Acceledent: the fastest orthodontics in the world, at last in Murcia

Enjoying a beautiful, white and aligned smile is undoubtedly more important for the majority of the population, since studies carried out by the American Academy of Esthetic Dentistry They point out that this is an important factor in finding a partner or being recruited for a job, for example.

As a result, more and more people are interested in aligning their teeth and improving their occlusion, so they are deciding to wear orthodontic braces, which can be increasingly aesthetic, so that the traditional metal brackets are now joined by new, much more discreet alternatives:

- Ceramic, sapphire or composite brackets

- Lingual brackets, which go on the inside of the tooth

- Comfortable and aesthetically pleasing plastic orthodontic systems

Even so, when an adult or adolescent decides to start orthodontic treatment, the question they often ask their orthodontist is: how long will I have to wear braces for? Treatment time is something that has been the subject of much research in recent years, with positive results for treatments that are, however, often very invasive:

- Corticotomies which involve cutting the bone of the jaws to stimulate cellular activity, which is positive but involves a surgical intervention.

- Drugs that stimulate cell development and bone remodelling, but in some cases have side effects

- Prostaglandin injections that improve bone development, with the drawback of frequent needle injections

However, US researchers have developed a new device, Acceledent, which by applying cyclic loads (vibrations) to the teeth can reduce the duration of any orthodontic treatment by up to 50%, so that patients can wear braces for half the usual time.

The Acceledent device is small, comfortable and safe.
