Did you know that our very own Dr. Emery recently went through an Invisalign treatment to straighten her smile? She was curious to see whether combining Invisalign and Propel would make a difference, and if so, how much of a difference. If you’re curious to find out what she thought about the Propel VPro5, keep reading!
Invisalign Will Help You Love Your Smile
Invisalign is designed to straighten your smile using a series of trays that gradually shift your teeth into proper alignment. This process happens slowly over many months using a series of Invisalign trays that fit over your teeth. Each tray is designed to straighten your teeth ever so slightly, and after you’ve gone through the process, you’re left with a beautiful, straight smile!
The aligners are comfortable and easily removable when you need to eat, brush, or floss your teeth. The Invisalign trays are virtually unnoticeable to others, unlike traditional metal braces.
How Do Invisalign and Propel Work Together?
Invisalign trays are designed to wear for two weeks. After that, you advance to the next tray in the series. The entire process, from start to finish, can take anywhere from With the Propel VPro5, Dr. Emery was able to wear her aligners for 3-5 days, rather than the traditional two weeks.
All you have to do is wear the Propel device with your Invisalign tray for five minutes each night. There’s even a convenient light that keeps track of the time for you! It creates a real gentle vibration that helps your tray fit better which is important when you’re moving through the trays more quickly.
Does It Hurt and More Importantly, Does it Work?
Some people feel a little bit of pressure when transitioning over to a new Invisalign tray, but generally, there is no pain. The Propel VPro5 device can help minimize any discomfort by helping to shift your teeth a little more quickly, allowing your trays to fit better. The actual vibration caused by the Propel doesn’t hurt at all.
Dr. Emery definitely feels the Propel VPro5 works, and not only that, it’s the easiest way to speed up the process of your Invisalign treatment. She is a firm believer in combining the power of Invisalign and Propel to get a straighter smile faster, and without the discomfort and self-consciousness that comes with metal braces.
The Propel VPro5 is a light, totally portable device that you can charge in a standard USB charger, which makes it easy to use and take anywhere!
