Invisalign is known for being discreet, comfortable, and removable. However, there is another reason patients choose the clear aligners to address misaligned teeth: quicker treatment timelines. Although the average patient wears Invisalign for only 12 months (which is significantly shorter than the 18+ months associated with traditional braces), you can shave even more time off your treatment with AcceleDent! Keep reading to learn what it is.
What Is AcceleDent?
If this is the first time you’ve heard of AcceleDent, you may be wondering what it is exactly. Basically, this innovative, comfortable, safe technology gently vibrates the teeth and surrounding bone. Don’t worry – the tingling sensation resembles the feeling of an electric toothbrush, so there is no pain associated with it. By simply using it for 20 minutes a day, your teeth will move more freely, shaving months off your treatment timeline.
Is AcceleDent Right for Me?
Wondering if AcceleDent is right for you? The answer is most likely yes! After all, it’s suitable for patients of all ages and with all kinds of orthodontic issues. With that being said, it’s always a good idea to speak directly with your dentist. Since they have an in-depth understanding of your medical history, dental needs, and smile goals, they’ll be able to accurately determine your candidacy.
6 Additional Tips for Successful Invisalign Treatment
There is no denying the effectiveness of AcceleDent. However, it can’t do all of the work for you, meaning if you don’t follow your dentist’s instructions, you can still delay your treatment timeline. To prevent that from happening, make sure to implement the following best practices:
- Wear your aligners for 22 hours a day, no exceptions.
- Rinse your aligners with lukewarm, never hot, water.
- Implement a solid oral hygiene routine.
- Switch to each new set of aligners on the right day.
- Prioritize your follow-up appointments throughout your treatment.
- Store your aligners in a designated case when not in use.
Waiting to see your dream smile takes all the patience in the world. Fortunately, AcceleDent allows you to shave up to a few months off your treatment timeline in a safe, comfortable, pain-free way. To learn more, schedule a consultation with your dentist!
