What is accelerated invisalign treatment?

User Level:
Patient
Posted by: Quichaved  (4 years ago)
Hello! I am 20 and my upper teeth is not aligned properly. I don’t like wearing metal braces all day long. I have seen my cousin wearing it and was really fed up with it. She says that while chewing the food particles get stuck inside and sometimes the metal parts comes off. My friend suggested an accelerated invisalign treatment in Wilk & Wilk Orthodontics, Oakville. She says that we will have to wear a simple hand free mouthpiece for 20 minutes. Is it true? Has anyone done this treatment before?

Wow! You are wiling to have surgery to drill holes in your bone just to shorten orthodontics treatment! You are really impatient. You know this surgery also costs a good deal, right?

No orthodontic device worn 20 minutes a day will move teeth. It takes 10 hours a day to START teeth moving. Clear aligners or braces must be worn 24 hours a day.

Wilkodontics will SHORTEN the time of treatment not shorten the time you wear the appliance each day. By the way, I took a course in this technique about 6 months ago. It seemed like a pretty radical and expensive way to speed up orthodontics to me.

Your friend is talking about Acceledent not Wilko. It works but how well is debatable. I've seen many Invisalign patients that cut their time in half. There is some research on it showing the effectiveness but not a lot.
