Stage1 of Propel Completed!
If you could wear braces for 50-60% less of the time and still have perfectly straight teeth, wouldn’t you? Angie would! She has just finished her first stage of propel treatment. Thanks to advances in accelerated braces like the Propel device, you too could be out of braces sooner and into your gorgeous new smile.
Used with any style of braces, the Propel device creates small holes in the bone to facilitate faster movement of the teeth. This relatively painless procedure dramatically reduces the time it takes for the braces to move the teeth, meaning you can have the braces taken off sooner. Once your braces are removed, your bones will heal to their original density.
Teeth that aren’t aligned properly, also known as malocclusion, can affect your overall health. If you have never worn braces, chances are you are one of the estimated 74% of adults to have malocclusion. If not treated, malocclusion can lead to joint discomfort, tooth decay, fractures, periodontal disease and abnormal wear and trauma. Malocclusion is evident in uneven spacing, crowding, cross bite, deep bite and open bite. All of these conditions can be eliminated sooner with accelerated braces using Propel technology.
When teeth are crooked, it makes it difficult to properly clean the spaces between the teeth and the gums, which leads to periodontal (gum) disease. Symptoms of gum disease include bleeding gums, bad breath, bone loss and sometimes tooth loss. Left untreated, it can lead to heart disease, stroke, respiratory disease and diabetes.
Crooked teeth are more than a cosmetic issue. They can have an impact on the health of your whole body if left untreated. Thanks to the technology of Propel, you can wear braces for a shorter period of time while still achieving the perfect smile you’ve always wanted.
