Accelerated orthodontics, also known as accelerated orthodontic treatment or accelerated orthodontics procedures, refers to techniques and methods used to expedite the process of orthodontic treatment.
Accelerated orthodontics aims to reduce the overall treatment duration by utilizing various techniques to stimulate faster tooth movement.
For OC, the math is simple:
PITTS BRACKETS + THE PITTS PROTOCOLS
We have a bracket system that completes cases faster than aligners and still delivers Hollywood smiles.
Other more traditional and complex techniques include:
1. Micro-osteoperforations: Using a specialized tool, this method involves creating tiny perforations in the bone surrounding the teeth. The micro-injuries stimulate the bone remodeling process, allowing for faster tooth movement.
2. Photobiomodulation: Also known as low-level laser therapy, this technique utilizes specific wavelengths of light to enhance cellular activity and promote faster tooth movement.
3. Vibrational devices: Vibrational or high-frequency devices, such as AcceleDent®, may be used to apply gentle vibrations to the teeth and surrounding bone. These vibrations help accelerate tooth movement by stimulating bone remodeling.
4. Surgical procedures: In some cases, minor surgical interventions may be employed to facilitate tooth movement. This can involve repositioning or removing small amounts of bone or tissue to create an optimal environment for faster orthodontic treatment.
