What is AcceleDent®?
AcceleDent® is a small device that may be recommended for promoting accelerated tooth movement during orthodontic treatment. Whether you are using fixed braces or clear aligners, AcceleDent® has been shown to reduce both discomfort and duration of treatment.
How does it work?
The AcceleDent® device uses SoftPulse Technology® – a form of micropulse vibrations – to gently stimulate tooth movement. These precisely calibrated pulses allow your orthodontic treatment to be completed up to 50% faster than with braces or clear aligners alone.
How do I use AcceleDent®?
Simply insert the mouthpiece and bite down, just enough to hold the device without using your hands. Turn on the activator for its full 20 minute timer. Repeat daily, as directed.
