OrthoPulse®An Overview

orthopulse for braces ottawa onWhen it comes to an orthodontic treatment plan, the amount of time wearing braces, aligners or an oral appliance is the foremost concern for patients of all ages. OrthoPulse® is a revolutionary device that uses light generated energy to reduce treatment time and improve results from both traditional metal braces and advanced clear aligners.

How Does Orthopulse Work?

OrthoPulse uses low intensity near infrared light (nIR) to stimulate natural cell metabolism that boosts chemical energy in and around the teeth and supporting bone structure. This increase in energy works in tandem with the forces being applied by orthodontics to enhance the bone remodeling process that enables tooth movement. The result is a faster treatment time and reduced inflammation that often accompanies rapid changes in the position of the teeth.

Using a convenient portable handheld device, patients can easily complete daily treatments at their convenience and follow their progress with built-in Bluetooth 4.0 that transmits to an app for your smartphone.

OrthoPulse® What to Expect

OrthoPulse is a handheld device that fits easily and comfortably inside the mouth and over your braces. Patients with aligners or removable appliances will need to remove them for each treatment. Held in place for as little as 10 minutes a day, the mouthpiece delivers safe, low-level nIR light to bone tissue, enhancing the impact of your braces or aligners on tooth movement.

Dr. Barakat will demonstrate how to use the device and provide a schedule for daily treatment time. During regular orthodontic check-ups we will monitor your progress and provide updated estimates on when your treatment will end. Patients typically experience a 50-60% reduction in overall treatment time.
