AcceleDent® Optima™ is an innovative third-generation, FDA-approved Class II medical device, developed by OrthoAccel® Technologies, Inc., combining high-tech performance features and a comprehensive app to enhance your orthodontic experience. This safe and effective hands-free device uses SoftPulse Technology® to increase cellular activity. These gentle, micropulse vibrations accelerate orthodontic treatment, allowing teeth to move up to 50% faster because bone remodeling is accelerated. It’s so lightweight and easy-to-use it fits anyone’s lifestyle. Simply use for 20 minutes per day, in conjunction with your orthodontic treatment, while reading a book, watching TV, listening to music, working on the computer or even taking a shower. Its Bluetooth® connectivity allows it to charge wirelessly and sync with the HIPAA-compliant app.
Dr. Greg Greenberg uses the AcceleDent® Optima™ device, along with the AcceleDent app, to help patients get the healthy, beautiful smile they want faster, while decreasing discomfort by up to 70%, in a noninvasive, nonsurgical way. Patients are able to stay on track and motivated with the ability to set up daily treatment reminders, earn awards, share progress with family and friends, and connect with Dr. Greenberg! Parents can also download the app to track their child’s usage and send reminder messages. This easy-to-use AcceleDent app is available on iTunes® and Google Play™ and is similar to popular fitness tracking apps.
How AcceleDent Optima Works
During orthodontic treatment, your teeth move through bone by a process called bone remodeling. When pressure is applied to teeth, bone cells called osteoclasts and osteoblasts mobilize around the roots causing changes in the bone allowing teeth to move.
Research shows that mechanical stimulation of bone can be beneficial in treating bone and muscle loss and increase the rate of healing in bone fractures. AcceleDent® Optima uses this proven method in their SoftPulse Technology®. By transmitting tiny vibrations through the roots of your teeth and into the bone socket, AcceleDent® accelerates cellular response which allows your teeth to move faster. These micropulses are precisely calibrated to work with the treatment prescribed by Dr. Greenberg.
Advantages of using AcceleDent® Optima include:
- Safe: AcceleDent Optima has been cleared by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and used in clinical trials safely.
- Fast: Research shows a faster movement of teeth by up to 50%.
- Comfortable: AcceleDent® can reduce orthodontic discomfort from traditional braces.
- Easy: Treatment requires only 20 minutes per day.
- Gentle: SoftPulse Technology® uses up to 8x less force than a power toothbrush.
- Reduce Risk: Accelerating the orthodontic treatment process can also reduce oral health issues by decreasing the risk of white spots, cavities and gum inflammation
