How Does PROPEL Work?

PROPEL Orthodontic devices deliver painless high-frequency vibrations to stimulate your bone’s natural remodeling process. The PROPEL Orthodontic process may be performed in the dentist’s chair or via a take-home kit. This painless process encourages faster tooth movement to shorten the treatment process.

Premier Orthodontics & Dental Specialists offers the PROPEL Excellerator Series as well as PROPEL VPro Series. VPro devices are user-friendly and are designed to be used in the comfort of your home. The Excellerator Series is reserved for chairside treatment.

PROPEL Orthodontics accelerate tooth movement, improve predictability and reduce discomfort. These devices also ensure optimal aligner seating and assist in retainer wear.

The Treatment Process

If you’re a good candidate for PROPEL Orthodontics, our dentists will begin by asking you to rinse your mouth with a special solution to get your mouth ready for treatment. The dentist then applies a gel to numb your tissues.

Once your tissues are numb, the dentist uses a hand-held device to make tiny holes in your gums. These holes are used to deliver focused vibrations that accelerate tooth movement. Typically, we work on one quadrant of your mouth per session, with each session lasting only a couple of minutes.

If you require multiple treatment sessions, we’ll need to wait about six to eight weeks before scheduling you for your next PROPEL Orthodontics session. However, if you’re using a take-home kit, you may need to use the device every day for about five minutes for a favorable outcome. Remember to check in with our dentists in Elmhurst and Downers Grove, IL, in case of any questions.
