When you have misalignment and want to obtain a more even and healthy smile, you need orthodontics. While there are a number of different treatment options, the one thing they have in common is the serious time commitment treatment takes. But your Fort Worth, TX, orthodontist can help shorten time with Propel® Accelerated Orthodontics.
Why Does Smile Correction Take So Long?
As the teeth are shifted by the orthodontics, the jawbone needs to reform around the new positions of the teeth. This takes a major time commitment to complete, often two years. Which is why no matter what orthodontic treatment you undergo, this could take years to finish. However, we could use advanced technology to help reduce the treatment time, often by as much as 50% in some cases!
The Propel® System
With the Propel® system, our team will send you home with a small device that is simple to use, clean, and store. Each day, you will wear the device for about 5 minutes. The machine will emit gentle vibrations that are designed to encourage the growth of bone tissue around the tooth roots. This helps cut down on how long you need to wear braces, use aligners, or wear a retainer or teeth spacer.
Ready for a Straighter Smile?
Have you or a member of your family become interested in correcting misalignment? With a straighter smile comes not only improved esthetics, but a lowered risk of everything from cavities and gum disease to TMJ disorder and bruxism (teeth grinding). We can start care as young as age seven, using phased options like retainers and teeth spaces to guide the growth of the smile. For teens and adults, we can straighten smiles with braces, often using ceramic brackets to make them less visible. Our team could also use clear Invisalign® aligners to shift the teeth, as these are practically invisible and can offer results in about a year. These can also be removed before you eat or prior to brushing and flossing your teeth!
If you have any questions about how to improve the alignment of your smile, or about the technology we can use to reduce treatment times, then contact our team to learn more. We look forward to helping you and your family improve your smiles and bite balance with custom orthodontic treatment.
