A Less Expensive Alternative to Acceledent: BitePod20

#1 Post by bbsadmin » Thu Dec 22, 2016 1:25 pm

There is an inexpensive alternative to Acceledent. It is called BitePod20. It costs $189 and is sold at DentaKit.com. It does not "expire" after a period of time, and takes a household 9 volt battery. You can buy replacement mouthpieces for it so that other members of your household can use it, or you can sell it when you're done with it. You can find the product here: http://www.dentakit.com/bitepod20.html You can get free shipping on this item with coupon code FreeShip69. Also, it is on sale for $179 until the end of this month, so you'll save $10 in addition to getting free shipping (to the US).

BitePod20 delivers the same low frequency vibration as Acceledent. The only real difference is that it doesn't officially claim to speed up treatment time.

How much would it be to ship this product to the UK?

That depends on the shipping method you use. Shipping internationally can get quite expensive. DentaKit uses the US Postal Service, which has the lowest rates of all the carriers, and still it can be quite expensive. And there might be Customs fees when you receive it. If you start an order and then fill in your shipping information, choose your shipping method (Priority International or Express International), and hit Apply, you will see the shipping cost.

Does it work as well as Acceledent? I've heard it doesn't work quite as well but would love more information so I can recommend it over Acceledent in the future (Acceledent was expensive as heck).

I alway felt that if there's no pain, there's no gain. So every time I had new wires, etc at my ortho appt, I would purposely eat on the side that hurt more. I truly think that helps to fasten the process of straightening teeth. I thought I would share that to help others who may not be able to get the devices that will help quicken the process.

adding to this thread in hopes someone who has used the product can pass on any feedback and also if there are links to trials/tests that show its effectiveness. would love to get something to help speed up treatment as acceledent is expensive and you have to go to a ortho who is authorized to get it and mine is not.
