OrthoAccel is the maker of Acceledent, a new technology that helps us deliver faster orthodontic treatment to our patients. We have been very happy with the results we have been able to achieve, and we’re happy to see that the company has posted its own before and after gallery that lets it showcase some of the best cases from around the country.
In this new gallery, there are over 40 case studies that include both the original projected time, and the actual treatment time using AcceleDent. The amount of time reduction in each case varied, but it could be as much as 67% of the projected treatment time, shaving as much as 24 months off the total time for treatment.
A Diversity of Cases
One of the best things about this case gallery is how it highlights that AcceleDent can be used along with virtually any orthodontic treatment. The gallery is divided into Class I, Class II, and Class III orthodontic treatments. Class I orthodontic treatments have a normal relationship between the upper and lower jaw, and may have crowding or spacing. In Class II, the upper jaw projects forward over the lower jaw. In Class III, the lower jaw is moved forward.
In all these cases, AcceleDent helps accelerate treatment.
The gallery also shows that the actual type of orthodontic appliance doesn’t matter. The case studies include treatment with:
- Self-ligating brackets
- Damon brackets
- Insignia brackets
- Esprit appliance with Xbow
- In-Ovation brackets
- MBT Brackets
Whether we’re looking at treatment using Invisalign, traditional braces, or a removable appliance like the Ingman Aligner.
Detailed Information and Beautiful Results
The other value of the case studies is that it shows the quality of results that can be achieved using orthodontic treatments and AcceleDent. The before and after pictures can be used to show all the different types of tooth movements that can be accelerated with OrthoAccel.
And the information is more than just simple pictures. Clicking on any of the case studies brings up detailed information about all the cases so it can help you get a better idea about what can be achieved.
Perhaps the only major complaint we have about this gallery is that it doesn’t include a measure of discomfort experienced. We know from studies that AcceleDent not only moves teeth faster, it reduces the discomfort associated with orthodontic treatment.
