Propel Accelerated Treatment

About Propel 

Mar Orthodontics is pleased to announce that we now offer Propel®, innovative and advanced orthodontic technologies that work with both braces and aligners (e.g. Invisalign) to fast track your orthodontic treatment.

While each patient’s treatment time will vary due to the complexity of their orthodontic issues, many Propel® patients can have their orthodontic treatment lessened by several months. To benefit from Propel® you must first have your braces or aligners in place. 

Propel Orthodontics offers two main technologies: 1) Propel tips and 2) Propel VPro5.

Propel® tips are patented, FDA-registered medical devices. They stimulate the bone surrounding your teeth, which helps teeth move faster and more predictably into their ideal position.

More specifically, this technology is used to create micro-osteoperforations in areas requiring a large amount of movement. These perforations create a localized inflammatory response. Your body will increase blood flow and cytokines (protein messenger cells) to the area, which results in increased bone remodelling activity, resulting in accelerated tooth movement. This process maintains the integrity of the bone and teeth while facilitating faster orthodontic treatment. 

This procedure can be performed at your regularly scheduled appointments as it takes minimal time. A local anesthetic is used. It does not require any dietary or activity restrictions, and is ideally performed at the beginning of your orthodontic treatment. Following the procedure you can carry on with your normal day to day activities. Typically one to two Propel treatments are required, but in some cases multiple treatments may be necessary.

propel vpro5 for invisalign

Propel VPro5 is a high frequency vibration device designed for use with Invisalign. The device is used for five minutes every day, typically before bed when you’ll be wearing your aligners for the longest, uninterrupted period of time. The lights on the VPro5 device will let you know when the cycle is complete.

The high frequency vibrations help to position your aligners on your teeth to achieve a snug fit, ensuring your teeth move fully and accurately in the direction intended by your orthodontist.

Improper aligner positioning can result in extended treatment time.
