Doctors around the world have been using OrthoPulse with their patients to accelerate orthodontic treatment times in a safe and convenient way. OrthoPulse is an established device that uses low levels of light energy to stimulate the bone surrounding the roots of your teeth and facilitate tooth movement. This could reduce treatment time for braces or clear aligners, and OrthoPulse is the first device of its kind cleared by the FDA for use with both braces or clear aligners.
