What is PROPEL Accelerated Orthodontics?

Instead of relying only on braces, aligners or other orthodontic appliance to move the teeth, we utilize the innovative PROPEL system to stimulate the growth of the jawbone. By tapping into the patient’s own biology, we can stimulate the bone around the teeth to move the teeth faster than what is traditionally possible with braces or aligners alone.

With PROPEL, patients can significantly reduce the time they have to spend wearing orthodontic appliances. SInce PROPEL reduces treatment time  by approximately 50 percent, patients choosing this option can enjoy having fewer orthodontic appointments for more convenient treatment. 

How PROPEL Works

Dr. Choonara creates tiny micro-pierces in the jawbone near each tooth where advanced movement is desired, using a disposable, one-time use device. This device comes with a built-in, adjustable depth dial to assist Dr. Choonara in precisely controlling how deep the small surgical steel tip penetrates. With its ergonomic design, he has complete control over the device, resulting in a procedure that is virtually painless. The entire procedure only takes a few short minutes to complete, making it a small time investment for achieving a perfectly healthy and attractive smile faster than ever before possible.
