Actual Treatment Time with AcceleDent



  • Class I

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.
