Los Angeles Orthodontist Introduces Accelerated Orthodontics

girl-smiling-confidentlyIn our efforts to provide our patients with comfortable and effective orthodontic treatment, Dr. David Alpan offers a wide range of options designed to address your personal needs and goals. For instance, tooth-colored brackets and wires, lingual braces, and Invisalign clear braces offer discrete alternatives to traditional orthodontics. Now, we’re also proud to introduce new options for accelerated orthodontics, available from your Los Angeles orthodontist.

SoftPulse™ Technology with AcceleDent

AcceleDent is a small, easy-to-use device that utilizes SoftPulse™ technology to move your teeth faster through the guidance of your orthodontic treatment. AcceleDent applies precisely calibrated micropulses that allow for faster bone remodeling, and has been proven to accelerate conventional orthodontic treatment and make it more comfortable. The mouthpiece fits around existing orthodontics, and by wearing the activator for only 20 minutes a day, AcceleDent can move your teeth up to 30-40% faster.

Alveocentesis with the Propel® System

PROPEL® Orthodontics specializes in revolutionary approaches to moving teeth by developing innovative orthodontic devices and symptoms. The PROPEL® System consists of a process called Alveocentesis, which was developed by researchers to stimulate the alveolar (jaw) bone when orthodontic pressure is applied. The stimulation remodels the bone more efficiently, and can reduce your treatment time by up to 60%. Like AcceleDent, the PROPEL® System can be used in conjunction with any orthodontic treatment, including Invisalign clear braces. Unlike AcceleDent, however, Alveocentesis is performed in-office by Dr. Alpan during your regular orthodontic visits. The process only last a few minutes, and generates little to no discomfort.
