What is Propel Orthodontics?

At Kentucky Orthodontics & Invisalign, we offer Propel orthodontics to provide the best care possible for our patients. Propel orthodontics features innovative devices like the VPro5 to accelerate teeth movement for faster results. This modern technology allows for more effective treatment for patients with Invisalign, ClearCorrect, or traditional metal braces. With the VPro5, patients will be able to achieve their desired outcome in less time and with fewer office visits. Other benefits include more predictability, less refinements, greater comfort, and higher patient satisfaction. Dr. Durbin is continually researching the latest technology and techniques to provide the best treatment for our Kentucky patients.

What is VPro5?

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.

How Does the VPro 5 Work?

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.

Am I A Candidate For VPRO5?

Ideal candidates for the VPro5 device include children, teenagers, and adults who are currently undergoing orthodontic treatment to straighten their teeth. This includes patients using ClearCorrect, Invisalign, and traditional metal braces. The VPro5 helps patients speed up their treatment effects to achieve straighter teeth in less time. VPro5 is perfect for those who want:

  • A shorter treatment time
  • More comfort
  • Predictable results
  • Fewer office visits
  • Higher overall satisfaction with results

What REsults Can I Expect from the VPro 5?

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.
