What You Need To Know About Propel Orthodontics
One of the top questions we get here at 360 Orthodontics from new patients is exactly how long treatment will take. Over the past few decades, there have been many advancements in orthodontic technology, but this question remains as many orthodontic treatments require a significant time commitment. Propel is aiming to change that, by studying the biology of tooth movement. Many orthodontists in Beverly Hills using Propel find that treatment time can be reduced by 40% or more – a significant time savings to clients. Another advantage of shortened treatment time is that with fewer treatments, there is less risk of side effects such as white spots and decalcification.
What is Propel?
Propel Orthodontics is the developer of innovative orthodontic devices and orthodontic techniques aimed at dramatically reducing the amount of total time spent in treatment. The Propel System is a simple three-step procedure that can be performed in our office. The Propel System uses a patented system to stimulate the bones in your mouth, which leads to fast bone remodeling – which is vital to achieve straight, beautiful smiles as it allows teeth to move faster and more predictably around your mouth. The Propel System can be used with many of the most popular brace system, including SureSmile and Invisalign in order to move teeth much faster than through traditional treatments.
Does Propel hurt?
This is another common question, and one we completely understand and sympathize with. 360 Orthodontics is proud that in most studies, little to no pain has been experienced by the patients. While some patients may require the use of local anesthetic during treatment, the vast majority can be treated comfortably through the use of topical gels and other mild pain relievers. The goal of Propel is to move teeth as quickly, and painlessly, as possible.
Is Propel more expensive than traditional treatment?
The total cost of your orthodontic treatment will vary, based on your own unique needs, desires and the condition of your teeth and smile. Compared to many other devices or systems, the cost of finishing treatment sooner cannot always be quantified, but is nonetheless important to remember.
