To help expedite the orthodontic treatment process, we also utilize two technologies that promote more rapid tooth movement to reduce the complete treatment time.
Another excellent implementation within our practice is the VPro+. The VPro is a lightweight tool that can easily be used at home or on the go. Utilizing the VPro+ is very simple and is only recommended for use five minutes per day!
The VPRo is a “U” shaped mechanism that is placed between one’s upper and lower teeth while it vibrates. The VPro is most beneficial coupled with alveoloplasty procedure but also has accomplishments of its own. When a patient is in orthodontic care, the VPros vibration technology can aid in more rapid tooth movement. Its high-frequency vibration assists in activating the bone.
VPRo+ is a vibration technology that can promote more rapid tooth movement. It is a lightweight tool that provides high-frequency vibration which stimulates the bone, allowing more rapid tooth movement.
MOPS is an alveoloplasty technique with the purpose of accelerating the rate of orthodontic tooth movement. It is done with Propel instrumentation. The procedure takes less than 30 minutes using a topical and local anesthetic, small indentations are made into gum tissues, stimulating the bone around the tooth where the movement is desired. This procedure can reduce the duration of orthodontic treatment by up to 50%.
