If you are looking to straighten your teeth but don’t want to wear braces or clear aligners for an extended period, our Propel orthodontic technology can significantly reduce your treatment time when combined with Invisalign.
In fact, with Propel® accelerated Invisalign® treatment, you could be finished with straightening your teeth in as little as 3-10 months! That’s a fraction of the time of conventional Invisalign treatment and much quicker than old-fashioned metal braces.
Traditional braces focus on mechanical methods that use moderate force to move your teeth into the desired position. The Propel process instead uses the body’s biological response quickly and painlessly to encourage tooth movement and regrowth and a better smile.
Propel advanced orthodontics accelerates Invisalign treatment by stimulating the bone surrounding the teeth to increase the rate and efficiency of their movement. When we create minute perforations in the bone above and between the teeth, the localized inflammation alerts the body’s natural healing response to provide an increased amount of blood flow and cytokines (growth factors) to the area. This expedites the bone remodeling process as the teeth continue to move. Propel treatment is highly effective at helping improve the accuracy of tooth movement and speeding up the orthodontic treatment process as a whole. The Propel technique is both safe and comfortable and allows us to offer you the opportunity to straighten teeth in only a few months!
Invisalign treatment is customized to your specific orthodontic case and designed to provide the most optimal results. We take impressions of your teeth using our iTero® digital scanner, which is used to create a series of custom clear aligners. These Invisalign aligners are worn for 20-22 hours each day and removed when you eat, drink, and for cleaning. In our Kansas City, MO office, we skillfully monitor your Invisalign treatment and utilize Propel techniques throughout to ensure the best results for your smile. Once you have completed Invisalign treatment, your teeth will be in their ideal position, providing you with an attractive new smile and a dramatic boost in self-confidence!
