At Crichigno Orthodontics our Doctor and his team are always working to provide patients with the most effective and efficient care possible. One of the ways we do so is by staying up to date on the latest in orthodontic technology. Dr. Crichigno brings the very best in orthodontic technology to his Hamilton and Stoney Creek offices.
Groundbreaking Technology In Orthodontic Care
We are proud to be able to offer patients the AcceleDent System, the first and only orthodontic micropulse device. AcceleDent, an FDA-cleared Class II medical device is extremely beneficial to orthodontic patients in the following ways:
- Complements conventional fixed braces with compelling clinical results —
- Significantly faster treatment times and reduced patient discomfort —
- Only 20 minutes of use per day.
At this point you are probably wondering how this technology works. By leveraging established clinical technology in orthopedic bone remodeling, AcceleDent generates precisely calibrated micropulses to accelerate tooth movement and reduce treatment time.
Taking Orthodontic Care To The Next Level
Orthodontic treatment time changes from case to case, however with Acceledent patients can speed up their treatment time.
- Tooth movement is accelerated by 106% during initial alignment and up to 50% during closure of extraction space—potentially shortening conventional orthodontic treatment time by 5 months.
- Safety was demonstrated in U.S. trials at two orthodontic programs with no evidence of increased root resorption, no serious adverse events, and no difference in loss of posterior anchorage.
- AcceleDent has over 2 years of international clinical experience in private practice
