Is Acceledent safe?

It might sound too good to be true but AcceleDent is an orthodontic device that can accelerate your orthodontic treatment process by as much as 50%. If you're wondering whether it’s really safe, here's a little more about how it works.


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

The AcceleDent orthodontic device is made up of two main components: a mouth piece, which fits over your orthodontic appliance, and the AcceleDent handle.

The handle delivers precisely calibrated micropulses (low levels of vibration) to the jaw via the mouth piece. This micropulse helps to promotes bone remodeling.

Moving your teeth to the desired location is achieved by applying forces to the teeth via wires, springs and other appliances to alter the supporting bone. Medical research has shown that by also applying a low level of vibration, like that provided by AcceleDent, this process can be accelerated.

Further research into the effectiveness of micropulses has shown that mechanisms that transmit micropulses help to prevent bone breakdown and actually increase bone density.

Over two years of international clinical studies back up AcceleDent’s efficacy. AcceleDent has been proven to be a safe approach to accelerated tooth movement with no evidence of increased root resorption (root shortening), and no increased loosening of the back teeth.

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