What is AcceleDent®?
AcceleDent® is a small device that may be recommended for promoting accelerated tooth movement during orthodontic treatment. Whether you are using fixed braces or clear aligners, AcceleDent® has been shown to reduce both discomfort and duration of treatment.
How does it work?
The AcceleDent® device uses SoftPulse Technology® – a form of micropulse vibrations – to gently stimulate tooth movement. These precisely calibrated pulses allow your orthodontic treatment to be completed up to 50% faster than with braces or clear aligners alone.
How do I use AcceleDent®?
Simply insert the mouthpiece and bite down, just enough to hold the device without using your hands. Turn on the activator for its full 20-minute timer. Repeat daily, as directed.
