Orthodontic treatment can make a significant difference for the health and appearance of your smile. However, traditional orthodontic treatment 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. David Li may suggest AcceleDent® in San Diego, California.
AcceleDent is a 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 your orthodontic treatment. AcceleDent can be used with braces or clear aligners. To use AcceleDent, insert the AcceleDent mouthpiece, which is fitted around your existing orthodontics, turn on the device, and wear the device for 20 continuous minutes every day.
In addition to speeding up your orthodontic treatment, AcceleDent micropulses can make your orthodontic treatment more comfortable. SoftPulse Technology micropulses exert up to 8x less force than an electric toothbrush.
