Acceledent-New device can accelerate orthodontic treament.
Scientific studies show AcceleDent can straighten teeth by up to twice as FAST!
By: Dr.George Bardawil
Dramatically faster treatment times.
AcceleDent is a brand new orthodontic device that effectively and safely shortens treatment time, which means you end up spending less time in braces or aligners. AcceleDent painlessly speeds up the process of bone remodeling so that the braces do their job in a shorter amount of time. Clinical studies have shown that treatment time is reduced by 30–50%.* This means that if your treatment time was originally estimated to be 18 months, with AcceleDent, you could be out of braces in as little as 9 months.
Slight vibrations are the trick.
AcceleDent works by delivering painless vibrations to the roots of your teeth and to the jaw bone. These vibrations accelerate bone remodeling, the process of bone tissue being broken down and new bone being created. Bone remodeling results from the pressure of braces or aligners. It allows teeth to move and then become stabilised in a new position. AcceleDent simply speeds up this process in a safe and effective way. AcceleDent is always used in conjunction with braces or aligners, and is never used on its own.
The patient simply wears a mouthpiece attached to a small device that creates the vibrations for 20 minutes a day. The device is hands-free and the high-frequency, gentle vibrations are painless. The patient can conduct routine activities during treatment, such as reading, light housework, or working on the computer.
Any patient in orthodontic care can benefit from using AcceleDent, whether you’re using Invisalign aligners or braces.
Why are microvibrations so important?
The rate of tooth movement greatly depends on the speed at which the bone surrounding the teeth changes. Studies have shown that orthodontic force coupled with micovibrations, generated by the AcceleDent System, safely accelerate tooth movement.
Is AcceleDent Safe?
AcceleDent has a good safely profile, as indicated by university studies in humans. AcceleDent is considered safe and under normal conditions of use with a conventional fixed orthodontic appliance.
If it accelerates tooth movement, will it cause more discomfort?
No. AcceleDent is well tolerated and does not increase the level of discomfort associated with orthodontic treatment.
