We are excited to be one of the first practices in Wisconsin to offer our patients this revolutionary new treatment which speeds orthodontic treatment.
The AcceleDent™ System is a new technology designed to decrease the time you are in braces or invisalign by increasing the rate of tooth movement. The system has been successfully used to treat people in Europe and Australia over the past few years. Results from a Randomized Controlled Clinical Trial, conducted at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio, demonstrate that tooth movement could be increased by 38-50%.
The AcceleDent™ System is light, comfortable, hands-free and can be used 20 minutes per day while engaged in variety of daily activities including reading, watching television, listening to music and doing school work.
- Accelerated tooth movement without compromised aesthetics
- Compatible with braces or Invisalign for both adults and adolescents
- Lightweight for comfort and use during daily activities
- Hands-free design allows you to go about your daily activities during the 20 minute treatment.
How does AcceleDent work?
The appliance, used daily for 20 minutes, applies patented technology to gently vibrate the teeth and surrounding bone. The microvibrations increase the rate of bone remodeling and allows the teeth to move 38-50% faster.
Why are microvibrations so important?
The rate of tooth movement greatly depends on the speed at which the bone surrounding the teeth changes. Studies have shown that orthodontic force coupled with micovibrations, generated by the AcceleDent System, safely accelerate tooth movement.
Is AcceleDent Safe?
AcceleDent has a good safety profile, as indicated by university studies in humans. AcceleDent is considered safe and under normal conditions of use with a conventional fixed orthodontic appliance.
If it accelerates tooth movement, will it cause more discomfort?
No. AcceleDent is well tolerated and does not increase the level of discomfort associated with orthodontic treatment.
In our continuous effort to provide the best orthodontic care for our patients, we are excited to offer Propel technology in our practice. Propel stimulates bone remodeling, which allows the teeth to move faster and more predictably into their ideal position.
Propel works with the patient’s own biology by stimulating the bone surrounding the teeth. Patients will finish their treatment with exceptional results in less time and with fewer treatment visits.
What is Propel Orthodontics?
Propel Orthodontics provides innovative devices and procedures to shift teeth as quickly and painlessly as possible. The Propel System can be used in combination with current orthodontic treatments, including Invisalign and traditional braces, to help move teeth into their desired position 50% faster than teeth can move with Invisalign and traditional braces alone.
The Propel system will help your teeth shift and tissues heal faster than they ever could with orthodontic treatment alone. Propel Orthodontics can also produce faster results in patients whose bone growth is still active, such as in teens and young adults.
