HOW DOES ACCELERATED ORTHODONTICS WORK?
If the idea of wearing braces for a long time prevents you from going ahead and improving your smile, accelerated orthodontic treatment may be for you.
Using a combination of oral surgery and orthodontics, you can get the beautiful smile you've always wanted in less time than you ever thought possible.
Thanks to this revolutionary technique, the teeth can be moved about four times faster, which means a total treatment time of three to nine months!
Dr. David Benguira is one of the only orthodontists in the country to offer this new technique.
How it works?
Accelerated orthodontics, begins with a minimally invasive surgical procedure, most often performed under local anesthesia, to remove a small part of the external surface of your alveolar bone; It is the bone that contains your dental alveoli.
For a short period of time, the mineral content of the bone will be reduced, allowing your braces to move your teeth very quickly to their desired positions. Your alveolar bone will heal quickly and will be even stronger than it was before the procedure!
Is it safe?
Absolutely! The process used to transiently reduce bone mineralization has been used for over 100 years in the field of orthopedics and has recently been modified to help straighten teeth faster. Of course, any surgery, as minimally invasive as it is, involves risks, Dr. David Benguira will be happy to explain in detail the procedure as well as its advantages and disadvantages to determine if you are eligible for this new treatment protocol.
Am I a candidate for this intervention?
Accelerated surgery can be performed on people of any age as long as all of your permanent teeth are present and you have healthy bone structure. For more information, please contact our office.
