Propel

Propel is a treatment that helps Invisalign work more efficiently. With Propel, teeth move into their targeted positions 50% faster than they normally would. Propel uses a unique technique called AlveocentesisTM to encourage the growth of alveolar bone (the bone that holds teeth in place) in the upper and lower jaw. As teeth move into proper alignment with orthodontic treatment, the alveolar bone is able to adjust more quickly and support teeth in their new position.

Smile Reminder

"I was very impressed by the doctor's knowledge and expertise. He was also very patient with me to answer all my questions. I didn't feel rushed at all and I would definitely go back to see him. His office staff is also very friendly!"

At Luxury Dentistry NYC, we are committed to helping our patients achieve a healthy and beautiful smile in a time frame that works for them. When we meet with patients who want straighter teeth as fast as possible, we may recommend Propel® in combination with Invisalign, our top choice when it comes to clear braces. Whether you have an important event to attend or just want straight teeth as quickly as possible, we encourage you to consider accelerated orthodontics.

How does Propel work?

Propel works by taking advantage of the “regional accelerated phenomena,” a term that describes the dramatic increase in bone remodeling activity that occurs in an area where the bone has been surgically injured. Upper and lower jaw bone remodeling helps teeth move into the desired position more quickly. Our dentists use the Propel system to create micro-osteoperforations to stimulate alveolar bone remodeling.

For patients who want fast Invisalign, we usually perform Propel treatment when they receive their first Invisalign trays. The treatment itself is very straightforward and can be performed by Dr. Steven Davidowitz during a routine office visit. Here’s how it works:

  1. The first step is to determine where to place the microperforations. To do this, we review a recent x-ray of your teeth and perform a physical examination of the teeth and gums.
  2. Next, we ask you to rinse your mouth with chlorhexidine, an antiseptic mouthwash, to reduce risk of infection.
  3. We will then apply a numbing cream or inject a local anesthetic.
  4. Once the mouth is prepped, we use the Propel device to create a number of tiny “acupuncture-like” holes at varying depths in the gums around your teeth.

After the treatment is complete, you may feel well enough to resume normal activities. Most patients feel little to no discomfort after their treatment. Minor discomfort can be managed with Tylenol.

VPro5 by Propel

VPro5 by Propel

The VPro5 by Propel is an adjunctive orthodontic tool prescribed by dentists to both speed up and increase in the efficacy of patients Invisalign clear aligner treatment. Clear Aligner invisalign treatment involves the use of aligner trays to gradually straighten the teeth. The VPro5 was created to allow Invisalign treatment to be quicker and more efficient for the patient. It does this by delivering pre-programmed light vibrations to the aligners through a mouthpiece, which increases blood flow around your teeth and ensures the aligners are properly seated on the teeth. This prevents backtracking during treatment caused by improperly fitted aligners and results in overall accelerated treatment.

How To Use VPro5

VPro5 is a small, portable tool which can be used either in office or at home. It should be used once per day for five minutes until your dentist says otherwise. Using the device is very simple, as you will simply connect the mouthpiece of the device to the oscillator, make sure the device is firmly attached, and then turn it on. The tool will slowly begin to vibrate. Once this happens, you will put in your Invisalign aligners and gently bite down on the mouthpiece. You will continue to bite for the duration for five minutes, after which the device will turn off by itself. Once you’re finished, the device should be rinsed for easy clean-up.

Benefits of VPro5

Often during Invisalign treatment, aligners may not be seated properly on your teeth, causing treatment to be delayed and possibly become more expensive. With the VPro5, your aligners will stay properly seated in your mouth, allowing you to speed up treatment and prevent backtracking. Also, the vibration you will experience during the VPro5 therapy will increase blood flow and cellular activity around your teeth, allowing treatment to be sped up even further. In addition, many patients report a therapeutic effect on patient comfort when using Vpro5. This tool combined with Dr. Davidowitz’ Invisalign treatment is perfect for patients who want beautiful straight teeth without the hassle of a long treatment process.
