Acceledent offered by MCO Stouffville Orthodontics!

YES! We offer Acceledent in Markham and Stouffville! Some of our patients coming into the office have already heard about the product, however most have not. Let me give you a little break down :)

What it is: A simple-to-use, hands-free device designed for faster orthodontic treatment with only 20 minutes daily use. 
Acceledent Activator and Mouthpiece
How it works: 
Through the use of gentle micropulses, called SoftPulse Technology , bone remodeling is accelerated, allowing teeth to move 30-50% faster. Meaning your 2 year treatment can be brought down to 1 year (usually 30-50% faster)!

Because this product speeds up the movement of the teeth, the usual 2 month interval between regular appointments gets cut down to 4 weeks for braces. If you are in Invisalign, we will normally deliver more aligners.

At MCO Orthodontics, we like to always keep up to date with all the new technologies. That is why as soon as it was approved by Health Canada, Dr. Tam was one of the first Orthodontists to offer this product! Unfortunately, I was already half way into my treatment, so I am not using Acceledent. However I would recommend it to everyone who would like their orthodontic treatment completed faster!!!
