When you undergo treatment to correct misalignment, this could require a year to two years in many cases. However, we have a unique piece of technology that could cut this time in half for some people. In today’s blog, your Fort Worth, TX, orthodontist talks about the benefits of our Propel Orthodontic system.
Treating Your Misalignment
When you correct your misalignment, you not only obtain a more attractive smile, but you also lower the risk of tooth decay, gum disease, and disorders like TMD and bruxism (teeth grinding). Treatment also helps ensure better breathing at night. To treat the issue in childhood, we could use phased orthodontics, including teeth spacers and retainers. For teens and adults, we could employ braces or clear aligners. Even with braces we can offer a cosmetic approach using tooth-colored brackets and clear bands. Each of these treatments requires moving the teeth into new positions and waiting for the bone tissues to reform around them, which takes a significant amount of time.
Cutting Treatment Times
The Propel approach allows us to limit treatment times, even cutting them in half for some patients. Using the VPro5 device, gentle vibrations will help stimulate the growth of bone around the new positions of the teeth. This allows your smile to be straightened in a shorter time frame, requiring less time in braces and aligners. The device is worn in your mouth for about five minutes a day. The device is then easy to clean and store in between uses. With reduced treatment times, you obtain an even and healthy smile much faster!
Starting Your Care Now
Do you have questions about treatments for kids, or about tooth-colored braces and clear aligners for adults and teens? If so, then give our team a call. We will talk to you about your hopes for your smile, and then take detailed images with CBCT and iTero systems. These clear digital images allow us to assess the cause and severity of your misalignment, and choose the most appropriate treatment option. The images and measurements we take can also be used to create braces, aligners, and appliances with greater precision and accuracy.
