Good Vibrations! Your Rapid Transit Treatment™ may include the absolutely new and exciting innovation, the AcceleDent™ system. This is truly the fast track to straight teeth! Research at the University of Texas Health Science Center reported between 34-50% increase in rate of tooth movement for orthodontic patients who used the AcceleDent™ system. AcceleDent™ is worn 20 minutes per day, it is noninvasive, no medications, no side effects, reduces orthodontic discomfort, but most importantly, Reduces Time in Treatment. Patients reported that their daily routine was not interrupted as they wore the AcceleDent™ device for activities such as watching television, reading, surfing the ‘net on the computer, exercising, walking, or using the stairclimber. These orthodontic patients reported they were “extremely satisfied,” stated that the devices were “easy to use,” while their teeth got straighter more quickly with this orthodontic “time machine.”
Let’s RAP! The latest rap in orthodontics is the Regional Acceleratory Phenomenon (RAP) that refers to locally stimulating tooth movement by introducing tiny bone perforations, the same as those produced when inserting TADs or miniscrew anchors. This concept of facilitating moving teeth reaches back to the 1900s, but has been simplified for today’s RTT™ patient by AlveoLogic™ with the introduction of their Propel™ system; designed specifically to enhance the speed of orthodontic treatments.
