Accelerated Orthodontics in Venice, Florida
Straighten your teeth effectively in 3 to 8 months
If you are in need of teeth straightening but dread the idea of having to wear braces for several years, you might benefit from a breakthrough orthodontic procedure called accelerated orthodontics. Orthodontic treatment usually takes 18 to 36 months, but with accelerated orthodontics, treatment time can often be reduced to 3 to 8 months. Dr. Feldman can perform this procedure for you, in coordination with your orthodontist.
How does Accelerated Orthodontics work?
Traditional orthodontics move your teeth and tooth roots without moving the bone that supports them. This takes a long time and puts strain on the bone. The accelerated orthodontics procedure consists of making small vertical grooves in the bone tissues. These grooves allow your bone tissues to move along with your teeth. Using this method, your teeth can be moved faster, and without strain on the bone.

As part of your initial examination, Dr. Feldman will use our 3D CT scanner to obtain detailed, 360° images of your teeth, jaws and head. This will help him to formulate a precise treatment plan.
Quick, efficient procedure
This minor surgical procedure only requires local anesthesia, and oral sedation is also available. Dr. Feldman will be assisted by two highly trained dental assistants and a registered nurse, so that the procedure can be performed quickly and efficiently, reducing healing time and making the procedure more comfortable.
Dr. Feldman can also provide bone and gum grafting at the same time, as needed.
This procedure may result in minor discomfort for a few days after treatment—however, with accelerated orthodontics there is usually much less discomfort than with traditional orthodontic treatment.
