Newport Beach, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/02/2012 -- At some point in their lives, most people will end up wearing braces. From kids and teens who need to have their teeth straightened to adults who are getting their bite corrected, millions of patients are currently undergoing orthodontia.
While braces can correct a variety of orthodontic issues, most people are glad when the problems have been fixed and the braces can be taken off. In some cases, braces must be worn for years, involving numerous checkups and appointments.
A Newport Beach orthodontist has been getting a lot of attention lately for offering a product that can reduce the amount of time that his patients are in braces by 38 to 50 percent.
Dr. John DiGiovanni has been trained on the Acceledent System, which is an appliance that is safe and easy to use. Patients who use the FDA-approved product every day for just 20 minutes should see a marked increase in their orthodontic progress.
Dr. DiGiovanni was a consultant for the Acceledent and is now one of the first doctors to be able to provide this service for his patients. Patients who are interested in more information about the system may schedule a consultation with either Dr. DiGiovanni or Dr. Debra Cook.
Besides the Acceledent System, Dr. DiGiovanni offers his patients other types of innovative orthodontic services. For example, for those who are interested in Invisalign Newport Beach area Dr. DiGiovanni is happy to meet with them to discuss their options.
Invisalign® straightens the teeth using a series of clear, customized, removable appliances called aligners. Instead of wires and brackets, Invisalign is virtually undetectable, and the aligners fit smoothly and comfortably on the teeth.
“The Invisalign System combines advanced 3-D computer graphics technology with 100-year-old science of orthodontics,” an article on the office’s website noted, adding that Invisalign aligners are designed to move the teeth in small steps to the desired final position prescribed by the orthodontist.
“Each aligner is precisely calibrated and manufactured to fit your mouth at each stage of the treatment plan. Your first step is to visit our office to determine if this system is right for you. After sending precise treatment instructions, Invisalign uses advanced computer technology to translate these instructions in a sequence of finely calibrated aligners — as few as 12 or as many as 48.”
