Straightening the smile doesn't always require conventional braces. Metal brackets and wires can hide the smile during months-even years-of traditional orthodontic treatment. Thankfully, Dr. Alkhoury and the team at Brentwood Family Dental offer LaserProx™, which can provide faster, more affordable results than alternatives such as Invisalign®.

LaserProx™ (a proprietary name trademarked by Dr. Alkhoury) is different from comprehensive orthodontics. It involves using low-level cold laser therapy in conjunction with thinner orthodontic wires to produce faster results with less pain and discomfort. The name LaserProx™ comes from combining cold laser Class 4 therapy with minimal proximal reduction using light NiTi arch wires. These thinner wires use "memory shaping," which is key to repositioning teeth and getting them straighter, faster. The laser therapy reduces inflammation around the roots of the teeth caused by movement. Orthodontic treatment is an inflammatory process, and by reducing or even eliminating the inflammation, teeth will reposition themselves faster. Most patients experience results in as little as three to four months with impressive results.

Using light NiTi arch wires have been shown in scientific studies to be effective in (1) reducing discomfort and pain from orthodontic treatment and (2) accelerating orthodontic tooth movement.

This same laser therapy has also been used for other applications besides orthodontics. It has been used in surgical procedures to reduce post-operative symptoms for problems such as craniofacial pain disorders (including TMJ, TMD, and myofascial pain) and helping with trigger points for muscle pain.

There are many ways to realign the smile. While the most conventional method includes visiting an orthodontist for metal braces, other patients may learn about the advantages of Invisalign®. However, LaserProx™ is in a category all by itself. It allows patients to enjoy better realignment faster and in a less expensive manner than other methods. This technology is unique to Dr. Alkhoury's practice, and provides patients with yet another solution for misaligned teeth. Patients with mild to moderate misalignment can use LaserProx™ to improve the aesthetic appearance of their smile without breaking the bank!

We would be happy to provide you with the knowledge to make the best decision regarding your smile.
