Tooth misalignments, also called malocclusions, affect many people. These orthodontic issues can manifest in a variety of ways. But whatever your specific malocclusion, Goodman Orthodontics has the orthodontic treatment to not only correct the problem, but also achieve the optimal smile you desire.

Patients from Manhattan, Riverdale, and the greater New York City area entrust their malocclusion care to our orthodontist, Dr. Adam Goodman. Dr. Goodman and his team combine high-quality treatment with compassionate care at every turn. We skillfully utilize the latest in orthodontic technologies like AcceleDent to make treatment faster and as efficient as possible.

What Is AcceleDent?

Think of AcceleDent as a boost to your orthodontic treatment, one that can work in coordination with the many types of braces offered at Goodman Orthodontics.

Here’s how it works. AcceleDent is a handheld device that fits comfortably over your braces. The mouthpiece of the device uses SoftPulse Technology™ to send vibrating pulses through your teeth. These vibrations are precisely calibrated to affect the ligaments holding the teeth in place, influencing them to move more readily into their new positions.

As a result, thanks to this FDA-approved device, patients can see alignment results even faster than with braces alone. In fact, AcceleDent can reduce the time patients spend in braces by 38% to 50%.

Using AcceleDent

This innovative, hands-free device is designed for patients to use in the comfort and privacy of their own homes. Each patient must closely follow the treatment schedule outlined by his or her orthodontist in order to achieve target alignment results. But do not worry; using AcceleDent is quite easy and involves only a few steps:

  • The patient bites down on the mouthpiece.
  • The mouthpiece is kept in place for 20 minutes while treatment takes place.
  • The process is repeated according to the schedule personalized by your orthodontist.
  • The AcceleDent mouthpiece is placed in a charger when not in use; this keeps it ready for your next treatment session. The charger also keeps a record of your treatment experience, which your orthodontist can use to help gauge your progress.
