The Aevo System™ facilitates faster tooth movement and decreases orthodontically induced tooth root resorption during orthodontic treatment.

EDMONTON, Alberta, Canada, June 26th, 2019 —SmileSonica Inc., global leader in non-invasive therapeutic ultrasound dental solutions, announced their new Aevo System™ (2019) has received its medical device license from Health Canada as a class II medical device. The Aevo System™ was developed to meet both patients’ and dental professionals’ main orthodontic challenge of accelerating orthodontic treatment safely. Canada joins a list of 35 countries in which the Aevo System™ is now commercially available.

“When we launched our first Aevo System™ in 2016 in Canada, we were warmly welcomed by the dental community. The practicing professionals and patients were instrumental is providing feedback that has been incorporated in our new Aevo System™ (2019). We thank our participating clinics and patients for all their support.” says Darryl Lesiuk, VP Corporate Development at SmileSonica Inc.

The Aevo System™ results from private clinics show an average increase of 54.8% in faster tooth movement when using wire braces and change of trays every 3-4 days when using clear aligners.
