It’s called the AcceleDent System and as an FDA-cleared innovation, this new technology has been tested and proven to reduce the time it takes to get that Hollywood look. With the help of traditional braces that positions teeth by applying force to the teeth; adding 20 minutes of this will speed up the movement of the teeth.

Through a clinical trial conducted by the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio the results of the additional vibration to encourage teeth movement resulted in acceleration by 106% during the initial alignment phase and as time progress it continued to show between a 38-50% increases in acceleration.

For those who do have braces, it would be an added benefit to reduce the time of having to re-tighten the braces.Not much is known of the price or even if insurance will accept the new product, so the financial benefits are yet to be seen.
