Swiftly Achieve the Smile of Your Dreams With Dr. Bixler

Traditional orthodontic treatments like metal braces are effective ways to straighten your smile, but what if there was a faster way? At Turtle Town Dental, we offer accelerated orthodontic treatments to patients seeking a quicker, more convenient way to align their teeth and correct orthodontic issues. 

Our Churubusco, IN dentist, Dr. John Bixler, has years of experience when it comes to helping patients resolve crooked, misaligned, or unevenly gapped teeth. Discover if accelerated orthodontics are ideal for your oral health needs by reading our guide below. 


What Is Accelerated Orthodontics?

Accelerated orthodontic treatments can help you achieve a straighter smile in less time compared to traditional orthodontic methods. Their innovative designs can quickly correct your teeth and help you smile at your best in no time. Patients who are looking for a unique and quicker way to correct their misaligned, crooked, or gapped teeth are the best candidates for these treatments.

Self-Ligating Braces

Also known as Damon braces, self-ligating braces function similarly to traditional braces. They feature specialized clips on each bracket that you can adjust as needed to ensure a smooth and efficient treatment process. This unique design cuts down on the number of times you have to visit the dentist for tightening appointments. With self-ligating braces, your overall treatment time can be up to 35 percent faster than with conventional braces.

Invisalign® clear aligners don’t require any fragile brackets and bands, eliminating the need to visit our Churubusco office for repairs and adjustments. This innovative orthodontic treatment features discreet aligner trays for a comfortable and convenient way to straighten your smile. Invisalign aligners are easily removable for mealtimes and activities, making it the perfect solution for busy adults who want to achieve an aligned smile. 

Invisalign® Teen

Invisalign® Teen is a modified Invisalign treatment designed for growing mouths. Teenagers with all of their adult teeth can benefit from this treatment, while parents can have peace of mind knowing their child is wearing their aligners as required thanks to the blue dot indicator. Invisalign Teen also includes more trays in case your teen misplaces or damages their aligners.


Frequently Asked Questions

Are accelerated orthodontic treatments safe?

Accelerated orthodontic treatments are safe and effective ways to straighten your smile in less time than traditional orthodontic treatments. These modified orthodontic appliances feature unique ways to move your teeth into their correct position. Ask your dentist or orthodontist if you’re a candidate for accelerated treatment.

What is the fastest orthodontic treatment?

While a patient’s treatment time depends on their oral health needs and smile goals, some of the fastest orthodontic treatments include self-ligating braces and Invisalign. Ask your dentist if you’re a good candidate for accelerated orthodontic treatment and learn how you can straighten your smile faster. Keep in mind that traditional orthodontic care may be ideal for treating more severe orthodontic issues such as overbites and crossbites.

Who is a candidate for accelerated orthodontic treatments?

Candidates for traditional orthodontic treatments usually also qualify for accelerated treatment. It’s also mandatory that patients have all their adult teeth and good oral health to ensure successful treatment. Your dentist may recommend accelerated orthodontic methods if you want a faster way to resolve:

  • Crooked teeth
  • Misaligned teeth
  • Overcrowded teeth
  • Unevenly spaced teeth
Does insurance cover accelerated orthodontic treatments?

Most insurance providers cover accelerated orthodontic treatments, though some may qualify as cosmetic (elective) procedures. Contact your insurance company to learn more about the benefits entitled to you by your plan. You can also ask your dentist if their office offers in-house financing options to help cover out-of-pocket expenses.
