We are SO excited to let you all know that our team has decided to partner up and work with The Crossing in Kokomo! We will be doing many different collection drives throughout the year and volunteering our time to give back to this great program! For the month of March, we are doing a "PAPER GOODS COLLECTION DRIVE". So bring in your donations of toilet paper, plastic cups, paper towels, paper plates, etc..... We do know they are in need of 55 gallon trash bags! Help us spread the word!!! Drop off your donations at our office 314 E. Alto Rd.
We donated items to Lafayette Park IB Elementary's 3rd annual family bingo night! They had over 350 people in attendance for bingo, snacks, face painting and family time! Thank you to Mia & Ava for asking us to be a part of this great event!
Two new treatment
modalities, in use at Jarrell Orthodontics, are now offering orthodontic
patients who want to accelerate their treatment with options to do so. While
Propel and AcceleDent both rely on the stimulation of the bone remodeling to
speed up treatment time, one is a procedure performed in the orthodontic office
while the other is relies on patient cooperation.
micro-osteoperforations are used to stimulate the bone to remodel faster thereby
accelerating treatment. Propel
“Fast Tracks” orthodontic treatment by enhancing the naturally occurring
biological effects of orthodontic treatment; stimulating the bone remodeling
process thereby accelerating the rate of tooth movement and increasing treatment
Movements that were
once challenging can now be completed to a more ideal finish, in a safer and
truly more efficient manner.
treatment is simple taking a few minutes chair side and is typically performed
at the beginning or middle of orthodontic treatment at a regular patient
patients require just 1 – 2 PROPEL treatments.
Complexity and duration of the movements determine the number of
Propel is can be used
with any orthodontic treatment that we provide, fixed appliances or aligner
treatments. Described by patients as “very easy, painless, and super quick”,
this exciting new treatment is helping us effect tooth movement and space
closure in once challenging situations at a much faster pace than ever before.
While Propel is a
treatment administered while the orthodontic patient is in the chair,
AcceleDent, used by the patient at a time and place of their choosing, is a
first-of-its-kind medical device that works along with conventional orthodontic
treatment to accelerate tooth movement. It is a hands-free device, used daily
for a recommended 20 minutes, during which patients can simultaneously carry
out routine tasks, such as watching TV, reading or texting. Its exclusive SoftPulse
Technology™ generates precisely calibrated micropulses to accelerate remodeling
activity during orthodontic treatment. AcceleDent Aura has been reported to
make the orthodontic treatment not only faster, but also more comfortable. It’s
designed to be fast, safe and gentle.
The use of AcceleDent
is allowing our Invisalign patients to cut their treatment times by at least
50% while those in traditional braces are seeing a 30% to 50% decrease in
Jarrell Orthodontics, our goal is to create healthy, beautiful smiles for our
patients. Propel and AcceleDent enable
us to achieve our goals more efficiently than ever before.
The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that children should have an orthodontic evaluation by age 7, or earlier if necessary! Early Evaluation gives us the opportunity to intervene before a small problem becomes a big one. Dr. Jarrell can monitor your child's growth and development and begin treatment when necessary!

have had your child’s orthodontic consultation (at age 7), the orthodontist has
studied your child’s diagnostic records and has recommended “two-phase”
treatment. If you have never heard of two-phase
treatment, your initial reaction might be that he is suggesting that your child
go through braces twice. This is, in
fact, not the case. The purpose of this
Fact Sheet is to explain Two-Phase Treatment and why it may be the best
approach to treat your child’s orthodontic condition.
During Phase One treatment, an orthodontist is primarily concerned with creating
enough space for the permanent teeth as well as establishing the proper relationship
between the child’s teeth and jaws so that they work correctly.
Our goal with Phase One is to:
·regain lost space and correct crowding,
·improve the front-to-back relationship of the upper
and lower jaws,
·correct the side-to-side relationship of both jaws,
·prevent future extraction of permanent teeth,
·improve esthetics by widening arches and eliminating
the dark spaces that so often appear at the corners of the mouth,
·provide good airway flow which eliminates mouth
breathing that can negatively impact growth.
thing is certain, a child who has crowding at age seven, eight, or nine years
of age will have crowding at age twelve, thirteen, or forty-two. Lack of space for permanent teeth does not
improve on its own. Once the issues with
the alignment and growth of the jaw are corrected and the remaining teeth are
in the appropriate positions, “Phase One” treatment is complete.
Our goal with Phase Two is to:
·move the permanent teeth into their proper or final
·finish the tooth/jaw alignment begun during Phase One
Most, but not all, patients who go through Phase One
treatment will need Phase Two treatment.
