Orthodontic treatment can make a huge difference for the health and beauty of your smile. However, traditional orthodontics usually takes a few years. Luckily, there are quicker options. New techniques called “accelerated orthodontics” have the same goal as traditional orthodontic treatment, but accomplish these goals in a shorter period of time. If you would like to achieve a straight, healthy smile more quickly, Dr. Wendy Chen may recommend AcceleDent® in Colleyville, Texas.
AcceleDent is a handsfree device that uses SoftPulse Technology® to move the teeth up to 50% faster. SoftPulse Technology does this by using micropulses to speed up bone remodeling, which in turn accelerates tooth movement.
When you come to our office, our orthodontist will determine if AcceleDent is right for you. AcceleDent can be used with fixed braces or clear aligners. To use AcceleDent, insert the mouthpiece, which is fitted around existing orthodontics, turn on the device, and wear it for 20 continuous minutes every day.
AcceleDent micropulses can not only speed up your orthodontic treatment, they can make your orthodontic treatment more comfortable. SoftPulse Technology micropulses are very gentle. In fact, they exert up to 8x less force than an electric toothbrush.
