At Clear Choice Orthodontic Associates, we offer the advanced Propel technology to patients who want a noninvasive method to speed up their treatment time in metal braces, clear braces, or Invisalign. When you use 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 smiling big before you even know it. If you’re looking for a faster way to straighten your teeth, try Propel in The Woodlands, TX!
Propel works in conjunction with your own biology by stimulating the bone that surrounds your teeth. This helps them move faster and more predictably into their ideal position. This allows you to see your new smile quicker and requires fewer visits to our The Woodlands orthodontics office. Additionally, Propel does not require any invasive surgical procedures and can be completed right here in our office. Furthermore, Propel treatment results in very little discomfort. There is zero recovery time, and you will be able to return to your daily routine immediately.
At Clear Choice Orthodontic Associates, we have two different types of Propel accelerated treatment available:
The VPro5 is a small device that you use for 5 minutes per day at home. You simply bite down on the mouthpiece while wearing your Invisalign aligners, and the VPro5 will deliver gentle vibrations to ensure that your aligners are seated properly.
Improperly fitted aligners can slow overall orthodontic treatment time and can sometimes even force patients to backtrack to prior aligner trays. With Propel VPro5, you can feel confident that your aligners are seated properly and enjoy your journey toward your ideal smile!
Propel’s Excellerator technology can be used with both braces and Invisalign to speed up overall treatment time. Propel’s Excellerator is a 15-minute, in-office gum treatment. An alternative to daily, at-home vibration treatments, Propel’s Excellerator orthodontic technology speeds up tooth movement by stimulating the bone surrounding the teeth for ease of movement. This allows you to get your new smile faster and requires fewer visits to our orthodontist’s office.
The AcceleDent system from Clear Choice Orthodontic Associates can shorten your orthodontic treatment time by up to 50%! This easy-to-use, pain-free appliance helps you achieve your most perfect smile in less time.
AcceleDent is a light, hands-free, comfortable appliance that is used for 20 minutes per day in addition to braces in order to accelerate tooth movement. The patented AcceleDent technology gently vibrates the teeth and surrounding bone, which allows the teeth to move into the desired position more freely. The best part of the AcceleDent system is that it’s entirely safe! You may experience a tingling sensation when starting treatment, similar to the vibration of an electric toothbrush, but this should diminish after you become accustomed to using the appliance.
Accelerate your orthodontic treatment without sacrificing aesthetics. AcceleDent is great 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, perfect smile faster than you thought possible. You can use it while reading, watching television, listening to music, or even while doing school work.
