AcceleDent in Sylvania
Dr. Paul Hwang has good news for individuals who desire straight and even teeth but worry about spending years in braces. Acceledent is an innovative device that uses precisely calibrated micro vibrations to gently accelerate the tooth alignment process, effectively cutting down treatment time by as much as 40 percent! Used for only 20 minutes a day, the AcceleDent device is painless and can be used to complement another orthodontic treatment. Dr. Paul Hwang is pleased to offer the AcceleDent device to his Sylvania and Swanton patients for faster and superior orthodontic results.
How Does AcceleDent Work?
AcceleDent is an FDA-approved medical device that uses patented SoftPulse Technology® to send micropulses to the roots of the teeth and surrounding bone. The gentle vibrations promote cellular activity and stimulate blood flow, which in turn speeds up the rate at which the teeth move.
AcceleDent is easy to use. Place the mouthpiece in your mouth and bite down on it, making sure all sides of the mouth are in contact with the device. Next, plug the mouthpiece into the activator and turn the device on. Without holding onto it with your hands, keep the mouthpiece in place for 20 minutes. Feel free to multitask while the device is working; you can watch TV, read your emails or send a text during treatment. If you need to pause, the device can pause six times during each session for up to five minutes at a time.
Once the 20 minutes is up, turn off the device and remove it from your mouth. The mouthpiece should be cleaned after each session, using lukewarm water. Occasionally, you can use mild soap or toothpaste to gently brush the mouthpiece. Let the mouthpiece air dry or wipe it using a soft cloth before placing it into its case.
Clinical studies have found that when used with traditional braces or clear aligners, AcceleDent can speed up tooth movement by as much as 50 percent while reducing discomfort associated with braces and aligners by up to 71 percent. AcceleDent is comfortable to use. The micropulses used to trigger tooth movement exert up to eight times less force than an electric toothbrush. In some cases, AcceleDent can reduce the number of orthodontic office visits required.
Am I a Candidate for AcceleDent?
AcceleDent is safe to use on orthodontic patients of all ages and in conjunction with nearly every orthodontic treatment. The device is only available by prescription by a board certified dentist. When meeting with you, Dr. Hwang will evaluate your unique case in order to determine whether AcceleDent is a right fit for you.
