    Abstract: Described is a bioelectric stimulating device for reducing orthodontic treatment time (braces or aligners) with post-treatment stability enhancement. The device and associated methods provide a native sustainable optimal upregulated expression and/or release of an increase in the quantity of the right cells and proteins over time and in the right sequence to optimize tooth movement with the braces or aligners by accelerating bone resorption at the leading edge of the tooth during movement. This acceleration phenomenon is responsible for being able to shorten orthodontic treatment time. Following the final alignment of the teeth, the same device can utilize the native response and accelerate the tooth/bone interface stability by targeting specific cells and proteins that are responsible for bone deposition (hardening) in order to shorten the retention phase, while greatly decreasing the chance of relapse (instability).
