PROPEL Orthodontics

Propel Logo

In our continuous effort to provide the best orthodontic care for our patients, we are excited to offer PROPEL technology in our practice. PROPEL is a mini-surgical procedure that stimulates bone remodeling by making micro-osteoperforations in the bone between the roots of the teeth to create inflammation. Tooth movement is an inflammatory process so by making these perforations, bone remodels quicker which allows the teeth to move faster and more predictably into their ideal position.

This innovative technology allows Dr. Bella Shen Garnett to finish treatment more effectively and efficiently. That means less time in treatment for both patients in traditional braces or with the use of Invisalign® aligners. Drs. Bella Shen Garnett and Dr. Kimberly Mahood have done more PROPEL procedures than any other practice in the United States. Patients will finish their treatment with exceptional results in less time and with fewer treatment visits.

Why should I consider PROPEL Orthodontics?

Having the PROPEL procedure done not only allows you to change our Invisalign aligners every 5 days versus 14 days but it also allows us to distalize teeth to resolove crowding and fix the bite without needing to extract any teeth.  

PROPEL has enabled Dr. Garnett to utilize Invisalign to correct very difficult tooth movements that were once thought not possible to treat with Invisalign alone. In some complex cases, Dr. Garnett is now able to treat cases without surgery or using traditional braces!

An increasing number of adults are seeking the variety of orthodontic treatments available to straighten their teeth. So why not get treated now and in half the time?

PROPEL can be completed chairside in minutes by Dr. Bella Shen Garnett and yields little discomfort to the patient. There is zero recovery time and patients are able to return to their normal daily routine immediately!

With PROPEL Orthodontics, Dr. Bella Shen Garnett can help:

  • Align teeth faster
  • Stimulate alveolar bone development
  • Cut your orthodontic treatment time in half!
