AcceleDent

Smile More – Smile Bigger –Smile Faster!

You want to improve the look of your smile, but does the thought of spending months, or even years, in braces sound like too much of hassle? With AcceleDent® , you can now speed up your tooth movement by up to 50%! Using this pain-free, easy appliance, you’ll achieve your most perfect smile in no time at all.

It’s Fast.

AcceleDent is a light, comfortable, and hands-free appliance that is used 20 minutes per day as a complement to orthodontics. The exclusive SoftPulse Technology’s™ precisely-calibrated micropulses gently accelerate the movement of your teeth as they’re guided by your orthodontics.

It’s Gentle.

With patented SoftPulse Technology, AcceleDent’s micropulses allow your teeth to move more quickly. The micropulses actually exert much less force (up to eight times less) than a power toothbrush!

It’s Safe and Reliable.

The best part of AcceleDent is that it’s safe as demonstrated in US clinical trials. AcceleDent has been prescribed to thousands of patients worldwide since its introduction in 2009. Cleared by the United States Food and Drug Administration, AcceleDent is only available by prescription from your orthodontist.

The benefits of AcceleDent will make you smile!

  • You’ll accelerate your orthodontic experience without sacrificing aesthetics.
  • AcceleDent can be used for adolescents, teens, and adults, and it is completely safe for patients of all ages.
  • The AcceleDent appliance is lightweight and comfortable. You may even forget you’re using it!
  • The hands-free design allows you to achieve a beautiful, straight smile faster than you ever thought possible — even while reading, watching television, listening to music or doing school work.

AcceleDent FAQ

We hear a lot of questions about the remarkable new AcceleDent technology. If you
have any questions about your orthodontic treatment, or if you’re curious how
AcceleDent can help speed up your orthodontic experience, contact our office!

Q: How does AcceleDent work?
A: By inserting the mouthpiece around your existing orthodontic appliance and wearing the
activator for 20 minutes every day, AcceleDent can speed up tooth movement through the use of
SoftPulse Technology™. Faster tooth movement may decrease the duration of your orthodontic
treatment and can help make your orthodontic experience more comfortable.

Q: Is AcceleDent safe?
A: Yes! AcceleDent with SoftPulse Technology has been proven safe through US clinical trials
and is cleared by the FDA as a Class II medical device.

Q: What is SoftPulse Technology and why is it important?
A: Part of the way your orthodontic treatment works is by changing or remodeling the bones
surrounding your teeth. As this remodeling process is accelerated, your teeth move more quickly.
That’s where AcceleDent comes in! By using tiny vibrations, or micropulses, SoftPulse
Technology speeds up bone remodeling and tooth movement.

Q: How much time will AcceleDent reduce my treatment?
A: Research has shown that tooth movement is accelerated by 106% during the initial phase of
treatment and up to 50% during the subsequent phase of treatment, potentially shortening
conventional orthodontic treatment time.

Q: How do I know if I am biting into the mouthpiece correctly and with the right amount of
force?
A: Bite pressure on the mouthpiece should be just firm enough to hold your AcceleDent in place
without using your hands. Avoid biting forcibly into the mouthpiece, as that may cause excessive
wear.

Q: What is the best way to clean the AcceleDent device?
A: The mouthpiece should be rinsed well with lukewarm water after each use. You may
occasionally use a soft liquid dishwashing detergent, a mild soap, or toothpaste to gently brush
the mouthpiece. The activator can be wiped with a damp cloth as necessary. The metal contacts
of the activator must be free of any dirt or residue and may be cleaned with a Q-Tip® as needed.
It is recommended that you allow your AcceleDent to air dry before being stored in the Travel
Shell. Do not place the mouthpiece or the activator in a dishwasher, as this will void the warranty
and could cause damage to the product.

Q: Can I use my AcceleDent in the shower or when sleeping?
A: No. AcceleDent is not water resistant and should not be used in the shower. It is also not
recommended to use while sleeping.

Q: Can I sanitize my AcceleDent and share it with a friend or family member who also has
braces?
A: No. AcceleDent is an FDA cleared, single-use prescription device. Sharing the AcceleDent
and/or the mouthpiece is prohibited. Based upon your unique orthodontic treatment plan, your
orthodontist prescribed AcceleDent for your use only. Use of AcceleDent without the
supervision and direction of an orthodontist may result in adverse, unintended consequences.

Q: If I use AcceleDent for more than the recommended 20 minute treatment time, does it add
incremental benefit?
A: No. Additional daily use greater than the prescribed 20 minutes duration is not recommended.

Q: Is there some way that AcceleDent can “track” my usage?
A: Yes. Docking the activator/travel shell on the charging port also allows the usage history and
details to be registered. The amount of usage can then be observed on the smart display.

Q: Can AcceleDent remind me to use it on a daily basis?
A: No. AcceleDent is not designed to provide reminders. It is recommended that you make
AcceleDent part of your daily routine in order to maximize its benefit to you.

Everyone I met always had the time to talk and make sure all of my needs were met. When I called the staff made sure I left satisfied, no matter what. I actually will miss going in for appointments!
