7 Advantages of AcceleDent® Optima™

By April 15, 2022November 21st, 2022Orthodontics

There’s no denying it. Many people view time as the most precious, priceless, and powerful because it’s ever-fleeting. Once time is gone, it’s gone.

Although orthodontic treatment timelines vary from person to person, what if we told you that we could help you cut your treatment timeline by as much as half? Dr. Timothy E. Mickiewicz prescribes AcceleDent Optima in conjunction with orthodontic treatment to help patients maximize their time and orthodontic treatments.

How does AcceleDent Optima Work?

Whether you choose traditional braces or clear aligners, orthodontic appliances basically all work the same way. Orthodontic appliances adjust the delicate ligaments around the tooth roots to remodel the surrounding bone. Over time, your teeth and tooth roots loosen from gentle force and are slowly manipulated into the desired alignment.

With SoftPulse Technology®, AcceleDent Optima accurately applies calibrated vibrations known as micropulses. Micropulses transmit through the tooth roots to the surrounding bone, which increases activity at a cellular level and accelerates the rate at which your teeth can move.

1.     Fast-Track Orthodontic Treatment

Do you have a special event coming up soon? Many social events, such as weddings or class reunions, come with pictures, and it’s natural to want your smile to look its very best.

AcceleDent Optima can help you complete your orthodontic treatment faster than braces or clear aligners alone. Now, that’s something to smile about.

2.     Reduce Orthodontic Discomfort

A normal side effect of braces or clear aligner therapy is mild discomfort immediately after an adjustment. Although adjustment pain rarely lasts longer than a week, it still exists. Some patients reach for pain medication or apply topical oral anesthetics to help manage the soreness.

In many cases, it’s wiser to be proactive than reactive to pain management—and AcceleDent promises to reduce up to 71% of the pain and discomfort associated with braces and aligners.

3.     Convenient and Simple to Use

AcceleDent was designed to fit into your daily routine easily. This portable, hands-free device only takes 20 minutes per day. So that you can easily use it when making family dinner, catching up on your favorite TV show, or browsing the internet.

4.     Appropriate for Any Form of Orthodontic Treatment

Because the device comfortably fits over your teeth, AcceleDent Optima can work for braces or clear aligners.

5.     Powerful Yet Gentle

While we’ve mentioned that SoftPulse Technology is powerful enough to shorten orthodontic treatment significantly, you may be surprised to discover that micropulses are genuinely gentle. To illustrate, micropulses exert up to 8x less force than an electric toothbrush and 200x less force than normal chewing forces.

6.     Improve Overall Oral Health

Speeding up the orthodontic treatment process may also diminish other oral health issues, such as the formation of cavities, periodontal disease, and white spots (after braces).

7.     Less In-Person Appointments

Inadvertently, a faster orthodontic timeline could yield fewer in-person appointments so you can spend your time doing what you want instead of what you are obligated to do.

Get a Straighter Smile at an Accelerated Pace

Bottom line, AcceleDent Optima is a clinically proven system that’s easy to use and is clinically proven to boost tooth movement speed while diminishing soreness.If you have any questions about how AcceleDent Optima works or other services at our Sacramento practice, call 916-469-9178 or message us online today.
