One of the biggest things people want to know when it comes to getting braces is how long they will have to have them on for. It’s a good question too. While the amount of time can vary, advancements in orthodontic technology have improved the amount of time braces have to be worn for. One of those advances is something called Proper Orthodontics. Let’s take a look at what Propel is and how it works from your orthodontist in Plantation.
What is Propel?
Propel Orthodontics is the developer of innovative orthodontic devices and orthodontic techniques aimed at dramatically reducing the amount of total time spent in treatment. Orthodontists are finding that treatment time can be reduced by 40% or more when using Propel.
How Does It Work?
Propel is a three-step procedure that can be performed in your orthodontist’s office. It uses a patented system to stimulate the bones in your mouth, which leads to fast bone remodeling. It can be used with many of the most popular brace systems, including Invisalign in order to move teeth much faster than through traditional treatments.
Does it Hurt?
In most cases, little to no pain has been experienced by the patients. While some patients may require the use of local anesthetic during treatment, the vast majority can be treated comfortably through the use of topical gels and other mild pain relievers.
