Propel Shortens Orthodontic Treatment Time

There have been many advances in orthodontic treatments in recent years, but few can shorten the length of your treatment time. Dr. L. Douglas Knight is pleased to announce that Knight Orthodontics now offers a treatment that uses your body’s own healing mechanisms to speed up the pace of orthodontic treatments, so your new smile can emerge even faster!

The Propel system is a complement to any form of orthodontics, which can work with both traditional braces as well as clear aligner systems. There are two components to Propel, the VPro5tm and the Excelleratortm. Both of these treatments require a very short time commitment from patients, and can result in drastically reduced treatment periods. Your teeth will shift into more optimal positions faster, and get you to your smile goals in record time.

Propel VPro5tm

This treatment is a small device you use for just five minutes a day, at your convenience. The VPro5tm consists of a mouthpiece and oscillator, which delivers high frequency vibrations to increase blood flow to the areas surrounding your orthodontic work. It jump-starts your body’s healing processes, to get your teeth moving and stabilized in their more ideal positions. The best part about the VPro5tm is that is can reduce your orthodontic treatment time by up to 40 percent with regular daily use.

To use the VPro5tm:

  1. Connect mouthpiece to oscillator base.
  2. Bite down on the mouthpiece when vibration is at its peak.
  3. Continue to bite down as you wear the device for 5 minutes.
  4. Rinse the mouthpiece when finished.

This system is small, low maintenance, and is easily portable. Use it when you travel or when relaxing at home. Because the oscillator base is a charged device, you don’t need to be near an electrical source to make it work. With regular use, your mouth will feel better during treatment and reveal a beautiful new smile sooner than you expected!

Propel Excelleratortm

This treatment is a chair-side service that speeds up orthodontic treatments by stimulating the body’s biological inflammatory response. Small Propel drivers perform a procedure called micro-osteoperforation (MOP) to incite faster bone remodeling and accelerated movement of the teeth.

MOP is performed in Dr. Knight’s office, using a local anesthetic and can take only a short period of time. The best part of this complementary treatment is that it is only required once or twice during your orthodontic treatment to give you maximum benefits. The procedure can be performed during your routine appointments, since it only takes a few extra minutes.

As a result of this easy treatment, your orthodontic treatment will move at a faster pace. For example, Propel Excelleratortm has been known to allow Invisalign patients to change their aligner trays in only 3-7 days, rather than 14 days. That’s a 50-80 percent reduction in treatment time.

Dr. Knight did an awesome job on our child’s teeth. Other Orthodontists said the job couldn’t be done. Dr Knight not only said he could do it, he took away all our concerns. We highly recommend Knight Orthodontics!!

I went in for a permanent retainer repair for the first time with Dr. Knight, and had a wonderful experience. I'm new to Kentucky and he talked with me like he new me for years, he was so personable and took the time to get to know me. He had never worked on my teeth before but knew exactly what to do to re-straighten them and get a retainer back in. There is no "new patient" fee which is always nice. He seems to truly care about his patients' smile (teeth) and I will continue to come back to him for any orthodontic care.

My issue was more complicated than simply braces to straighten teeth - it included extensive jaw advancement surgery as well. Dr Knight and his staff were great through the entire 18 month process - always available, always willing to answer any questions and they also maintained constant communication with the surgeon so that everyone was always on the same page which was very comforting.

I have enjoyed my second round of wearing braces. He has done an excellent job correcting my bite and the time flew by. Before I knew it, my braces were coming off. Dr. Knight and his team really care and take an interest. I used the emergency number, after hours, and Dr. Knight was there for me. When my children come to the point in their life when they will need orthodontics, I will make their appointments with Dr. Knight! Thank you, Dr. Knight and team!

I've been coming to Knight Orthodontics since I was in grade school. The team is so friendly and professional, you will always be greeted with a smile. Dr. Knight and his incredible staff make me feel right at home. Dr. Knight has done an amazing job not just on my own teeth, but on my mom and brother's as well. I highly recommend this office!
