AcceleDent
Put Your Teeth in the Fast Zone!
04/18/2017
Have you considered accelerated treatment? Didn't know it existed? Did you know there were ways to have your braces treatment done faster? There are options now available to "accelerate" your treatment. Acceledent is a dental device that was introduced about 5 years ago. It looks like a dental mouth guard attached to a handle that vibrates. What these vibrations do is place sonic pulses into the bone surrounding the tooth and stimulates the bone activity to occur faster. Your teeth need to move to get corrected and your bone needs to change as well. Your bone has little cells called osteoclast and osteroblast. These either add bone (-clast) or take away bone (-blast). The sonic pulses from the Acceledent make these cells work faster. Your braces treatment could be reduced up to 30% !!!
