Accelerated Orthodontics Q & A
What is PROPEL Orthodontics?
PROPEL Orthodontics combines a technological advancement of tools and micro surgical techniques that can help move teeth into their desired position 50% faster than teeth can move with Invisalign or traditional braces alone. Your body’s natural healing response can improve the position of your teeth faster and more efficiently.
This orthodontic technology ensures your teeth move more predictably into place and at a faster rate of time than with traditional braces. It also allows you to visit the office less frequently.
This treatment is minimally invasive and requires no recovery time. Immediately after treatment, you can expect to return to your normal activities.
How does PROPEL orthodontics work?
Dr. Hukmani first takes comprehensive X-rays of your teeth, evaluating the bone’s width and depth.
The PROPEL treatment only takes a few minutes, and Dr. Hukmani ensures your comfort during the procedure by using a local anesthetic.
He makes several small dimples (micro-osteoperforation) in the bone to create increased flexibility on both sides of your teeth. This flexibility is necessary to make tooth movement more efficient.
The procedure increases blood flow to your jaw bone, encouraging new bone tissue growth and improving overall bone strength.
The treatment plan he creates for you outlines how long you can expect to wear braces using PROPEL treatment technology and based on your specific dental needs.
Can accelerated orthodontics work with Invisalign®?
Regardless of which orthodontic treatment you desire, whether it’s traditional braces or Invisalign, you can benefit from PROPEL technology.
PROPEL is also effective for both adults and teenagers who want an improved smile without waiting years for results.
What are the benefits of accelerated orthodontics?
The primary benefit of accelerated orthodontics is the faster and more efficient treatment time. You can achieve excellent results in approximately half the time it would usually take using only braces or Invisalign technology.
Other benefits of accelerated orthodontics include:
- No surgical risks
- In-office treatment
- Minimal recovery time
- Works with any orthodontic device
- Effectively treats most common bite misalignments
