At Kottemann Orthodontics, we know how important straight, healthy smiles are to our patients.
We also know that some patients prefer a more discreet option when undergoing orthodontic treatment, and of course every orthodontic patient wants to complete their treatment as soon as possible, without sacrificing results. Thanks to its removability and near invisibility, the Invisalign system is currently the most popular alternative to traditional metal braces we offer.
As a Top 1% Invisalign provider, we’ve given hundreds of patients a beautifully straightened smile using the clear aligners, and now we are able to combine Invisalign with a variety of accelerated orthodontic devices. This gives us the opportunity to provide an innovative new treatment option to patients looking for treatment that is subtle, fast, and effective. Accelerated Invisalign treatment could shorten your treatment time by up to 50% with aligner changes every 3-5 days instead of every week.
Accelerated Invisalign with Propel
The Propel system can be used with most orthodontic treatments, including Invisalign, and it can help move your teeth significantly faster than orthodontic treatment on its own. Here at Kottemann Orthodontics, we offer both chairside and at-home Propel treatments.
The Propel Excellerator is a quick and easy chairside procedure performed by one of our qualified doctors. The bone around your teeth is stimulated by causing micro-osteoperforations, which creates a localized inflammatory response that increases blood flow and cytokines in the areas of the mouth where we want to see movement. As the bone activity increases, the teeth will move at a faster pace. There is zero recovery time with this procedure and you’ll be able to return to your daily routine immediately.
Vpro5 by Propel is an at-home device you use throughout the course of your Invisalign treatment. As you gently bite down on this removable appliance, it delivers a mild pulsating force we call “micro-pulses” to the teeth, which increases blood flow, and encourages bone growth and cellular activity. In turn, this speeds up the tooth moving process. VPro5 is simple to use and can easily be used at home or wherever you need to be. By using this device just five minutes every day, you can help accelerate your orthodontic progress.
Accelerated Invisalign with AcceleDent
The AcceleDent system is another option for achieving a significantly improved smile more quickly. Using its patented SoftPulse technology to deliver consistent pressure to the teeth via micropulses, bone remodeling is fast-tracked, resulting in an increased rate of tooth movement. Through the application of gentle micro-vibrations, bone remodeling is fast-tracked, resulting in quicker tooth movement. The device is lightweight and easy to use. By wearing the mouthpiece around your aligner for twenty minutes daily, the orthodontic process should move faster, and without any adverse side effects.
By combining traditional Invisalign treatment with one of our accelerated orthodontic treatments, you can speed up the movement of your teeth by up to 50% when compared to orthodontic treatment alone. These processes are gentle and have no negative side effects, making any one of them a great way to make the treatment process even more customized to fit your individual needs. In addition to moving the teeth more quickly, many patients feel that these acceleration devices also reduce the discomfort of tooth movement, and help your aligners fit even better!
With Accelerated Invisalign, you’ll not only experience all the wonderful benefits the Invisalign system has to offer, but you’ll be able to experience it in less time, giving you the smile you’ve always wanted without as much waiting.
After you’ve begun using the device, your orthodontist is able to measure your tooth movement. He or she will be able to tell you how much faster your teeth are moving and how much quicker you will achieve your beautiful smile!
