How Teeth Move
Teeth move through a process called bone remodeling. When force is applied to the teeth, bone cells (osteoblasts and osteoclasts) are mobilized around the root of the tooth. This cellular response causes changes in the bone surrounding the tooth, enabling orthodontics to guide tooth movement.
How AcceleDent® Works
AcceleDent’s patented SoftPulse Technology® applies precisely calibrated vibrations called micropulses that transmit through the roots of your teeth to the surrounding bone. This gentle vibration helps increase the cellular activity and speeds the rate in which your teeth can move.
When used with braces or aligners, AcceleDent is clinically shown to move teeth up to 50% faster.1
Reduced Pain and Discomfort
AcceleDent is also clinically shown to reduce the pain and discomfort associated with braces and aligners by up to 71%.1
Safe & Gentle
SoftPulse Technology micropulses exert up to 8x less force than a power toothbrush and 200x less force than ordinary chewing.1
