Acceledent Aura® is new, portable, and easy way to use innovative orthodontic technology that has been proven to enhance orthodontic treatment by making it more comfortable and faster. Our commitment at Hoskinson Orthodontics is to do just that, to make your treatment effective, efficient, and as comfortable as possible. Keeping up to date and offering this new technology makes this possible. We are proud to be able to provide our patients in the Scotia, Schenectady, Glenville and Amsterdam areas with this new technology.
Acceledent Aura is a light, comfortable and hands free appliance that is used 20 minutes each day as a compliment to braces or Invisalign®. The purpose of this device is to accelerate tooth movement and therefore overall treatment with a soft mouthpiece that fits over the orthodontic appliances. The mouthpiece is attached to an Activator. Once the appliance is turned on gentle vibrations (micropulses) are felt. This SoftPulse Technology™ generates small vibrations that enhance tooth movements of your orthodontic treatment. This faster tooth movement may decrease the length of orthodontic treatment as well as reducing the discomfort associated with tooth movement from your orthodontic treatment.
As mentioned, AcceleDent has the ability to speed up treatment time as well as reduce pain throughout treatment. The product is FDA approved and has been clinically tested in United States trials. Another benefit is that patients undergoing early treatment, adolescent treatment and adult treatment can use the appliance.
If you think that you or your child might be a candidate for AcceleDent please don’t hesitate to contact our office. We are always happy to answer any questions you may have about our practice, treatments or book you an appointment. We hope to see you in our office soon!
This is a SPECIAL ALERT:
The NYS Dental Association has closely monitored all developments with the novel coronavirus (COVID-19).
As we are aware the COVID-19 situation in New York is one of the most serious in the nation. At this time it is highly recommended that dental offices only provide emergency care for our patients; and close for a minimum of 3 weeks. As a professional office we want to be responsible and slow the spread of COVID-19. We will follow this urgent recommendation- the office will be closed for patient care starting Wednesday 3/18/2020. As of now the office plans to tentatively reopen 4/13/2020. Dr. Hoskinson will be available to see emergency patients – a patient experiencing discomfort. The office will reach out to our patients and reschedule all appointments once we know an exact date for reopening.
This is an extremely fluid, unprecedented event in our country. We are being faced with many unknowns and personal challenges at this time.
Happy & Healthy Wishes to all,
