Orthodontic treatment can make a huge difference for the health and beauty of your smile. However, traditional orthodontics usually takes a few years. Luckily, there are quicker options. New techniques called “accelerated orthodontics” have the same goal as traditional orthodontic treatment, but accomplish these goals in a shorter period of time. Drs. Liang and Liang may recommend AcceleDent in Washington, DC, to help you complete your orthodontic treatment more quickly.
AcceleDent is a handsfree device that uses SoftPulse Technology® to move the teeth up to 50% faster. This is accomplished using micropulses to speed up bone remodeling, which in turn accelerates tooth movement.
When you come to our office, our orthodontists will determine if AcceleDent is right for your orthodontic treatment. AcceleDent can be used with fixed braces or clear aligners. To use AcceleDent, insert the AcceleDent mouthpiece, which is fitted around existing orthodontics, turn on the device, and wear the device for 20 continuous minutes every day.
AcceleDent micropulses can not only quicken your orthodontic treatment, they can make your orthodontic treatment more comfortable. SoftPulse Technology micropulses are very gentle. In fact, they exert up to 8x less force than an electric toothbrush.
