One of the most common questions asked to any orthodontics is “how long will my treatment take?” On average, traditional braces can take up to two years or more to straighten the teeth. Though the outcome is always worth the duration of tretment, many patients would prefer to shed their braces faster than traditional treatment allows. Here at Hatcher Orthodontics we are proud to offer the latest technology in orthodontics to help your smile finish even faster. It’s called AcceleDent.
AcceleDent is a light, comfortable, hands free appliance used 20 minutes per day as a complement to braces or invisalign to accelerate tooth movement. AcceleDent can be worn while watching TV, working on the computer, reading, or doing many other tasks. AcceleDent works by generating small vibrations, or micropulses, enhancing the movements directed by Dr. Hatcher or Dr. Jones, allowing for faster tooth movement. Research has shown that tooth movement can be accelerated 50% faster than with traditional orthodontics alone. Results that used to require 2-3 years of treatment can often now be achieved in a little over a year!
We belive everyone deserves a great smile, and you should be able to achieve it as quickly as possible. Ask our orthodontists, Dr. Hatcher and Dr Jones, whether AcceleDent is the right choice for you!
