Introducing AcceleDent, a new, cutting-edge, easy-to-use device that can significantly speed your ortho treatment duration. Studies are only now emerging regarding AcceleDent, however, our patients have shown significantly less treatment time.
What Is AcceleDent?
AcceleDent® is a hands-free orthodontic vibrating mouthpiece, clinically shown to accelerate tooth movement up to 40%. You can use it with both braces and Invisalign™ and it’s FDA approved. The device is both wireless and Bluetooth enabled; it even comes with its own app!
Twenty minutes per day is all it takes to optimize faster tooth movement. Because this device is hands-free, you can use it any time of day or night — while watching tv, listening to music, or even taking a shower!
How AcceleDent Works to Speed Ortho Treatment
So how do you speed your ortho treatment with Acceledent? Braces and alignments apply force to cause your teeth to move over time. This mobilizes bone cells at the root of the tooth, causing cellular changes in the surrounding bone. AcceleDent uses soft pulse technology, transmitting calibrations, or micropulses, to the roots of your teeth and to the surrounding bone. These vibrations increase activity on the cellular level, causing the rate at which your teeth move to speed up. The force used by the device is only 25g — eight times less than using a power toothbrush and two hundred times less than chewing! If you are interrupted while using the AcceleDent, you can pause for up to five minutes and resume without having to start over.
The app uses dashboard reports so that you can track your progress, obtain reports, show usage history, and share your results with your orthodontist. The AcceleDent app is compatible with both iPhone and Android phones and comes with free tech support and a warranty. Being able to see results helps your progress and continued use. This empowers you to become a full participant in your treatment and assist in controlling your results and speeding your ortho treatment with AcceleDent!
