Orthodontic treatment can make a huge difference for the health and beauty of your smile. However, traditional orthodontics usually takes a few years. Luckily, there are quicker options. New techniques called “accelerated orthodontics” have the same goal as traditional orthodontic treatment, but accomplish these goals in a shorter time period. If you would like to achieve a straight, healthy smile more quickly, our orthodontist may recommend AcceleDent® in Payson, Arizona.

AcceleDent is a handsfree device that uses SoftPulse Technology® to move the teeth up to 50% faster. SoftPulse Technology uses micropulses to speed up bone remodeling, which in turn accelerates tooth movement.

When you come to our office, Dr. Ben McDowell will determine if AcceleDent is right for your orthodontic needs. Braces and clear aligners treatment can both be accelerated with AcceleDent. To use AcceleDent, insert the AcceleDent mouthpiece, which is fitted around existing orthodontics, turn on the device, and wear the device for 20 continuous minutes every day.

AcceleDent micropulses can quicken your orthodontic treatment, as well as make your orthodontic treatment more comfortable. SoftPulse Technology micropulses are gentle. In fact, they exert up to 8x less force than an electric toothbrush.

We encourage you to contact Payson Orthodontics today to learn more about AcceleDent and to schedule a consultation.
