PROPEL® is relatively painless for the patient and can be performed in minutes by your orthodontist.
PROPEL® “fast tracks” orthodontic treatments for both braces and clear aligners. This technology developed in 2010, is a novel treatment that is relatively painless for the patient and can be performed in minutes by your orthodontist.
This exciting technology allows us to get most patients finished in about half the time. While each patient’s result varies, many patients can now have their orthodontic treatment completed in less than a year.
PROPEL® works with the patient’s own biology to stimulate the bone surrounding the teeth; helping the teeth to move faster and more predictably into their ideal position so we can reveal your new smile faster and in fewer visits to our office.
We provide PROPEL for Invisalign and braces, offering complimentary consultations to all. If you would like to accelerate your orthodontic treatment today, ask us about PROPEL!
The future of orthodontics is already here
We firmly believe that the next frontier in orthodontics is controlling the biology responsible for tooth movement. The bone structure surrounding your teeth is constantly changing and is very responsive to light forces. Our practice uses advanced orthodontic techniques to apply precise yet gentle forces that can dramatically accelerate your treatment time. This innovative approach can also release stubborn tooth movements and produce more predictable results. Currently, we offer two different accelerated treatment options: Propel Orthodontics and AcceleDent.
Propel Orthodontics reduces treatment time by enhancing bone movement
Often described as “dental acupuncture,” Propel uses micro-perforations to stimulate the bone around specific teeth. This creates an inflammatory response that softens the bone and allows the teeth to move faster. It’s a simple in-office treatment that only takes a few minutes to perform. Once we have performed an evaluation and you have rinsed your mouth with an antiseptic mouthwash, we will apply a local anesthetic before treating you with the micro-perforations. With Propel, we are able to accelerate your tooth movements efficiently, with more predictability, and cut treatment time by 30 percent or more.
