The C-Shaped Vibration Device is an orthodontic accessory intended for use during orthodontic treatment. It is used in conjunction with orthodontic appliances such as braces and clear aligner therapies to help facilitate tooth movement. The C-Shaped Vibration Devices should be used for a total of 5 minutes per day in a single session. The propel VPro5 is an innovative orthodontic device that uses high-frequency vibrations to complement your clear aligner therapy. Used for only 5 minutes per day, the VPro5 vibrates gently to help ensure that aligners are fully engaged with secure seating.
Propel was developed at New York University School of Dentistry. The controlled clinical trial demonstrating a doubling of the rate of tooth movement was published in the American Journal of Orthodontic in November 2013.
Gentle tooth vibration is a popular method that is being widely used to accelerate orthodontic treatment. For many years, scientific research conducted has shown that vibrations stimulate bone remodelling (which is the basis of orthodontic tooth movement). Propel works with both braces and Sequential Aligner Treatment, Propel’s vibration device has an additional effect by better seating the aligners. When wearing aligners for orthodontic treatment, well-fitting aligners contributes greatly to the success of treatment. Propel’s gentle vibration moves the aligners to fit better than what is achieved by normal wear. Patients that use vibration technology typically change their aligners every 7 to 10 days, rather than the standard 14 days.
Patients who are on the chronic steroids or non-steroidal anti-inflammatories are NOT ideal candidates.
