Temporary Anchorage Devices

For orthodontic patients with certain malocclusions, braces alone cannot create the ideal bite needed for a healthy and stable smile. Orthodontists use appliances such as headgear and elastics, and in extreme cases even surgery, to ensure patients have properly functioning bites. Temporary anchorage devices are a great tool many orthodontists use instead of headgear or surgery for eligible patients.

Stephen, the patient
Dear Dr. S.,
My orthodontist recently suggested a device called Acceledent to speed up my orthodontic treatment. I don’t know much about it, and it seems crazy that putting something that vibrates on my teeth will help them move, but he’s convinced it works. I’d love to get out of these braces as soon as possible, so is my orthodontist right – will Acceledent speed up my treatment?
Sincerely,
Alex G.
