Accelerated orthodontics

Beautiful smiles, reduced treatment times

Experts at accelerated orthodontics, Smart, Kokich & Quinn offer several clinically proven ways to reduce orthodontic treatment time while making sure we still deliver stellar results.

By staying on top of recent advances in orthodontic science and interdisciplinary dentistry, our orthodontic group is able to offer three accelerated-orthodontic treatments that can significantly shorten therapeutic timelines.

Accelerated orthodontics and Acceledent

For patients committed to non-surgical accelerated orthodontics who are willing to put daily effort into their treatment, Acceledent offers an easy and gentle way to reduce treatment times by up to 50% according to a U.S.-based clinical trial.

With gentle vibrations created by a comfortable, hands-free, oral device called the Acceledent Aura, your teeth will begin to move more quickly into the preferred position. It requires daily discipline but provides dramatic, non-surgical results for the right candidates.

Propel accelerated orthodontics

What is Propel and how does it work? Propel is a minimally invasive orthodontic procedure that stimulates bone growth to reduce orthodontic treatment times up to 50 or 60%. By stimulating the bone around your teeth using Propel, our orthodontists are able to harness your natural biology to enhance bone remodeling.

Like our other accelerated orthodontic treatments, Propel is designed to be used in conjunction with Invisalign® or traditional braces to dramatically reduce treatment times. Best of all, since Propel is a one-time, micro-invasive procedure, it gets you on the fast track to straighter teeth without daily maintenance.

      Surgically Facilitated Orthodontic Treatment

      Our doctors mastery of a surgical technique called surgically facilitated orthodontic treatment (or SFOT) provides targeted benefits to patients with more complex orthodontic needs and a desire for a shorter treatment timeline.

      It artificially creates a temporary weakened bone state that allows teeth to move more quickly into the desired position, then returns the dental environment to full strength. An outpatient surgery, SFOT delivers the following results:

      • Dramatically shortened treatment times
      • No need for extractions in many cases
      • Jaw bone widening and strengthening

      The bottom line? A more functional bite and a more beautiful smile in much less time.

      Which accelerated orthodontic treatment plan is right for you? Our doctors can discuss the benefits of each approach with you, keeping your needs, concerns, and goals in mind, and ultimately help you decide on a path that's right for you.
