One of the biggest complaints when it comes to braces is the amount of time that you have to wear them for in order for them to fully straighten your teeth. Well with the invention of AcceleDent, treatment time can be cut in almost half. Let’s take a look at what AcceleDent is and how it works for orthodontic specialists of Florida.
What is AcceleDent?
AcceleDent is a Class II FDA cleared device that uses soft pulse technology and cyclic forces to accelerate the movement of teeth by up to 50%. It’s an adjunctive therapy that’s combined with your regular orthodontic treatment. When used 20 minutes per day, it promotes faster tooth movement and decreases the discomfort associated with the orthodontic treatment process.
How Does It Work?
The portable, removable, hands-free accessory gently vibrates using patented SoftPulse technology, which exerts even less force than an electric toothbrush and over 200 times less force than regular chewing. The micro-pulses speed up tooth movement and increase the rate of bone remodeling compared to constant, static pressure.
Will It Work for Me?
AcceleDent works for a variety of cases and with nearly every orthodontic appliance. It’s safe for patients of all ages but is only available via prescription, so your dentist will have to decide if it’s right for you before using it.
