Science behind OrthoPulse®

Over 50% of the light we receive from the sun is in the near infrared (nIR) spectrum; we cannot see it, but we can feel it as warmth on our skin. The nIR light encourages cell metabolism and creates an increase in chemical energy that can be used by the body to heal, regenerate and reduce inflammation and pain.

OrthoPulse® uses this same natural light (low intensity nIR), to gently deliver energy to the bone and tissues around the tooth roots. That energy then helps to remodel the surrounding bone and facilitate tooth movement.

Science behind Orthopulse®

The energy contained in the Orthpulse® light is absorbed by mitochondrial enzymes in the cells and converted to chemical energy (ATP).

The increased ATP energy now becomes available to facilitate tooth movement.
