Clinical evidence shows that AcceleDent® speeds up orthodontic treatment by as much as 50 percent and relieves discomfort
HOUSTON – The first and only FDA-cleared vibratory orthodontic device, AcceleDent® is now available in more than 3,000 practice locations in North America and nearly 800 international locations. AcceleDent is an easy-to-use Class-II medical device that is clinically proven to speed up orthodontic treatment by as much as 50 percent and reduce discomfort with just 20 minutes of daily use. A prescription-only device, AcceleDent’s patented SoftPulse Technology® employs gentle vibrations that stimulate bone and tooth movement at the cellular level.
The Journal of Clinical Orthodontics reports that AcceleDent is the most common accelerated treatment technique used by orthodontists. Supported by strong clinical evidence, the technology effectively addresses patients’ two most common concerns about orthodontic treatment: length of treatment and discomfort.
As published in Seminars in Orthodontics, clinical trial evidence from a prospective, double-blind, randomized, controlled trial demonstrated that AcceleDent’s gentle, non-invasive vibration applied 20 minutes daily significantly increases the rate of tooth movement when used in conjunction with orthodontic appliances.
A second peer-reviewed study published in Angle Orthodontist showed that the micropulse vibrations used in AcceleDent significantly lower orthodontic treatment pain scores for overall pain and biting pain. In the prospective, randomized controlled trial 58 orthodontic patients were divided into an AcceleDent Group and a Control Group. Patients in both groups were directed not to take any pain medication or use topical ointments. The AcceleDent Group patients used their lightweight, pulsating device for the recommended 20 minutes per day and reported significantly less biting and overall pain throughout treatment than the patients who were in the Control Group.
These groundbreaking clinical trials show that AcceleDent delivers a safe, fast and more comfortable orthodontic treatment experience.
The company remains committed to evidence-based research on accelerated orthodontics and highlighting the practical and clinical benefits of AcceleDent. The company offers several continuing education opportunities, including complimentary quarterly webinars via OrthoAccelLearning.com, regional doctor presentations and one-on-one consultations with doctors who are interested in learning more about how their practice can benefit from the leading accelerated orthodontic treatment device.
