The duration of an orthodontic treatment is determined by the body’s natural ability to remodel alveolar bone when orthodontic forces are applied. The challenge faced is to reduce treatment time while creating a long-term stable oral health environment using non-invasive, easy-to-use solutions. This challenge is increased by the desire to reduce patient discomfort and/or risk of root and bone afflictions.
These challenges led to the creation of the Aevo System™, the most advanced low-intensity pulsed ultrasound (LIPUS) therapy system in the world. The system provides LIPUS to the desired patient’s dental area—the osteoblast and osteoclast cells of the alveolar bone surrounding the tooth root—which is critical for successful and stable orthodontic treatment. The Aevo System is battery powered, portable, and intended for patients to use at home or on-the-go. The system is a complement to orthodontic braces or clear aligners and only impacts tooth movement when orthodontic forces are applied.
The Aevo System™ indication for use is that the system enhances the physiological processes associated with orthodontic treatment. Regular use of the Aevo System™ during orthodontic treatment will facilitate faster tooth movement and decrease orthodontically induced tooth root resorption, thus giving you the capability of Speed, Safety, and Stability.
The Aevo System™
LIPUS has been used successfully for over 30 years to accelerate the repair of long bone fracture repair. This proven history, along with the known orthodontic challenge, inspired the development of the Aevo System™, a home-use orthodontic therapy.
Using LIPUS to enhance the biology of tooth movement and accelerate orthodontic treatment is a unique approach that deserves a unique name: OrthoSonic™ treatment.
Aevo System™ Benefits
The Aevo System™ is a painless, non-invasive, and patient-friendly system that accelerates alveolar bone remodelling, shortening the duration of orthodontic treatment safety with a predictable and stable outcome. As a result, doctors have and you can expect to obtain significant treatment efficiency improvements, more time for new patients, and additional revenue by adopting the Aevo System™.
Shorter patient treatment time
The Aevo System™ uses proven LIPUS technology to deliver consistent treatment to the target zone, ensure acceleration of the bone remodelling process, and shorten the patient’s treatment time as a result.
Successful and stable orthodontic treatment results
The system provides doctors the ability to apply LIPUS to the desired patient’s dental area—the osteoblast and osteoclast cells within the alveolar bone surrounding the tooth root—which is critical for successful and stable long-term orthodontic treatment results.
Safe long-term results
A common concern among practitioners of acceleration is safety. LIPUS technology is a successfully proven approach for bone remodelling at the cellular level due to its direct signal pathway. Regular use of the Aevo System™ during orthodontic treatment will facilitate faster tooth movement and decrease orthodontically induced tooth root resorption.
Mechanism of Action
The orthodontic force applied by wire braces or clear aligners is complemented by the Aevo System™. The system’s LIPUS technology applies ultrasound waves to the desired bone remodelling treatment site at the gum level: the cementum, periodontal ligament, and alveolar bone engagement area.
LIPUS stimulates bone remodelling, which accelerates orthodontic treatment due to LIPUS having a direct signal pathway at the cellular level of the alveolar bone remodelling: both osteoclast (bone resorption) and osteoblast (bone formation) cells.
The patented Aevo System™ is the most advanced LIPUS therapy system in the world. The Aevo System™ consists of our LIPUS intra-oral system, inductive charging and storage case, web-based clinic software, patient app, and oral ultrasound gel.
This safe, easy-to-use system is battery powered to allow for greater portability. Patients can use it at home or on the go and apply LIPUS simultaneously to both arches.
Aevo System™ Usage
The Aevo System™ is designed with an intra-oral LIPUS therapy appliance that complements both wire braces and clear aligners. Accompanied by a biocompatible intra-oral ultrasound gel, the Aevo System™ optimizes LIPUS delivery to the desired therapeutic site: the alveolar bone surrounding the targeted tooth roots.
The Aevo System™ is intuitive, safe, and easy to use. This self-contained, portable system is used by a single patient. Our web-based clinic software allows your clinic to set up the desired LIPUS therapy during the patient’s initial visit and in real time monitor the patient’s compliance throughout their orthodontic treatment.
The patient downloads the Aevo System™ App and follows the setup instructions. Then the patient applies the LIPUS treatment at home or on-to-go by placing the intra-oral appliance in their mouth for one 20-minute session each day. The system generates and monitors the LIPUS dosage, indicates treatment status, and records treatment compliance. For best results, the Aevo System™ should be used daily for the full length of the patient’s orthodontic treatment.
