AcceleDent – Huntington, NY
Speed Up Your Orthodontic Treatment
When patients come to us for orthodontic treatment, one of the first questions they ask is, “How long will it take?” The answer varies from patient to patient, but traditionally, braces can take anywhere from 18 – 36 months to complete their task. Clear aligners may take a year or longer. Those projections can seem like forever to some individuals. We understand that, which is why we are proud to offer AcceleDent. This remarkable technology can drastically reduce treatment time without compromising treatment results.

What Is AcceleDent?
AcceleDent is an FDA-cleared device that produces gentle vibrations, called micropulses. You will use AcceleDent for about 20 minutes a day as you proceed through your orthodontic treatment. Your consistent use of it will speed up of the movement of your teeth. In fact, studies have shown that AcceleDent can reduce treatment time by up to 50%! It can also decrease any discomfort you may feel that is related to your braces or clear aligners.
How Does AcceleDent Work?
AcceleDent’s micropulses do not actually move the teeth. The teeth move through a process called bone remodeling. As the braces or aligners apply gentle pressure to the teeth, the bone breaks down and reforms around them, allowing the teeth to move little by little. AcceleDent sends its vibrations through the roots of the teeth to affect the cellular response of the surrounding bone. It thus speeds up the bone remodeling process.
You won’t have to worry about the micropulses causing you any pain or discomfort. They are up to eight times gentler than the energy produced by an electric toothbrush, and up to 200 times gentler than ordinary chewing forces.
