PROPEL® ORTHODONTIC TECHNOLOGY
In our continuous effort to provide the best orthodontic care for our patients, we are excited to include PROPEL® technology in our dental practice. PROPEL® stimulates bone remodeling, allowing the teeth to move faster and more predictably into their ideal position. This innovative technology allows Dr. Guinn to finish treatment more effectively and efficiently.
This means less time in treatment for both patients in traditional braces or using Invisalign™ aligners. PROPEL® works with the patient’s own biology by stimulating the bone surrounding the teeth. Patients will finish their treatment with exceptional results in less time and with fewer treatment visits. Visit The Smile Agency if you are looking for fast and effective results from an orthodontist West Covina & Pasadena patients can rely on.
WHY SHOULD I CONSIDER PROPEL® ORTHODONTICS?
The PROPEL® System uses a procedure called Alveocentesis™ to make orthodontic systems, such as Invisalign® and traditional braces, more efficient.
Alveocentesis™ stimulates the production of alveolar bone in the maxilla and mandible, the upper and lower jaw, so as teeth shift into alignment, the bone that holds teeth in place can better adjust to shifting teeth. An increasing number of adults are seeking the variety of orthodontic treatments available to straighten their teeth.
Many adults can receive orthodontic treatments without the worry of bone growth or development and still achieve beautiful results, but severe malocclusion, such as an overbite or crossbite, may provide an added concern during orthodontic treatments. In addition to less bone development, adults heal more slowly, and their teeth shift at a slower rate. PROPEL® can help with all of these factors while on your journey to achieve a perfect smile.
HOW CAN PROPEL® ORTHODONTICS HELP ME?
At The Smile Agency., Dr. Guinn provides PROPEL® Orthodontics to help facilitate and expedite the orthodontic process, especially in adult patients whose avuncular bone can no longer produce new bone to accommodate shifting teeth.
The PROPEL® system will help both your teeth shift and tissues heal faster than they ever could with orthodontic treatment alone. PROPEL® Orthodontics can also help produce faster results in patients whose bone growth is still active, such as in teens and young adults.
With PROPEL® Orthodontics, Dr. Guinn can help:
● Shift teeth faster.
● Heal tissues faster.
● Stimulate alveolar bone development.
● Supplement and enhance the process of orthodontic treatments.
Using the VPro5 benefits our patients in several ways. The VPRO5 helps to ensure that your aligners are seated around your teeth as closely as possible, increasing the aligners’ “grip” and precision-fit on the teeth, and in turn, decreasing treatment time by about 40%! Another added benefit?
Many patients using the VPro5 report improved comfort after changing aligners or having their braces adjusted.
AcceleDent Aura’s SoftPulse Technology releases a safe and effective light force pulse that transmits through the roots of your teeth to the surrounding bone socket.
This helps accelerate the cellular response and speeds the rate with which your teeth can move. When used in conjunction with orthodontics, AcceleDent Aura has been clinically proven to move teeth up to 50% faster.
