What is AcceleDent?

Developed by OrthoAccel Technologies, Inc., Leader in Accelerated Orthodontics, AcceleDent Aura is a simple-to-use, hands-free device designed for faster orthodontic treatment with only 20 minutes daily use.

AcceleDent Aura is approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA). It has been prescribed to thousands of patients worldwide, since its introduction in 2009. It is available only by prescription from your orthodontist.
  • It's Fast: Clinically proven to move teeth up to 50% faster in a U.S. clinical trial.
  • It's Safe: Cleared by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and available only by prescription from your orthodontist.
  • It's Gentle: AcceleDent patients have reported reduced discomfort with their orthodontics.

How AcceleDent Works

By inserting the mouthpiece fitted around your existing orthodontics and wearing the activator for 20 minutes everyday, AcceleDent Aura can speed up tooth movement through the use of SoftPulse Technology. Faster tooth movement may decrease the duration of your orthodontic treatment and may help to make your orthodontics more comfortable.

AcceleDent Aura Speeds Orthodontic Treatment

  • Exclusive SoftPulse Technology applied precisely calibrated micropulses to gently accelerate the movement of your teeth as they are guided by your orthodontics.
  • Safe acceleration of the bone remodeling process complements conventional orthodontic treatment.
  • Clinically proven to move teeth up to 50% faster.

What is SoftPulse Technology and why is it important?

Part of the way that orthodontics works is by changing or remodeling the bones surrounding your teeth. As this remodeling process is accelerated, your teeth move more quickly. That's where AcceleDent comes in. By using tiny vibrations, or micropulses, SoftPulse Technology is designed to speed up bone remodeling, accelerating tooth movement.

AcceleDent Aura Helps Make Orthodontics More Comfortable

  • SoftPulse Technology micropulses are gentle and exert up to 8x less force than a power toothbrush.
  • These micropulses can also help make your orthodontic treatment more comfortable.

AcceleDent Aura Components

Common Problems


The heart of AcceleDent Aura, the small, lightweight Activator generates gentle micropulses to accelerate bone remodeling. It includes a USB interface, which can be plugged directly into a computer to view patient usage history via the FastTrac Report. The rechargeable battery in AcceleDent Aura is a medical grade lithium ion battery.

Common Problems


Provides a comfortable fit and snaps easily on and off the Activator for transport and cleaning. 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.

Common Problems

USB extension cable with power adapter

Allows for easy, convenient charging. Do not wear your AcceleDent Aura when it is charging or connected to a computer. The Activator should be recharged every three days.

Common Problems

Travel Case

Keeps the components safe, clean and secure.

AcceleDent Patient Aura Use and Care

It is recommended that you use your AcceleDent Aura for a continuous 20 minute period each day. If the 20 minute session is interrupted for a few minutes, when turned back on, AcceleDent Aura will remember how long you used it as long as the interruption does not exceed five minutes. After five minutes of being turned off, AcceleDent Aura will work for a full session of 20 minutes at its next use. Additional daily use greater than the prescribed 20 minutes duration is not recommended.

It is not recommended that AcceleDent Aura be used while sleeping or in the shower.

The best way to clean AcceleDent Aura is the Mouthpiece should first be disconnected from the Activator and then rinsed well with lukewarm water after each use. You may occasionally use a soft liquid dishwashing detergent, a mild soap, or toothpaste to gently brush the Mouthpiece. The Activator can be wiped with a soft cloth as necessary. It is recommended that you allow AcceleDent Aura to air dry before being stored in the Travel Case.

Do not place the Mouthpiece or the Activator in a dishwasher as this will void the warranty and could cause damage to the product.
