The AcceleDent® System is a groundbreaking technology in orthodontic care which when properly used can help accelerate tooth movement by 106% during the initial alignment stage and by 50% during the closure of extraction spaces. Overall, the system has the capability of shorting conventional orthodontic treatment by 5 months. While the technology to stimulate bone remodeling and healing has been around for a long time, it has recently been applied to Orthodontics.
An AcceleDent® device generates gentle pulsatile forces that transmit through the roots of teeth and their surrounding bone socket which helps accelerate the cellular response. These micropulses are precision calibrated to accelerate both tooth movement and overall treatment time. With only 20 minutes of use per day, patients experience significantly shorter treatment times and also reduced discomfort. The system works similarly to a Tens machine (Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation), which has been clinically prescribed for many years to aid in pain reduction and management.
