Ask Your Invisalign Dentist if Propel is Right for You
In our last blog, we discussed what Propel technology is and how it helps our patients with their Invisalign treatment. Another common question we’re asked about Propel is whether or not someone is eligible to receive the procedure. In almost all cases, the answer is yes! We’ll discuss this in further detail, so read on to learn more, and make sure to ask your Invisalign dentist any questions you might have about Propel or your treatment.
Brief Overview of Propel
As a quick reminder for those who don’t know what Propel is, or if you missed our last blog, Propel is a technology to accelerate Invisalign treatment. The Propel device is used to stimulate the bones around difficult-to-move teeth. The released micro pulses cause the bones to remodel and change. The procedure is quick, easy, and relatively painless. The benefit of the process is it can reduce your overall Invisalign treatment time to half of what it would be.
Am I Eligible for Propel?
If you’re receiving Invisalign treatment, the answer is more than likely yes. The procedure is simple and overall non-invasive. In very rare cases Propel may not be an option. Propel makes its micro-perforations in the bone by way of the gums, so if you have severe gum issues, it may not be a good option. Using Propel will be at the discretion of your Invisalign dentist, as they’ll be able to make a decision based on your unique circumstances.
Another common worry people have about Propel is cost. Propel is designed to make you need fewer visits to your Invisalign dentist. In most cases, your treatment takes 50% less time than it would without Propel technology. This is another case where it depends on your circumstances. Make sure to inquire with your Invisalign dentist about financial options for Propel.
