Braces and aligners are valuable tools for orthodontists. They use these and other devices to correct your misaligned smile. Some people respond very quickly while others might take a while for their bones to react to the procedure. The most common concerns are discomfort, time to achieve results, and speed of bone remodeling. While braces can do their work without fail, it is up to your body to respond by remodeling your bone appropriately. If it takes longer than necessary, the process can become uncomfortable and frustrating. However, AcceleDent® can help with this process.
What is AcceleDent®?
This device sends micro-pulses into your bone to escalate its cell activity. A patient must bite the device for it to work. The usual routine is using it for just minutes every day. You can use it together with your aligners or braces. You should not use it alone because it does not align your teeth.
When you put braces on, you suppress one side of the tooth while releasing the other. The suppressed side has to inhibit growth, while the other one has to respond by increasing cell proliferation. Some people respond faster to this device than others.
How Does It Work?
As already mentioned, its work is to accelerate bone response. Without it, the bone will respond more slowly. Apart from accelerating cell formation and tooth alignment, it also reduces discomfort associated with braces. Discomfort is common because of the competing forces in your mouth. The braces force your teeth to stay in the desired way, but the jaws do not yield without putting up a fight. AcceleDent® can reduce the discomfort marginally because it will accelerate cell growth and consequently tooth alignment.
