STEP 1: SCANNING – The orthodontic assistant scans your teeth using the intra-oral scanner to create a 3D digital image on the computer. A series of pictures are taken to get the exact shape and contour of your mouth and teeth. This
can be used to create orthodontic appliances or to fabricate Invisalign aligners.
STEP 2: IMMEDIATE VISUALIZATION – Teeth Models build in real-time providing immediate feedback for patient and parent consultation.
STEP 3: DIGITAL IMPRESSION REVIEW We review the 3D digital impression for optimal treatment planning.
STEP 4: INVISALIGN PATIENTS This exceptional new technology is also known to be accurate, more environmentally friendly, and able to produce better-fitting Invisalign aligners with a significant reduction in fabrication time. With the
scanner, our Dual Image Orthodontics team can keep you smiling from the first step of treatment to the last!
AcceleDent works by inserting a special mouthpiece with the pulse activator for 20 minutes a day. It uses gentle micropulses, called SoftPulse Technology® allowing movement of your teeth. Fitted around your existing braces AcceleDent can speed up
tooth movement decreasing the duration of your orthodontic treatment. This patented technology will very gently vibrate through your teeth and gums to accelerate tooth movement guided by your existing orthodontic appliance and treatments. In order
for the Acceledent procedure to be effective, patients are required to commit to at least 20 minutes a day.
AcceleDent is easy to use. Simply press the removable mouthpiece into the activator, bite down firmly enough to hold the device in place and turn it on. Relax while you watch TV, read a book or listen to music during the required 20 minutes of use
for AcceleDent to function effectively.
Numerous studies have demonstrated AcceleDent’s benefits in safely speeding bone tooth movement. When used as directed in conjunction with orthodontic treatment, it offers benefits including: Faster tooth movement without sacrificing aesthetics Can
