OrthoAccel Receives FDA Clearance for New Device
OrthoAccel Technologies has received FDA clearance for AcceleDent Optima, the
company's newest accelerated treatment device.
AcceleDent Optima directly connects patients and practices with usage monitoring,
direct messaging and virtual rewards via the AcceleDent app, which can be downloaded
via iTunes and Google Play.
The product is the third generation of vibratory-accelerated orthodontic devices
commercially available from OrthoAccel within the past six years. Optima is a smaller,
lightweight, waterproof device that can connect with smartphones and tablets through
Bluetooth. The device's charging case enables patients to wirelessly charge the activator,
which has a five-to-seven-day battery life.
Like its predecessors, Optima is powered by patented SoftPulse technology, producing
pulsating forces clinically shown to stimulate cellular activity in orthodontic treatment
and demonstrated to speed up bone remodeling. The prescription-only device speeds up
treatment with braces or aligners by as much as 50 percent while reducing discomfort.
In addition to receiving FDA clearance, AcceleDent Optima has also been cleared by
Health Canada and received the CE Mark making it commercially available in Europe.

sessions, scheduled throughout the next two years, will all be three-day courses that begin on a
Saturday and end on a Monday.
