Life can be busy, which is why you may be putting off getting orthodontics to straighten your smile. After all, the process can take around 2 years, and sometimes even more. However, thanks to modern technology, there’s a way for patients to get the straight smile of their dreams faster than ever before. Keep reading to see how you may be able to cut your orthodontic treatment time in half!
But First, How Do Orthodontics Work?
Before you can understand how to speed up your treatment, it’s important to know how orthodontics work in the first place. There are various ways of straightening teeth, but they all work by applying continuous pressure over a period of time, gradually moving teeth into the desired position. As the teeth move, the bone changes with them. This is called bone remodeling, where the body breaks down bones and rebuilds them. This process can take several months to a couple of years depending on the case, but the result is a straight set of teeth.
Speeding Up the Process
Thankfully, patients no longer have to wait for this lengthy timeframe to enjoy a beautifully straight smile. With Acceledent, they can decrease their treatment time by up to 50%. Acceledent speeds up the bone remodeling process using patented SoftPulse technology, which leads to faster alignment. This technology sends micropulses into the bone that supports the teeth, increasing cellular activity in the bone structure.
How Do You Use Acceledent?
The best part of Acceledent is that it’s super easy for patients to use! This do-it-yourself treatment comes in the form of a mouthpiece that will easily fit over your braces or Invisalign clear aligners. You’ll place the mouthpiece on your smile for about 20 minutes a day, and you can do it while relaxing, resting, watching TV, or anything else that’s not active. Plus, Acceledent doesn’t cause any pain or discomfort! You can simply go about your day and let this amazing technology help deliver the smile of your dreams.
Are You a Candidate?
If it sounds like you or a loved one could benefit from Acceledent, contact your orthodontist! Because every smile is different, it’s hard to know with certainty whether Acceledent is right for you. That’s why it’s best to schedule a consultation with your orthodontist. They will carefully examine your bite, smile, and its alignment before recommending it as the right treatment for you.
