Today, an increasing number of adults are seeking orthodontic treatment to enhance the social, psychological and functional status of their lives. However, an adult patient’s number one concern before starting orthodontic treatment is how long will it take.
Thanks to the new, state-of-the-art PROPEL® System patients can now confidently achieve their orthodontic goals including a straighter, more amazing smile and better functioning bite in half the time.
So what is the PROPEL® System? It is an innovative, medical grade, FDA approved device that under the guidance of a certified Orthodontist, performs micro-perforations in the bone surrounding the teeth. By working with the patient’s own biology and stimulating the bone surrounding the teeth, the cells that are involved in tooth movement allow for teeth to do what is prescribed by the orthodontists much more quickly and efficiently.
The procedure simply involves making the area comfortable with topical anesthetic, then using PROPEL to make micro-changes to the bone in the area of the movement. The procedure is non-surgical with little to no discomfort and takes no more than five-minutes. Results will show 50- 60% faster movement than traditional orthodontics alone. It can be completed chair-side in minutes.
PROPEL® is safe and effective and can be used in combination with current orthodontic systems including Invisalign® and traditional braces. The patient will be pleased to finish their treatment with exceptional results in less time and with fewer treatment visits.
