Straightening Your Teeth Just Got Easier — and Faster
Did you make a resolution to improve your teeth this year? That’s a smart decision — straight teeth can completely transform your smile in a beautiful way. Having straight teeth does more than just look good — it’s also better for your health.
Having crooked teeth increases your risk of tooth decay by making it harder to clean in between spaces and crossed-over teeth. This allows plaque to build up in those hard-to-reach areas, eventually turning into cavities and causing infections. Depending on the severity of your misalignment, it might even be harder to chew your food properly, leading to many more problems.
No one should have to deal with low self esteem or health issues because of crooked teeth. With so many advancements in dental technology, it’s easier than ever to straighten teeth. It’s faster than ever before and in most cases, can be done without traditional metal braces. How? By combining Invisalign braces with PROPEL, a treatment often called “accelerated orthodontics.”
What is Invisalign?
By now, most people are familiar with Invisalign, but not necessarily how it works.
Invisalign involves clear plastic material that’s practically invisible to other people. It’s worn for most of the day, but is removable and can be taken out to eat and brush your teeth. You’ll wear one for about 6 weeks before heading to your dentist or orthodontist for a new mold that will continue to straighten your teeth even more.
On average, it takes about one year, to achieve the straight teeth you’ve always wanted!
What is PROPEL?
Need to straighten your teeth in less than a year? PROPEL accompanies Invisalign as a faster way to straighten teeth. Depending on the severity and position of your teeth, it can cut the time it takes to straighten your teeth in half.
PROPEL works by stimulating the bones around the teeth. By increasing cytokine activity, it makes the bones easier to remold. If needed, it allows your doctor to target specific teeth.
You’ll have a straighter smile with fewer trips to your doctor, at a comparable price to traditional braces!
