Propel® technology reduces the length of your orthodontic treatment by using innovative devices and procedures that are designed to shift your teeth into their correct positions as quickly and comfortably as possible. The state-of-the-art devices used in your treatment stimulate bone remodeling, helping your teeth move quicker and more predictably into their proper positions. Propel is used frequently in combination with standard orthodontic treatments, such as braces or Invisalign®, to increase the speed of tooth movement by up to 50%.
Propel is comfortable and minimally invasive. When you receive this treatment, our dentists will create microscopic alveolar perforations that aid in accelerating and stimulating bone production, and in making your orthodontic treatment more efficient. While you may need a local anesthetic during your treatment, discomfort is minimal and can be easily minimized with mild pain relievers or topical gels. In fact, many patients who receive Propel treatments experience little or no pain. Treatment is performed in our office in just a few minutes and requires no recovery time, allowing you to return to your daily schedule immediately.
If you have any questions about Propel orthodontics or would like to schedule your consultation with our talented dentists, please call our office today. We look forward to helping you achieve a straighter smile!
