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 later in life. The stigma of getting fitted with orthodontic appliances has changed massively in the last few decades. How they affect your levels of attraction are still, of course, going to be a concern. Additionally fitted braces will also limit what types of food you can eat, and that is never fun.
In the long term, however, it’s always better to fix any dental problems early on, before they become serious problems that take much longer to fix.
If you make an appointment to 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 maybe Invisalign will be the better choice. Heritage Orthodontics’ very own Dr. Selnes has been a top 1% Invisalign provider since 2008. One of the major benefits of Invisalign is that, if it’s the appropriate choice for you, it has a proven track of being a faster treatment option.
And getting your teeth perfectly 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.
One of the best ways to speed up the process of tooth movement is to use AcceleDent.
What is 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.
