Pic 2Biolux Research, Vancouver, Canada, will exhibit for the first time at the 2015 Annual Session of the American Association of Orthodontists (AAO), held from May 15 to 19 at San Francisco’s Moscone Center.

The company will showcase OrthoPulse, which utilizes low-level light therapy, or photobiomodulation, to stimulate the periodontium and alveolar bone surrounding the roots of the teeth. The treatment is designed to increase tooth movement and reduce treatment time, as well as enable patients to experience less discomfort.

For use in conjunction with either braces or clear aligners, OrthoPulse is a one-size-fits-all, soft silicone mouth guard that patients can use anywhere for 10 minutes per day. In addition, OrthoPulse syncs with an iOS app, allowing both the patient and doctor to monitor and track orthodontic treatment progress at any time.

OrthoPulse is a Class II medical device that has received regulatory approvals in the European Union, Canada, New Zealand, and Australia. While the device is not currently available in the United States, the 510(k) submission is currently under review by the FDA.
