The AcceleDent System is a new technology designed to decrease the time you are in braces or Invisalign by increasing the rate of tooth movement.
The AcceleDent System is light, comfortable, hands-free and can be used 20 minutes per day while engaged in a variety of daily activities including reading, watching television, listening to music and doing school work.
- Accelerated tooth movement without compromised aesthetics
- Compatible with braces or Invisalign for both adults and adolescents
- Lightweight for comfort and use during daily activities
- Hands-free design allows you to go about your daily activities during the 20-minute treatment
How does AcceleDent work?
The appliance, used daily for 20 minutes, applies patented technology to gently vibrate the teeth and surrounding bone. The micro vibrations increase the rate of bone remodeling and allow the teeth to move 38-50% faster.
Why are micro vibrations so important?
The rate of tooth movement greatly depends on the speed at which the bone surrounding the teeth changes. Studies have shown that orthodontic force coupled with micro vibrations, generated by the AcceleDent System, safely accelerate tooth movement.
AcceleDent is a well-tolerated system and does not increase the level of discomfort associated with orthodontic treatment.
In our continuous effort to provide the best orthodontic care for our patients, we are excited to offer Propel technology in our practice. Propel stimulates bone remodeling, allowing the teeth to move faster and more predictably into their ideal position. This innovative technology allows Dr. Wentz and his team to finish treatment more effectively and efficiently. This means less time in treatment for patients in traditional braces or those using Invisalign aligners. Propel works with the patient’s own biology by stimulating the bone surrounding the teeth. Patients will finish their treatment with exceptional results in less time and with fewer treatment visits.
With PROPEL Orthodontics, Dr. Wentz can help:
- Shift teeth faster
- Stimulate alveolar bone development
- Cut your orthodontic treatment time in half!
Propel provides innovative devices and procedures to shift teeth as quickly and painlessly as possible. The Propel System can be used in combination with current orthodontic treatments, including Invisalign and traditional braces, to help move teeth into their desired position 50% faster than teeth can move with Invisalign and traditional braces alone.
The Propel system will help your teeth shift and tissues heal faster than they ever could with orthodontic treatment alone. Propel can also help produce faster results in patients whose bone growth is still active, such as in teens and young adults.
Propel can be completed chair-side in minutes by Dr. Wentz and yields little discomfort to the patient. There is zero recovery time and the patients are able to return to their normal daily routine immediately!
