If you need orthodontic correction, you could benefit from a newer orthodontic technology called Propel®. There are several different options available to correct a crooked smile, and each treatment option comes with its own set of advantages and disadvantages. The greatest benefit that Propel has to offer is speed. This technology can straighten your teeth in almost half the time.
What is Propel®?
This can be thought of as an add-on system, and it can be used with braces. Since the inception of orthodontic devices, moving teeth has been regarded as a slow process. Put simply, you’d have to wait a long time to get your teeth straightened.
Propel® is used to stimulate the process that is used to move teeth, which results in faster straightening. The procedure is very simple and can be performed as you sit in the dental chair.
How It Works
During the procedure, a small device is used to dimple the portions of bone that surround your teeth. The procedure takes only a few minutes and produces no side effects.
Unlike surgery, there are no risks associated with Propel®, and it’s capable of speeding up your orthodontic treatment. By increasing the flow of blood to the areas, it makes the bone more pliable.
The procedure makes your teeth much easier to shift to the desired position. For maximum compatibility, Propel® has been designed for use with ceramic braces, wire braces and Invisalign®.
How You Can Benefit
If you’re considering Propel® but haven’t made a decision, you should understand how you can benefit from the procedure. A major benefit is faster treatment.
According to some of the latest studies, Propel® can reduce the amount of time needed to straighten your teeth by 50 percent. If your orthodontic treatment was scheduled to last for one year, then this technology might be able to reduce your treatment time by six months.
It can also heal tissues faster and help to stimulate alveolar bone development. If you’re looking for a safe, effective way to enhance your orthodontic treatment, consider getting treated with Propel®.
