Accelerated Orthodontics in Pittsburgh
A Faster Way To Effectively Straighten Your Teeth
If your teeth need straightening, but you simply can’t bear the thought of spending years in traditional braces, accelerated orthodontics may be an option for you. We are pleased to offer a new concept in orthodontic treatment: accelerated orthodontics that can effectively straighten your teeth in just 3–8 months.
How Does Accelerated Orthodontics Work?
Traditional methods of straightening teeth involve moving just your actual teeth. Accelerated orthodontics uses a technique where the doctor will gently create vertical grooves in the gums and outer edge of bone between your teeth. The purpose of this procedure is to allow the gums and bone to move along with the teeth, resulting in faster teeth straightening.

Our Accelerated Orthodontics Procedure
Dr. Bakuri collaborates with an experienced orthodontist to determine whether accelerated orthodontics is the most beneficial treatment plan for you. Your initial consultation will include a review of your medical and dental records and a thorough oral examination.
Dr. Bakuri will carefully explain the procedure in terms that are familiar to you. Please ask as many questions as you would like; he will be more than happy to answer them all. Our team takes the time to get to know you and to understand your goals and expectations.
Your orthodontist will place your braces and, about a week later, Dr. Bakuri will perform the minor surgery in our comfortable office.
Cone Beam CT Scan
We will capture highly detailed, three-dimensional views of your jawbone, teeth and gums to locate areas that will respond best to this procedure.
Our doctors use the high-tech CT scanner to precisely locate areas in your mouth needing treatment.
A Simple, In-Office Procedure
The incisions required for speedy results with accelerated orthodontics are minimally invasive, and the outpatient procedure is performed in our office with localized anesthesia. Dr. Bakuri will also provide gum and bone grafting treatment as needed.
It is possible that minor discomfort may be felt for a few days after the initial procedure; however, accelerated orthodontics usually causes much less discomfort than treatment with conventional orthodontics.
Your comfort is our top priority. Should you experience any discomfort, please let us know immediately so that we can provide you with relief.
