Four Ways to Speed Up Orthodontic Treatment
PROPEL® ORTHODONTICS IN MIAMI
EFFECTIVE TEETH STRAIGHTENING WITH THE HELP OF OUR MIAMI Orthodontic Provider
At Biscayne Dental & Facial Aesthetics, we are proud to offer the PROPEL® orthodontics procedure to help you get a beautiful smile and straight teeth in less time. PROPEL® uses an accelerated treatment option, known as micro-osteoperforations to help move teeth by encouraging your jawbone to regrow quicker and guide teeth into the desired placement.
Through PROPEL® orthodontic technology, our Miami orthodontic patients can see up to a 50% decrease in the necessary time wearing braces.
HOW DOES PROPEL® WORK?
When you work with Biscayne Dental & Facial Aesthetics, we will provide you with a thorough dental examination to determine if you are a good candidate for PROPEL® orthodontic services in Miami that includes x-rays to provide a detailed look at the bone under your teeth.
The PROPEL® treatment process can include:
- An x-ray and physical examination of the bone under the teeth to determine if they are healthy enough for the treatment process
- A local anesthetic around the gums to numb the procedure areas
- The PROPEL® device is used to make small holes in the gum and directly into the bone
- Teeth that are being moved will have three smalls holes placed around them to accelerate the regeneration of the bone and move teeth into place
This process helps teeth move more easily into the desired locations by allowing the bone to become more pliable and therefore the teeth can move into position with minimal effort. The body’s natural reaction to the small drilling allows for increased blood flow to the treated areas and allows bone regrowth to happen at an accelerated pace.
Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT)
LLLT can be used to accelerate orthodontic treatment. During this procedure, a medical grade Nd:YAG laser is used to stimulate the cells involved in tooth movement. This light stimulation causes bone remodeling that results in faster tooth movement. This painless treatment can be done in conjunction with monthly appointments and only takes a few minutes. LLLT is also used to decrease pain in areas of the teeth or muscles. Some of the additional benefits of low-level laser therapy include:
- Promoting wound healing
- Managing pain and reduce pain after orthodontic adjustments
- Faster orthodontic tooth movement
- Reducing orthodontic treatment time
- Accelerate healing of soft tissue injuries
High Frequency Vibrations
Like LLLT, high-frequency vibrations can also stimulate the cells involved in tooth movement resulting in softer bone around teeth. When teeth move through softer bone, the movements are faster, less painful and safer. High-frequency vibrations are delivered through a portable device the patient takes home and uses for about five minutes per day. This option gives patients control over their treatment and allows them to use the device at their discretion but especially when the teeth are sore to reduce pain. The benefits of high-frequency vibrations include:
- Powerful, gentle vibrations that secure aligners and retainers to the teeth
- Activation of the natural biology, leading to a reduction in treatment time
- Elevated level of comfort for patients
- Optimized aligner seating
- Improved predictability of treatment
- Reduced alterations throughout treatment
- Optimized retention of treatment results
FASTER BRACES IN MIAMI
THE RADIANT RESULTS YOU WANT, IN A FRACTION OF THE TIME
With over 25 years of experience in orthodontics, top Miami cosmetic dentist Dr. Julio Hernandez is the best around! You can have a sparkling smile in no time. One way to speed up the treatment is by using faster braces. Faster braces use a special type of orthodontic bracket called a “self-ligating” bracket. Self-ligating orthodontic brackets use a metal clip or door to hold the archwire, whereas conventional orthodontic brackets use metal wires or colored elastic rings to secure the archwire.

WHY CHOOSE FASTER BRACES?
As the name suggests, Faster Braces will shorten treatment time by four to six months compared to conventional braces.

There are several other benefits to using these self-ligating brackets. These include:
- Reducing the number of appointments,
- Eliminating friction between the bracket and the archwire,
- Minimizing discomfort,
- Greatly reducing or eliminating the need for extractions,
- Giving broader and more beautiful smiles
The cost of these brackets is slightly higher than conventional braces but the benefits far outweigh the costs. If you are interested in finishing your orthodontic treatment as quickly as possible, Faster Braces would be an excellent choice for you. The average cost of braces varies for adults and children. For your convenience, we offer 0% interest-free financing for the best braces in Miami! The cost of braces can be cheap with insurance because dental insurance will help pay for a large portion of the cost. Please call our office to verify your dental insurance information.
Our 360 Wellness Spa, located in the heart of Midtown Miami, near downtown Miami and the beaches, also offers other ways to speed up orthodontic treatment. One option is Propel Orthodontics. Propel accelerates orthodontic treatment by using an instrument to stimulate the bone for both braces and Invisalign® clear aligners. Some orthodontic patients can also have faster treatment results using Invisalign® instead of braces. This is due to recent advancements in the Invisalign® technology that allows for quicker tooth movements than conventional or faster braces.
