Propel Orthodontics is a manufacturer and supplier of innovative orthodontic devices and procedures that are revolutionizing the speed and form of dental movement during orthodontic treatment.
In 2010, Propel Orthodontics developed a system for accelerating dental movement, a micro-invasive procedure that is relatively painless for the patient and requires minimal training on the part of the orthodontist; and in 2012 they began clinical studies using the Propel ® System.
The acceleration system consists of a micro-invasive procedure carried out by orthodontists, with the objective of substantially reducing the time that the teeth are moving – using a scientifically verified, innovative procedure called micro-osteoperforation™ or Alveocentesis™. The alveolar bone is stimulated in order to induce an inflammatory response that substantially accelerates movement of the tooth in the area treated. When used during active treatment, the length of time required to move the teeth has been shown to be reduced by as much as 50%.
The PROPEL system can be used with any type of orthodontics, whether vestibular brackets, invisible lingual braces or invisalign; and in any type of orthodontic movement. It may be a possible substitute for corticotomies, since it creates less risk of periodontal problems, severe bone reabsorption, or damage to teeth.
We must wait for more scientific studies to endorse the system before using it as a matter of course.
