The AcceleDent System is designed to increase the rate of tooth movement and may reduce treatment time when used with a conventional fixed orthodontic appliance. Results from a Randomized Controlled Clinical Trial, conducted at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio, demonstrate that tooth movement could be increased during the alignment phase by 106% and during the space closure phase by 38-50%. The use of AcceleDent with other types of orthodontic appliances has not yet been studied.
The AcceleDent System is light, comfortable, hands-free and can be used 20 minutes per day while engaged in variety of daily activities. Patients have reported use while reading, watching television, listening to music and doing school work.
Accelerated tooth movement without compromised aesthetics Compatible with braces for both adults and adolescents
Lightweight for comfort and use during daily activities
Hands-free design allows you to go about your daily activities during the 20 minute treatment.
How does AcceleDent work?
The appliance, used daily for 20 minutes, applies patented technology to gently vibrate the teeth and surrounding bone. In a controlled clinical trial, the vibrations have proven to accelerate tooth movement by 38%-50%.
What is AcceleDent® Aura?
A simple-to-use, hands-free device designed for faster orthodontic treatment with only 20 minutes
- Clinically proven to move teeth up to 50% faster in a U.S. clinical trial.1
- Cleared by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and available only by prescription from your orthodontist.1
- AcceleDent patients have reported reduced discomfort with their orthodontics.
AcceleDent® Aura Components:
The heart of AcceleDent Aura, the small, lightweight Activator generates gentle micropulses to accelerate bone remodeling. It includes a USB interface, which can be plugged directly into a computer to view patient usage history via the FastTrac Report.
The Mouthpiece provides a comfortable fit and snaps easily on and off the Activator for transport and cleaning.
AcceleDent has a good safely profile, as indicated by university studies in humans. AcceleDent is considered safe and under normal conditions of use with a conventional fixed orthodontic appliance.
Propel is another option to reduce the treatment period to nearly half. Many of our patients would like to reduce their time in Invisalign® or braces and Propel is another convenient option.
We can accelerate tooth movement with a new device and technique called the PROPEL® System. It works by creating Micro-osteoperforations. Because it is only micro-invasive, it can be performed in a matter of just a few minutes in the office.
The procedure is nearly painless to the patient with virtually no recovery time. Micro-osteoperforation has been shown to move teeth more than 50% faster than traditional orthodontics alone.
We have used this procedure with Invisalign and braces. When using Invisalign we recommend that the patient to go from 2 weeks per aligner to 1 week per aligner.
