Braces and aligners help straighten teeth and correct jaw alignment problems, but it takes time to get the results you want. This means having to come in for several appointments until your treatment is done. With OrthoPulse, you can shorten the amount of time you’ll need to wear an orthodontic appliance overall. Learn more about what OrthoPulse is and how it works.
What Is OrthoPulse?
OrthoPulse is a device that you can use at home to speed up orthodontic treatment. This device has been cleared by the FDA for orthodontic use with aligners and braces. Your orthodontist can provide you with this device to use at home for roughly ten minutes a day. The amount of time you’ll need to use it overall will depend on different factors, such as how crooked your teeth are or how severe your jaw alignment problem is.
What Are the Benefits of OrthoPulse?
When you use OrthoPulse while wearing aligners or braces, you’ll end up needing orthodontic treatment for a shorter amount of time. This device also helps reduce the number of appointments you need to come in for, and you won’t have to deal with discomfort you might experience when you wear braces or aligners on a long-term basis. With OrthoPulse, you’ll also be able to return to your normal diet sooner instead of having to avoid certain foods when you have braces or aligners on.
How Does OrthoPulse Work?
OrthoPulse uses low amounts of heat and light to stimulate bone and cell growth around your tooth roots. This helps correct jaw problems and straighten teeth in a shorter timeframe. OrthoPulse is considered safe to use since it does not produce high or unsafe amounts of heat or light. Your orthodontist can let you know if this device is suitable for you to use if you wear aligners or braces. If you will be using OrthoPulse, your dentist will provide you with instructions on how to use it at home.
