What Is AcceleDent?

AcceleDent is a portable orthodontic appliance that utilizes gentle vibrations to accelerate tooth movement. It’s designed to be used alongside traditional braces or clear aligners like Invisalign. This FDA-approved device is prescribed by orthodontists and requires a custom mouthpiece for optimal comfort and effectiveness. AcceleDent offers a safe and non-invasive way to reduce your overall orthodontic treatment time by up to 50%.

What Is SoftPulse Technology®?

SoftPulse Technology® is the name for the core technology behind AcceleDent. It utilizes gentle micro pulses—low-level vibrations transmitted through a comfortable mouthpiece to your teeth and surrounding bone. These micro pulses are specifically calibrated to mimic the gentle pressure exerted during natural chewing.

SoftPulse Technology® is believed to stimulate cellular activity in the bone, facilitating faster bone remodeling and ultimately accelerating tooth movement.

Benefits of AcceleDent

AcceleDent offers a variety of benefits for patients undergoing orthodontic treatment:

  • Faster Treatment Time: Potentially achieve your desired smile up to 50% faster than traditional braces or Invisalign alone.
  • Safe and Painless: The gentle micro pulses are clinically proven safe and painless, exerting much less force than regular chewing.
  • Easy to Use: Simply wear the comfortable mouthpiece for just 20 minutes a day to experience the benefits.
  • Versatile: AcceleDent works with most types of braces and Invisalign, making it a widely compatible option.
  • Convenient: The lightweight and portable design allows for easy use on the go. The mouthpiece is also detachable for convenient cleaning.
  • Improved Comfort: Some patients report reduced discomfort during orthodontic treatment with AcceleDent.

Candidacy for AcceleDent

AcceleDent is a versatile device that can benefit many orthodontic patients, but it’s not a one-size-fits-all solution. Here are some factors that influence candidacy for AcceleDent:

  • Current Orthodontic Treatment: AcceleDent works effectively alongside traditional braces treatment and clear aligners like Invisalign.
  • Complexity of Case: While AcceleDent can accelerate most orthodontic cases, the complexity of your treatment plan will be considered. For example, complex cases involving significant jaw corrections might not be candidates.
  • Overall Oral Health: Healthy teeth and gums are essential for successful orthodontic treatment. If you have any underlying dental issues, your dentist or orthodontist will address them before recommending AcceleDent.
  • Patient Compliance: AcceleDent, as an adjunctive therapy, requires consistent use for optimal results. If you have difficulty adhering to a daily wear schedule, it might not be a suitable option. Use the device only as directed.

How Does AcceleDent Work?

Custom Mouthpiece

Dr. Grussmark will take impressions of your teeth to create a comfortable and secure mouthpiece while you wear braces or aligners. This ensures optimal contact between the mouthpiece and your teeth, maximizing the effectiveness of the micropulse.

SoftPulse Technology®

The core of AcceleDent lies in Soft Pulse Technology®. This technology delivers gentle micro pulses, essentially low-level vibrations, through the mouthpiece to your teeth and surrounding bone. These micro pulses are specifically calibrated to be much weaker than the forces involved in regular chewing, ensuring a safe and comfortable experience.

Mimicking Natural Forces

The key to SoftPulse Technology® lies in its ability to mimic the gentle pressure exerted during natural chewing. Orthodontic treatment works by applying controlled pressure to teeth, gradually moving them into their desired positions. SoftPulse Technology® is believed to supplement this process with similar, low-level pressure in the form of micro pulses.

Cellular Stimulation

Micro pulses stimulate cellular activity within the bone surrounding your teeth. This stimulation may play a role in accelerating the bone remodeling process. Bone remodeling is a natural process where your body continuously breaks down and rebuilds bone tissue. By stimulating cellular activity, AcceleDent may help your body remodel bone more efficiently, allowing your teeth to move through the bone more quickly and effectively.

Accelerated Tooth Movement

The ultimate goal of AcceleDent is to facilitate faster bone remodeling. By stimulating cellular activity and promoting faster bone remodeling, AcceleDent may help your teeth move into their desired positions more efficiently. This translates to potentially achieving your desired smile faster than traditional orthodontic treatment alone.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you use AcceleDent with Invisalign in?

Yes, AcceleDent is compatible with Invisalign and can be used to accelerate your treatment. Many orthodontists recommend using AcceleDent alongside Invisalign for faster tooth movement.

Can you use AcceleDent more than once a day?

No, it’s not recommended to use AcceleDent for more than the prescribed 20 minutes per day. Using it for longer periods won’t further accelerate treatment time, and may cause unnecessary wear on the device.
