controlled-arch-orthodonticsControlledArch® Treatment System offers Orthodontic solutions for patients of all ages and all aspirations. From purely cosmetic outcomes to comprehensive Orthodontics, ControlledArch has it covered. ControlledArch Treatment options are designed to work with and not against nature, by simply assisting or reminding the body of the natural genetic intention of your facial development. It is understood that as we go through childhood and become adults, we can often be confronted with environmental and behavioural circumstances that can conspire against the natural and intended growth and development of our face.

Traditional Orthodontics can sometimes require unnecessarily, invasive procedures for adolescents and young adults designed to simply deliver the patient with straight teeth. This is often done with little or no regard for the impact this methodology can and does have on the overall appearance of the face. The underlying philosophy of the Controlled Arch technique is to not just deliver straight teeth but also balance faces and beautiful smiles. Full mouth braces are still regarded as the benchmark when it comes to achieveing straight teeth and the perfect bite. For most, the major downside of this therapy is and has always been the time it often takes to achieve the desired outcome. The treatment time for this process can often tend to be a bit open ended given the unpredicable nature of tooth movement.

What is the difference between traditional Orthodontics (Braces) and The ControlledArch System?

To all intents and purposes from the outside, the Controlled Arch system looks exactly like traditional braces, however, it is what you can’t see behind the teeth that makes all the difference and makes this system so effective and unique. The ContolledArch Treatment System not only offers faster treatment times, but the real difference is the absolute predictability of tooth movement.

How long will my ControlledArch Treatment take?

There are a number of specific factors that will ultimately determine both treatment times and methods and these will be determined by your Certified provider. However you can expect to be in braces for at least 30% less time with this technique than traditional methods.

    What kind of results are your patients getting with controlled arch appliance? My dentist here in Canada is offering it…. but I’m trying to find some info on long term results people are getting. Controlled Arch sounds much better than orthognathic jaw surgery lol… so if i can get the same results with Controlled arch…. win win. Thanks for any info you wish to provide.

      We have incredible results. I am able to grow 6 to 8 mm without any problem. I working on one to grow 24mm, so far we have grown him 12mm. This saved him from orthognathic surgery for sure.
