INVISALIGN Tx with Orthopulse Light Accelerator

179 Rating(s).


Posted on By Maurice Salama In Orthodontics

Adult male patient with full arch cross bite and malaligned dentition requested an option of therapy that would provide correction of his bite, an esthetic outcome and in a limited time span. We offered this patient INVISLAIGN, selective IPR and rapid orthodontic tooth movement time frame using Orthopulse light accelerator to change the trays every 5 days rather than every 2 weeks completing treatment in 9 months.

Acceledent process of 20 minutes /day
How Teeth Move;
Teeth move through a process called bone remodeling. When force is applied to the teeth, bone cells (osteoblasts and osteoclasts) are mobilized around the root of the tooth. This cellular response causes changes in the bone surrounding the tooth, enabling orthodontics to guide tooth movement.

How AcceleDent® Works
AcceleDent’s patented SoftPulse Technology® applies precisely calibrated vibrations called micropulses that transmit through the roots of your teeth to the surrounding bone. This gentle vibration helps increase the cellular activity in the bone and has been shown to speed up tooth movement.

Plenty of studies no consistent effects on these “acelerators” of tx. Only aceleration tx that really works is Corticotomies. I have used a couple of “alternatives” to Corticotomies w/o any faster movement. Including propel and acceleredent. I have even done small holes with a TAD in patients that did not wanted to go through corticotomies with small/limited success. Unfortunately for me the only way to go for now for faster tx is Corticotomies. Regards

Miguel; thanks for your comments. I believe electro-magnetic frequency, pulse vibrations and RAP phenomenon with corticotomies have all been suggested with varying degrees of REAL firm split mouth studies......too bad we still have luittle PROOF in 2018 that any of these work and if so HOW MUCH?
regards Maurice
