Accelerated Orthodontics Q & A

What is accelerated orthodontics?

Traditional braces sometimes require years of treatment time, which can be a turn-off for adults looking to improve their smiles. At Glow Orthodontics, they offer accelerated orthodontics, which enables most patients to straighten their teeth in less than a year.

With the PROPEL Orthodontics system, state-of-the-art technology speeds up the movement of teeth by working with your biology and stimulating the bones that surround your teeth.

This system helps your teeth move faster and more predictably into their desired position. In many cases, accelerated orthodontics — combined with other methods — can help move your teeth 50% faster than if you’re wearing Invisalign® or traditional braces.

Is accelerated orthodontics right for me?

The best way to know if accelerated orthodontics is the right treatment for you is to book a consultation with the team at Glow Orthodontics. Similar to traditional braces or Invisalign, you’ll need a full dental evaluation to determine if your teeth and gums will respond well to treatment.

Some patients who have extreme periodontal disease or other oral health problems might not be candidates for accelerated orthodontics.

How does accelerated orthodontics treatment work?

Accelerated orthodontics is a way to enhance the effects of traditional braces or Invisalign. With the PROPEL system, your orthodontist creates a small amount of trauma to your bones and gums, which stimulates growth and movement more quickly.

Before your treatment, your orthodontist also shaves the gums and bones into a shape that will allow your teeth to move easily.

The treatment is completely comfortable, as the team uses a local anesthetic for the procedure.

What are the benefits of accelerated orthodontics?

The most exciting benefit of accelerated orthodontics is that it can significantly shorten treatment time. With this type of service, you’ll also need fewer office visits, and you won’t need any invasive surgical procedures.

Accelerated orthodontics can also be used with all types of braces, including traditional metal braces, clear braces, Invisalign, and more.

PROPEL is associated with minimal discomfort, there's no recovery time, and you can return to your normal activities immediately.
