What Is AcceleDent and How Does It Work?

You want to straighten your teeth and perfect your smile. But spending months or years in braces or clear aligners sounds like too much of a hassle. If that’s you, Dental Care of North Carolina may just have the solution. We’re pleased to offer AcceleDent, the revolutionary technology that reduces orthodontic treatment time by up to 50 percent! Just 20 minutes a day using this innovative device will have you in your ideal smile in no time!

What Is AcceleDent and How Does It work?

Orthodontics involves moving your teeth into alignment through a process known as bone remodeling. When force is applied to your teeth, bone cells called osteoblasts and osteoclasts are mobilized around the roots. The cellular response leads to changes in the bones surrounding the teeth, shifting them into the desired position. 

AcceleDent’s patented SoftPulse Technology uses tiny pulses called micropulses to increase cellular activity and speed up bone remodeling, which accelerates tooth movement. The micropulses are incredibly gentle, with almost 200 times less force than your everyday chewing!

Why Choose AcceleDent?

Not only does the revolutionary device accelerate treatment by up to 50 percent, but it also reduces pain and discomfort associated with traditional braces and clear aligner therapy by up to 71 percent. Accelerating your orthodontic treatment process can reduce oral health concerns by decreasing the risk of white spots, cavities, and gum inflammation. 

What Should You Expect?

You’ll place the device’s mouthpiece around your existing metal braces or clear aligners and wear the activator for 20 minutes per day. You’ll know that it’s on when you see a green LED light. With the hands-free action, you can catch up on emails, browse the internet, or watch your favorite TV show. Those 20 minutes will be up before you know it!

How Should You Clean Your AcceleDent Aura?

Disconnect the mouthpiece from the activator and rinse it well in lukewarm water after each use. Every once in a while, use a liquid dishwashing detergent, mild soap, or non-abrasive toothpaste to clean the mouthpiece gently. Wipe down the activator with a soft cloth as needed. Allow the device to air dry thoroughly before storing it in its travel case. Never place the mouthpiece or activator in the dishwasher to avoid irreparable damage and voiding the warranty.
