"Great!!! Staff is so wonderful. Dr. Durbin did a great job with my daughters teeth. She has a beautiful smile."- T.P. / Google / Aug 20, 2017
"The professionals working at Kentucky Orthodontics and Invisalign were nothing short of phenomenal from my very first visit to my last. Everyone was very personable and welcoming from the orthodontists, to the dental hygienist, to the front desk receptionists. Each session the orthodontists and dental hygienists were very thorough with my treatment plan and made the necessary adjustments to ensure that I didn’t just have a good smile but a great smile. As with anything in life, the amount of work that you put in will ultimately determine your final outcome. My particular treatment was Invisalign which required me to wear my retainers 20-22 hours per day. I’ll admit at times it wasn’t easy but i knew that if I followed the individualized treatment plan provided to me that I would ultimately achieve my desired smile. Now that I have completed the treatment I can honestly say that I couldn’t be more happy with my smile and it’s all thanks to the professionals at Kentucky Orthodontics and Invisalign! I would highly recommend Kentucky Orthodontics and Invisalign to anyone wanting to achieve a great smile!"- B.E. / Google / Nov 06, 2018
"Dr. Durbin asked me to write a review up after my treatment had started and finished, but I was so impressed with the entire staff that I am writing a review now. I highly recommend this office, even though I currently have nothing being done to my teeth. They are very professional and friendly. Can't wait to see how great my teeth look."- D.A. / Google / Oct 30, 2018
"I’ve been a patient of Dr. Durbin’s for going on 10 years now, and am continuously impressed with the services he has provided (braces, invisalign, retainers, etc.), the friendly office staff and the welcoming environment. If you have been searching for an orthodontist, look no further! Dr. Durbin and his team truly care about each patient’s long term success and work hard/efficiently to ensure positive results are achieved. Dr. Durbin and staff, thank you for giving me a smile I am more than proud to show off!"- R.L. / Google / Oct 19, 2018
"As a person who had Conventional braces as a teenager and didn’t wear my retainer as I should, I found later in life that due to grinding my teeth and dealing with Trigeminal Neuralgia my teeth had shifted and I was unhappy with the results. Drs. Durban, Morris and staff provided me with Invisalign’s. They are so knowledgeable, caring and considerate. I was able to get my teeth straightened with Invisalign’s and they had the knowledge to deal with a rotated tooth and bring it back into line. I am so happy with the results and glad I made the call to Kentucky Orthodontics & Invisalign to change the way I feel about my teeth and smile!!"- P.K. / Google / Sep 16, 2018
VPro5 is a part of Propel's long line of orthodontic products and is an FDA-compliant Class I medical device. It is a hand-held mouthpiece that accelerates bone movement by producing micopulses, which causes the aligners or braces to fit better. This process speeds up treatment time by up to 50%, which is very appealing to those who have to wear braces or aligners for 12 – 18 months. It is also less invasive than other orthodontic accelerating treatments.
What To Expect
Once you have completed your orthodontic exam and your Invisalign, ClearCorrect, or metal braces are in place, you will be provided with a VPro5 device that can be used in the comfort of your own home. The VPro5 should be worn for 5 minutes everyday, but you may wear the device up to twice a day if you prefer. If you decide to wear the device twice a day, allow yourself some time between sessions. When you are ready to use the VPro5, simply place the mouthpiece into your mouth, bite down, and press the power button. A blue light will flash, which will indicate the start of the session. Once the session is complete, a green light will flash 3 times. You will then remove the device from your mouth and detach the mouth piece from the battery.
Since the VPro5 produces micopulses or tiny vibrations to increase teeth movement, you may experience mild dizziness or nausea after using the device. This is normal and should subside within a few minutes following your session. You should thoroughly rinse your mouthpiece after each treatment to ensure proper oral hygiene.
Some patients have reported that the VPro5 helps with easing the tension they feel with Invisalign or metal braces because it causes a better fit. Others say that they can sometimes experience slight discomfort because they can feel their teeth moving at a faster rate.
