Dr Spannahke provides PROPEL Orthodontics to help facilitate and expedite the orthodontic process, especially in adult patients whose avuncular bone can no longer produce new bone to accommodate shifting teeth. The PROPEL system will help both your teeth shift and tissues heal faster than they ever could with orthodontic treatment alone. PROPEL Orthodontics can also help produce faster results in patients whose bone growth is still active, such as in teens and young adults.
The PROPEL System uses a procedures called Alveocentesis to make orthodontic systems, such as Invisalign and traditional braces, more efficient. Alveocentesis stimulates the production of alveolar bone in the maxilla and mandible, the upper and lower jaw, so as teeth shift into alignment, the bone that holds teeth in place can better adjust to shifting teeth, An increasing number of adults are seeking the variety of orthodontic treatments available to straighten their teeth, A classically beautiful smile can improve your life socially, psychologically, and functionally, but at such an advanced stage orthodontically, adults can only hope to achieve growth and bone development through orthognathic surgery.
Many adults can receive orthodontic treatments without the worry of bone growth or development and still achieve beautiful results, but severe malocclusion, such as overbite or cross bite, may provide an added concern during orthodontic treatments. In addition to less bone development, adults heal more slowly, and their teeth shift at a slower rate.
PROPEL Orthodontics can help with all of these factors while on your journey to achieve a perfect smile.
