For the straightening of teeth, when possible, we will utilize Invisalign coupled with Acceledent. Before explaining what Acceledent is, allow us to describe Invisalign to you.
Invisalign® straightens teeth to give you the confidence of a great smile. Using a series of clear, virtually invisible aligners, Invisalign gently and gradually moves your teeth based on the treatment plan prescribed by your orthodontist or dentist. And, there are no wires or brackets so you’ll have confidence in your smile during and after treatment. In fact, most people won’t even know you’re wearing Invisalign. And, Invisalign aligners are removable so you can eat whatever you want and easily brush and floss as you normally would.
You’ll visit your orthodontist or dentist every 6-8 weeks and on average, Invisalign treatment takes less than a year.
The virtually invisible aligners, which are made of a thermoplastic material uniquely developed for the Invisalign treatment plan, look similar to teeth-whitening trays. A series of Invisalign aligners are custom-made for you, to move your teeth in the sequence determined by your doctor. Each set of aligners is worn for about two weeks before moving onto the next set of aligners in your treatment plan.
Acceledent is a process whereby one inserts a mouthpiece fitted around your existing orthodontics. One wouldwear the activator for as little as 20minutes everyday. This technology with AcceleDenta Aura can speed up tooth movement through the use of SoftPulse Technology®. Faster tooth movement may decrease the duration of your orthodontic treatment and may help to make your orthodontics more comfortable. This is one of the methods we employ to allow you to SmileFast.
Part of the way that orthodontics works is by changing or remodelling the bones surrounding your teeth. As this remodelling process is accelerated, your teeth move more quickly. That’s where AcceleDent comes in. By using tiny vibrations, or micropulses, SoftPulse Technology® is designed to speed up bone remodelling, accelerating tooth movement. Invisalign coupled with Acceledent is a method we employ to have you SmileFast!
