Accelerated Orthodontics: AcceleDent®
AcceleDent® straightens teeth without wires or braces by mechanical stimulation (vibration) of the bone surrounding the teeth. Since the mid-1980s, vibration has been studied and used to speed up the healing of bone fractures. AcceleDent® uses vibration both to move and to heal the teeth, in as little as 20 minutes a day.
AcceleDent® Aura with SoftPulse Technology® releases a light force pulse that transmits through the roots of your teeth to the surrounding bone socket. This helps accelerate the cellular response and speeds the rate with which your teeth can move. When used in conjunction with orthodontics, AcceleDent® Aura has been shown in clinical studies to move teeth up to 50% faster.
Accelerated Orthodontics: PROPEL®
PROPEL® can reduce treatment time by 60% or more by a procedure called Alveocentesis™, through micro-perforations of the alveolar bone. PROPEL® is used in conjunction with braces or Invisalign®. PROPEL® is relatively painless for the patient and can be performed in minutes by Dr. Sutter.
