AcceleDent is an orthodontic device that can accelerate your orthodontic treatment process by up to 50%. For many, this sounds too good to be true, and they wonder if it’s really safe.
The fact is that, yes, AcceleDent is safe. Here’s how it works.
AcceleDent is made up of two main components: a mouth piece, which is fitted over your orthodontic appliance, and the Acceledent handle.
The handle delivers precisely calibrated micropulses (low levels of vibration) to the jaw via the mouth piece, and this micropulse promotes bone remodeling.
Orthodontic tooth movement is achieved by applying forces to the teeth via wires, springs and other appliances to alter the supporting bone. Medical research has shown that by applying a low level of vibration, like that provided by AcceleDent, this process can be accelerated.
Additional research has shown that mechanisms that transmit micropulses help to prevent bone breakdown and increase bone density.
Acceledent’s efficacy is backed up by over two years of international clinical studies. It has been proven to be a safe approach to accelerated tooth movement with no evidence of increased root resorption (root shortening), and no increased loosening of the back teeth.
When managed by a qualified orthodontic professional, AcceleDent is a safe and effective method for accelerating the orthodontic treatment process.
