50% faster Invisalign treatment with the AcceleDent system at ORA Dental Studio
The Acceledent system isa groundbreaking new orthodontic technology that complements Invisalign clear aligners by reducing treatment time by 50%, in only one 20 minute per day use.
PRLog - Jan. 23, 2013 - CHICAGO -- CHICAGO, Illinois – While orthodontic technology has been rapidly evolving, most innovation aimed at shortening treatment times have not proven effective - until now. ORA® Dental Studio - Chicago’s #1 provider of Invisalign® clear braces - is the first dental group in Chicago to start offering accelerated Invisalign® treatment with the AcceleDent™ system, a revolutionary new orthodontic appliance that speeds tooth movement and reduces Invisalign® treatment time by 50%.
"Invisalign® clear aligners represented the first major breakthrough in modern orthodontics when it was introduced in 1998. The AcceleDent™ system is the next groundbreaking orthodontic technology as it is addressing my patients' desire to dramatically shorten treatment, while maintaining the outstanding results that Invisalign provides,” says Dr. Mladen Kralj, D.M.D. founder of ORA® Dental Studio and one of the nation’s most experienced Invisalign providers.
The AcceleDent™ system is a lightweight oral appliance, similar to an athletic mouth guard, which is worn for only 20 minutes per day and uses SoftPulseTM Technology to help Invisalign® treatment work faster. It accomplishes this by generating small vibrations called ‘micropulses’ to gently accelerate tooth movement by stimulating a faster biological response of bone, as the Invisalign® aligners guide the teeth. These micropulses also makes the Invisalign® experience even more comfortable from start to finish as patients have reported significantly less tooth tenderness and discomfort.

“The average Invisalign® case I treat takes about 10 to 12 months, and with the AcceleDent™ I can now cut that patient treatment time in half to only 5 to 6 months,” says Dr. Goran Kralj, D.D.S., co-founder of ORA® Dental Studio. “In addition, the AcceleDent™ system works with Invisalign® to deliver more predictable results in complex cases by enhancing the bone remodeling process that leads to more ideal and predictable tooth movement.”
The AcceleDent™ represents the first successful clinical approach to accelerate orthodontic tooth movement in a non-invasive and non-pharmacological manner. The AcceleDent™ has been available for use in Europe since 2009, and after a series of successful clinical trials recently received FDA approval as a class II medical device for use in the United States. The AcceleDent™ system has been extensively researched and studied clinically as a complement to both conventional fixed orthodontic appliances and Invisalign® removable aligners.
“The AcceleDent™ system allows anyone to achieve quicker results, and is ideal for people who want to improve their smile in time for a special occasion such as such as a wedding, reunion, or graduation,” says Dr. Reggie Thurston, D.D.S.,partner and lead dentist at the ORA® Wicker Park location. “With the AcceleDent™ patients are more compliant in wearing their Invisalign® aligners as they are seeing significantly faster aesthetic results.”
