Propel Orthodontic Accelerated Process Option
The practice of dentistry is rather complex. There are nine areas of specific focus. Several of the more popular are pediatric dentistry which is working with children, periodontics which just focuses on just your gums and supporting tissues and then orthodontic dentistry, which is the branch that corrects your teeth and jaws if positioning is improper. Teeth can come in crooked, incorrect spacing resulting in either crowding or gaps, overbites, underbites and misalignment that result in bite pattern complications. So an orthodontist has several options to move your teeth. The most common are the different versions of the traditional braces and then the Invisalign system. Now Dr. Pan can introduce the Propel orthodontic process to either of these methods and take close to 50% off from the expected time that the process will take. Let’s take a quick review of the process options and how teeth are moved and then introduce the Propel Orthodontics process into the mix.
Introduce the Propel Orthodontic Process into your Procedure
Orthodontic treatment, either with the fixed version of the appliance, or the removable variety, will take six to 24 months to realign your teeth. The national average is about 13 months. If you had the chance to shorten that dramatically would you consider the possibility? Talk to Dr. Pan about considering the Propel device with your treatment plan. Propel has been proven to take 50% off your treatment plan. That’s right, 50% faster!
How Propel Works
The Propel system introduces and creates alveolar perforations in your tissue and your jaws to make the orthodontic movements more efficient. By creating these micro perforations it stimulates bone production and accelerates the process. Your teeth will move faster and your tissues will heal faster. It has been proven to make the process faster where bone growth is still active which is the case in teenagers and young adults. Which is also the dominate age for orthodontic treatment.
Simple steps of the Propel Process
After an evaluation and consultation with Dr. Pan x-rays are taken to determine the size of the gaps that exist between your teeth. These will be the areas of focus for the micro perforations. The x-ray findings will be physically confirmed next.
The gap areas that are available for the addition of the Propel system will then receive local anesthetic. This way you will experience no discomfort through the actual application. Each tooth that is going to be moved will have one to three holes made on each side of that tooth. These tiny holes are made through the gum and into the underlying bone. AND, that is it. These tiny holes allow the teeth to shift faster, quicker and stimulate bone development. Another win-win advancement in the dental industry.
