AcceleDent™ is a simple, removable appliance that an orthodontic patient wears in the mouth for 20 minutes daily to accelerate orthodontic tooth movement. The device was cleared by FDA for use by patients in the United States in November 2011. A Randomized, Controlled Clinical Trial, recently conducted at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio, demonstrated with statistical significance that tooth movement could be safely accelerated by 38% to 50% during space closure and even more so during the alignment phase. OrthoAccel® has been shipping AcceleDent outside of the United States since 2009. AcceleDent™ began shipping to the United States in February 2012. Manufacturing of AcceleDent, which is regulated as a Class II Medical Device, is based in Austin Texas.
