We hear a lot of questions about the remarkable new AcceleDent Aura technology. If you have any questions about your orthodontic treatment, or if you’re curious how AcceleDent Aura can help speed up your orthodontic experience, contact our office!
By inserting the mouthpiece around your existing orthodontic appliance and wearing the activator for 20 minutes every day, AcceleDent Aura can speed up tooth movement through the use of SoftPulse Technology’. Faster tooth movement may decrease the duration of your orthodontic treatment and can help make your orthodontic experience more comfortable.
Research has shown that tooth movement is accelerated by 106% during the initial phase of treatment and up to 50% during the subsequent phase of treatment, potentially shortening conventional orthodontic treatment time.
AcceleDent Aura with SoftPulse Technology has been proven safe through US clinical trials and is cleared by the FDA as a Class II medical device.
Bite pressure on the mouthpiece should be just firm enough to hold your AcceleDent Aura in place without using your hands. Avoid biting forcibly into the mouthpiece, as that may cause excessive wear.
AcceleDent Aura is an FDA cleared, single-use prescription device. Sharing the AcceleDent Aura and/or the mouthpiece is prohibited. Based upon your unique orthodontic treatment plan, your orthodontist prescribed AcceleDent Aura for your use only. Use of AcceleDent Aura without the supervision and direction of an orthodontist may result in adverse, unintended consequences.
Part of the way your orthodontic treatment works is by changing or remodeling the bones surrounding your teeth. As this remodeling process is accelerated, your teeth move more quickly. That’s where AcceleDent Aura comes in! By using tiny vibrations, or micropulses, SoftPulse Technology speeds up bone remodeling and tooth movement.
