If the idea of wearing braces for a long time prevents you from moving forward and enhance your smile, an accelerated orthodontic treatment may be for you.
Using a combination of oral surgery and traditional braces, you can get the beautiful smile you've always wanted in less time than you ever thought possible.
Thanks to this revolutionary technique, the teeth can be moved about four times faster, which means a total treatment time of three to nine months!
Dr David Benguira is one of the few orthodontists in the country to offer this new technique.
Accelerated Orthodontics, begins with a minimally invasive surgical procedure, usually performed under local anesthesia, to remove a small portion of the outer surface of your alveolar bone This is the bone that holds your tooth in their bony sockets.
For a short period of time, the bone mineral density is reduced, allowing your braces to move very quickly your teeth into their desired positions. Your alveolar bone will heal quickly and be even stronger than it was before the procedure!
Is it safe?
Absolutely! The process used to transiently reduce bone mineralization has been used for over 100 years in the field of orthopedics and was recently adapted to help straighten teeth faster. Of course, any surgery,evenif it is minimally invasive,has some risks, Dr. David Benguira will be happy to explain in detail the procedure and its pros and cons to determine if you are eligible for this new treatment protocol.
Am I a candidate for this procedure?
Accelerated surgery can be performed on people of any age as long as all your permanent teeth are present and you have a healthy bone structure. For more information please contact our office.
