AcceleDent® FAQs

How does AcceleDent work? By inserting the Mouthpiece – fitted around your existing orthodontics – and turning on the Activator for 20 minutes every day, AcceleDent can speed up tooth movement by up to 50%. Faster tooth movement may decrease the duration of your orthodontic treatment and can even help to make your orthodontics more comfortable.

Is AcceleDent safe? Yes. AcceleDent with SoftPulse Technology™ has been demonstrated safe and reliable in U.S. clinical trials. It is a Class II medical device that has been cleared for use by the FDA – the government agency that approves drugs and medical devices.

By how much time will AcceleDent reduce my treatment? Research has shown that tooth movement is accelerated by up to 50%, potentially shortening conventional orthodontic treatment time by several appointments.

How is the orthodontic treatment accelerated? Your orthodontics work on their own by moving your teeth in specific directions. AcceleDent generates small vibrations, or micropulses, enhancing the movements directed by your orthodontics, which may allow for faster overall treatment.

AcceleDent works in conjunction with most orthodontics. Please ask Dr. Steven Short if AcceleDent is a good option for you.
