What Technological Advances Can Accelerate the Duration of Braces Treatment?

Has the idea of long-term bracewear deterred you from achieving your dream smile? Dr. Moffett at Moffett Walley Orthodontics harnesses the latest technological advancements to significantly reduce treatment time. Let’s explore how these innovations not only enhance the efficiency of your treatment but also make the experience smoother and more comfortable. First, we’ll look into the advanced braces systems that can accelerate your orthodontic journey.

Advanced Braces Systems 

Dr. Moffett and our team at Moffett Walley Orthodontics leverage advanced braces systems to accelerate your treatment time. These innovations ensure your journey to a perfect smile is both efficient and comfortable.

  • Self-Ligating Braces: These braces use a unique clip mechanism instead of traditional elastic bands to hold the wire in place. This design reduces friction, allowing teeth to move more freely and comfortably, which means fewer adjustments and office visits.
  • Customizable Aligners: Tailor-made aligners, like Invisalign, fit snugly over your teeth and are designed for efficiency. They gently shift your teeth into place without frequent adjustments, making them a convenient option for those with busy lifestyles.
  • Modern Materials and Designs: Today’s braces and aligners are crafted from advanced materials that enhance effectiveness and comfort. Lightweight, durable, and less intrusive, these materials contribute to a more pleasant orthodontic experience.

With these hardware advancements, Dr. Moffett at Moffett Walley Orthodontics is committed to making your treatment as smooth as possible. While hardware advancements are pivotal, let’s see how adding a bit of vibration can spur movements even more.

Vibration Technology

At Moffett Walley Orthodontics, Dr. Moffett incorporates cutting-edge vibration technology to accelerate braces treatment. Here’s how it works:

  • Micro-Oscillation Devices: Tools like AcceleDent and Propel utilize gentle, high-frequency vibrations to stimulate bone remodeling, facilitating faster tooth movement.
  • Daily Use Benefits: Just a few minutes of daily use with these devices can significantly reduce your time in braces. The vibrations enhance cellular activity in the jawbone, promoting quicker adjustments.
  • Real Results: Patients have reported quicker treatment times and improved comfort. Case studies show that incorporating vibration technology can shorten braces duration by several months.

We ensure our patients at Moffett Walley Orthodontics benefit from the latest advancements in orthodontic care. Next, let’s illuminate another transformative technology—lasers that enhance treatment precision and speed.

Laser Technology

Dr. Moffett uses laser technology to enhance the efficiency and comfort of orthodontic treatment at Moffett Walley Orthodontics. Here’s how this advanced technology works:

Soft Tissue Lasers

These lasers are used to contour the gums, exposing more of the tooth surface. This allows for better brace placement and faster tooth movement. The precision of soft tissue lasers minimizes discomfort and speeds up the healing process.


This laser therapy stimulates bone and tissue around the teeth, promoting faster tooth movement and recovery. By enhancing cellular activity, photobiomodulation aids in quicker adjustments and reduces overall treatment time.

Dual Benefits

Laser technology not only accelerates the orthodontic process but also improves comfort. Patients experience less soreness and faster healing, making the treatment more pleasant.

With the help of laser technology, we can achieve faster, more precise orthodontic results. Next, let’s explore how remote monitoring tools keep your treatment on track and minimize office visits.
