Would you like to enjoy your straighter, healthier new smile in less time? With less discomfort?
Dr. Raj Upadya can help you to achieve faster results with more comfortable orthodontic treatment using AcceleDent®. This FDA-cleared device has been clinically proven to accelerate the process of tooth movement by stimulating faster bone cell growth and remodeling when used in combination with your orthodontics. AcceleDent® is one of the cosmetic dentistry services we provide to new and existing patients.
Straightening crooked and misaligned teeth is often important and/or necessary for long-term dental health, recommended to resolve a wide range of dental concerns including bite problems. Many adult patients avoid or resist necessary orthodontic treatment due to the hassles commonly associated with braces, including additional visits to the dentist.

This revolutionary technology can restore dental health in almost half of the traditional treatment times.

How Does AcceleDent Work?
AcceleDent is both safe and effective and has been cleared by the FDA. This easy to use, hand held device is made up of a mouthpiece that is connected to an activator that you must keep charged. You simply place the mouthpiece in your mouth and over your teeth and firmly bite down on it to hold it in place. Do not use your hands to hold it. With daily 20 minute sessions, you will accelerate the repositioning of your teeth.
The device produces micro-pulses that enhance the bone remodeling already being stimulated by your orthodontic treatment for tooth movement. This process has also been proven to reduce the discomfort some patients experience as their teeth are repositioned. You can wear braces or clear aligners for a shorter amount of time but still get the same results.
We recommend you do the treatment at about the same time every day. It is not necessary to use it for more than twenty minutes as it will not speed up the desired results. It is important to keep the mouthpiece clean. You will need to remove it from the activator and rinse it with lukewarm water after each use. The activator is not waterproof. To keep it clean wipe it down every so often with a soft cloth.
What Are The Benefits of AcceleDent?
Busy schedule? Travel frequently? AcceleDent can enable you to achieve the smile you desire without the lengthy commitment then traditional orthodontic treatment can require.
AcceleDent can significantly reduce treatment time for orthodontic patients. In as little as 20 minutes, this handheld device can speed up the changes needed within your bone structure to accommodate teeth repositioning.
One of the key benefits of using AcceleDent with your orthodontic treatment is a reduced number of visits to the dentist office. Treatment times can be cut almost in half for most patients, enabling you to resume your daily life faster with a straighter and healthier smile!
