AcceleDent® Speeds Up Invisalign Treatment by up to 50%
Our Invisalign treatment includes the use of AcceleDent® – a comfortable electronic device that shortens the length of treatment for a patient by 50%.
Traditionally, tooth alignment is achieved by exerting a constant pressure on the teeth and thus stimulating bone remodelling, which is the key to changing the position of the teeth.
With AcceleDent®, this remodelling happens at a faster rate, so your teeth also align more quickly. It has also been shown to make the orthodontic experience more comfortable by decreasing tenderness during treatment.
What is Invisalign®?
Invisalign® has changed the face of orthodontics. Instead of wires attached to your teeth, your teeth can now be straightened invisibly.
Invisalign® is clear.You can straighten your teeth without anyone knowing.
Invisalign® is removable.Unlike braces, you can eat and drink what you want during treatment. You can also brush and floss normally to maintain good oral hygiene.
Invisalign® is comfortable.No metal brackets or wires to cause mouth irritation, and less time in the dentist’s chair getting adjustments.
The Invisalign® process has been proven effective in clinical research and in orthodontic practices nationwide. However, only a certified dentist like ours can undertake this procedure.
How Does Invisalign® Work?
1A set of aligners are worn for about 2 weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss.
2As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move – little by little, week by week – until they have straightened to the final position the dentist has prescribed.
3You will visit us approximately once every 6 weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned.
4Total treatment time averages 11 months with the average number of aligners worn during treatment between 18 and 30. This of course will vary from case to case.
The aligners are made through a combination of our dentists’ expertise and 3-D computer imaging technology provided by the Invisalign® company.
We now offer Invisalign Teen™ designed specifically with additional features that compensate for Teen treatment challenges. Click here to learn more.
