Objectives: The aim of this study was to investigate the effectiveness of an orthodontic tooth movement acceleration device (AcceleDent, OrthoAccel Technologies, Houston, Texas) when used during an aligner treatment. Materials and Methods: Adult patients who began an aligner treatment (Lineo, Micerium Lab, Avegno, Italy) were allocated to two treatment groups. The first one (Group A), with a 7-day aligner change regimen, used the AcceleDent device for 20 min per day, whereas the second one (Group B) changed the aligners every 14 days and did not use any device. The registered outcomes were the possibility of completing the treatment, the number of aligners needed and treatment duration in the two groups. Moreover, we assessed patients’ perception of pain during the first week of treatment. Results: Twenty-four patients were allocated to Group A or B depending on the acceptance of AcceleDent use. Patients which used AcceleDent (Group A) completed the treatment using each aligner for fewer days than those belonging to Group B (9.0 ± 1.0 and 15.4 ± 1.2 days, respectively) (P < 0.001). As a secondary outcome, a significant difference was found in pain perception during the first week of treatment between the two groups (P < 0.05). Conclusions: This controlled clinical trial shows that is possible to apply a 7-day change regimen together with AcceleDent use and successfully complete an aligner treatment with a significant saving of time when compared to a standard 14-days change regimen. Finally, the use of this device allowed reduction in pain perception during the orthodontic treatment
