AcceleDent is a hands-free device designed to encourage faster tooth movement. We use this treatment in addition to braces and aligners. The treatment is very simple to use and does not require an office visit. It will help you straighten your teeth at a faster pace. Apart from that, it will make your treatment more comfortable.
AcceleDent uses SoftPulse™ Technology. The idea behind it is the use of small vibrations, also called micro-pulses. These vibrations gently facilitate a faster tooth movement in your orthodontic treatment. This speeds up the remodeling process of the bones in your mouth, thus speeding up tooth movement. AcceleDent allows your teeth to move up to 40% faster than traditional orthodontic movements. AcceleDent delivers you a better experience while working with your current orthodontic treatment.
PROPEL is a revolutionary strategy that enables bone remodeling, allowing teeth to shift into their correct position faster and more regularly.

This results in faster tooth movement. As a result, the patient completes their treatment in lesser time.
