Are You Considering Orthodontic Work?
It’s a big commitment deciding to choose to fix misaligned teeth. It doesn’t matter whether you’re in your teens or you’re in the later years of your life. The good news is that the stigma of wearing orthodontic appliances has changed massively in the last few decades. How they affect your levels of attraction could still be a concern, as well as the limitations to what types of food you can eat at times.
In the long term, however, it’s better to fix any dental problems early on. That way they don’t become more serious and require more money and more time to fix later on.
If you make an appointment with either of Heritage Orthodontics’ Georgetown or Mississauga clinics, our specialists will be able to advise you on which specific orthodontic appliance is right for you.
Maybe you need fitted braces or Invisalign will be the better choice based on your unique needs. Heritage Orthodontics’ very own Dr. Selnes has been a top 1% Invisalign provider since 2008. One of the major benefits of Invisalign is that it is proven to be be the fastest treatment option.
Getting your teeth fixed in the fastest time possible is what Heritage Orthodontics cares most about. That’s because we know that’s what you care about, as well.
What is AcceleDent?
One of the best ways to speed up the process of tooth movement is to use AcceleDent.
First, it may be useful to have a basic understanding of how orthodontics guide tooth movement. Teeth move through a process called bone remodeling. By applying force to teeth, bone cells become mobilized around the root of the tooth. This cellular response causes changes in the bone surrounding the tooth. That is what we refer to as bone remodeling.
AcceleDent has been designed with this bone cell activation in mind. It’s patented SoftPulseTechnology applies precisely calibrated vibrations called micropulses. These micropulses are transmitted through the roots of your teeth to the surrounding bone. The cellular activity is increased by these gentle vibrations, which in turn speeds up the rate in which your teeth can move.
AcceleDent is an FDA-cleared medical device, clinically proven to move teeth up to 50% faster! It’s an adjunctive therapy that’s been designed to combine with your regular orthodontic treatment. These include metal braces, clear braces, as well as Invisalign.
AcceleDent’s micropulses are safe and gentle, and exert less force than when you are brushing your teeth! In fact, the micropulses exert up to 8x less force than a power toothbrush and 200x less force than ordinary chewing.
Not only does Acceledent increase tooth movement speed, but many of our patients at Heritage Orthodontics have said that they felt less tooth pain when they used AcceleDent. In fact, clinical trials have shown that the pain and discomfort associated with braces and aligners can be reduced by up to 71%.
There are a lot of advantages to AcceleDent. It is portable and hands-free and you only have to use it 20 minutes per day! That’s not a lot when you think of the speed it will give to achieving the results you want.
If you’re someone who wants to look in the mirror and see those freshly fixed teeth as soon as possible, then AcceleDent is definitely something to consider.
If you want to know more, then please arrange an appointment at Heritage Orthodontics and be sure to ask about AcceleDent.
