Accelerated Orthodontics Q & A

What is accelerated orthodontics? 

Accelerated orthodontics refers to methods the RISUS Orthodontics team uses to speed up certain forms of orthodontic treatment. With these types of modern advances in the field of orthodontics, you can potentially straighten your teeth in months rather than years. 

WIth accelerated orthodontics, you just come into the office at strategic points during your time wearing braces for short, simple treatment sessions. In some cases, you can cut your time wearing braces in half!

What types of technologies are used in accelerated orthodontics? 

The team at RISUS Orthodontics uses two primary types of accelerated orthodontics strategies that incorporate innovative technology: 

PROPEL® 

This is an orthodontic procedure that helps speed up treatment. By coming into the office at several points during your stint wearing braces for PROPEL treatment sessions, you can significantly reduce your treatment period. RISUS Orthodontics dental professionals use the VPro5™ by PROPEL, which emits micro-vibrations that stimulate accelerated tooth movement and bone remodeling. The result is that teeth move into proper alignment more quickly. 

Laser Dentistry

Low-level laser therapy can be used to stimulate and boost the restructuring process of the bones around your teeth. Studies have proven the effectiveness of laser therapy in accelerated orthodontics. Laser therapy treatment sessions are safe and comfortable.

Are accelerated orthodontics strategies safe? 

Yes, accelerated orthodontics is perfectly safe under the guidance and supervision of the experienced team at RISUS Orthodontics. PROPEL and laser dentistry are tried and true methods that have helped deliver shorter treatment times and better cosmetic results to a host of patients. 

There are also no reported negative outcomes of accelerated orthodontics methods. In some cases, you may experience some slight sensitivity after a treatment session. However, this should subside on its own relatively quickly and have no lingering side effects. If that isn’t the case and you experience any recurring pain or discomfort, please let the office know right away.
