How Does AcceleDent Work?
The AcceleDent System uses micro-vibrations to quickly and gently remodel your jawbone. This remodeling, combined with the movement created by your other orthodontic appliances, allow your teeth to move into their aligned positions much sooner, resulting in reduced treatment time.
Vibration treatments have been used all over the body, proving to be an effective treatment for a variety issues such as helping to speed the healing of broken bones. Astronauts even use special vibration plates to prevent muscle deterioration while in space!
The AcceleDent system uses a mouthpiece that resembles a mouthguard that you will use for 20 minutes each day. Using the device is as simple as biting firmly so that you can let go with your hands, activating the device, and letting it run automatically for 20 minutes. That’s it!
Who Can Use AcceleDent Aura?
AcceleDent can be combined with any orthodontic treatment, and is completely safe for patients of any age!
Is AcceleDent Painful?
No. Patients report no more soreness with AcceleDent than orthodontic treatment alone. Most people describe it as “tingling,” which is perfectly normal.
Will My Teeth Move More Quickly If I Use AcceleDent Longer Than 20 Minutes?
Longer treatment has not been tested, and we recommend following the recommended schedule for optimum results.
How Do I Clean The AcceleDent Device?
Rinsing in lukewarm water, and periodically brushing the mouthpiece will help keep your device clean. Never put the device in a dishwasher.
How Long Does The Battery Last?
A single charge should last for 5 uses.
