Propel is a unique FDA approved orthodontics tool for helping your teeth to move into their correct positions faster and more accurately than ever! This technology encourages accelerated bone remodeling while receiving orthodontic treatment such as Invisalign and traditional braces. Propel is used by experienced and practiced orthodontists who can provide this treatment to reduce your orthodontic treatment time by up to 50%! But how does Propel work with your orthodontic treatment and what does it offer orthodontic patients?
How Propel Works
Propel works by making micro-osteoperforations in your alveolar bone, which is a specific type of bone that supports the sockets that contain your teeth. What this means is that your orthodontist will use the Propel patented device to make tiny holes in your bone to help your teeth shift into place faster and more accurately than traditional orthodontic treatment.
When these small holes are made in your alveolar bone, it creates a cytokine response in the body, which produces inflammation. This inflammatory response makes it easier for your body to shift your teeth into position, therefore reducing your amount of orthodontic treatment time.
Faster Than Traditional Treatment
In order to correct your teeth with orthodontic treatment, your teeth must move through the alveolar bone that supports them. This process—which is essentially bone remodeling—takes time, which explains why the average time for orthodontic treatment is about 18-24 months. For years, this was the only way to move teeth and correct structural, bite, and spacing problems for teeth.
With Propel, orthodontists are now able to cut your treatment time by up to 50% simply by making micro-osteoperforations with this unique tool during your visit. These tiny holes and the inflammatory response they create allow your teeth to shift into their correct positions much faster than traditional orthodontic treatment. After the micro-osteoperforations are made, your orthodontic devices work to move your teeth. The result is very effective, fast, and efficient bone remodeling in less treatment time than traditional orthodontics!
Is Propel an Option for You?
Propel Orthodontics does require that some type of local anesthesia be used, but there is little to no pain or discomfort after the procedure and no recovery time! Your trained orthodontist is able to make the micro-osteoperforations during your visit and then you’ll enjoy a shorter treatment time with no discomfort afterwards.
