Understanding non-extraction orthodontics, or “Sagittal First Orthodontics”
At Dr. Bostani’s Advanced Dental of Burbank, California, patients can enjoy faster treatment times using non-extraction orthodontics through the Sagittal First Orthodontic treatment plan. Instead of taking almost two years to provide orthodontic treatment, this specific treatment is designed to achieve results much faster, typically within one year instead of two. The treatment workflow, when compared to the standard protocol, ensures patients are excited throughout the process and are compliant with their treatment recommendations as well. This includes wearing bands or certain oral appliances to provide the best possible results during the orthodontic process.
How is the Sagittal First Orthodontic philosophy different from traditional orthodontic treatment?
With non-extraction orthodontics, patients undergoing treatment with Dr. Payam Bostani and his team with the Sagittal First Orthodontic philosophy will find their treatment times much shorter, especially during Class I and II treatment. Using the Carriere Motion 3D Appliance before placing brackets onto the teeth, Class I is performed much faster, shortening the total treatment time by as much as one year. Shorter treatment times mean better patient compliance and enthusiasm from start to finish!
What are the benefits of non-extraction orthodontics?
- Standardized and simplified treatment
- More treatment options for the patient, including clear aligner treatment
- Increased conversation rates with same-day starts
- Shorter treatment time by up to six months to a year
