Could Propel® Limit Treatment Times?

fort worth propelWhen you wear braces or even aligners, this means a major time commitment. Correcting your smile is worth this time commitment, as you obtain an even and healthy smile. But what if your Fort Worth, TX, orthodontist could use Propel® Accelerated Orthodontics to lower treatment times by as much as 50%?

Why Correcting Smiles Takes Time

Why does correcting your uneven smile take so much time? Well, as the teeth shift the jawbone and gums need to reform around the new positions of the teeth, keeping them in place and allowing the smile corrections to remain in place. This takes a significant amount of time, and as a result, your braces could require about two years on average, and even Invisalign® may require a year to 18 months on average. While this is a major time commitment, remember that correcting uneven teeth not only offers a more attractive smile, but improves oral health and function as well.

Limit Time with Propel® Accelerated Orthodontics

How do we lower these overall treatment times? Well, we would use the Propel® Accelerated Orthodontics system. With the Propel® VPRO5. We provide a small hand-held device that you take home with you and use. The device is worn in the mouth for about five minutes a day, and will emit gentle vibrations to stimulate the growth of jawbone structure. As they reform around the new positions of the teeth quicker, this cuts down on the treatment time. The device itself is easy to clean and store, and simple to use.
