At Halford Orthodontics, we're always looking to implement technologies that helps our patients get the best results while keeping everything efficient. One of these technologies is called AcceleDent - a completely new way to reduce the amount of time you are in orthodontic treatment. By using the AcceleDent System for just 20 minutes a day, you’ll have a shorter treatment time to get the smile you’re after.
How does AcceleDent work?
AcceleDent works by delivering painless vibrations to the roots of your teeth and to your jaw bone by way of a small device that sits between your teeth. These vibrations accelerate bone remodeling, the process of bone tissue being broken down and new bone being created. Bone remodeling results from the pressure of braces or aligners and allows teeth to move and become stabilized in a new position. AcceleDent speeds up this process in a safe and effective way.
What are the benefits of AcceleDent?
- Shorter treatment time – Clinical studies have shown treatment time is reduced by 30-50%.
- Painless – AcceleDent gives out gentle vibrations that don’t cause any discomfort.
- Easy to use – AcceleDent is simple and easy to use and won’t inconvenience your lifestyle.
How do I know AcceleDent is for me?
AcceleDent is always used in conjunction with braces or aligners; never on its own. Simply wear the mouthpiece, which is attached to a small device that creates the vibrations, for 20 minutes a day. The device is hands-free and the high-frequency, gentle vibrations are painless. Furthermore, you can continue with everyday activities, such as reading, light housework, or working at the computer, while wearing the AcceleDent device.
