HOUSTON, Feb. 9, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The leader in accelerated orthodontics, OrthoAccel® Technologies, Inc. announced that AcceleDent® is the recipient of the 2015 Townie Choice Award in the accelerated treatment technology category. An FDA-cleared, Class II medical device that speeds up orthodontic tooth movement by as much as 50 percent and relieves pain often associated with treatment, AcceleDent was selected by orthodontists from across the world who participated in the annual Orthotown survey of the most reliable and reputable products in orthodontics. This is the first year that orthodontists were surveyed about accelerated treatment technologies by Orthotown, and AcceleDent emerged as the winner among two other category nominees.
AcceleDent is now available in more than 3,000 orthodontic locations in North America and OrthoAccel representatives credit the rapid increase in awareness to the positive clinical results that AcceleDent providers have shared with the orthodontic community. Many of the nation's leading orthodontists recommend AcceleDent as the only fast, safe and gentle solution to accelerate orthodontic treatment.
"It's an honor to have orthodontists recognize AcceleDent as the preferred technology to provide patients what they want –faster orthodontic treatment with less discomfort," said Michael K. Lowe, president and CEO of OrthoAccel. "This award further demonstrates OrthoAccel's commitment to revolutionizing the orthodontic industry by enhancing the patient treatment experience."
Lowe adds that in addition to clinical results that show the device's effectiveness, orthodontists continue to integrate noninvasive AcceleDent into their practices because of high patient satisfaction marks. In an independent survey, 100 percent of patients surveyed report they are satisfied with their experience using AcceleDent and that it was easy to use.
Orthodontic patients gently bite on AcceleDent's mouthpiece for 20 minutes daily and gentle pulsations employed by patented SoftPulse Technology® work at a cellular level to accelerate bone modeling and remodeling in the craniofacial region. Patients report that AcceleDent's pulsations relieve the pain often associated with orthodontic treatment.
