Is there pain or discomfort with PROPEL?

With Propel micro-osteoperforations, there is no significant recovery time, and little pain associated with treatment. Your doctor can apply a topical anesthetic for gum comfort. There are no nerve endings in the bone.

Tylenol, or acetaminophen, is recommended in the unlikely event that the patient feels any discomfort after Propel. Anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS), such as aspirin or ibuprofen, should be avoided as they may dampen the tooth movement biology that we are trying to stimulate.
