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 with Propel Orthodontics
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.
Propel Orthodontics Aftercare
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.
