About AcceleDent

AcceleDent uses SoftPulse Technology® to gently accelerate the movement of your teeth—potentially cutting your orthodontic treatment time in half. How does it work? You simply place the mouthpiece over your teeth once a day for 20 minutes. The hands-free device applies precise vibrations (i.e., micropulses) that transmit through the roots of your teeth to the surrounding bone. The gentle vibration helps increase the cellular activity and speeds up the process of bone remodeling. Thus, your teeth can move more quickly than they would with the use of braces or aligners alone. The device is safe and gentle to use, exerting far less pressure than you would experience from a power toothbrush or ordinary chewing.
