What can I do to make my orthodontic treatment take longer? Said no patient ever. When patients are embarking on a complex and lengthy orthodontic treatment plan, it’s no surprise that they want to do everything they can to make the process go more quickly. Thanks to the innovative Propel accelerated orthodontic system, your dentist can now speed up the orthodontic process for those patients who choose traditional bracket and wire braces or Invisalign and other alignment tray systems. In this post, we’ll discuss how the Propel accelerated orthodontic system and tools can help you achieve the flawless, healthy smile of your dreams more quickly.
How Does it Work?
Propel is not just one tool. It’s actually an entire system of treatments that help patients complete their orthodontic treatment plans more quickly. There are two main pieces the “Excellerator” tool and the VPro5 aligner seating device. When used in conjunction, these two tools can significantly decrease the overall treatment time. The Excellerator tool creates micro perforations in the supportive tooth structures, loosening the connection between teeth and their surrounding gum and bone tissue. This allows the tooth to move more quickly, and as the supportive tissues heal, they reset in their new position.
What is the Benefit of VPro5 with Invisalign?
The VPro5 tool is used at home to help patients properly place their Invisalign trays. When aligners are not correctly positioned, they cannot place pressure appropriately to move teeth into alignment according to plan. The VPro5 device perfectly seats the alignment trays, and it captures diagnostic information that we can use to ensure the best possible results throughout the course of orthodontic treatment. The VPro5 device is only worn for about five minutes at a time right before patients go to sleep for the night, and it allows them to achieve perfect seating of their aligners as they sleep, keeping their aligners in the proper position during this lengthy wear time.
