Actual Treatment Time with AcceleDent



  • Class I
  • Crowding
  • Deep bite
  • End to end canine occlusion
  • Upright incisors
  • Midline discrepancy with mandible postured to left
  • Positive medical history requiring MRI’s each year in the month of November

While removable appliances like Invisalign would eliminate the need to remove and re-bond  metal braces for the patient’s annual MRI, the parents were concerned about compliance.


Dr. Mayhew addressed their concerns by recommending the use of AcceleDent and the Damon system. This combination addressed the parent’s desire to have a fixed and Doctor controlled appliance with a means to expedite care, so that the patient’s treatment would be completed before the next MRI requirement.


  • Damon® self-ligating brackets


The patient started treatment after the most recent MRI and completed care 10 weeks prior to the next scheduled MRI.
