What Is PROPEL?

Lawrence & Topeka PROPEL uses a special handheld device that is designed to stimulate the bone surrounding your teeth, which will help your teeth move faster during orthodontic treatment. Treatment with Lawrence PROPEL is administered in a single session, where Dr. Hamilton, Wilson, or Hendrickson will use the device to target specific, difficult-to-move teeth, triggering a natural response from your body that will accelerate tooth movement throughout the course of your treatment. With PROPEL Orthodontics, you can shorten the time that you need to wear your braces or Topeka Invisalign by up to 50%! .

How Does The PROPEL Device Work?

Your typical time frame for braces or Lawrence Invisalign is between 12 or 18 months. This is because the rate at which your teeth and jawbone can move and adjust is naturally slow, especially for adults who have a fully developed jaw. Topeka PROPEL triggers a natural bodily response to send more resources to bone in the area around your teeth, simulating a state of growth that will help the teeth move faster. In order to activate that response, the PROPEL device is designed to create micro-osteoperforations (MOPs) in the gums and bone surrounding your teeth. MOPs are basically small holes, which are perfectly harmless to your gums, bone, and teeth, but will trigger an immune response from the body. As your body heals these MOPs, your teeth will start to move faster thanks to the extra resources that your smile is getting, combined with the small amounts of pressure from braces or Invisalign. You’ll be having your braces removed or completing the very last set of aligners in no time!

Is PROPEL A Good Fit For Me?

While PROPEL can be used in a wide range of cases to accelerate braces and Lawrence Invisalign treatment—it is not right for everyone. A consultation with us here at Hamilton, Wilson & Hendrickson Orthodontics will allow us to determine if Topeka PROPEL is right for you. Out of all our patients, about 80% have been ideal candidates for PROPEL treatment.
