What Are Fast-Braces? or How to Speed Up Straightening Your Teeth?
You could straighten your teeth with a variety of methods these days: traditional braces, Invisalign, 6 Months Smile, MTM just to name a few. Irrespective of the mode, there are options to speed up the process.
The principle is based on how teeth move: bone remodeling (formation and resorption) around the roots of the teeth. When going through orthodontic treatment, irrespective of the method, teeth are being forced/pushed which of course initiates changes at the bone around the roots of the teeth. The same thing happens when there is trauma at the bone level; activity at the cellular level increases to counteract the effects of trauma. With that in mind, there are two main methods currently that can increase the bone remodeling around the roots of the teeth being moved: Propel as well as AcceleDent.
The main difference between the two methods is compliance in a sense that the regular use of AcceleDent is up to the patient however Propel is done by the dentist however possibly twice during the treatment.
