AcceleDent is a hands-free device, used daily for a recommended 20 minutes, during which patients can simultaneously carry out routine tasks, such as reading, watching TV, texting, or using a computer or tablet. Its exclusive SoftPulse Technology™, which generates small vibrations (or micropulses), has been reported to make the orthodontic treatment not only faster, but also more comfortable.

Orthodontic Group of the Finger Lakes is the first practice in our area to offer this exciting new technology!

 

Frequently Asked Questions

 

How does AcceleDent® Aura work? By inserting the Mouthpiece – fitted around your existing orthodontics – and turning on the Activator for 20 minutes every day, AcceleDent Aura can speed up tooth movement by using SoftPulse Technology™. Faster tooth movement may decrease the duration of your orthodontic treatment and can even help to make your orthodontics more comfortable.

Is AcceleDent Aura safe? Yes. AcceleDent with SoftPulse Technology™ has been demonstrated safe and reliable in U.S. clinical trials.

How is the orthodontic treatment accelerated? Your orthodontics work on their own by moving your teeth in specific directions. AcceleDent Aura uses SoftPulse Technology™ to generate small vibrations, or micropulses, enhancing the movements directed by your orthodontics, allowing for faster tooth movement.

Do I have to do the full 20 minute treatment at one time? Yes. It is recommended that you use your AcceleDent Aura for a continuous 20 minute period each day.

If I absolutely have to interrupt the 20 minute session for a few minutes, when I turn my AcceleDent Aura back on, does it remember how long I used it? Yes. AcceleDent Aura will remember how long you used it as long as the interruption does not exceed five minutes. After five minutes of being turned on, AcceleDent Aura will work for a full session of 20 minutes at its next use.

If I use AcceleDent Aura for more than the recommended 20 minute treatment time, does it add incremental benefit? No. Additional daily use greater than the prescribed 20 minutes duration is not recommended.

How often does AcceleDent Aura need to be recharged? The Activator should be recharged every three days.

What is the best way to clean AcceleDent Aura? The Mouthpiece should first be disconnected from the Activator and then rinsed well with lukewarm water after each use. You may occasionally use a soft liquid dishwashing detergent, a mild soap, or toothpaste to gently brush the Mouthpiece. The Activator can be wiped with a soft cloth as necessary. It is recommended that you allow AcceleDent Aura to air dry before being stored in the Travel Case. Do not place the Mouthpiece or the Activator in a dishwasher as this will void the warranty and could cause damage to the product.

Can I use my AcceleDent Aura in the shower? No. AcceleDent Aura is not water resistant and should not be used in the shower.

Can I sanitize my AcceleDent Aura and share it with a friend or family member who also has braces? No. AcceleDent Aura is a FDA cleared, single-user prescription device. Sharing the AcceleDent Aura and/or the Mouthpiece is prohibited. AcceleDent Aura will be prescribed for your use only, based upon your unique orthodontic treatment plan. Use of AcceleDent Aura without the supervision and direction of an orthodontist may result in adverse unintended consequences.

What type of battery does AcceleDent Aura contain? The rechargeable battery in AcceleDent Aura is a medical grade lithium ion battery.

What should I do with my AcceleDent Aura once treatment is finished? You should dispose of your AcceleDent Aura as you would with any other device with a rechargeable battery.
