What is accelerated orthodontics?

When you’re ready to begin the process of moving closer to your ideal smile, one of the first things you might ask is how long it will take from start to finish. Accelerated orthodontics is an approach to orthodontic care that delivers impressive results in a shorter time frame, as compared to traditional metal braces.

Not so long ago there were fewer options when it came to the tools used in orthodontic treatment. Advancements in dental technology have led to options that were simply unimaginable just a generation ago. Accelerated orthodontics is an excellent example of just how far orthodontic care has come.

SPEED System™

The SPEED System is an innovative orthodontic approach that uses a special Spring Clip™, a device manufactured with a very elastic material that stores energy to deliver a constant-yet-gentle amount of force. Think of it as like a “computer chip” right inside your braces that is “programmed” by the orthodontist when the braces are placed on your teeth. The result – your teeth move into optimal alignment without the pauses that come with traditional brackets and elastic ties.

With minimal discomfort and potentially fewer trips to the orthodontist chair, the SPEED system is the Speedy way to a straight smile.

Empower Self-Ligating Brackets

The smarter alternative to traditional metal braces is here! Rad Orthodontics is proud to offer Empower Self Ligating Brackets to patients in College Park, Potomac, Bethesda and North Bethesda.

While rubber bands are typically used by orthodontists to hold braces in place, Empower Brackets use a clip to secure the arch wire in place – allowing for quick and easy wire adjustments and less visits to the orthodontist.

Some of the benefits of Empower include:

  • Comfortable Design: Empower Brackets feature precise designs with contoured edges to keep the surface against your cheek and lips smooth.
  • Less Hassle with No Ligatures: Ligatures, or rubber bands, can stain and wear out over time – causing them to need replacement more often.
  • Self Ligating Clips: Wire adjustments are quick and virtually more comfortable with Empower’s high-quality self ligating clips.
  • Versatile Design: No more one-size-fits-all when it comes to straightening teeth. With Empower’s cutting-edge yet versatile design and unique options available, Dr. Rad can customize your treatment based on your specific needs.
