Exploring New Innovations in Orthodontics



June 10, 2023

Today, orthodontic patients have more options for straighter teeth than ever before. No longer is it limited to metal braces.

In this blog post, we'll explore some of the latest advancements in orthodontic technology and look at how they can help improve the appearance of your smile.


Invisalign is a modern orthodontic system that uses a series of custom-made, nearly invisible aligners. The aligners are smooth, clear plastic material that fits snugly over your teeth. With each new set of aligners, your teeth will gradually move until they reach their final positions.

With Invisalign, you don't need to worry about wires or brackets irritating your mouth like traditional braces. The aligners are also removable, so you can take them out for special occasions or when brushing and flossing.

Invisalign is also an excellent option for those who want to minimize their orthodontic treatment time. The average Invisalign treatment lasts for about 12 months, but some people may see results even faster than that.

VPRO5 & Accelerated Orthodontics

Accelerate Your Braces or Invisalign Treatment with VPro5 by Propel. At Rykiss Orthodontics, the VPro5 appliance can help you get the perfect smile faster than ever before. Simply bite down on it for a few minutes each day, and watch your treatment time shorten dramatically! Not only does this tool speed up your treatment, but it offers so many other benefits as well.

Accelerated orthodontics is a recent innovation that enables patients to complete orthodontic treatment in a fraction of the time. Vibration Technology is Changing Orthodontics. High Frequency Vibration (HFV) helps speed up treatment by stimulating bone remodeling through the periodontal ligaments. This can be achieved with a device like VPRO5 from Rykiss Orthodontics, and we're seeing some pretty amazing results! Not only do patients experience faster treatment times, but their results are also more predictable. Even better -- vibration can even help during the retention phase of your treatment!

Clear ceramic braces

Clear ceramic braces offer a great option for those who want the corrective benefits of braces without the visibility of traditional metal braces.

Clear ceramic braces feature from a clear, translucent material and are less visible than metal braces. This makes them a popular choice for patients concerned about their teeth' aesthetics.

Clear ceramic braces use brackets and wires just like metal braces. The brackets can bond to the teeth or be clipped onto them.

These brackets feature a durable ceramic material designed to resist staining and discoloration. The wires used with clear ceramic braces are usually tooth-colored, which helps them blend in with the color of your teeth, achieving your dream smile.

Lingual Braces

These braces are fitted to the back of the teeth rather than the front, making them almost completely invisible when you smile. This is great for those who don't want to draw attention to their braces.

Lingual braces offer the same benefits as traditional metal braces, including a more efficient and effective treatment for crooked teeth, overbites, and underbites.

The process for fitting lingual braces is similar to traditional metal braces. It features a custom set of brackets and archwires designed and fabricated to fit each patient's smile.

The brackets are then attached to the teeth and tied together with the archwires. Once the braces are in place, regular adjustments take place to straighten the teeth and correct any bite problems.
