If you want to straighten your smile but don’t want to wait years for the results, accelerated orthodontics can make your dreams a reality. With accelerated orthodontics, your dentist or orthodontist can straighten teeth, adjust spacing, and close gaps, especially for the front teeth. Instead of taking two years, accelerated orthodontics will transform your smile in just four to eight months.
Accelerated orthodontics won’t work for every case, but is often a good choice for adult patients who want to correct the appearance of the front teeth. Dr. Fotovat will perform a complete examination to determine the best course of treatment. Besides using traditional orthodontic methods, like braces, patients will also undergo a minor, in-office procedure.
Treatment with accelerated orthodontics will also involve wearing braces. Patients can choose from metal, ceramic, or lingual braces. Although metal braces are a less expensive option, these brackets aren’t as aesthetically pleasing as the other choices. Ceramic braces blend in more with the natural tooth color and they are more esthetically pleasing.
Just as with traditional orthodontic treatment, regular appointments and routine care are key to your success. Brush at least twice a day and floss regularly. You may need to use floss threaders to get under the arch wire. To monitor progress, expect your doctor to schedule visits approximately every six weeks.
