So how does Propel work?
Propel incorporates a simple 3 step system which is used chair-side by your orthodontist to stimulate the bone around your teeth during tooth movement. This increases the speed of bone remodeling which is a paramount step toward achieving the straight, perfect smile you’ve always wanted.
In traditional orthodontic treatment, teeth move as a result of pressures placed by your braces. These pressures result in bone remodeling as teeth shift and move through bone to their desired position. With Propel this process is accelerated by stimulating your bone to rebuild and remodel, achieving the desired results in far less time and with much less discomfort. In fact in some clinical trials the Propel system has been proven to reduce orthodontic treatment time by up to 60%.
While the Propel system helps shift your teeth into their desired position quickly and painlessly it also helps Dr. Schulhof and his team in predicting how your teeth will move and respond to treatment. Being able to accurately predict tooth movement advances your treatment and provides ideal results. Propel also works in conjunction with a variety of braces types, including Invisalign, to correct many different orthodontic concerns.
