Dr. Dorsch and the staff of his Kansas City, Cameron and Liberty orthodontic offices are all committed to helping you achieve that bright, healthy smile you deserve. Part of that commitment means keeping up with the latest proven technology and treatments that can accomplish that goal. One of those treatments is called Propel. Propel is a type of orthodontic acceleration called manual osteoperforation that involves creating tiny perforations in the the gums and jawbone to cause teeth to move into the desired place more quickly. You will find it available at all three of the Creekwood Orthodontics locations.
Propel can be used in both proactive and reactive cases for Dr. Dorch’s patients. Proactively, Propel can be added to standard orthodontic treatments such as braces or Invisalign to speed up the teeth straightening process. Reactively, orthodontists use Propel to help get stubborn teeth back on track when their movement slows down during orthodontic treatment that is already in place. In both cases, the procedure is pain-free and proven effective in clinical studies and in Dr. Dorch’s own experience.
Propel works by allowing the body to use its natural reactions to force tooth movement. Instead of forcing the teeth to move by exerting pressure on them from the outside using brackets, wires or aligners, Propel causes the teeth to move from inside cellular reaction. The process is most effective for older adolescents and adults due to their cellular activity. Here’s how the process works:
Orthodontists like Dr. Dorsch and his Northland area patients have found several benefits in using the Propel technology.
Whether you are wanting to get started with braces, Invisalign or other orthodontic treatment, or your treatment is already underway, investigate whether Propel could be right for you. Propel’s innovative approach to moving teeth faster can move you swiftly on your way to straight, healthy teeth and a beautiful, confident smile.
