AcceleDent™

AcceleDent™ can Enhance Your Orthodontic Treatment!

The new AcceleDent™ System, created by OrthoAccel® Technologies, Inc., was made to compliment any sort of orthodontic treatment – whether the patient is using traditional braces, clear aligners or any other orthodontic appliance. The use of this device can potentially reduce a patient’s time in braces or aligners by as much as 50%!

How Does the new AcceleDent™ System Work?

The AcceleDent™ System creates microvibrations in a patient’s mouth in order to remodel the jawbone quicker. This remodeling, coupled with the force created by the patient’s braces/aligners/orthodontic appliances, allows teeth to move into their corrected positions faster, therefore reducing overall treatment time.

This pulsating technique has been scientifically proven to be effective on other parts of the body, such as the use of vibrations to speed up fracture healing in bones. Other medical applications of vibrations include its use by astronauts. When in space, astronauts endure a long period of weightlessness and stand on vibration plates daily in order to prevent muscle deterioration.

You can enhance your orthodontic treatment and decrease your treatment time by using the AcceleDent™ System for just 20 minutes each day! The device has a mouthpiece which looks very similar to a plastic orthodontic retainer or a sports mouthguard. You simply bite down on the mouthpiece, using gentle pressure, and start the activator. You should be biting down hard enough so that you can let go of the device with your hands and still perform other tasks. AcceleDent™ will pulse for the allotted 20 minutes, and after that, you are finished for the day! It’s that simple!

PROPEL

Instead of solely relying on braces, aligners and other orthodontic appliances to apply pressure to make teeth move, we utilize the revolutionary PROPEL system to stimulate jaw bone growth. By incorporating the patient’s own biology, we can encourage the bone around the teeth to move, which causes faster tooth movement.

Using a sterile, disposable, one-time-use PROPEL device, we will create a small, micro-pierce into the jaw bone. The device has an adjustable depth dial, so we can control how deep the surgical steel tip penetrates. It’s also ergonomically designed, so we have better control, resulting in a virtually painless procedure. This quick, 5-minute process will help speed up your orthodontic treatment, making it more efficient and effective!
