ArchWire Sequencing Changes with Accelerated Acceledent

From the article’s opening statement, “By offering a noninvasive accelerated orthodontic treatment solution to patients requesting faster and more comfortable treatment, orthodontists are simultaneously improving patient satisfaction and increasing practice efficiency without compromising the quality of their clinical results. However, from lecturing around the country and reading the literature, I’ve learned that too often orthodontists are unable to realize these benefits because they’ve coupled innovative technology with outdated treatment protocols. Specifically, orthodontists using traditional fixed bracket cases have failed to alter their wire sequencing and appointment intervals in order to effectively and efficiently realize the benefits of accelerated orthodontic treatment. The cases in this article demonstrate an example of how to adjust wire sequencing protocols when using a self-ligating bracket system and low pulsatile forces to enhance the rate of tooth movement.”
