AcceleDent is an innovative device that can accelerate orthodontic treatment and give you the smile you want much more quickly.

Many people who need orthodontic treatment find it a long and uncomfortable process. But with AcceleDent, it's possible to speed up your treatment time by up to 50% and reduce discomfort by up to 71%.

What Is AcceleDent?

AcceleDent is an FDA-cleared, easy-to-use appliance that provides safe and gentle micropulses to speed up tooth movement.

AcceleDent is a hands-free device that has been clinically proven to speed up orthodontic treatment by as much as 50 percent. It can be used in conjunction with braces or Invisalign aligners.

AcceleDent is a lightweight, easy-to-use appliance that fits over your teeth. You wear it for 20 minutes each day while going about your usual routine. It gently vibrates your teeth while you wear it, and the vibration promotes bone remodeling, which speeds up tooth movement when used for just 20 minutes a day,

How does AcceleDent work?

AcceleDent works by providing small micropulses to speed up tooth movement. These micropulses are called "vibrational forces" and are generated through AcceleDent's patented SoftPulse Technology®.

This patented technology produces safe and gentle vibrational forces that have been shown in clinical studies to accelerate the movement of teeth. The application of these vibrational forces has been shown to stimulate cellular activity within the bone surrounding your roots, which can help to increase blood flow and enhance bone remodeling.

This process can help lead to faster and more comfortable tooth movement throughout your treatment plan.

Is AcceleDent safe?

AcceleDent is FDA-cleared and has been proven safe in fifteen clinical trials. It's also easy to use, with no change in your routine or lifestyle. When used as directed, AcceleDent can help you complete your orthodontic treatment faster and have something to smile about sooner.

AcceleDent is a Class II medical device cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2009 for accelerating tooth movement in conjunction with orthodontic treatment. The AcceleDent System has been successfully used by tens of thousands of patients worldwide and has been the subject of several scientific studies.

The AcceleDent System was developed by OrthoAccel Technologies, Inc., a Houston-based company founded in 2007 with the goal of using cutting-edge technology to shorten orthodontic treatment time while improving outcomes.

What can AcceleDent do for me?

AcceleDent has been shown to speed up orthodontic treatment by up to 50 percent! It's also been proven to help make your orthodontic experience more comfortable.

In a clinical trial of patients using AcceleDent for just one minute per side per day, more than 70 percent of patients reported feeling less discomfort from their braces.

How is AcceleDent used?

Always use AcceleDent as directed by your orthodontist.

AcceleDent is used for 20 minutes once per day, ideally after brushing your teeth. You can use AcceleDent anytime that's convenient for you: while watching TV, doing homework, or surfing the web. While using AcceleDent, you can talk or drink water normally.

To turn AcceleDent on, press and hold the Activation Button for three seconds.

While AcceleDent is on, bite down on the mouthpiece with just enough pressure to hold it in place. The device will automatically power off when you've completed the 20-minute treatment session.

After each use, disconnect the mouthpiece from the rest of the device and rinse it with lukewarm water. Once a week, thoroughly clean the mouthpiece with soft liquid soap, non-abrasive toothpaste, or dishwashing soap to prevent bacteria buildup.
