How Does AcceleDent Aura™ work?
The appliance, used daily for 20 minutes, applies patented technology to gently vibrate the teeth and surrounding bone. In a controlled clinical trial, the vibrations have proven to accelerate tooth movement by 38%-50%.
Why are Microvibrations so Important?
The rate of tooth movement greatly depends on the speed at which the bone surrounding the teeth changes. Studies have shown that orthodontic force coupled with micro vibrations, generated by the AcceleDent Aura™ System, safely accelerate tooth movement.
Is AcceleDent Aura™ Safe?
AcceleDent Aura™ is an FDA-cleared, Class II medical device. It has been demonstrated to be safe and reliable in U.S. clinical trials.
If it Accelerates Tooth Movement, Will it Cause More Discomfort?
No. AcceleDent Aura™ is well tolerated and may help to decrease the level of discomfort associated with orthodontic treatment.
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 your AcceleDent Aura in place without using your hands. Avoid biting forcibly into the mouthpiece, as that may cause excessive wear.
What is the best way to clean the AcceleDent Aura device?
The mouthpiece should be rinsed well with lukewarm water after each use. You may occasionally use a soft liquid dishwashing detergent, a mild soap, or toothpaste to gently brush the mouthpiece. The activator can be wiped with a soft cloth as necessary. Do not place the mouthpiece or the activator in a dishwasher, as this will void the warranty and could cause damage to the product.
Can I use my AcceleDent Aura in the shower or when sleeping?
No. AcceleDent Aura is not water resistant and should not be used in the shower. It is also not recommended to use while sleeping.
Can I sanitize my AcceleDent Aura and share it with a friend or family member who also has braces?
No. AcceleDent Aura is an FDA cleared, single-use prescription device. Sharing AcceleDent Aura and/or the mouthpiece is prohibited. Based upon your unique orthodontic treatment plan, your orthodontist prescribed AcceleDent Aura for your use only. Use of AcceleDent Aura without the supervision and direction of an orthodontist may result in adverse, unintended consequences.
Is there some way that AcceleDent Aura can “track” my usage?
Yes. AcceleDent Aura offers a FastTrac Usage Report that includes a usage summary, daily usage graph, and daily usage table. To view the FastTrac Usage Report, connect the AcceleDent Aura to a computer USB port. AcceleDent Aura will register as if it were a flash drive. You may navigate to that drive just as you would for any similar type of flash drive.
