Orthodontic treatment can make a huge difference for both the health and beauty of your smile. However, traditional orthodontics usually takes a few years. New techniques called “accelerated orthodontics” have the same goal as traditional orthodontic treatment, but accomplish these goals in a shorter period of time. If you would like to achieve a straight, healthy smile more quickly, Drs. Liang and Liang may recommend AcceleDent® in Potomac, Maryland.
AcceleDent is a handsfree device that uses SoftPulse Technology® to move the teeth up to 50% faster. The micropulses speed up bone remodeling, which in turn accelerates tooth movement.
When you come to our office, our orthodontists will examine your smile and decide if AcceleDent is right for your orthodontic plan. AcceleDent can be used with fixed braces or clear aligners. To use AcceleDent, insert the AcceleDent mouthpiece, which is fitted around existing orthodontics, turn on the device, and wear the device for 20 minutes every day.
AcceleDent micropulses can not only quicken your orthodontic treatment, they can make your orthodontic treatment more comfortable and pleasant. SoftPulse Technology micropulses are very gentle, exerting up to 8x less force than an electric toothbrush.
