You may have heard that AcceleDent can accelerate your orthodontic treatment process by up to 50%. That might leave you thinking that it sounds too good to be true. So, is AcceleDent safe and does it really work?
YES! AcceleDent is safe. Here’s how it works.
There are two main components to AcceleDent: a mouth piece which is fitted over your orthodontic appliance, and the Acceledent handle.
Precisely calibrated micropulses (low levels of vibration) are delivered by the handle to the jaw via the mouth piece. The micropulse promotes bone remodelling.
Tooth movement is achieved by applying forces to the teeth via wires, springs and other orthodontic 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 can actually help to prevent bone breakdown and increase bone density.
Over two years of international clinical studies backup Acceledent’s efficacy. 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.
