What is PROPEL Accelerated Orthodontics?
PROPEL Accelerated Orthodontics is a special technique that speeds up the rate of bone remodeling, which allows the teeth to move towards their new positions more quickly. It involves making small perforations in the bone around the teeth. The holes are small – no bigger than a pinhole – but they do encourage the cells around the area to start breaking down the bone, which makes tooth movement in the affected area easier. Don’t worry; the entire process is very gentle, and there’s no recovery time required.
Candidates for PROPEL Accelerated Orthodontics
Most orthodontic patients are potential candidates for PROPEL. However, some patients might have unique circumstances to consider, so we have to decide on a case-by-case basis. In general, as long as your jawbone is healthy and your permanent teeth have erupted, you could benefit from accelerated orthodontics. PROPEL is especially helpful for adult patients since their jawbone tissue is less responsive to change compared to a child’s.
PROPEL VPro+ Appliance
The Propel VPRO+ is used 5 minutes a day and its high-frequency vibrations aides the seating of the aligner on your teeth. You will get more accurate movement out of each aligner, which means fewer aligners and faster movement. With the VPRO+ you can often change aligners every 7 days for more difficult cases, or 5 days for simpler movements. This is just another example of how Buckhead Orthodontics uses technology to make your treatment easier and more enjoyable.
