AcceleDent is a terrific option that’s available for speeding treatment with Invisalign clear plastic aligners and with braces. When using AcceleDent, the goal is to make the process of straightening your teeth go faster, with an easy-to-use treatment that’s also a painless one. It utilizes the latest in technology to simply speed up your straightening. But who receives the most benefit from using it? Let’s start with a look at what AcceleDent actually is, and how it works.

What is AcceleDent?

AcceleDent is a device that’s FDA approved for shortening the period of time that you need orthodontic treatment with either Invisalign clear aligners or with fixed braces. Just how much can AcceleDent shorten your treatment period? While speed of acceleration depends on the patient, the device may reduce treatment time significantly – in many cases up to half. 

AcceleDent consists of a mouthpiece and a battery that’s rechargeable. It works by speeding up the rate at which your teeth move during your orthodontic treatment. It’s safe as well as effective for every day use, and along with being pain-free, it is simple to take care of, too. 

How Does AcceleDent Work?

AcceleDent works simply by fitting around your orthodontic treatment appliance. Over the course of your orthodontic treatment, whether braces or Invisalign aligners that work to straighten teeth gradually over time, the device will assist with the movement of your teeth. If you’re wearing Invisalign and replacing one aligner tray with another every week or two as your teeth move to fit the aligners or fixed braces, the small device uses its vibrating technology to make the straightening process go faster. This vibrational technology is called SoftPlus, and studies have shown that it can indeed increase the movement of teeth as much as 50%.

To use the device, you simply place the Acceledent mouthpiece around the aligners or braces that you’re wearing, after you brush and floss your teeth. When you turn it on, micropulses are activated. These micropulses cause the vibrations that create teeth movement. You’ll simply use the device no more than 20 minutes each day, biting on it gently without pressure to increase tooth movement. It’s that easy. 

An app will help you to monitor your teeth straightening progress using the device.

Are You a Good Candidate for AcceleDent?

All in all, patients of any age receiving orthodontic treatment can receive a lot of benefit from using AcceleDent. Adults in particular may be anxious to finish up their orthodontic treatments as soon as they can, and using the device will help.

But, regardless of your age, if you want to reduce the amount of time you need to wear your orthodontic device, AcceleDent may be a great choice for you.
