Wouldn’t it be nice if the time spent wearing braces or Invisalign could be significantly reduced? The good news is that state-of-the-art orthodontic offices like Gorton and Schmohl Orthodontics now have a safe way to make treatment go faster.
AcceleDent Optima is a technology that lessens the time a patient will need to undergo orthodontics by helping the teeth move into alignment.
It is worn like a sports mouthguard over the braces or Invisalign for 20 minutes a day.
Micro-pulses are sent into the teeth and underlying bone to help them straighten with a motion similar to that of an electric toothbrush but more gentle.
The process has been around since 2009 and has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration.
Dr. Jasmine Gorton and Dr. Bill Schmohl were the first doctors in Marin County to introduce AcceleDent to their patients in early 2014, first with AcceleDent Aura and now with AcceleDent Optima which can be worn in the shower! It’s completely waterproof!
Not only does the AcceleDent Optima system help align the teeth and improve the bite more quickly, but patients report that it makes orthodontics more comfortable. They often describe it as a soothing massage for your teeth!
