AcceleDent® Aura Works with Braces to Speed Up Orthodontic Treatment
You may not mind wearing braces, but you probably like the idea of achieving a beautiful smile faster. AcceleDent® Aura helps speed up tooth movement by up to 50 percent! This advanced supplemental device uses SoftPulse Technology™ to deliver specifically calibrated micropulses to enhance tooth movement. Approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration, AcceleDent® has been proven safe and effective, and it is available by prescription only. Dr. L. Douglas Knight uses AcceleDent® Aura in our Louisville, KY and Radcliff, KY offices. We stay up to date with the latest technology at Knight Orthodontics, so we can provide our patients with the most accurate and efficient orthodontic treatment.
How Does AcceleDent® Aura Work?
With SoftPulse Technology™, micropulses accelerate the movement of teeth undergoing orthodontic treatment. These micropulses are so gentle they exert up to eight times less force than an electric toothbrush. With consistent daily use, you can achieve reliable results. Each session lasts 20 minutes and tracks progress, so you and Dr. Knight can evaluate your ongoing success. AcceleDent® Aura has been declared safe in clinical trials, and has been used by thousands of patients worldwide since its launch in 2009.

AcceleDent® Aura offers the latest technology to help you achieve your smile even quicker. Here is a brief guide explaining how to get the most out of your new device.
- Charge the battery: Your AcceleDent® Aura will need approximately two hours to charge. The LED indicator on the activator will tell you if the battery is running low.
- Insert the mouthpiece into activator: Once the battery is charged, you can insert the clear mouthpiece into the activator.
- Use for 20 minutes: Position the mouthpiece as directed, and press the start button. Your AcceleDent® Aura will run on an automatic timer for 20 minutes. You will notice a short pulsation at the ten-minute interval, letting you know your session is halfway complete.
- Clean your AcceleDent® Aura: Once your session is complete, simply disconnect the mouthpiece from the activator. Clean the mouthpiece by running it under warm water. Wipe the activator clean with a soft microfiber cloth.
- Track your progress: One of the most impressive features of the AcceleDent® Aura is the Fast Track Report, which you can access via USB. Simply plug your activator into your computer to download the software, which is both Mac and PC compatible. Bring your AcceleDent® Aura to each visit so Dr. Knight can evaluate your progress.
