OrthoPulse®An Overview

Are you looking to correct your crooked teeth in a short time? Worried about looking weird with metal braces as an adult?

When 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. What if you can reduce your treatment time just by shining a light on your teeth for a couple of minutes a day?

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. Yes, it’s that easy! Dr. Barakat and his dental team can reduce the amount of time you need to wear braces or Invisalign.

OrthoPulse® is the first device of its kind cleared by the US FDA for use with both braces or clear aligners. –

How Does OrthoPulse Work?

OrthoPulse uses low-intensity, near-infrared light (nIR) to stimulate natural cell metabolism. This process boosts chemical energy in and around your teeth and supporting bone structure. This increase in energy works in tandem with the forces being applied by orthodontics.

OrthoPulse will 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 your teeth. It will accelerate results while wearing braces.

Using a convenient portable handheld device, patients can easily complete daily treatments at their convenience. You can even follow your progress with the mobile app! The OrthoPulse device has built-in Bluetooth to transmit usage data to the smartphone application.

OrthoPulse® What to Expect

OrthoPulse is a handheld device that fits easily and comfortably inside of your 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.

The impact of your braces or aligners on your teeth is greatly enhanced. This will reduce the time you need to wear braces!

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. Results may vary.
