Reduce Your Treatment Time with AcceleDent® Aura
“Is there any way to make my treatment go faster?” This is a question we hear quite often at our practice. Braces are an excellent way to achieve the smile you desire, but two years in treatment can seem daunting. For patients seeking the fast track to a dazzling smile, AcceleDent Aura may be an option. This revolutionary, FDA-approved, doctor-prescribed technology can reduce your treatment time by up to 50 percent, and it is available at Smile Orthodontics.
How Does AcceleDent Aura Work?
AcceleDent is a device that is placed over braces or aligners for approximately 20 minutes every day. The success of AcceleDent is primarily due to its innovative SoftPulse Technology™. By applying gentle micropulses to the teeth, movement can be facilitated, and the bone remodeling process can be accelerated. The pressure applied by the device is less than an electric toothbrush, but incredibly effective when used routinely. In addition to accelerating your treatment, AcceleDent can also make orthodontic treatment more comfortable.
How Do I Use AcceleDent?
AcceleDent has a simple design and is easy to use. The device consists of a mouthpiece that is attached to an activator. The activator contains the battery, and an LED light to let you know when the device is on. To use AcceleDent, simply insert the mouthpiece, and place it over your braces or aligners. Bite down with light, steady pressure, and turn the device on. You will feel slight, gentle vibrations for 20 minutes. The device will turn off automatically when the session is complete. AcceleDent is a hands-free device. While it is working, you can watch television, check your email, or read a book. Use AcceleDent only once per day. Multiple sessions or sessions lasting longer than 20 minutes will not enhance your results.
Caring for Your AcceleDent
Little maintenance is required for AcceleDent Aura. When you are finished with your session, simply disconnect the mouthpiece from the activator, and rinse it off under lukewarm water. If necessary, mild soap or detergent can be used to clean it, as well. The activator can be wiped down with a clean, soft cloth. Be sure to place your device on the charger when you are finished.
Weigh Your Options
While it is certainly tempting to accelerate your orthodontic treatment time, keep in mind that results vary. Most people enjoy excellent outcomes with AcceleDent Aura. On average, patients experience a faster treatment time by 38 to 50 percent. However, this treatment is not for everyone. Because each patient has a unique set of needs, there may be some cases where AcceleDent is not recommended. Our top priority is patient safety. While this device has been approved by the FDA, it is up to the doctor to determine if AcceleDent is appropriate for you.
Additionally, AcceleDent will increase the cost of your treatment plan. It is important to fully evaluate your own goals and desires to determine if this option is worth it for you.
