Many patients who are considering orthodontics, though excited about the results, are less excited when it comes to the treatment time. Perhaps you have a big event in the near future where you want to look your best: high school reunions, weddings and more. Maybe you just want to get the treatment over with as soon as possible. We understand. One option our team might consider in these circumstances is Propel accelerated orthodontics.
At Trü Orthodontics, we use Propel technology to speed up your treatment. Using Propel orthodontics, we can move your teeth into their proper positions as quickly and comfortably as possible, combining devices and procedures to give you the best possible results for your smile.
Propel orthodontics works by stimulating bone remodeling, which accelerates bone production to move your teeth more quickly and predictably. This treatment is minimally invasive and has been known to increase tooth movement by up to 50%.
When you receive Propel, our orthodontists will create microscopic perforations in your jawbone. These perforations stimulate the bone to produce the effect that allows your teeth to move more quickly. We will provide you with a local anesthetic during the procedure, and you may return to your normal activities when you leave our office. The treatment only takes a few minutes to complete, and most patients experience little or no discomfort. If you do experience any discomfort following your Propel treatment, you can reduce it using mild pain relievers or topical gels.
