AcceleDent

Choice Orthodontics Offers The Latest In Orthodontic Technology

If you are seeking orthodontic care to create an incredible smile, you would probably welcome any innovation that could reduce your treatment time. Dr. Windhorst and her staff are very excited to introduce the newest advancement in orthodontic treatment – AcceleDent® – an innovative device designed to increase your rate of tooth movement and decrease your overall treatment time. Dr. Windhorst is the only orthodontist in the Northwest Missouri area to offer this new technology.

Using AcceleDent®?

AcceleDent® is used in conjunction with your Invisalign trays or braces. Simply press the removable mouthpiece into the activator, bite down just firmly enough to hold the device in place, and turn on AcceleDent®. You can enjoy activities such as reading, listening to music, watching TV or playing video games while you use your AcceleDent® for 20 minutes each day.

What Is AcceleDent®?

AcceleDent® is a simple-to-use, hands-free device designed to speed up your orthodontic treatment time so that you can achieve that beautiful smile in less time! The comfortable, light-weight device stimulates microvibrations onto your teeth so that it can increase bone movement by up to 50 percent. AcceleDent® has been cleared by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and is only available through your orthodontist. Some patients who have used AcceleDent® also reported that the device reduced discomfort during their treatment.

When you receive your AcceleDent® device, it will come with the following components:

  • Activator – the heart of the device that generates gentle micropulses to accelerate bone movement.
  • Mouthpiece – comfortably snaps onto your teeth to transfer the motions of the device.
  • USB extension cable with power adapter – easily charges your device when it is out of battery.
  • Travel case – keeps the components clean and secure.

What Are The Benefits Of Using AcceleDent®?

AcceleDent® is highly effective in safely speeding up bone movement and reducing orthodontic treatment time. When used as directed, in conjunction with current orthodontic treatment, AcceleDent® offers many benefits, including:

  • Faster tooth movement without adversely affecting aesthetics
  • Compatibility with both teen and adult patients
  • Reduce your orthodontic treatment time
  • Decrease the overall discomfort of orthodontic treatment

Patients who have tried the AcceleDent system say that the device is comfortable and easy to use. Call our office to see if AcceleDent® is right for you!
