At Court Square Dentistry, we are always looking for ways to enhance our patients’ dental care with new technology. If there is a technique or process that will reduce discomfort or be more convenient for our patients, we want to investigate using it at our office.
Using Propel Orthodontics is a great example of how new technology can benefit our patients, shortening their orthodontic treatment for faster results. We offer both clear Invisalign orthodontics and Propel to help our patients achieve a straight, gorgeous smile quicker and with less inconvenience than traditional braces.
What Is Propel?
Propel is a revolutionary treatment that works with orthodontics to accelerate the teeth straightening process. Some teeth are harder to move than others, extending the time it will take to align teeth with the use of braces or aligners.
During orthodontic treatment with Invisalign and ClearCorrect, the aligners put mild pressure on the teeth, loosening the ligaments that hold the teeth in place and encouraging movement. This can be a slow process, especially if you have a special event coming up like a wedding or reunion!
Propel creates micro osteo-perforations that stimulate bone production around the teeth, helping accelerate the alignment process. Using Propel along with orthodontic treatment can reduce alignment time by up to 60%, getting you the smile you want in less time and with fewer trips to our office.
Clear Braces, Straight Teeth
Both our teen and adult patients who need orthodontics can get the results they want without metal braces. We offer both Invisalign and ClearCorrect clear aligners for discrete, effective alignment for both teens and adults.
When combined with Propel treatments, teeth can be shifted into place at an accelerated rate. The process is virtually painless and can be performed during your regular orthodontic appointments to our office. It is possible to shave months off your orthodontic treatment and get you the smile you want even sooner than you expected.
Why Straight Teeth Matter
Of course straight teeth are important for an attractive, confident smile, but straight teeth are also healthier teeth! When your teeth are properly aligned, it’s much easier to brush and floss them, so the risk of developing cavities or gum disease is reduced.
Additionally, properly aligned teeth distribute biting force equally so that no single tooth has to endure more pressure than it is designed to handle. This protects teeth from chips, cracks, and fractures and help you avoid other common problems associated with misalignments like chronic clenching and grinding (bruxism) and temporomandibular joint disorder, painful inflammation that affects your jaw joint.
