What is Propel and How Does it Work?

Propel® Orthodontics has an incredible line of devices. The tools work naturally with your own biology to stimulate the bone remodeling process, enabling teeth to move more quickly, predictably and comfortably. We can reduce treatment time by up to 50%. Dr. Tabakman and Dr. Bloome offer both the Propel Excellerator™ Series and Propel VPro5™.

Propel Excellerator Series

The Excellerator Series technology can be used with all types of braces and Invisalign. Your Houston or Bellaire orthodontist performs the treatment in the office at a regularly scheduled appointment in just a few minutes. The procedure is safe, gentle and you’ll experience minimal discomfort. It’s been shown to boost the rate of tooth movement by more than twofold, enabling you to finish treatment twice as fast. Propel also enhances precision for outstanding results.

Propel VPro5

Invisalign patients have the option of using the VPro5, a small, hands-free, take-home device. When you bite down on the mouthpiece, the accessory generates painless, high-frequency vibrations that improve aligner seating (how well your clear aligners fit against your teeth), allowing Invisalign to deliver forces effectively and efficiently to move the teeth exactly how we want. By using the device for just five minutes a day, you’ll experience less discomfort, faster treatment, fewer refinements and appointments, and a better outcome.
