Braces place pressure on your teeth to stretch surrounding periodontal membrane on one side of a tooth and compress it on the other, a process which loosens targeted teeth. Once a tooth is loosened with braces, bone grows around it in a process known as bone remodeling to provide support. Bone remodeling can take months or even years with braces alone, but is necessary to ensure straight teeth.
AcceleDent uses pulsating, low magnitude forces to stimulate craniofacial bone remodeling which, in turn, can help shorten the time your orthodontic treatment takes by up to 50 percent.
What is AcceleDent?
AcceleDent is a hands-free appliance that requires only 20 minutes of use every day. During your orthodontic treatment, you will simply place the device in between your teeth and gently bite down, enabling AcceleDent to painlessly and gently do its job. AcceleDent is easy to use, incredibly effective, and suitable for both teens and adults. During the course of your orthodontic treatment, Dr. Robert Rudman can help you determine if AcceleDent is right for you.
