For many adults, a crooked smile can be a major nuisance. While some cosmetic dental issues like discoloration can be easily resolved, many adults shy away from clunky, unsightly, and uncomfortable metal braces. Thanks to Invisalign, old-school braces don’t have to be your only option. Invisalign treatments correct overcrowded and misaligned teeth with a series of transparent aligner trays. Now, you can get the smile you’ve always wanted even faster with Accelerated Invisalign, which we pair with Propel VPro5™, a vibration device. If you have questions about the Accelerated Invisalign system, allow us to walk you through Accelerated Invisalign 101.

How Does Accelerated Invisalign Work?
You’re probably familiar with how braces work: They make small adjustments to your teeth over time until they reach the desired alignment. Invisalign aligner trays do the same thing using different technology. You’re fitted with a set of clear aligners that are created using a mold of your mouth. You’ll wear the aligners during the day and at night, gently pushing your teeth into the desired alignment. Accelerated Invisalign simply speeds up this process. We treat our Accelerated Invisalign patients with Propel VPro5™ technology, a C-shaped vibration device that straightens teeth in a series of short treatments. That technology allows us to speed up the Invisalign process by up to 50 percent.
The Role of Propel VPro5™ Technology
Propel VPro5™ is perhaps the most interesting part of Accelerated Invisalign 101. Propel VPro5™ stimulates tooth movement and bone regeneration with a series of micropulses. Those pulses also improve the fit of your aligners, speeding up your treatment plan. All you have to do is use the Propel VPro5™ device for five minutes a day by connecting the device mouthpiece to the oscillator, then biting down on it until vibrations stop.
Am I a Good Candidate for Accelerated Invisalign?
Accelerated Invisalign can treat a wide variety of common orthodontic issues including overcrowded and misaligned teeth, unwanted gaps in teeth, overbites, and underbites. However, smiles are like fingerprints: No two are the same. To honor your individual needs, we’ll design a treatment plan just for you. Of course, Accelerated Invisalign is not for everyone. Make sure to schedule an appointment with the experienced team at Wilkinson Dental to find out more.
How Quickly Will I See Results From Accelerated Invisalign?
With traditional Invisalign, most patients will see results within about a year. Accelerated Invisalign can improve your smile at an even faster pace. Depending on your individual needs and treatment plan, you’ll change your aligners every few days, which can upgrade your smile in less than half the time of traditional Invisalign treatments.
How Much Does Accelerated Invisalign Cost?
Accelerated Invisalign typically costs a bit more than standard braces. However, the cost can be split up into easy monthly payments, some of which may be covered by your insurance provider. The experts at Wilkinson Dental will be able to give you a cost estimate for your Accelerated Invisalign treatment plan. We’re happy to walk you through the process, cost, and insurance requirements during your consultation.
