A popular question that patients always ask me is “Can we speed up orthodontic treatment?” The answer is “Yes! It is possible!” What we have observed is that the patients that have teeth extracted for orthodontic treatment have rapid teeth movement in the area near the extraction site for up to six months. During healing, the body brings in cells that not only heals the extraction site, but also allows teeth to move through bone more quickly. We can simulate this same effect with PROPEL technology to help teeth move more quickly.
Propel can be used with both Invisalign and traditional braces to help teeth move into their final positions up to 50% faster. Propel is technology that will allow the doctor to create micro osteo-perforations to accelerate the stimulation of bone production in the upper and lower jaw. Propel can speed up tooth movement and it's so minimally invasive, it allows the patient to return to their normal daily routine immediately.
Straight teeth with Invisalign or braces are not just for children or teenagers anymore. More and more adults are also choosing orthodontic treatment to achieve a beautiful smile. Now it's possible to straighten teeth in less time. Contact us if straight teeth in less time is something you might be interested in. We can help with Propel!
