How Does Acceleration Work?Advances in Invisalign technology have made it possible for you to accelerate your Invisalign treatment and have a brand new smile, and many patients finish their entire treatment in as little as a few months. To accelerate your Invisalign treatment, we will do the following:
- We will take x-rays to determine how Acceleration technology will work with your smile
- We will examine your bone structure to make sure that your teeth are in proper shape for acceleration.
- We will explain the acceleration process so that you know the steps involved
- We will numb your mouth and make sure you are relaxed before your treatment
- To start the acceleration, we will create pinholes in between your teeth. These pinholes help the bones of your teeth shift faster so that the entire Invisalign process is faster

- Fewer visits to the dental office to get a new set of aligners
- You don’t have to endure mouth pain from orthodontic treatment for as long
- You get to have the smile that you have always hoped for much faster

Aftercare for Acceleration PatientsYou don’t need to worry about downtime after your acceleration procedure. While you don’t need to take off school or work, we will give you aftercare instructions:
- Don’t take anti-inflammatory drugs like aspirin or ibuprofen for 48 hours after treatment. Acceleration relies on an inflammatory reaction to work properly, and we don’t want to counteract it.
- Don’t eat spicy foods or foods with citrus, as they may cause discomfort
- Based on your individualized reaction to the procedure, we may give you additional instructions
- Brush and floss like you normally would
