HOUSTON, June 20, 2017 /CNW/ -- OrthoAccel® Technologies, Inc., the leader in accelerated orthodontics, today announced the launch of an online gallery of more than 40 case studies, assembled from 24 orthodontists that show how AcceleDent® enabled doctors to accelerate their patients' treatment times to help achieve predictable clinical outcomes. Manufactured by OrthoAccel, AcceleDent is an FDA-cleared device that employs patented SoftPulse Technology® producing pulsating forces clinically shown to stimulate cellular activity in orthodontic treatment and speed up bone remodeling. When used by patients for 20 minutes daily in conjunction with their braces or aligners, the device speeds up orthodontic treatment by as much as 50 percent while reducing discomfort.
Orthodontists providing case studies for the gallery include several provided by international lecturers and represent a wide array of malocclusions, treatment approaches and mechanics. This comprehensive gallery was created as a helpful resource for orthodontists who are interested in familiarizing themselves with SoftPulse Technology as well as those considering how to integrate AcceleDent into their practices. With the ability to easily identify cases in the gallery that have a similar set of diagnostic conditions to those that a current patient presents with, orthodontists will be able to use these cases as a guide when determining optimal treatment protocols.
"We know that there are many orthodontists who want to study real-world patient cases from peers in evaluating emerging technology such as AcceleDent," said Kathy Farley, OrthoAccel's vice president of clinical education. "The case gallery, coupled with OrthoAccel's clinical library of 15 peer-reviewed articles, including two randomized controlled trials, demonstrates AcceleDent's effectiveness in clinical applications."
Each case in the gallery provides treatment class diagnosis, estimated length of treatment without AcceleDent, orthodontic appliance used (braces or aligners) and actual length of treatment with AcceleDent. Pre-and post-treatment photographic records accompany the case information.
"Having heard from many orthodontists, we recognize how important it is that the cases show as much information as possible," added Farley. "We appreciate all of the orthodontists who shared their cases and support documentation with OrthoAccel and encourage more orthodontists to submit cases via the online submission portal."
