Fast Invisalign® Treatment with PROPEL® Orthodontics
Invisalign® is a top choice for clear braces among adults and teens. At Serenity Dental in Florida, we are pleased to offer Invisalign clear aligner orthodontics to our adult and teenage patients. With the Invisalign digital technology that plans your teeth movement and the custom clear aligning trays that are made in an Invisalign lab just for you, Dr. Patel can comfortably give you a healthier, more beautiful smile.
The exciting news is that Dr. Patel can also use PROPEL® Orthodontics, in combination with Invisalign, to accelerate orthodontic treatment by as much as 50-60%.
If you choose Invisalign treatment, you will have multiple sets of aligners custom made for your mouth. Each set is composed of an aligning tray you wear over your upper teeth and an aligning tray you wear over your lower teeth. Approximately every two weeks you will replace the current set of aligners with the next set, but you will not need to visit our office every two weeks. Instead, you will visit every 6 to 8 weeks for an examination of your progress.
Because the aligners are smooth, your will not experience soft tissue irritation in your mouth. Because they are almost invisible, many people will not be aware you are wearing them. And because you will remove them to eat and clean your teeth, you will enjoy a full range of foods and be able to thoroughly floss and bush your teeth without the impediment of traditional wire and bracket braces.
Invisalign can correct for most crowding or teeth spacing problems but it may not be the most appropriate treatment for a significant cross bite, under bite, or over bite. In the case of teens, Invisalign requires that most of the permanent
teeth have already erupted. Dr. Patel will advise you about alternative orthodontic methods that can be used for your circumstances if you are not an ideal candidate for Invisalign.
In our office, Dr. Nilash Patel provides orthodontic treatment using primarily two systems, the clear aligner technology of Invisalign and the clear bracket and wire technology of Six Month Smiles. In conjunction with these or other orthodontic systems, he can stimulate your bone tissue around tooth roots to facilitate faster movement of your teeth. The procedure can be safely used with all teeth or a subset of the teeth being moved.
Most patients only need one PROPEL treatment session, which can be completed in minutes. You will be numbed with a highly concentrated numbing gel and afterwards experience no or only minor discomfort, which can be treated with over the counter acetaminophen (Tylenol). You will be able to immediately return to your normal daily routine.
The PROPEL device used by Dr. Nilash Patel is FDA approved. It “fast tracks” orthodontic treatments by making small, controlled perforations in the alveolar bone that surround tooth roots. This stimulates cytokine activity thereby, accelerating alveolar bone remodeling and allowing tooth roots to migrate faster on the path the orthodontic aligner or wire and bracket system is directing them.
