Advanced Treatments in College Park, MD

Rad Orthodontics uses advanced technology and materials in all our treatments. We use the highest-precision systems as well as the most sophisticated styles of custom braces, because they work better, faster, and more comfortably than traditional braces.

By combining the best techniques and materials available, we are able to deliver the highest level of orthodontic care. We also offer advanced treatments such as dentofacial orthopedics, accelerated treatments, TMJ and TMD treatments, and surgical treatments.

Dentofacial Orthopedics

While orthodontics entails the management of tooth movement, dentofacial orthopedics involves the guidance of facial growth and development. Dr. Rad can diagnose any misalignments in the teeth and jaw, as well as the facial structure, and can devise a treatment plan that integrates both orthodontic and dentofacial orthopedic treatments.

Incognito™

Incognito lingual braces are placed on the back side of your teeth, which makes them completely invisible. These unique braces are created using state-of-the-art technology and are the only 100% customized, invisible, fixed braces system on the market today. LEARN MORE

In-Ovation®

In-Ovation braces utilize self-ligating technology. This gives you faster results, more comfort, and shorter appointments than with traditional braces. In-Ovation is smaller and has a lower profile than other self-ligating brackets. With no elastic or metal ties, you will have less irritation, less plaque build-up, and less difficulty keeping your teeth clean. LEARN MORE

SPEED System™

SPEED System braces eliminate the need for elastic ties used with traditional braces by using an energy-storing component called a Spring Clip™. The Spring Clip follows the programmed instructions of Dr. Rad by applying a light, continuous force to move your teeth gently to the correct position. LEARN MORE

Accelerated Treatments

Rad Orthodontics is known for shorter-than-average treatment times, but we also offer treatment accelerators for patients who have an important event coming up or who just want to get their teeth straightened fast. Do you want your treatment to progress even faster? Do you have a wedding or other important event coming up? Consider these accelerated treatments to get your smile ready in time.

AcceleDent® Aura

Rad Orthodontics offers AcceleDent Aura, an FDA-cleared medical device. AcceleDent works by producing gentle pulses that safely and gently speed up the movement of your teeth. It is easy to use at home: just 20 minutes a day during your orthodontic treatment. AcceleDent can be used with the fixed braces or clear aligners prescribed by Rad Orthodontics. This lightweight, easy-to-use device has been clinically shown to accelerate orthodontic treatment by up to 50% as well as to decrease the discomfort associated with treatment. LEARN MORE

PROPEL Orthodontics

Rad Orthodontics offers PROPEL’s Vpro5TM accelerator, a quick and easy way to accelerate your treatment. The Vpro5TM uses high frequency vibration to encourage faster movement of your teeth during orthodontic treatment. With this daily five-minute acceleration treatment, patients can reduce their treatment time. The Vpro5TM gradually increases vibration frequency for maximum comfort, and includes light indicators to monitor treatment time. LEARN MORE

TMJ and TMD Treatment

If you experience pain in your temporomandibular joints (TMJ), difficulty opening your mouth, or frequent headaches, you may have temporomandibular disorder (TMD). Dr. Rad can determine if you have TMD and can create a customized treatment plan to help relieve your symptoms. LEARN MORE

Surgical Treatments

Surgical orthodontics, or orthognathic surgery, is a type of orthodontic treatment used to correct severe cases that include bad bites, jawbone abnormalities, and malocclusion. Orthognathic surgery will help properly align the jaw, and orthodontic braces will then be used to move the teeth into their proper position. LEARN MORE

Craniofacial Orthodontics

Craniofacial orthodontics is a sub-specialty of orthodontics that focuses on the treatment of patients with birth defects such as cleft lip and palate. Dr. Rad works in coordination with a surgical team to help treat patients born with cleft lip and palate. LEARN MORE
