How Accelerated Orthodontics Can Speed Up Your Treatment

A concern some patients have about beginning orthodontic treatment is how long the process takes. Averaging around one to three years, have you ever wondered if you could achieve the results of a beautifully aligned smile without the waiting that goes into it? You’re in luck! Kottemann Orthodontics has the solution for you. With the help of accelerated orthodontics, we can speed up your treatment up to 50%. Read on to learn more about the treatments we offer and how accelerated orthodontics can speed it up!


AcceleDent System

You can count on this small dental appliance to fast-track your care with the perfect results! The AcceleDent System is a hands-free device that is used in conjunction with braces or Invisalign. This pain-free treatment applies gentle vibrations, known as micro-pulses, against your teeth and gums to stimulate movement.

All you need to do is place the appliance’s mouthpiece in your mouth for twenty minutes daily. You may feel a slight tingling sensation similar to an electric toothbrush when you first begin using it, but this will diminish the more often you use the device. You can relax during these twenty minutes by watching TV, reading, or listening to music while the AcceleDent System does all the work!



Smile alignment is a quicker process at a young age while your bones are still malleable. They become less and less moldable over the years until they finish growing in your late teens. With the help of Propel treatment, we are able to soften your bones again and decrease your time in your appliance.

Our incredible orthodontists, Dr. Bill, Dr. Kraig, Dr. Scott, and Dr. Alisha, use Propel to conduct a simple procedure known as micro-osteoperforation. They make tiny perforations the size of a pinhole on the bone surrounding your teeth to activate the tissue, releasing calcium to create new bone. During this time, the bone becomes softer and less resistant to movement, allowing your braces or Invisalign to step in and straighten your teeth up to 50% faster. 



Finally, we offer OrthoPulse as another means of achieving your perfect smile faster. This easy at-home device can be used every day for just ten minutes during your braces or Invisalign treatment. Not only can it accelerate your care plan by up to 50%, but it can even make your experience more comfortable. 

It utilizes pulses of low-intensity infrared red light to activate the bones surrounding the root of your teeth. OrthoPulse is the first of its kind approved by the FDA for expediting treatment and enhancing smile alignment results. 


How You Can Benefit From Accelerated Orthodontics

Faster Treatment Times

As mentioned, each of the above accelerated orthodontic methods promotes faster treatment, cutting down your time by up to 50%. We can help you achieve your smile goals faster than ever with the help of controlled, gradual teeth movement, granting you the confidence of a beautiful smile before you know it. The quicker your time wearing an appliance goes, the faster you will be able to enjoy the results.

All Options Work With Braces and Invisalign

AcceleDent System, Propel, and OrthoPulse each work with many treatment options, including braces and Invisalign, allowing you the flexibility of choosing the orthodontic appliance that best fits your lifestyle and teeth while still accelerating your treatment.

Other Ways To Accelerate Your Orthodontic Care

Keeping Your Teeth Clean

One of the most important ways to keep your smile aligning treatment on time is by brushing and flossing your teeth twice daily. Doing so after each meal removes bacteria and plaque from your mouth and gets rid of any food particles, allowing your appliance to work as efficiently as possible.

Being Mindful of Your Food Selections

Consuming hard, crunchy, or sticky foods can cause damage to your appliance and potentially slow your treatment time down. If something happens to your braces or Invisalign, we will do our best to get you into our office as soon as possible, but your teeth will be moving out of place during the wait.

Prioritize Your Follow-Ups

Your subsequent appointments after the start of treatment are thoughtfully spaced out. They allow our team dedicated time to check in on your progress, making prompt adjustments as necessary. We encourage you to prioritize them so your treatment stays on track!
