Dr. Pendleton is committed to bringing his patients from throughout the Leander, TX, area the very latest in orthodontic dental technology. One great example is AcceleDent®, an innovative new device that can actually reduce the amount of time you need to spend wearing braces or aligner trays!
What You Should Know about AcceleDent®
The AcceleDent® device looks very much like a mouth guard or a traditional retainer, but it does so much more! When the patient wears the AcceleDent® mouthpiece for 20 minutes a day, it pulsates, which stimulates cellular activity and helps to speed up bone remodeling. The pulsating action of this remarkable device creates microvibrations inside a patient’s mouth. When coupled with the orthodontic device worn by the patient – for example, braces, aligner trays or any other orthodontic device – it actually helps to shift teeth into their new straighter positions faster than would normally happen. That’s how AcceleDent® can reduce the amount of time the patient needs to spend wearing an orthodontic device!
Dr. Pendleton would like his patients to know exactly how easy it is to use this amazing device. All you need to do is put the AcceleDent® mouthpiece in place, then bite down on it hard enough to start the activator. You can simply leave it in your mouth for 20 minutes after that, and go ahead with whatever other chores or tasks you have to do during that time. At the end of the 20-minute period, you simply remove the device until you use it again the next day.
There’s an App for That!
AcceleDent® also has an app that was designed to provide both the patient and the orthodontist with an easy way to track the patient’s usage of the device, present patient “rewards” along the way, and enable direct messaging as well. Although it’s not required that you use the app, you may like the features it provides and find that it helps motivate you to use the AcceleDent® device on a regular basis.
