News Nick's Notes Acceledent Appliance

Acceledent Appliance


OA uses the application of pulsing forces to enhance standard braces or aligners and moves teeth faster through accelerated bone remodeling. This science has been applied in other parts of the body, for example  increasing the rate of fracture healing and bone density in long bones. The OA appliance is a removable device (pictured below), similar to a retainer with a small motor, into which the patient bites. The premise is simple. Rather than using only constant pressure, the device applies very light vibrations to the dentition. The patient places and activates the device daily for twenty minutes of gentle pulsing. Users can carry out most routine daily tasks during the activation period; the device is rechargeable via a docking station (which also captures and displays compliance data). Most importantly, it is intended to work with all existing fixed appliance (bracket) systems.
