The technology behind AcceleDent® is predicated on the application of cyclic forces to move teeth faster by accelerating the bone remodeling process. Dr. Jeremy Mao conducted the first animal studies in the early 2000’s, which initially served as the foundation for scientific research in this field.
Over time, subsequent studies have been published on accelerated bone remodeling in a variety of animal models, and they have shed light on the biological response at the cellular level. AcceleDent® is the result of technology development and scientific advancement from the outcome of these early scientific studies.
