Accelerated Orthodontics with Invisalign

Straightening teeth takes time. Besides, the longer your braces are on, the higher likelihood your teeth have of decalcification, gingival recession, and root resorption. This is where the idea of accelerated orthodontics comes into play. Instead of going through treatment for the traditional amount of time, accelerated orthodontics gets the job done much faster.

But what goes on with accelerated orthodontics? How is this even possible? We’ll share with how Invisalign treatment is able to see success while taking less time to accomplish. 

At Gardner Orthodontics, we speed up the process by using clear aligners. Clear aligners straighten teeth up to two times faster than traditional braces. Of course, when it comes to clear aligners, you will need to play an active part in the accelerated portion of treatment. If you’re not wearing your aligners, then your teeth won’t move! So make sure you make it a habit to wear your clear aligners as often as Dr. Gardner suggests.

Accelerated orthodontics is ideal for busy people who may struggle to find time to come into the office as frequently as braces treatment requires. Obviously, the faster process is ideal so you’re not going through treatment for a few years, but this type of treatment may also help you experience less pain than traditional braces. It’s certainly something to think about.

Orthodontic treatment is beneficial for more than just a beautiful new smile. Some additional perks of orthodontic treatment include having a better bite, more effective chewing, and being able to speak better. Many people who go through accelerated orthodontics are adults, so age really doesn’t matter.

If you’re looking to speed up the process of your orthodontic treatment, accelerated orthodontics with clear aligners might be your preferred option. To find out more, visit us online to schedule your complimentary consultation.
