions, including:

Traditional braces move your teeth at an average rate of about one millimeter per month, but with accelerated orthodontics teeth can be moved into place approximately 4 times faster. The treatment plan with traditional orthodontics that would last 18–36 months can now be reduced to just 3–8 months! What’s more, you now have many new options to choose from, including:
Grand Avenue Dental can help you make the best choice depending on your treatment plan and your lifestyle. For example, Invisalign trays are a great option for adults who don’t want to or can’t afford to have their looks affected by the traditional braces you might have had as a teenager. As the name suggests, they are nearly invisible so they don’t affect your appearance the way traditional braces can.
With the modern advances in orthodontics, you no longer have to put off treating your orthodontic problems because you don’t want to be embarrassed by the look of braces for long periods of time. Come in today for a consultation, and we’ll discuss which orthodontic treatment is best and will work the fastest for your teeth.
