In today’s day and age, people are always on the run. Being busy is the new status quo, and there is no sign that this will change anytime soon. We want anything and everything, now. Speed and efficiency are constant themes in promotional material. Is it possible for us to apply this concept to orthodontics?

I Song Orthodontics strives to do just that. Technology not only benefits us in the way we live our day to day lives, but it’s also made improvements within the orthodontic field as well. Traditionally, correcting teeth meant an 18-24 month commitment- but there is a new, simple, non-surgical technology that speeds this process up drastically.

This technology is called AcceleDent, and it is possible due to the technological advances in the field and bone biology. Soft Pulse Technology is used by AcceleDent to deliver micropulses to the mouth and facilitate tooth movement and correction. It is much like a mouthpiece. You put it in place, turn it on, and leave it in place for 20 minutes per day. The mouthpiece will deliver tiny vibrations, and this is what speeds up the process. While you are using the mouthpiece you are free to go about your daily tasks and continue to be productive. AcceleDent requires almost minimal or no downtime.

Orthodontics in and of itself is the altering and remodeling of the bones surrounding the teeth. AcceleDent is FDA approved and has been since 2013. It is beneficial not only in saving time with traditional braces, but also for those using Invisalign. Plus, not only does it shorten the time the users have to wear braces, but it also reduces the amount of pain that these individuals will experience. Because the overall correction time is shortened, this helps with dental hygiene significantly when compared to traditional dentistry. It is for all of these reasons and the overall ease and appeal of this technology that Acceledent is wholeheartedly recommended by the orthodontist at I Song.

I Song Orthodontics is located in and serves the Berkeley, Albany and El Cerrito areas. Call us today to schedule your consultation.
