Introducing PROPEL® - The Fastest Way to a Signature Smile
Dr. Kiersten Week is using the very latest in orthodontics technology to reduce the length of time that her patients must wear their orthodontic appliances. PROPEL® orthodontics works by stimulating the surrounding gum tissue to allow your teeth to move into proper alignment up to 50% faster than traditional methods. While old methods may require patients to wear braces over 12 months or more, many of Dr. Week's patients who use PROPEL® orthodontics are able to take their braces or aligners off in under 12 months. This is important to be able to cut down on the amount of time needed to wear braces or other appliances. A shortened treatment time also speeds you on your way to reduce your chances for complications resulting from out of place teeth including periodontal disease, abnormal tooth wear, tooth decay and sometimes jaw pain and discomfort due to pressure from misalignment.
While speeding the alignment process, PROPEL® also accelerates the movement of your teeth in a very predictable manner so that fewer adjustments, and fewer follow-up office visits, are necessary. All orthodontic treatments benefit from this technology, including spacing, crowding, open bite, cross bite and more.
