Propel® technology reduces the length of your orthodontic treatment by using innovative devices and procedures 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 to move more quickly 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 orthodontist will create microscopic perforations, which will aid in accelerating and stimulating bone production and make 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. Propel is performed in office in just a few minutes and requires zero recovery time, allowing you to return to your daily schedule immediately.
If you have any questions about Propel orthodontics, and would like to schedule your consultation with our talented orthodontist, please call our office today. We look forward to helping you achieve a straighter smile!
