AcceleDent™ Accelerated Orthodontics in Panama City Beach and Destin
With AcceleDent™, our Panama City Beach and Destin orthodontic patients are able to reduce their braces treatment time by up to 50 percent. AcceleDent™ is a small device that patients hold between their teeth for 20 minutes a day during their orthodontic treatment with Dr. Runnels. The device helps stimulate bone remodeling and contributes to the force applied to the teeth by braces to increase the rate of tooth movement and shorten orthodontic treatment time.

What is AcceleDent™?
AcceleDent™ is a lightweight, hands-free device that orthodontic patients can use to speed up their orthodontic treatment time. To use AcceleDent™, patients simply activate the device and place it between their upper and lower teeth, biting down just enough to keep the device in place. The device emits micro-vibrations that help stimulate the movement of the patient’s teeth, and clinical trials have shown that AcceleDent™ can increase tooth movement by between 38 and 50 percent when a patient uses it for just 20 minutes a day. AcceleDent™ is suitable for both adult orthodontics patients as well as kids, and Dr. Runnels’ patients who have used AcceleDent™ report that the device is comfortable and easy to use.
