What Is AcceleDent?
AcceleDent is a small FDA-cleared device that can shorten the time you need to wear braces or use Invisalign. It uses soft energy pulses to accelerate tooth movement, increasing the efficiency of braces and Invisalign treatment.
The patient needs to wear AcceleDent for only 20 minutes per day. It is hands-free, so you can read, use your phone or computer, or watch TV with the device in your mouth. Orthodontic patients of all ages can use the system.
Benefits of AcceleDent
Shortens Orthodontic Treatment Time
One of the most significant benefits of AcceleDent is the reduction in treatment time. Some patients may experience a 40 to 50 percent reduction in the time needed to complete orthodontic treatment.
Reduces Discomfort Associated With Orthodontic Care
The gentle pulses help to move teeth more efficiently, meaning that braces adjustments and Invisalign tray changes cause less discomfort.

In addition to its orthodontic benefits, the AcceleDent device can also improve your oral health by reducing your chance of cavities, white spots, and gum inflammation.
