AcceleDent® Aura FAQs

AcceleDent Aura

The remarkable new AcceleDent Aura technology speeds orthodontic treatment up to 50%. If you have any questions about your orthodontic treatment, or if you're curious how AcceleDent Aura can help speed up your orthodontic experience, contact our office!

How does AcceleDent Aura work?

By fitting the mouthpiece around your existing orthodontic appliance and using the device for 20 minutes every day, AcceleDent Aura can speed up tooth movement through the use of SoftPulse Technology®. Faster tooth movement may decrease the duration of your orthodontic treatment and can help make your orthodontic experience more comfortable.

Is AcceleDent Aura safe?

Yes! AcceleDent Aura with SoftPulse Technology has been proven safe through U.S. clinical trials and is cleared by the FDA as a Class II medical device.

What is SoftPulse Technology and why is it important?

Part of the way your orthodontic treatment works is by changing or remodeling the bones surrounding your teeth. As this remodeling process is accelerated, your teeth move more quickly. That's where AcceleDent Aura comes in! By using tiny vibrations, or micropulses, SoftPulse Technology speeds up bone remodeling and tooth movement.

How much time will AcceleDent Aura reduce my treatment?

Research has shown that tooth movement is accelerated by up to 50%, potentially shortening conventional 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.

If I use AcceleDent Aura for more than the recommended 20 minute treatment time, does it add incremental benefit?

No. Additional daily use greater than the prescribed 20 minutes duration is not recommended.

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.

Can AcceleDent Aura remind me to use it on a daily basis?

No. AcceleDent Aura is not designed to provide reminders. It is recommended that you make AcceleDent Aura part of your daily routine in order to maximize its benefit to you.
