Many people need to get braces at some point in their lives. While the end results are fantastic, one of the biggest drawbacks is the length of time it takes for the treatment to work. Some people need to wear braces for a year and a half in order to get their final results. It would be great if there was a way to reduce the time spent wearing braces, and fortunately, a solution seems to be possible with Acceledent.
What Is It?
The first thing you are likely wondering is what this device actually is. Basically, it is meant to serve as a complement for your orthodontic treatment. You put the item around your braces, and leave it in there for 20 minutes. The device uses SoftPulse Technology™ to create tiny vibrations. By increasing tooth movement, it can decrease the amount of time you need to wear your orthodontics.The idea behind it is that orthodontic devices naturally move teeth into the desired positions. Depending on the extent of the malocclusions, it usually takes anywhere between six and 18 months to finish. Since Acceledent is enhancing these movements, it should allow for a patient’s teeth to finish their transition much sooner.
Does It Really Work?
As of now, more data needs to be compiled in order to reach more conclusive results. It is a worthwhile device that is worth pursuing further because in theory, its goals are grounded in science. This device has also been cleared by the Food and Drug Administration and deemed safe for use. If you are interested in learning more, you should speak with your dental professional.
Everyone wants better teeth, and it would definitely be nice if those better teeth could be acquired sooner. The general population will likely have to wait until Acceledent becomes more widespread, but for the time being, it is worth keeping an eye on.
