HOUSTON, Nov. 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Frederick Churbuckis the first person in the United States to have completed treatment utilizing the AcceleDent™ device designed to accelerate orthodontic tooth movement. He was able to have his braces removed after just over 9 months of treatment, which is significantly less time than the 18 months predicted.
The treatment was administered by Dr. Robert Rudman, DDS, MS, of Denver, Colorado. Dr. Rudman graduated Magna Cum Laude from Marquette University School of Dentistry and has been described as among the top orthodontists in the world.
Mr. Churbuck, Market General Manager at LivingSocial in Denver, enthuses, "My teeth are beautiful and in 9 months. It feels too good to be true. I am in a place so far beyond thrilled that I never even knew existed."
He continues, "I am seriously an evangelist for AcceleDent. As they say, I'm on fire with the brand and most importantly my results."
Dr. Rudman, commented, "Orthodontic technology is rapidly evolving in many areas, but innovation geared at significantly shortening treatment times have not proven effective until now. AcceleDent™ offers the first non-invasive product to successfully and safely address our patients' desire to dramatically shorten treatment, while still maintaining the outstanding results the orthodontic specialty is known for. It is simple to integrate into a treatment plan, but most importantly it is easy and convenient for the patient. Mr. Churbuck's treatment was originally estimated to be 18 months and my team completed his treatment in about half that time. AcceleDent is a huge leap forward for Orthodontics."
AcceleDent™ is a lightweight, hands-free appliance used to speed up the rate of tooth movement while increasing patient comfort. It's used 20 minutes a day by biting gently on the mouthpiece to hold it in place. Patients are then free to engage in normal activities during the treatment. AcceleDent™ received FDA clearance in November, 2011.
