Acceledent is a hands free, FDA approved, Class I medical appliance that is designed to work alongside orthodontic treatment with braces or clear aligners. The appliance is used daily for 2o minutes to deliver micropulses that increase the rate of bone metabolism. More specifically, the micropulses help to recruit the osteoblasts and osteoclasts (the cells that metabolize bone) to the alveolar bone surrounding the tooth.
Independent research has shown that teeth will move 35-50% faster than normal when Acceledent is used in conjunction with orthodontic treatment. Acceledent will effect all the teeth at once due to the design of the product. In addition to the increased rate of tooth movement, many patients Indicate that the soreness often associated with tooth movement is reduced or even completely alleviated when using Acceledent with their orthodontic treatment.
