Orthodontic treatment can make a huge difference for both the health and appearance of your smile. However, some people, particularly adults, are hesitant about receiving orthodontic treatment because of the time involved. If you are worried about the time required for orthodontics, Dr. Adenwalla and Dr. Ashai may suggest speed straightening with Propel®.

Accelerated Orthodontics Technology
Propel is a simple, easy and fast device that is used throughout orthodontic treatment. The device is even used during the retention stage. Propel can be used with both braces and clear aligner treatments. Propel is used for just five minutes a day. This device uses high-frequency vibration to accelerate orthodontic treatment drastically.

Advantages of Accelerated Orthodontics
There are many advantages that come from utilizing accelerated orthodontics with Propel, including:

– Propel technology is used to seat the orthodontic aligners properly on the teeth. When proper aligner seating is achieved, orthodontic treatment is more effective.
– The high-frequency vibration can also cause patients to feel less discomfort when they change aligner sets or come in for braces adjustment.
– Patients who use Propel may have far fewer orthodontic appointments, which saves them both time and money.
– Propel technology also accelerates the goals of retention after orthodontic treatment. When Propel is used as directed, the bone density is increased more quickly, the fibers of the teeth are relaxed more quickly, and the chances of relapse are decreased.

Eligibility for Propel
When you visit A&A Orthodontics, ask our doctors if Propel is right for you and your orthodontic needs. An evaluation will be performed to see if you are a good candidate. Photographs, X-rays and impressions may be taken of your teeth to help determine your eligibility. If you are a candidate, Drs. Adenwalla and Ashai will be able to help you decide which device is best for your smile.
