Advances in any field is a great thing. When it happens in Orthodontics, we get very excited. Almost 3 years ago, FDA approved this device called ACCELEDENT in Canada to be used to accelerate your orthodontic treatment. Acceledent is a hands free device used 20 mins per day while you are in orthodontic treatment to reduce your time in braces or invisalign by 30-50%.
How does it work?
It’s simple. Part of the way that orthodontics works is by changing or remodeling the bones surrounding your teeth. As this remodeling process is accelerated, your teeth will move faster. That’s where Acceledent comes in. By using tiny vibrations to speed up bone remodeling and therefore accelerating tooth movement.
Does it help with pain?
Yes it does!. Clinical research has shown that Acceledent used 20 mins per day will reduce your pain from orthodontic tooth movement drastically.
Will it work with braces or Invisalign?
Acceldent can be added to your orthodontic treatment regardless of the type of appliance used. Although in our office we see a 50% reduction in time with Invisalign and acceledent combination while a 30-40% reduction in time with braces and acceledent combination.
Adding AcceleDent Aura to your orthodontic treatment has improved the rate and efficiency in which we can help meet our patients goals. Contact our office if you would like to learn more and want to accelerate your journey to a beautiful smile.
