Propel Orthodontics Reviews
"Dr. Durban and his staff are wonderful. They answered all questions and helped me on my way to a better smile. Having completed my treatment, I am very pleased with the results. Would highly recommend them to anyone considering orthodontics."- R.K. / Google / Nov 11, 2016
"I had my own braces done by Dr. Durbin more than 20 years ago. His professionalism and experience educating me along the way made my decision to have my own kids' braces done by him an easy one. Both my daughters have had fantastic care and with the same thoughtful education along the way. In fact, one daughter is now seriously considering orthodontics as a career path. Finally, I continue care with Dr. Durbin for TMJ care which has been top notch."- K.S. / Google / Nov 11, 2016
"Dr. Durbin has been a great orthodontist! He helped fix my bite, helped me to stop tongue thrusting, and straightened my teeth. I would definitely recommend him and Clear Choice Orthodontics!"- L.K. / Google / Jul 11, 2016
"I must share my great appreciation for Dr. Durbin and his courteous, diligent staff. We were very pleased with the other Dr.'s we saw there, as well, but were most acquainted with Dr. Durbin. His staff could not have been more organized and helpful. As a bonus, the rates with this practice were more affordable than others I found in our area, and with greater professionalism than I felt when visiting other offices for consultations. The sincere interest Dr. Durbin exhibits when talking with his patients, no matter their age, and in the way he caringly teaches his staff along the way, indicates the integrity and respect he has for his profession. My daughter now has a gorgeous smile! We are very thankful for the outstanding service Kentucky Orthodontics provided!"- C.R. / Google / Aug 20, 2017

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.
