Sometimes patients opt for braces but want to have some speed built into them as well! When this happens and we find our patient fit to have a brace enhancing procedure done, we might opt for PROPEL.
PROPEL is a sterile, handheld and disposable device that we will use to make a small, virtually painless puncture in the bone so that the bone in which your teeth have to move, is a little less dense. Your teeth will then move faster and align in about half the time that braces alone would have moved them in.
It will take your doctor only about 5 minutes to perform the procedure! Also – if we use PROPEL to shorten the time to the smile you desire and deserve, it will have other benefits too: you will have fewer appointments to the orthodontist – and the bone that we punctured, will actually be stronger than before.
