Ultrasound and vibrations have been used for many years to speed and enhance healing of bone fractures in orthopedics, and today this same theory has been applied to orthodontics. With the use of a new device called AcceleDent® that is now available at Gellerman Orthodontics, treatment time can be reduced by much as 50%.
AcceleDent® speeds up the process of moving the teeth though precisely calculated gentle micro-pulses that accelerate bone remodeling using a mouthpiece that is worn for only 20 minutes a day. In clinical studies, the use of this FDA approved system helped patient’s teeth move up to 50% faster.
For adults who don’t want to wear braces any longer than necessary, or teens who are sensitive about their appearance, the use of AcceleDent® is a great addition to orthodontic treatment. The pulses are gentle - less powerful than an electric toothbrush – and it is only worn for 20 minutes a day, making it easy and convenient.
The system consists of a mouthpiece and an activator. The patient keeps the mouthpiece in their mouth for 20 minutes daily during treatment. The activator delivers a low-frequency vibration through the mouthpiece into the patient’s teeth. These low-frequency oscillations create increased cellular signaling and activity within the cells of the jaw, stimulating the teeth to move faster.
