and studies show that having straight teeth evokes a positive impression. Whether it is to boost confidence for socializing or prepare for face-to-face job situations, patients seeking straighter teeth may shorten orthodontic treatment by up to half while using AcceleDent Aura, a new lightweight, hands- free orthodontic device. In fact, the speed AcceleDent Aura offered was comforting to college student Marcus Webb and businessman Anthony Pricco when they donned braces as adults.
“I had an unusual bite and did not receive treatment when I was younger,” said Webb. “For my long-term health, it was important that I address this issue, but as a college student who likes to play basketball, I didn’t want my appearance to be affected for a long period of time or my ability to play basketball to be hampered by invasive procedures. Learning that my treatment would speed up significantly using AcceleDent Aura made the decision to use it a no-brainer for me.”
AcceleDent Aura is a first-of-its-kind medical device which works along with conventional orthodontic treatment to accelerate tooth movement. It is used daily for a recommended 20 minutes, during which users can simultaneously carry out most routine tasks. Its unique SoftPulse®Technology, which generates small vibrations or micropulses, has been reported to make the orthodontic experience not only faster, but also more comfortable.
“Even though I had braces when I was younger, my teeth shifted over the years and my bite needed to be corrected,” said businessman Anthony Pricco. “I wanted to get my braces on and off as quickly as possible, so speeding up the treatment with AcceleDent Aura was ideal for me. I have also noticed that when I’m using AcceleDent Aura, the adjustments that my orthodontist makes to my braces seem to be less painful, and the discomfort from the adjustments lasts for a shorter period of time.”
