As experienced Invisalign providers, we’ve helped many patients find the ease and comfort of modern orthodontics.  Clear aligners eliminate the shine of braces, along with the discomfort associated with metal components.

But now, we’ve adapted a proven technique that often cuts Invisalign treatment time in half. Do you want to learn whether you’re a good candidate for this exciting treatment approach? Please call (314) 678-7876 (Downtown St. Louis) or (314) 678-7876 (Clayton) today for an appointment with cosmetic dentist Dr. Chris Hill at City Smiles in downtown or Clayton.

An Easy Way to Speed Invisalign

The PROPEL Vpro5 is a revolutionary procedure that enhances your orthodontic efforts from start to finish. First, there’s a quick treatment that prepares your teeth for movement. Then use the Vpro5 device for 5 minutes each day, this comfortable device gently vibrates your teeth. The carefully calibrated movement stimulates the teeth and bone, resulting in four distinct benefits:

  1. Easier aligner placement
  2. Reduces orthodontic discomfort
  3. Better retention with less relapse
  4. Accelerates positive bone changes

Designed with software and 3D computer models of your teeth, aligners made from medical-grade plastic produce predictable straightening.  No wires, metal, springs or rubber bands are needed to move your teeth gently into alignment.  We will provide several sets of aligners at a time, allowing you to change to a new one at home as appropriate.

How Vibrations Stimulate Tooth Movements

Orthodontics provides steady forces to encourage your body to remodel bone around your teeth. But the treatment also depends on the normal movements and contacts of your teeth. These stimulate the periodontal ligament, which helps release the cells that govern bone reshaping.

Vibrations provided by PROPEL perform a similar role to these natural tooth movements, but they’re much faster. Vibrating at 120 Hz, 5 minutes of PROPEL treatment is similar to chewing about 2000 extra bites of food a day. But without the tummy aches and weight gain!

It is recommended that you use PROPEL after you put your aligners in for the last time each night. That way, the longest, uninterrupted period of wear for your aligners gets the benefit of the vibrations.

Invisalign Made Better

Invisalign is already a great orthodontic option. Removable trays can be set aside for short periods allowing normal eating and cleaning.  Enjoying an apple without the intrusion of brackets and wires works well for many patients. And the smooth plastic surface offers a comfort level to the tongue and cheeks unequaled by other forms of straightening.

Even though Invisalign provides a stealth mode of straightening, you want to enjoy a perfect smile as soon as possible. That’s why PROPEL Vpro5 and Invisalign make an unbeatable combination, eliminating months of orthodontic treatment.  You’ll be enjoying the smile of your dreams before you know it!
