AcceleDent is a treatment that is currently offered in our office to accelerate treatment times for orthodontics. Instead of wearing traditional braces for up to two years, Acceledent may reduce the length of treatment for adults, teens and children to less than one year with faster orthodontics to help you adjust and straighten your teeth in no time. AcceleDent is approved by the FDA and has been used by thousands of patients worldwide. You can now speed up your tooth movement by up to 30% using this pain-free, easy appliance. Combined with existing orthodontic appliances like Invisalign, patients can use Acceledent to potentially reduce their treatment time. It can also be used with traditional braces.
HOW IT WORKS
AcceleDent works by inserting a special mouthpiece with the pulse activator for 20 minutes a day. It uses gentle micropulses, called SoftPulse Technology® allowing movement of your teeth. Fitted around your existing braces AcceleDent can speed up tooth movement decreasing the duration of your orthodontic treatment. This patented technology will very gently vibrate through your teeth and gums to accelerate tooth movement guided by your existing orthodontic appliance and treatments. In order for the Acceledent procedure to be effective, patients are required to commit to at least 20 minutes a day.
AcceleDent is easy to use. Simply press the removable mouthpiece into the activator, bite down firmly enough to hold the device in place and turn it on. Relax while you watch TV, read a book or listen to music during the required 20 minutes of use for AcceleDent to function effectively.
Numerous studies have demonstrated AcceleDent’s benefits in safely speeding bone tooth movement. When used as directed in conjunction with orthodontic treatment, it offers benefits including: Faster tooth movement without sacrificing aesthetics Can be used by both teen and adult patients May reduce your orthodontic treatment time by 30% It is lightweight and comfortable. Hands-free design allows you the freedom to read, watch TV or complete work.
An ideal AcceleDent patient is someone who is interested in quickly obtaining the aesthetic, functional and health-related benefits of orthodontic care. If you are undergoing or preparing to undergo orthodontic treatment and are seeking a shorter treatment time span, AcceleDent may be right for you.
