Have you been thinking about straightening your teeth? Fixing an overbite? Doing something about overcrowding? A dazzling smile dramatically improves your appearance and boosts your confidence. Who wouldn’t want that?
Whether you’ve been mulling over enhancing your smile for weeks or years, one of the main drawbacks you and many others — especially adults — face is the time that it takes to achieve the smile of your dreams.
Let’s face it — because of the time involved, some people simply accept their crooked smiles.
Getting braces adjusted can be time-consuming. Braces can be challenging to maintain, and even clear aligners can pose a problem if you lose one or more trays. There are lots of reasons why people want to improve their smile but don’t — the main two being time and the appearance of braces.
There’s a better way. At The Smile Agency in Pasadena, California, we offer Propel Accelerated Orthodontics, a type of accelerated orthodontics technology. Propel greatly reduces the amount of time you need to wear orthodontics, in some cases by up to 50%. Do you want to have a picture-perfect smile by next year? Learn how it’s possible.
What is Propel Orthodontics?
Propel Accelerated Orthodontics is a new technology that speeds up the time it takes for braces to make your teeth move. In some cases, it can speed up the time by 50%.
During a Propel procedure at The Smile Agency, Karen Guinn, DDS uses microsurgical techniques called micro-osteoperforation to make small dimples in the bone. These small dimples help your teeth move more easily through the bone, allowing the bite correction to progress faster.
Propel Orthodontics benefits
In addition to significantly reducing the amount of time needed to improve your smile, there are many other benefits to using Propel. These benefits include:
- Fewer visits to the orthodontist’s office
- Very little downtime
- Minimal surgical risks
- Works with all types of braces and Invisalign® aligners
- Appropriate for both healthy teenagers and adults
The Propel Accelerated Orthodontics procedure is not right for everyone. It is most effective in non-complicated teeth alignment cases. If you need extractions or implants, have a complicated medical history, or have medical issues like allergies, sleep apnea, or weight problems, this treatment may not be appropriate.
