Invisalign® Braces: What is Accelerated Orthodontics?

Do you find yourself hesitating to smile because of misaligned teeth? Or perhaps you’ve considered orthodontic treatment but are put off by the thought of wearing braces for years?

At V Smile Family Dental, we understand your concerns and have a solution that can work for you—accelerated orthodontics! With this innovative technique, guided by our experienced orthodontist, Dr. Kallam, we can straighten your teeth in a fraction of the time traditional orthodontics would take.

What is Accelerated Orthodontics?

Accelerated orthodontics is a revolutionary approach that shortens the treatment time of traditional orthodontics. When it comes to Invisalign, the acceleration process may vary depending on the individual’s needs. The overall Invisalign treatment usually takes anywhere from 6–18 months.

Accelerated orthodontics is an additional treatment we can use along with your Invisalign clear aligners to speed your treatment time up to as fast as 3–6 months!

At V Smile Family Dental, we strive to make orthodontics as comfortable, convenient, and efficient as possible for our patients. With our accelerated orthodontics treatment, guided by our highly skilled orthodontist, Dr. Kallam, you can achieve the smile of your dreams in no time.

How Does Acceleration Work?

Acceleration technology uses a pinhole treatment in conjunction with Invisalign clear aligners to speed up the process of teeth alignment. It is a technique that helps the bone between your teeth remodel, which allows the teeth straightening process to move much faster and more comfortably than previously possible​.

This is achieved using micro-osteoperforations (MOPs) and micro-arch distalizers (MADs). Both MOPs and MADs provide a way to accelerate tooth movement and reduce the overall treatment time in orthodontics.


Micro-osteoperforations (MOPs) are small holes made in the bone around the tooth that need to be moved. These holes are created using a specialized device that penetrates the gum tissue and the bone. The creation of these small perforations stimulates the release of cytokines, proteins that signal the body to increase the rate of bone remodeling. Bone remodeling is a crucial part of orthodontic tooth movement, as it involves the breakdown of bone in the path of the moving tooth and the formation of new bone in the space left behind.


On the other hand, micro-arch distalizers (MADs) are devices used to move upper molars back in the mouth without the need for extractions or traditional headgear. These devices are attached to the teeth and exert a continuous light force to shift the molars backward. This technique is often used in cases where there is crowding, or not enough space for the other teeth to align properly.

Why Should I Be Interested in Acceleration for Invisalign Braces?

Acceleration for Invisalign braces presents several compelling benefits. It shortens treatment time, enhances comfort, and allows you to achieve a beautiful smile in a more convenient and discreet way compared to traditional braces. 

The Acceleration process is considered safe and effective. It can significantly reduce the time required for Invisalign treatment, often allowing patients to wear the clear aligner trays for about a quarter to half the time a regular treatment might take, with some treatments taking as little as 90 days​!

Acceleration can only be provided by seeing a qualified dentist in person, and it’s not available from mail-order aligner companies​​.

Aftercare for Acceleration Patients

After an Acceleration treatment, patients can return to their regular activities immediately. However, some specific aftercare guidelines are recommended for the first 48 hours, including avoiding anti-inflammatory drugs like aspirin or ibuprofen (since Acceleration works because of an inflammatory reaction), avoiding spicy foods or foods high in citric acid, and possibly rinsing with hydrogen peroxide depending on your unique needs.

After your teeth have been successfully straightened, we recommend a longer-term retainer to be worn at night to prevent teeth from becoming crooked again. This is an essential step in maintaining the results of your accelerated Invisalign treatment.
