Houston, Feb. 12, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- In an industry survey conducted by the magazine Orthotown and released today, orthodontists chose AcceleDent® as their favorite accelerated orthodontic product because it “makes their lives easier, their practices more productive, and their staff and patients happier.” AcceleDent, an FDA-cleared vibratory orthodontic device, has won the coveted Townie Choice Award every year since the accelerated orthodontic category was added in 2015. Manufactured by the leader in accelerated orthodontics, OrthoAccel® Technologies, Inc., AcceleDent employs a patented SoftPulse Technology® that is clinically shown in randomized controlled trials to speed up orthodontic treatment by as much as 50 percent while reducing discomfort by up to 71 percent with clear aligners or braces.
“We are grateful that orthodontists continue to choose AcceleDent as their preferred accelerated orthodontic treatment solution and appreciate Orthotown for including this category in its annual survey,” said David Josza, OrthoAccel’s president and CEO. “The benefits of AcceleDent extend beyond accelerating orthodontic treatment as orthodontists report an overall better orthodontic experience with this noninvasive device that helps them achieve improved predictability and high quality clinical results.”
Several orthodontists have integrated AcceleDent into their standard treatment plan because the device’s low pulsatile forces increase mechanical efficiency of orthodontic treatment with traditional braces and clear aligner therapy. Many of these orthodontists report that when AcceleDent is used in conjunction with clear aligners it creates an optimal fit for the aligners around the teeth, helping the teeth track according to the predicted programmed movements.
In addition to these clinical benefits, 100 percent of patients surveyed in an independent study report that they are satisfied with their experience using AcceleDent and that it was easy to use. Patients use AcceleDent for 20 minutes daily by biting on the device’s mouthpiece that employs gentle vibrations to accelerate tooth movement and reduce discomfort.
Orthodontists are now offering patients AcceleDent Optima, OrthoAccel’s newest generation of vibratory orthodontic technology. Powered by the same SoftPulse Technology as its predecessors, AcceleDent Optima is the first and only orthodontic device that directly connects patients and practices through usage monitoring, direct messaging and virtual awards via the HIPAA-compliant AcceleDent App. This cloud connectivity enables orthodontists and their staff to connect with patients for more proactive case management. Patients who use the device and connect to the app can track their usage, set reminder notifications and compare their treatment progress to other AcceleDent Optima patients.
