Our orthodontists are experienced at collaborating with specialists who perform an advanced surgical technique called Surgically Facilitated Orthodontic Treatment (SFOT). What is SFOT? SFOT is a dental surgery that provides targeted benefits to patients with more complex orthodontic needs and a desire for a shorter treatment timeline. How does SFOT work?
It artificially creates a temporarily weakened bone state that allows teeth to move more quickly into the desired position, then returns the dental environment to full strength. An outpatient surgery, SFOT delivers the following results:
Dramatically shortened treatment times
No need for extractions in many cases
Jaw bone widening and strengthening
The bottom line? A more functional bite and a more beautiful smile in much less time.
Which accelerated orthodontic treatment plan is right for you? Our experienced orthodontists can discuss the benefits of each approach with you, keeping your needs, concerns, and goals in mind. Their goal? To empower you to decide on a path to accelerated orthodontics that's right for you.
