Faster Invisalign Treatment with AcceleDent ®
AcceleDent makes it possible to get faster Invisalign treatment in up to half the time it would usually take! This proven technology that speeds up Invisalign treatment was once considered a fantasy, but after many years of research, it is now possible to potentially cut your treatment time in half. This amazing technology is now available at Enhance Dental.
How does AcceleDent work?
Acceledent uses very gentle vibrations, up to 8 times softer that an electric toothbrush via a comfortable and safe mouthpiece. The device is used hands-free and is only required for 20 minutes per day whilst wearing your Invisalign clear aligners. The Acceledent uses only 20 grams of force at 30 Hz to produce tiny vibrations or micro-pulses. These micro-pulses are gently transmitted through the mouthpiece to both the upper and lower jaw. These fine vibrations speed up the movement of teeth by helping to increase bone cell activity (osteoclasts and osteoblasts). This allows faster bone remodelling, accelerating tooth movement.
How does AcceleDent speed up Invisalign Treatment up to half the time?
During Invisalign treatment, you would usually change your Invisalign aligners (also known as clear braces) every 2 weeks and they are worn day and night for 22 hours per day. AcceleDent allows you to change to a new set of aligners every 7 to 9 days instead of every 2 weeks. This means if your Invisalign treatment is scheduled for 12 months, AcceleDent could speed up your Invisalign treatment from only 6 to 8 months. Otherwise, if your Invisalign treatment is scheduled for 18 months it could take as little as 9 to 12 months to complete your Invisalign treatment.
Is AcceleDent Safe, Effective and Gentle?
Yes! The AcceleDent system is certainly considered safe and it is also TGA approved by the Australian Therapeutic Goods Administration since 2009. Many researchers have studied orthodontic vibration technology and found it to be very effective and gentle. In fact, the gentle vibrations can also make orthodontic treatment such as Invisalign more comfortable. The inventor of the AcceleDent device is Dr Jeremy Mao who has also been involved in stem cell research. The makers of AcceleDent is OrthoAccel technologies, a leading provider of accelerated orthodontics exhibited their high-tech device in Sydney Australia at the seventh international orthodontic conference (IOC).
Why speed up Invisalign treatment with AcceleDent?
Dr Joseph Paino explains, often my patients want their teeth looking as good as they can be for a Wedding or important event. The only problem may be the time to do their Invisalign treatment is longer than that very special occasion. Speeding up results without having to compromise the degree of orthodontic treatment required with Invisalign is now a reality. Another reason may be to complete treatment prior to travelling overseas. Whatever your reason, ask Enhance Dental if speeding up Invisalign treatment is right for you.
