and Propel VPro5™
Like braces, Invisalign® aligner trays make minor adjustments to your teeth over a period of time until your teeth are correctly aligned. The clear aligners are custom made to fit your mouth, so before treatment starts, our team will take x-rays and impressions of your mouth to create your Invisalign® aligners. The length of your treatment varies depending on your teeth, and each aligner is slightly different in order to gently push your teeth into place. To achieve the best results, we recommend wearing your aligners for 20 to 22 hours each day. We’ll also schedule regular checkups to make sure your teeth are moving according to plan.
To speed up the traditional process by up to 50 percent, we offer Accelerated Invisalign® with Propel VPro5™ technology. This is a C-shaped, high-frequency vibration device that straightens teeth while minimizing discomfort. It uses micropulses to stimulate tooth movement and healthy bone regeneration. In addition, because the vibrations improve the fit of the aligners, they are more effective and the treatment plan requires fewer refinements.
Minimally invasive, safe, and easy, the Propel VPro5™ can be used in the comfort of your own home. Patients are recommended to use the device for five minutes a day, typically before bedtime. To use the device, connect the mouthpiece to the oscillator and then bite down on the mouthpiece gently. Vibration therapy will begin. After five minutes, the device will automatically turn off.
Why Choose Invisalign® Over Braces?
For many people, braces are painful and embarrassing. The metal brackets often irritate the cheeks and tongue, and food is easily snagged in the braces. That can make eating in public uncomfortable. Thankfully, those frustrations are eliminated with Accelerated Invisalign®. The clear aligner trays are practically invisible, so most people will never know you’re wearing them. The aligners also pop out easily, so you can eat and drink without worrying about food getting caught in your smile.
Why Opt for Accelerated Invisalign®?
When Invisalign® first hit the market, its biggest benefit was its ability to realign your teeth without hindering your smile with bulky metal brackets. Now, Accelerated Invisalign® improves your smile at a much faster pace. Depending on your treatment plan, aligners change every few days instead of every one to two weeks. That means you can upgrade your smile in almost half the time.
Is Accelerated Invisalign® Right for Me?
Each smile is unique, and that means your treatment plan needs to be custom made to meet your individual needs. To find out if Accelerated Invisalign® is right for you, schedule an appointment with the experienced team at Wilkinson Dental. We can also answer any questions you might have about the process, cost, and insurance.
We recommend Accelerated Invisalign® for many common orthodontic problems, including the following:
- Overcrowded teeth
- Misaligned teeth
- Gapped teeth
- Open bites
How Do You Care for Your Invisalign® Aligners and Propel VPro5™?
It’s surprisingly simple to take care of your Invisalign® aligners. The trays come out easily, which means your dental routine doesn’t need to change. Simply continue your daily brushing and flossing, and rinse your aligners every night. To keep them clean, be sure to brush your aligners gently with a toothbrush, and brush and rinse your teeth after eating and drinking.
To maintain your Propel VPro5™ system, only wear it for the amount of time recommended by your dentist or orthodontist (typically five minutes). Don’t sleep while wearing the device, don’t wear it while it is charging, and don’t allow anyone else to borrow it. When you finish using your device each day, allow it to charge. Between uses, detach the mouthpiece, rinse it with water, and let it dry.
