Many people – whether kids, teens, or adults – will wear braces or receive orthodontic treatment at some point in their lives. The average orthodontic treatment time is between 18 and 30 months. However, using AcceleDent™ for only 20 minutes per day can reduce your total treatment time by up to 50 percent. This means you can spend less time wearing braces and more time enjoying a beautiful smile. AcceleDent™ uses gentle vibrations in order to speed up the shifting of your teeth. This accelerate shifting is what allows you to finish your orthodontic treatment sooner.
How AcceleDent™ Works
Braces and orthodontic treatment works by changing or remodeling the bones surrounding the teeth. When this process is accelerated, the teeth are able to move more quickly. AccleDent™ uses tiny vibrations called micropulses to speed up the remodeling of the bones. Powered by SoftPulse Technology®, AcceleDent™ is extremely gentle and exerts up to eight times less force than a power toothbrush. This makes treatment not only gentle, but also comfortable.
Why Should I Use AcceleDent™?
AcceleDent™ is extremely effective for reducing orthodontic treatment time. It is recommended by both orthodontists and the patients who have used it. Orthodontists have noticed that their patients have had significantly reduced treatment times. Not only have patients had shorter treatment times, but they have also experienced less discomfort throughout treatment.
Is AcceleDent™ Safe To Use?
AcceleDent™ is a very safe procedure. There have been clinical trials done to prove its safety and effectiveness. However, AcceleDent™ should not be shared with another person. Anyone who wants to use this device should receive a prescription from his or her orthodontist. Only an orthodontist can decide whether AcceleDent™ is right for you. Additionally, AcceleDent™ should be not be used while you are sleeping.
It is very simple to clean AcceleDent™. It is recommended that you rinse AcceleDent™ out with water each time that you use. You can also use mild soap, dishwasher detergent, or toothpaste to clean AcceleDent™. You can also clean the activator using a soft cloth.
