Speed Up Your Orthodontic Treatment Time With AcceleDent

What Is AcceleDent?

In orthodontic treatment, teeth move through a process called bone remodeling. When force is applied to the teeth, bone cells called osteoblasts and osteoclasts are mobilized around the root of the tooth. This cellular response causes changes in the bone surrounding the tooth, enabling an orthodontic appliance to guide the tooth to its proper place. Orthodontic treatment is a worthwhile investment in your smile and your future. However, some patients become a little discouraged by the length of treatment time to completion. That’s why we provide AcceleDent technology to dramatically shorten the time you spend in treatment!
