What is the AcceleDent System and what does it do?
The AcceleDent System is an orthodontic micropulse device that Drs. Pale, Gemmi, and Middleberg will prescribe for you to help your orthodontic treatment work faster. These micropulses speed up bone remodeling and tooth movement which means that you can finish your treatment faster—and you feel more comfortable during treatment!
Used daily for 20 minutes, teeth move faster in harmony with your braces through the science of micropulses.
How will the AcceleDent System help you?
- Orthodontic treatment finishes faster – plus, it may feel more comfortable
- Requires only 20 minutes a day – hands-free use so you can text, read, or surf the web
- Faster treatment time means fewer challenges to dental hygiene
How does the AcceleDent System work?
By inserting the Mouthpiece—fitted around your existing orthodontics—and turning on the Activator for 20 minutes every day, the AcceleDent System can speed up tooth movement. This can decrease the duration of the orthodontic treatment—and can even help to make your orthodontics more comfortable.
What are “micropulses” and why are they important?
Part of the way that orthodontics work is by changing—or remodeling—the bones surrounding your teeth. As this remodeling process is accelerated, your teeth move more quickly. That’s where the AcceleDent System comes in—by using tiny vibrations called micropulses to speed up bone remodeling and tooth movement.
Is the AcceleDent System safe?
Yes. The AcceleDent System has been proven safe in several clinical trials. It is a Class II medical device that’s been cleared for use by the FDA—the government agency that approves drugs and medical devices. And it is based on the same technology that’s been used by doctors for years in helping broken or damaged bones heal and regenerate.
Is the AcceleDent System comfortable?
Yes. The AcceleDent System has been demonstrated to improve the comfort of some patients in their orthodontic care.
