OrthoPulse: A New Technology to Speed Up Orthodontic Treatment

Dr. Karen Conn of Bryn Mawr Orthodontics explains how OrthoPulse can help reduce your braces or Invisalign treatment time 

by Dr. Karen Conn, DMD, MS

If you are considering orthodontic treatment, but you are concerned about the length of time you may need to wear braces or Invisalign, you may be interested in a new technology called OrthoPulse.  OrthoPulse is a device that uses low levels of light energy to stimulate the bone surrounding the roots of your teeth.  This technology has been shown to help reduce orthodontic treatment time by up to 50%.

OrthoPulse works by using photobiomodulation (PBM) therapy.  PBM therapy is a type of light therapy that has been shown to have a number of benefits for wound healing, pain relief, and tissue regeneration.  When OrthoPulse is used in conjunction with braces or clear aligners, it can help to speed up the process of tooth movement by stimulating the bone around the roots of the teeth.

In addition to speeding up treatment time, OrthoPulse can also help to reduce pain and discomfort during orthodontic treatment.  This is because PBM therapy has been shown to help reduce inflammation and improve blood flow to the area around the teeth.

OrthoPulse is a safe and effective way to speed up orthodontic treatment.  It is FDA-cleared for use with braces and clear aligners (i.e., Invisalign) in patients of all ages.  OrthoPulse is also easy to use.  Patients simply use the device for 10 minutes twice a day.

Here are some of the potential benefits of using OrthoPulse

  • Speeds up orthodontic treatment by up to 50%.
  • Reduces pain and discomfort during orthodontic treatment.
  • Improves blood flow to the area around the teeth.
  • Reduces inflammation.
  • Safe and effective for use with braces and clear aligners.
  • Easy to use.

If you are considering orthodontic treatment, OrthoPulse may be a safe and effective way to speed up your treatment time and reduce pain and discomfort.  If you have any questions or you are considering OrthoPulse, please consult your orthodontist.
