Dr. Mazock and the team at San Antonio Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery Associates, P.A. offer PROPEL, a revolutionary technology that helps patients achieve straight teeth fast. Whether you or a family member is wearing traditional braces or Fast Invisalign, part of the orthodontic process involves bone remodeling, which allows your teeth to remain in proper alignment. PROPEL increases the rate of alveolar bone remodeling so you can enjoy fast orthodontic treatment and a more predictable outcome.
Fast Braces with PROPEL
In almost all cases, PROPEL reduces the amount of time patients are in braces or clear aligners. The system works with your own body’s natural biology to stimulate the bone tissue that surrounds teeth and encouraging teeth to move faster. While you are lightly sedated, a procedure called micro-osteoperforation is performed. A number of perforations are made at strategic points along your jaw in order to advance the bone remodeling necessary to move your teeth faster. And when your teeth move faster, you’ll be done with braces faster, too!
In-Office PROPEL Treatment
The simple three-step in-office treatment is performed in minutes by the doctor and is done during a patient’s regularly scheduled appointment. PROPEL yields no discomfort to the patient and requires no recovery time so normal daily activities can be resumed immediately. Results from patients who have already received PROPEL have been exceptional in a range of cases including spacing, crowding, open bite, cross bite, and more.
If you are looking to have accelerated orthodontic treatment, please speak to Dr. Mazock or any member of the team at SAOMSA about PROPEL. We’ll be glad to answer any of your questions and help you achieve a straight smile faster!
