How Does AcceleDent Work?
By inserting the Mouthpiece – fitted around your existing orthodontics or with your aligner out – and turning on the Activator for 20 minutes every day, AcceleDent can speed up tooth movement by up to 50%. Faster tooth movement may decrease the duration of your orthodontic treatment – and can even help to make your orthodontics more comfortable.
The AcceleDent® System can compliment any type of orthodontic treatment, so any orthodontic patient is a prime candidate!
- Patients normally feel a tingling sensation the first few times that they use the device. The more you use AcceleDent, the more this tingling will decrease as you become familiar with the vibrations.
- You should bite down on the mouthpiece with enough gentle force to keep the device in place without holding it with your hands. Do not “chomp down” on the mouthpiece.
- Longer usage times have "not" shown to further decrease orthodontic treatment times. 20 Minutes a day is optimum.
- The AcceleDent System records your usage. When you dock the activator on the charging port, the device records your usage history. You can view your usage details on the smart display.
- Do not share your AcceleDent mouthpiece. Your AcceleDent mouthpiece has been custom fitted specifically for you.
- The AcceleDent System will stay charged for approximately 5 days of 20 minute treatments.
Numerous studies have demonstrated that microvibrations are effective in safely speeding bone remodeling. When used as directed in conjunction with orthodontic treatment, AcceleDent offers benefits including:
- Faster tooth movement without adversely affecting aesthetics
- AcceleDent is compatible with Invisalign and traditional braces
- AcceleDent can be used for adolescents, teens, and adults
- The AcceleDent appliance is lightweight and comfortable.
- Can be used while doing many other activities like reading, watching television and listening to music.
