Accelerated Orthodontics

Figueroa Orthodontics is at the forefront of the latest orthodontic procedures, techniques, and treatments. Many advancements now give patients a straighter, healthier smile in a shorter amount of time with fewer visits to the office required.

AcceleDent Aura

The AcceleDent Aura™ System is designed to increase the rate of tooth movement and may reduce treatment time up to 50% when used with Invisalign or a conventional fixed orthodontic appliance.

The AcceleDent Aura™ System is light, comfortable, hands-free and can be used 20 minutes per day while engaged in a variety of daily activities. The appliance, used daily for 20 minutes, applies patented technology to gently vibrate the teeth and surrounding bone. In a controlled clinical trial, the vibrations have proven to accelerate tooth movement by 38%-50%.

The rate of tooth movement greatly depends on the speed at which the bone surrounding the teeth changes. Studies have shown that orthodontic force coupled with micro vibrations, generated by the AcceleDent Aura System, safely accelerate tooth movement.

AcceleDent Aura is an FDA-cleared, Class II medical device. It has been demonstrated to be safe and reliable in U.S. clinical trials.


The PROPEL System is an accelerated orthodontic treatment offered by Figueroa Orthodontics to reduce orthodontic treatment time.

    • PROPEL is used in conjunction with your regular orthodontic treatment whether it be Invisalign, metal braces, or any other appliance. The PROPEL treatment is performed at your regularly scheduled appointment and only takes minutes to complete!
    • PROPEL does NOT involve painful surgery or require you to use appliances at home.
    • PROPEL stimulates the bone in which your teeth are set, causing it to remodel faster. As the bone dynamics respond to the stimulation, teeth move faster. The result can be a reduction in the time you spend in Orthodontics by up to 60%.
    • Our process is patient-focused, creating ways for you to receive the most efficient and effective care available today in orthodontics.

OrthoPulse® – Light Accelerated Smiles

OrthoPulse® is an established device that uses low levels of light energy to stimulate the bone surrounding the roots of your teeth and facilitates tooth movement which may reduce treatment time for braces or clear aligners.

How Does OrthoPulse® work?

OrthoPulse® is a self-treatment that does not require extra chair time. It is easily performed by the patient at home in as little as 10 minutes per day. Patients are happy to achieve their goal of a great smile sooner, which benefits doctor and practice. In a controlled clinical trial, the vibrations have proven to accelerate tooth movement by 38%-50%.
