Here at Jaffe Orthodontics, we know how time-consuming braces can be. And the process isn’t the most comfortable. But there is an alternative called AcceleDent that can speed up the process. Everyone’s treatment length will vary, but this FDA-approved medical device can be used in addition to aligners and braces to make the necessary bone remodeling stronger for aligning your teeth and you only need to wear it for 20 minutes a day. Here’s how AcceleDent works and how it might benefit you.
AcceleDent uses SoftPulse Technology to apply gentle and consistent pressure using micro pulses, which move the teeth into place. The bone remodeling process gets sped up due to this light force prompting teeth to move faster.
AcceleDent is a lightweight device that fits around your aligner or braces. Wearing it every day for 20 minutes can speed up your treatment process by up to 50%, but consistency is key here.
AcceleDent is unique in that it tracks your usage for you. Your orthodontist can use this data to adjust your treatment plan accordingly.
If you want to reduce your treatment time, AcceleDent might be a good option for you. Perhaps you have a wedding coming up or would like to feel more self-confident when you audition for an upcoming play.
Being responsible for using AcceleDent each day for 20 minutes is important, so if you’re highly motivated to speed up the process, AcceleDent is a good choice.
Orthodontic treatments tend to take longer for people with serious gaps and bite problems. AcceleDent can help correct those issues in a more timely fashion. However, not all complex dental issues are well suited for AcceleDent, so it is best to consult with your orthodontist.
AcceleDent can cost about $800-$900, which might not be feasible for every budget. However, if you have the extra funds, getting AcceleDent could be well worth the cost. There might be some other options you can pursue if you consult your orthodontist about speeding up treatment time.
