When we talk to patients in Fort Worth, TX, about correcting misalignment, many assume treatment will take a significant amount of time. While numerous factors impact the length of time treatment takes, we offer orthodontic options to help correct smiles in a much shorter time frame. What should our patients expect from Propel® orthodontic systems?
We offer a number of different orthodontic treatments, such as teeth spacers, retainers, clear aligners, metal braces, and more. These are all designed to help improve a patient’s dental alignment and balance their bite, offering a healthier and more attractive smile. In order to accomplish this, we must reposition the teeth, which shifts and alters your jawbone and gum tissue. For some, advanced misalignment means round two years of treatment to shift the teeth and adjust the position and formation of the jawbone and gum tissue. However, we also offer a number of advanced technologies to helps streamline the process, such as iTero® scanning technology and Propel® Accelerated Orthodontics. With Propel®, we help stimulate the growth of jawbone tissue around your shifting teeth, which enables a much faster treatment time.
One of the technologies we provide as part of the Propel® system is the VPro5. This unique and innovative piece of technology employs gentle vibrations to help stimulate jawbone growth and provide a more successful (and faster) orthodontic treatment. When we prescribe the device for our patients, they bring it home and use it for approximately five minutes each day. The device itself is very easy to use, clean, and store, taking up very little room. If you have any question about the device, or about what we can do to hasten your treatment and help you achieve a more even smile, then don’t hesitate to give our office a call today.
Why Should You Consider Orthodontics?
If you have crooked or crowded teeth, why should consider orthodontic treatment? Even if you’re already an adult, we suggest seeing the orthodontist about your misalignment, as poor alignment has been linked to jaw joint strain (and the onset of TMJ disorder and bruxism) and even a greater risk of tooth decay and gum disease. Correcting the issue ensures a healthier and more comfortable smile, while also improving the smile’s appearance. We offer a number of possible treatment options, including Invisalign® clear aligners. If you want to learn more, call us to schedule a consultation today.
