At Clear Choice Orthodontic Associates, we are proud to offer Propel technology to patients who want a noninvasive method to speed up their treatment time in metal braces, clear braces, or Invisalign. By using Propel, you can reduce the time of your orthodontic treatment by up to 50%! With accelerated treatment from Clear Choice Orthodontic Associates, you’ll be flashing your most beautiful smile before you know it. If you’re looking for a faster way to straighten your teeth, try Propel in Friendswood, TX!
Propel works alongside your own biology by stimulating the bone surrounding your teeth, which helps the teeth move faster and more predictably into their ideal position. This allows you to see your new smile quicker and requires fewer visits to our Friendswood orthodontics office. Additionally, Propel can be completed right here in our office and does not require invasive surgical procedures. Furthermore, Propel treatment results in very little discomfort. There is zero recovery time, and you will be able to return to your normal daily routine immediately.
Propel is an option for approximately 80% of patients receiving orthodontic treatment and can be used in conjunction with any treatment type, including Invisalign clear aligners, clear braces, and metal braces.
At Clear Choice Orthodontic Associates, we are pleased to offer two different types of accelerated treatment with Propel:
The VPro5 is a small device that you use at home for just 5 minutes per day. You simply bite down on the mouthpiece while you’re wearing your Invisalign aligners, and the VPro5 delivers gentle vibrations to ensure that your aligners fit properly.
Improperly seated aligners can slow overall treatment time and sometimes force patients to backtrack to previous aligner trays. With Propel VPro5, you can feel confident that your aligners fit well and enjoy your journey toward your ideal smile!
Propel’s Excellerator technology can be used with both braces and Invisalign to speed up your overall treatment time. Propel’s Excellerator is a 15-minute, in-office gum treatment. An alternative to daily, at-home vibration treatments, Propel orthodontic technology speeds up tooth movement by stimulating the bone surrounding your teeth. This allows you to see your new smile faster and requires fewer visits to our office.
The AcceleDent system from Clear Choice Orthodontic Associates can reduce the time of your orthodontic treatment by up to 50%! This pain-free, easy appliance helps you achieve your most perfect smile in no time at all.
AcceleDent is a light, comfortable, hands-free appliance that is used 20 minutes per day as a complement to braces to accelerate tooth movement. The patented technology gently vibrates the teeth and surrounding bone, allowing teeth to move into your desired position more freely. The best part of the AcceleDent system is that it’s entirely safe! You may experience a tingling sensation, similar to the vibration of an electric toothbrush, but this should diminish after you become accustomed to using the appliance.
Accelerate your orthodontic experience without sacrificing aesthetics. AcceleDent works for adolescents, teens, and adults, and it is completely safe for patients of all ages. Furthermore, the AcceleDent appliance is lightweight and comfortable. You might even forget you’re using it! The hands-free design allows you to achieve a beautiful, straight smile faster than you ever thought possible. You can simply use it while reading, watching television, listening to music, or even while doing school work.
