San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) June 24, 2016
Dr. Amanda Cheng, an orthodontist at CitiDent, is now offering micro-osteoperforation for accelerated orthodontic treatment. Dr. Cheng has extensive experience with all areas of orthodontics, including robotic Suresmile technology, Invisalign, self-ligating Damon brackets, AcceleDent, and accelerated osteogenic orthodontics.
Micro-osteoperforation is a revolutionary adjunct to orthodontic treatment. It can be used with both braces and clear aligners to cut treatment time in half. During any orthodontic treatment, outside forces apply pressure to the teeth. This causes the bone around the teeth to remodel and the teeth to move. With this new process, Dr. Cheng uses a special device to stimulate the bone during a process called alveocentesis. This increases the rate of bone remodeling.
The device is sterile and disposable for patient safety, and can be adjusted precisely for maximum effectiveness. The process involves no recovery time, and patients can immediately return to their normal daily activities. It can be applied to specific teeth or quadrants for more targeted treatments and the best possible results.
Benefits of this new option include:
- Faster treatment time
- Fewer office visits
- More predictable results
- Improved comfort
- Greater patient satisfaction
About Dr. Cheng
Dr. Cheng earned her DMD from the Harvard School of Dental Medicine before completing her orthodontics training at the University of Minnesota. She has studied under some of the top orthodontists in the world at Harvard and at the Mayo Clinic, and she is a board-certified diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontics.

Dr. Cheng will be visiting Uganda soon to provide medical and dental supplies to “Home of Hope,” an orphanage for disabled children in Uganda. Ugandan children with developmental disabilities are particularly vulnerable due to a lack of awareness and cultural misconceptions. These children are at a high risk of abuse and neglect, but Home of Hope offers them refuge and a basic threshold of care so that they can live in health and happiness.
