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. Nehi Ogbevoen may recommend AcceleDent® in Alhambra, California.
AcceleDent is a handsfree device that uses SoftPulse Technology® to move the teeth up to 50% faster. SoftPulse Technology accomplishes this by using micropulses to speed up bone remodeling, which in turn accelerates the movement of the teeth.
When you visit our office, our orthodontist will determine if AcceleDent is right for your orthodontic needs. AcceleDent can be used with fixed braces or clear aligners. AcceleDent should be used 20 continuous minutes daily. The mouthpiece is worn over the existing orthodontics and the device is turned on to activate the micropulses.
AcceleDent micropulses can not only quicken 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.
We welcome you to contact our office to learn more about AcceleDent and to schedule a consultation.
