Do you long for a bright, straight, beautiful smile?

You’re not alone. Many adults are opting to invest in orthodontic treatment. Some had braces back in their youth but might not have been as diligent as necessary with maintenance protocols. Still, others either didn’t get the opportunity or opted out of it due to aesthetics.

These days, adults can have their cake and eat it too with Invisalign® for adults, especially when coupled with a new product called Propel®.

Discreet, Overnight Braces: Why Use Propel® with Invisalign® for Adults

The main reason why so many adults opt for Invisalign® orthodontic treatment is that they get to straighten their teeth without having to wear metal braces. Invisalign® straightens your teeth using clear aligners, which you change every few weeks.

In many cases, Invisalign® for adults is a faster, more aesthetically pleasing option. Plus, you’re allowed to remove the aligners for up to two hours per day, allowing you to eat in comfort and practice dental homecare with ease.

Propel® – Taking Invisalign® Treatment to the Next Level

Check with your orthodontist to see if they utilize a product called Propel® in conjunction with Invisalign® aligners.

Propel® allows you to limit how long you need to wear your clear aligners. Instead of having to wear them for 22 hours each day, you can simply wear them overnight.

How it works:

  • After dinner, brush and floss your teeth
  • Put in your Invisalign® trays
  • Place the Propel® device over your aligners and wear it for five minutes
  • When finished, keep your Invisalign® trays in as part of your overnight orthodontic care
  • When you wake up in the morning, remove your aligners and clean them
  • Make sure you plug the Propel® device in so it can charge

The Propel® device uses vibration to gently encourage your teeth to move. Overnight braces can be just as effective as aligners alone, too, so you don’t have to worry that you’ll undergo orthodontic treatment any longer than is necessary.

Overnight orthodontic care is ideal as you don’t have to worry about:

  • Learning how to talk with your aligners
  • Taking the aligners out to eat and forgetting to put them back in
  • Losing your aligners
