2018 Annual Session Conference

Thomas M. Graber Award of Special Merit Lecture: The Effect of Supplemental Vibration on Orthodontic Treatment with Aligners: A Randomized Trial

May 6, 2018 3:45pm ‐ May 6, 2018 4:05pm


Currently, one of the more popular methods to accelerate tooth movement is the application of vibrational forces to the dentition. The AcceleDent® device was introduced to the specialty of orthodontics to reduce treatment time. The purpose of this presentation is to answer these questions: Does the AcceleDent® device enables faster orthodontic treatment by allowing patients to change aligners every week, instead of every two weeks? Does the use of AcceleDent® result in better final alignment? Does the AcceleDent® reduce orthodontic pain and improve oral health related quality of life?

Learning Objectives:

  • Recognize the impact of supplemental vibration on ability to complete the aligner series when changed every week and the degree of alignment achieved.
  • Identify the impact of supplemental vibration on the orthodontic pain level the overall quality of life when used in conjunction with aligners.
