Traditionally, for a patient being treated with Invisalign, clear or conventional braces, 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®, a comfortable electronic mouthpiece device, 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.
ACCELEDENT-SoftPulse-TechnologyThe mouthpiece 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.
