In our fast paced world our patients, especially adults, are looking for fast solutions for their dental problems. Now with the latest advancements in technology it is possible to decrease the time in braces to half. And for adults who are looking for a fast and invisible option, we can use Invisalign with Piezocision ( accelerated orthodontics). The research has shown that Piezocision significantly decreases the total orthodontic treatment time (i.e. Localised piezoelectric alveolar decortication for orthodontic treatment in adults: A randomised controlled trial by Charavet et. al, J Dent Res 2016)
