Learn about AcceleDent® Aura is an FDA-cleared medical device offered by your orthodontist. It is used for 20 minutes daily at home during orthodontic treatment, along with your fixed braces or clear aligners.
AcceleDent answers two questions often associated with orthodontic treatment: How long is treatment? And, will there be any discomfort associated with treatment? AcceleDent, Leader in Accelerated Orthodontics®, is an FDA-cleared, class II medical device clinically proven to move teeth up to 50% faster. Simple-to-use and hands-free, AcceleDent is clinically shown to reduce discomfort that may be associated with orthodontic treatment. AcceleDent is the fast, safe and gentle way to speed orthodontic treatment.
Why should you consider adding AcceleDent Aura to your orthodontic treatment routine? AcceleDent uses SoftPulse Technology® to speed up the natural movement of your teeth for less time with braces or other orthodontic treatments. In just 20 minutes a day, the tiny vibrations caused by AcceleDent can expedite tooth movement by up to 50%. This means less time in the orthodontist’s chair and straighter teeth, faster. But don’t just take our word for it.

How does AcceleDent Aura work?
By inserting the Mouthpiece – fitted around your existing fixed braces or clear aligners– and turning on the Activator for 20 minutes every day, AcceleDent Aura can speed up tooth movement by using SoftPulse Technology®. Faster tooth movement may decrease the duration of your orthodontic treatment and can even help to make your orthodontics more comfortable.
Yes. AcceleDent with SoftPulse Technology® has been demonstrated safe and reliable in U.S. clinical trials.
How is the orthodontic treatment accelerated?
Your orthodontics work on their own by moving your teeth in specific directions. AcceleDent Aura uses SoftPulse Technology® to generate small vibrations, or micropulses, enhancing the movements directed by your orthodontics, allowing for faster tooth movement.
What documents do I need to provide?
To begin, our office will need the patient’s CVB information. Then patients will be able to discuss the treatment and process with our dentists. During this visit, information on the exact documentation needed to proceed will be provided.
How do I know if I am biting into the Mouthpiece correctly and with the right amount of force?
Bite pressure on the Mouthpiece should be just firm enough to hold AcceleDent Aura in place without using your hands. Avoid biting forcibly on the Mouthpiece as that may cause excessive wear.
Can I try to wear AcceleDent Aura while I am sleeping?
No. It is not recommended that AcceleDent Aura be used while sleeping.
