New Technology Reduces Time Spent in Braces
One of the biggest objections people have to braces is the length of treatment time, which is typically 2 to 3 years. So when a new technology comes along to accelerate treatment time, even the most reluctant patient takes notice. Such a technology is AcceleDent®. It's a special device that uses micropulses to speed up bone remodeling and tooth movement.
Orthodontics has Relied on the Delivery of Static Forces to Induce Tooth Movement for Over a Century
Part of the way orthodontics works is by remodeling the bones that surround your teeth. As this remodeling process becomes dynamic and accelerates, teeth move more quickly. That's where AcceleDent® comes in. It works in concert with braces and uses tiny vibrations, or micropulses to speed up bone remodeling, thus accelerating the movement of teeth. The patient uses AcceleDent® with SoftPulse Technology™ for just 20 minutes a day. Typically, this cuts total treatment time in half. This device works with all types of braces including Invisalign®.
Micropulse forces generate multiple stimuli to bone cells to achieve bone remodeling. AcceleDent® technology speeds orthodontic tooth movement using a smart, automated, easy-to-use hand-held device. It reduces orthodontic labor and allows Dr. Bader to fine-tune his treatment plans. He monitors the outcome of tooth movement at each visit. And his braces treatments become seasonal events instead of multi-year events.
