Cucalon and Matin Orthodontics in San Francisco, CA offers Accelerated Orthodontics with PROPEL, Acceledent, or OrthoPulse
Accelerated orthodontics is an approach to orthodontic care that delivers impressive results in a shorter time frame, as compared to traditional metal braces.
It has been shown that your orthodontic treatment time can be reduced from a range of 20-50 percent depending on compliance and difficulty of the orthodontic correction.
This FDA-cleared orthodontic innovation is a simple-to-use, hands-free device designed for faster orthodontic treatment with only 10 minutes of daily use.
A fast, gentle way to accelerate your orthodontic treatment. We are excited to offer accelerated orthodontic treatment with PROPEL Orthodontics! If you’re interested in improving the aesthetics of your smile, but are put off by the thought of having to spend months or even years in braces, PROPEL could be right for you.
This state-of-the-art technology speeds up tooth movement, and though every patient’s situation is different, many can now have their orthodontic treatment completed in less than a year.
PROPEL works with your own biology by stimulating the bone surrounding your teeth. It helps your teeth to move faster and more predictably into their ideal position. This allows you to see your new smile faster and requires fewer visits to our office. PROPEL can be completed right here in our office and does not require any invasive surgical procedures.
The AcceleDent™ System is light, comfortable, hands-free and can be used 20 minutes per day while engaged in a variety of daily activities. Patients have reported use while reading, watching television, listening to music and doing school work. The appliance, used daily for 20 minutes, applies patented technology to gently vibrate the teeth and surrounding bone. In a controlled clinical trial, the vibrations have proven to accelerate tooth movement by 38%-50%.
