AcceleDent is an orthodontic device that can accelerate your orthodontic treatment process by as much as 50%. To some people this sounds too good to be true. So, is AcceleDent really safe?
Yes! AcceleDent is safe. Here’s how it works.
AcceleDent is made up of two main components: a mouth piece, that's fitted over your orthodontic appliance, and the AcceleDent handle.
The AcceleDent handle delivers precisely calibrated low level vibrations called micropulses to the jaw via the mouthpiece. The micropulses promote 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, such as that provided by AcceleDent, this process can be accelerated.
Further research has shown that the mechanisms that transmit micropulses help to prevent bone breakdown and even help to increase bone density.
Acceledent’s efficacy is supported 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.
AcceleDent is a safe and effective method for accelerating the orthodontic treatment process when managed by a qualified orthodontic professional.
