AcceleDent – Accelerate the time to perfection at Ford Orthodontics!
At Ford Orthodontics we are excited to now offer you AcceleDent, an accelerated treatment option that you use at home. This means getting the smile you want in less time!
AcceleDent is an orthodontic micropulse device that we can prescribe for you to help your orthodontic treatment work faster. Your orthodontics work on their own by moving your teeth in specific directions. What AcceleDent does is generate small vibrations – micropulses - as your teeth are guided by your orthodontics. These micropulses accelerate the changing – or remodeling – the bones surrounding your teeth to speed up tooth movement. This means that you can get your braces off faster and you will feel more comfortable during treatment. And the best part - AcceleDent is both non-invasive and non-surgical!
- AcceleDent requires only 20 minutes a day of regular hands-free use so you can text, read, watch television, or surf the web
- Faster treatment time means fewer challenges to dental hygiene.
We know that a straight smile is important to you and now we can help you achieve it in much less time! Contact at us at (847) 446-2245 and ask us how we can accelerate the time to perfection.
AcceleDent – it’s easy to use – Just ask us!
Just ask Dr. Ford how easy AcceleDent is to use! All you do is insert the Mouthpiece, which is fitted around your existing orthodontics, and turn on the Activator for 20 minutes every day. That’s all – it’s that simple!
You bite the Mouthpiece with just enough pressure to hold the AcceleDent in place without using your hands. You can then go about your daily activities like watching television, working on the computer, and reading while the AcceleDent works to accelerate your treatment.
AcceleDent also helps track your usage too! When you dock the Activator/Travel Shell on the Charging Port, your usage history and details are registered and you can observe those details on the Smart Display.
Make sure to bring your AcceleDent into Ford Orthodontics during your regular office visits so we can dock the unit to our office Charging Port to review your usage with you.
I already have my braces – can I still use AcceleDent?
Now that you are in your braces, you are probably thinking about that great smile at the end of the road? Well at Ford Orthodontics we can help you reach the end of the journey even faster! Don’t worry even if you have already been wearing them for some time, if you start regular use of AcceleDent during your treatment you may still get your braces off faster.
By using AcceleDent just 20 minutes a day, you may be able to significantly reduce the time that you are in your braces. Talk to Dr. Ford today and ask about incorporating AcceleDent as part of your treatment plan.
Ask Dr. Ford: Will AcceleDent work for me and is it safe?
AcceleDent works in conjunction with most orthodontics. Just ask Dr. Ford if AcceleDent is a good option for you.
And yes, AcceleDent is safe. It has been proven safe in several clinical trials. It is a Class II medical device that has been cleared for use by the FDA – the government agency that approves drugs and medical devices. And AcceleDent is based on the same technology that’s been used by doctors for years in helping broken or damaged bones regenerate. Remember, AcceleDent and all its component parts (Activator, Mouthpiece, Charging Port, and Travel Shell) is a prescription device intended for home-use only by a single patient and should be properly disposed of once treatment is finished.
Also, AcceleDent uses gentle micropulses and does not hurt. In fact, many patients report that their orthodontic treatment feels more comfortable when they use AcceleDent.
