AcceleDent® Speeds Up Invisalign Treatment by up to 50%
Our Invisalign treatment includes the use of AcceleDent® – a comfortable electronic device that shortens the length of treatment for a patient being provided with Invisalign, conventional or clear braces.
Traditionally, tooth alignment is achieved by exerting a constant pressure on the teeth and thus stimulating bone remodeling, which is the key to changing the position of the teeth.
With AcceleDent®, this remodeling happens at a faster rate, so your teeth also align more quickly. It has also been shown to make the orthodontic experience more comfortable by decreasing tenderness during treatment.
How does AcceleDent® work?
The system uses a mouthpiece that is worn for 20 minutes every day during the orthodontic treatment. AcceleDent® delivers to the upper and lower jaws a series of evenly distributed, high-frequency micro pulses (similar to the vibrations felt when using an electric toothbrush). By stimulating the soft tissue and bone, these micro pulses increase the blood supply to the site, which in turn speeds up the remodeling of the jawbone.
It has been clinically proven that, when used as recommended, AcceleDent® can speed up Invisalign progress by up to 50%.* For example, during a full course of Invisalign treatment a patient is normally required to change aligners every two weeks, whereas with the daily use of AcceleDent® this can be decreased to a nine-day changeover. Effectively a 12-month treatment plan can be achieved in only eight months with the use of AcceleDent®.
