While braces help people of all ages gain straight teeth and healthy, appealing smiles, most people would rather not have to wear braces – or they would at least like to reduce the amount of time they do have to wear them.
Now there is an orthodontic treatment that can cut the time you need to wear braces by as much as 50 percent.
At Ragan Orthodontics, we offer our Dallas area patients AcceleDent, a device patients can use for about 20 minutes per day to speed up the effectiveness of braces. If you need braces, but want to reduce the time you have to wear them for them to be effective, AcceleDent could be for you.
To learn more about AcceleDent, or to schedule an appointment, contact Ragan Orthodontics today. We have locations in the Dallas area in Lakewood, Preston Hollow and Park Cities.
AcceleDent allows our patients to decrease their time wearing braces by as much as 50 percent. It is a small device that patients place between their teeth for about 20 minutes each day over the course of their orthodontic treatment with Dr. Michael Ragan.
AcceleDent speeds up the overall treatment period by stimulating bone remodeling by boosting the force that braces place on teeth. This increases the speed of tooth movement, which then decreases overall orthodontic treatment time.
Doctor Ragan and our team at Ragan Orthodontics will be happy to discuss AcceleDent with you to determine if this device can help you or your child shorten the amount of time braces must be worn.
What is AcceleDent?
AcceleDent is a small, lightweight orthodontic device that patients can use at their convenience – at home, school or work.
How Does AcceleDent Work?
It’s easy and takes and little time. To activate AcceleDent and its benefits, patients turn on the device and put it between their lower and upper teeth. Patients then gently bite down to keep AcceleDent in place. While in your mouth, AcceleDent transmits micro-vibrations. These vibrations help speed up movement of your teeth.
Studies have indicated that AcceleDent can boost desired tooth movement from 38 percent to 50 percent when the device is used 20 minutes per day. It is a great tool for patients of all ages that want to decrease the time spent wearing braces. Children and adults can benefit from AcceleDent.
Our patients at Ragan Orthodontics are pleased with the results AcceleDent provides, and they report that it’s easy to use, pain-free and comfortable.
At Ragan Orthodontics, we understand that many patients realize they can benefit from braces. But we also understand that patients want their braces off as soon as possible. That’s why AcceleDent is such a great treatment option.
Patients receive the orthodontic treatment they need to gain straight teeth and healthy, confident smiles. With AcceleDent, they can reach those goals more quickly than with regular orthodontic treatment.
