Decoteau Orthodontics is proud to offer our patients this revolutionary new treatment which speeds orthodontic treatment. The AcceleDent™ System is a technology designed to decrease the time you are in braces or Invisalign by increasing the rate of tooth movement. Tooth movement could be increased by 40-50%. The AcceleDent™ System is light, comfortable, hands-free and can be used 20 minutes per day while engaged in variety of daily activities including reading, watching television, listening to music and doing school work.
How does AcceleDent work?
The appliance, used daily for 20 minutes, applies patented technology to gently vibrate the teeth and surrounding bone. The microvibrations increase the rate of bone remodeling and allows the teeth to move 38-50% faster.
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.
