Does AcceleDent Really Work?March 21, 2016
Everyone who wears braces wants to be out of them as fast as possible. The same generally holds true for Invisalign®, which although virtually invisible, still requires wearing aligners that people want to be out of as soon as possible. AcceleDent® is an innovative intraoral device that can speed up tooth movement by as much as 50%. At NYC Smile Design, we have seen first-hand that orthodontic treatment can be hastened by using this device.
Move your teeth up to 50% faster: Orthodontia works in large part because of a process called “bone remodeling.” Essentially, the pressure from the orthodontic device pushes a tooth into a certain position, and, over time, the bone fills in the empty space previously occupied by the tooth so that the position is held. AcceleDent® emits micropulses, or tiny vibrations, which accelerates the bone remodeling process.
How to ensure AcceleDent’s effectiveness: AcceleDent® works properly only when used correctly. The device must be worn for 20 minutes every day until our dentists inform you that the treatment is completed. The great thing about AcceleDent® is that the short daily session means you can wear it when it’s most convenient, such as in the comfort of your own home after work.
