Advantages of Invisalign® Enhanced with Arch Reformulation Therapy

1. Eliminates the need for many laser, implant and pre-implant surgeries.

2. A unique periodontal aligner protocol to treat gum, bite, bone, jaw and general sensitivity problems in a dentally gentle and cost-effective manner.

3. A non-invasive and highly effective method to help those suffering with temporomandibular joint (TMJ) dysfunction (TMD) and an excellent alternative to elective orthognathic surgery.

Why choose Arch Reformulation Therapy (“ART”) over dental braces and orthodontic aligners?

Periodontal Aligners

Traditional Braces /  
Orthodontic Aligners

  • The health of the gums is one of two criteria used to measure the success of therapy.
  • Improvement of the bite and gums post-treatment is common.
  • When there’s too little room for all the teeth, the bone is modified in a natural manner to accommodate each part of every tooth. This idealization of the bone as well as the improvement of the bite enhance the mouth’s ability to resist relapse forces and remain stable.
  • Active periodontal disease is frequently an indication to initiate periodontal aligner treatment.
  • Gum health milestones need to be achieved before progressing to the next stage of treatment.
  • Has been referred to as a cure for certain types of periodontal disease.

  • Gum health is not one of the eight criteria used to measure the overall success of treatment (source: American Board of Orthodontics).
  • After treatment, teeth often don’t remain in their positions. Results are often unstable and according to professional research by orthodontists, relapse is apparent in more than half of the patients (70-90%).
  • When there’s insufficient bone to accommodate all the teeth, healthy tooth structure is often removed and healthy teeth are commonly removed to accommodate the bone.
  • Active gum and bone disease often raises a red caution flag to avoid initiating metal braces or orthodontic aligner treatment.
  • The condition of the gums is not one of the factors which determine whether care will proceed.
  • It’s not uncommon for the gums to require treatment after orthodontic therapy is declared completed.

History and Future

Arch reformulation therapy (ART) is a unique periodontal aligner treatment recently developed by Dr. Elliot Davis in New York City. While a number of clinicians have reported that gum conditions would occasionally improve after orthodontic aligner therapy, Dr. Davis noticed that the gum health of patients would continue their marked improvement many months after the completion of their periodontal aligner protocol. Additionally, these patients didn’t exhibit any of the signs typically associated with braces relapse.

Those were more than pleasant contrasts. Researchers have confirmed that orthodontic relapse occurs frequently and that those who’ve had braces often wind up with gum and bone problems which require professional intervention. That’s why it’s so refreshing and gratifying to hear Dr. Davis’s patients express over and over that “my mouth has become stronger.”

Based on his observations and patient feedback, Dr. Davis systematically refined and enhanced this technique into the proven ART protocol (PerioCompleteTM – patent pending [USPTO]) for patients with gum, bite, bone and general sensitivity problems (the birth of the “periodontal aligner!”)

Patients now routinely opt for ART as opposed to more invasive periodontal options, such as gum graft, laser or bone surgery. Patients heretofore classified as unsuitable to receive traditional braces, clear orthodontic aligner therapy or were told surgery was their only choice, are now obtaining predictable results via this non-invasive and dentally respectful disruptive innovation.

As awareness grows that many dental problems previously believed to be untreatable (elective orthognathic care) or incurable (periodontal disease) can be remedied in an efficient and dentally gentle manner, ART will become accessible through an increasing network of highly trained and skilled dental professionals. Suffice it to say, dentistry has changed.

Neither the man pictured to the left nor the woman pictured below received or will require any (orthognathic) surgery.

Each is progressing quite well partway through their sophisticated, yet non-invasive and natural treatment
