Is using Acceledent safe?

Although it may sound too good to be true, AcceleDent is an orthodontic device that can speed up your orthodontic treatment process by up to 50%! But is it safe?


Yes, AcceleDent is safe. Here’s how it works.

AcceleDent is made up of two main components:  the Acceledent mouthpiece which is fitted over your orthodontic appliance, and the handle.

The handle is designed to deliver precisely calibrated micropulses (low levels of vibration) to the jaw via the mouthpiece. The micropulse is the secret to promoting bone remodeling.

By applying forces to the teeth via wires, springs and other appliances, tooth movement is achieved. Applying a low level of vibration, such as that provided by AcceleDent, this process can be accelerated.

Research has shown that mechanisms that transmit micropulses can also help to prevent bone breakdown and increase bone density.

International clinical studies over the past number of years show that Acceledent is a safe approach to accelerated tooth movement, with no increased loosening of the back teeth, and no evidence of increased root resorption (root shortening).

AcceleDent is a safe and effective method for accelerating the orthodontic treatment process when managed by a qualified orthodontic professional.
