AcceleDent answers two questions often associated with orthodontic treatment: How long is treatment? And, will there be any discomfort associated with treatment? AcceleDent, Leader in Accelerated Orthodontics®, is an FDA-cleared, class II medical device clinically proven to move teeth up to 50% faster. Simple-to-use and hands-free, AcceleDent is clinically shown to reduce discomfort that may be associated with orthodontic treatment. AcceleDent is the fast, safe and gentle way to speed orthodontic treatment.
How does AcceleDent work?
By inserting the Mouthpiece – fitted around your existing fixed braces or clear aligners– and turning on the Activator for 20 minutes every day, AcceleDent can speed up tooth movement by using SoftPulse Technology®. Faster tooth movement may decrease the duration of your orthodontic treatment and can even help to make your orthodontics more comfortable.
What does it mean if my Activator stops working and the LED Indicator is flashing alternating green and orange?
The Activator will deactivate after completing the equivalent of 18 months of 20 minute daily sessions. If you are in the middle of a treatment plan please contact your orthodontist.
Can I sanitize my AcceleDent and share it with a friend or family member who also has braces?
No. AcceleDent is a FDA cleared, single-user prescription device. Sharing the AcceleDent and/or the Mouthpiece is prohibited. Your orthodontist prescribed AcceleDent for your use only, based upon your unique orthodontic treatment plan. Use of AcceleDent without the supervision and direction of an orthodontist may result in adverse unintended consequences.
How is the orthodontic treatment accelerated?
Your orthodontics work on their own by moving your teeth in specific directions. AcceleDent uses SoftPulse Technology® to generate small vibrations, or micropulses, enhancing the movements directed by your orthodontics, allowing for faster tooth movement.
AcceleDent® Patient Use and Care
AcceleDent is a simple-to-use, hands-free device designed for faster orthodontic treatment. AcceleDent uses SoftPulse Technology® to speed up tooth movement. It does this by generating small vibrations, called micropulses, to gently accelerate the movement of your teeth as they are guided by your orthodontics. These micropulses can also help make your orthodontics more comfortable.

"I was able to convince my orthodontist to try AcceleDent on me, and am happy to report that it cut my treatment time in half! I’ve used AcceleDent EVERY single day and I LOVE IT!"
Cynthia S., AcceleDent Patient
"AcceleDent is truly a great device and my orthodontist has been very impressed. I told her it’s the sort of option that would compel a patient like me (who seeks out multiple second opinions!) to select an orthodontist over others."
- Scott L., AcceleDent Patient
"Started my orthodontic treatment in March and I am getting AMAZING results with my AcceleDent! I can’t believe the progress, and my orthodontist and staff continue to be as amazed as I am, using words like “WOW” and “This thing really works!” My projected two-year treatment period will be trimmed down to roughly nine months! Simply amazing and I couldn’t be a bigger fan!"
