INVISALIGN SYSTEM

Takes a modern approach to straightening teeth.

It uses a series of virtually invisible aligners to gradually straighten teeth.

Proven to successfully correct a wide range of teeth straightening issues. The proprietary SmartForce technology and SmartTrack material help enable results you can rely on.

Your doctor can use Invisalign treatment to treat patients who may have mild crooked teeth or protruding teeth, to much more difficult dental problems involving severe crowding, spacing, overbite, or underbite.

In the instance where your teeth are overly crowded, your doctor may choose a treatment plan that requires extraction, which may also be effectively treated using Invisalign clear aligners.

Over 3 million people worldwide have started Invisalign treatment.

Will the treatment be painful?

Will treatment affect my speech?

Like all orthodontic treatments, the aligners may temporarily affect your speech, and you may have a slight lisp for a day or two. However , as your tongue gets used to having aligners in your mouth, any lisp or minor speech impediment caused by your aligners should disappear.

How does AcceleDent Aura work?

By inserting the mouthpiece around your existing orthodontics and turning on the Activator for 20 minutes every day, AcceleDent Aura can speed up tooth movement by using SoftPulse Technology which releases a safe, effective and gentle pulsation that transmits through the roots of your teeth to the surrounding bone socket. This helps accelerate the cellular response and speeds the rate of tooth movement. AcceleDent has been clinically proven to move teeth up to 50% faster. This can reduce the duration of your orthodontic treatment – and can even help to make your treatment more comfortable.

Is AcceleDent Aura safe?

Yes. AcceleDent with SoftPulse Technology has been demonstrated safe and reliable in US clinical trials.

How is the orthodontic treatment accelerated?

Your orthodontics work on their own by moving your teeth in specific directions. AcceleDent Aura uses SoftPulse Technology to generate small vibrations – micropulses – enhancing the movements directed by your orthodontics allowing for faster tooth movement.

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 AcceleDent Aura in place without using your hands. Avoid biting forcibly on the Mouthpiece as that may cause excessive wear.

Can I try to wear AcceleDent Aura while I am sleeping?

No. it is not recommended that AcceleDent Aura be used while sleeping.

Can I wear my AcceleDent Aura when it is charging or connected to computer?

No, do not wear your AcceleDent Aura when it is charging or connected to computer.

Do I have to do the full 20 minute treatment at one time?

Yes. It is recommended that you use your AcceleDent Aura for a continuous 20 minute period each day.

If I absolutely have to interrupt the 20 minute session for a few minutes, when I turn my AcceleDent Aura back on, does it remember how long I used it?

Yes. AcceleDent Aura will remember how long you used it as long as the interruption does not exceed 5 minutes. After 5 minutes of being turned off, AcceleDent Aura will work for a full session of 20 minutes at its next use.

Is 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.

How often does AcceleDent Aura need to be recharged?

The Activator should be recharged every 3 to 5 days or when you switch on the Activator and you see the indicator flashing orange.
