Straightening teeth can be such a hassle. Wearing traditional braces can be such a difficult experience that they may just make you avoid orthodontics altogether. However, there is an alternative out there you’ll want to consider.

Invisalign makes the process of straightening teeth and fixing uneven bites easier, faster and without metal hardware. But what can you do to make treatment even faster? With the help of Propel Orthodontics of course! With these revolutionary orthodontic enhancers, you can cut the amount of time necessary to undergo orthodontic treatment, even more so compared to what Invisalign promotes!

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a cosmetic treatment designed to help individuals shift teeth without the use of metal brackets or wires. If the dentist determines you’re eligible for Invisalign, they’ll begin by taking impressions of your smile, sending those molds to an offsite Invisalign lab, and from these molds create a series of aligners. Each pair is designed to represent a different stage of your treatment. After wearing each pair in the set for a specific period of time, your teeth, whether crooked, crowded or misaligned, will be looking straighter than ever!

Invisalign takes about 6 to 12 months to complete on average, but enhancements from Propel can reduce that treatment time even further.

What is Propel Orthodontics?

Propel Orthodontics is a system that uses specific devices to reduce the time needed for Invisalign’s completion. Unfortunately, improper or loose-fitting aligners can delay treatment time and even require people to go back a pair of aligners just to get back on track. With the VPro5 device, you can remove this issue from your Invisalign treatment entirely. After wearing your aligners, simply bite down on the Propel device while it vibrates. After biting down for about five minutes, you’ll be able to confirm that your aligners are fully fitted and achieving maximum efficiency!

Of course, Propel also includes devices like The Excellerator. This device is designed to create manual osteoperforations, also known as dental dimples, to dramatically decrease the length of treatment time. By temporarily weakening your jawbone in this way, bones are much more capable of shifting. Don’t worry, your jaw will be completely numb throughout the process, so there’s very little risk of feeling any discomfort as the dentist performs the treatment.

What are the Benefits of Propel?

When it comes to using Invisalign in tandem with Propel, there are numerous benefits to consider.

When choosing Invisalign, you can:

  • Shift teeth without metal hardware or countless dental visits
  • Maintain your appearance, whether you’re a teenager or a working professional
  • Eat and drink what you want (the aligners are removable)
  • Keep your current brushing and flossing habits

When choosing Propel Orthodontics, you can expect:

  • Shorter treatment times
  • Comfortable and reliable treatments
  • The same results
  • Customizable treatments depending on your needs

Why settle for traditional Invisalign treatment when there are ways to get the same result but faster? Schedule an appointment today to get started!
