CitiDent announces that it is now offering AcceleDent to area patients. AcceleDent, an FDA-approved orthodontic treatment available since 2009, speeds treatment significantly while increasing comfort at the same time. Rather than being a standalone treatment, AcceleDent is a handheld, prescription-only device that works with virtually all types of braces and Invisalign. Carefully calibrated vibrations, known as micro-pulses, underlie the effectiveness of AcceleDent. CitiDent patients are already celebrating the arrival of this treatment to the office. Anita, an orthodontic patient at CitiDent, said, "I'd been wishing I could find AcceleDent at a dentist near me since I first heard of it. I'm so glad it's offered here."

Orthodontics work through the application of force by either brackets and wires or aligners, which force the ligaments holding teeth in place to change position permanently. These changes take time to bring about, and the process is often uncomfortable for brief periods along the way. AcceleDent, by gently vibrating the tissues around the teeth, allows the braces to work more quickly and with less pain. According to researchers, just 20 minutes of AcceleDent use per day can shorten braces treatment by as much as 50 percent.

Numerous orthodontic treatments are available at CitiDent, including traditional braces and several discreet options, such as clear braces, and Invisalign.
