Orthodontic Specialists, P.A. recognizes that many orthodontic patients prefer a faster orthodontic treatment. AcceleDent® potentially reduces the time spent in braces or aligners. Teeth move through a process called bone remodeling. As force is applied to the teeth, the bone cells, called osteoblasts and osteoclasts, move around the root of the tooth. This cellular response causes changes in the bone surrounding the tooth. AcceleDent is a technology offered to accelerate the movement of your teeth. In addition to enabling accelerated orthodontics, this device improves our patients’ experience by making treatment more comfortable.
Certified by the FDA, AcceleDent is a hand-held device that patients place in their mouth. The inserted mouthpiece surrounds their orthodontic appliances and creates micro vibrations that combine with the force created by braces or aligners to help move teeth into their correct position in a faster and more comfortable manner. Simply bite down on the mouthpiece, press the start button, and let the device pulse for the recommended time (usually 20 minutes a day).
