Accelerated Orthodontics Q & A

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. 

What are some options for accelerated orthodontics?

The team at Rad Orthodontics offers more than one method to improve your smile as quickly as possible. Some options may be a better fit for your needs than others.

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. This moves your teeth into optimal alignment without the pauses that come with traditional brackets and elastic ties. 


In-Ovation is a relatively new option in the field of accelerated orthodontics. The system uses self-ligating brackets, which are smaller than traditional metal brackets. Because In-Ovation does not rely on metal or elastic ties to create pressure and shift teeth, treatment can take 40-50% less time than other options. 

Rad Orthodontics also offers a device called AcceleDentⓇ Aura. This technology delivers micropulses of vibration to your teeth and gums, which works to speed your overall treatment time. It’s a safe and effective way to reach your ideal smile in less time, and is available only by prescription through a dental professional. 

How do I know if accelerated orthodontics is for me?

When you first come in to meet with a Rad Orthodontics team member you’ll receive a thorough exam and consultation. Your practitioner discusses your treatment goals and explains which options are best suited to help you reach your desired results. 

Accelerated orthodontics is a great fit for many, but it isn’t right for everyone. During your consultation, you will receive all the details needed to make an informed decision about your treatment plan. Begin today by booking an appointment online or over the phone.
