Accelerated OrthodonticsAchieve Your Desired Smile in Less Time

Dr. DiFranco knows that most people don’t relish the idea of spending years in braces. At DiFranco Orthodontics, you won’t have to! We are proud to offer our patients the opportunity to take advantage of state-of-the-art orthodontic technology that speeds up tooth movement. If you are looking to expedite your orthodontic treatment, try accelerated orthodontics in Park Ridge and Norridge, IL including Propel and Invisalign®.

What Is Propel?

Propel treatment provides innovative devices and procedures to shift teeth more quickly and comfortably than ordinary treatment. In certain cases, Dr. DiFranco will recommend the use of Propel in combination with current orthodontic treatments, including Invisalign and traditional braces, to help move teeth into their desired position – up to 64% faster than teeth can move with clear aligners and traditional braces alone.

Propel treatment works by removing some of the external surfaces of the bone. The bone then goes through a phase where the mineral content is temporarily decreased. The tissue of the bone releases rich deposits of calcium, and new bone begins to mineralize. While in this transition phase, bone is softer and there is less resistance for the existing braces, allowing them to move quickly.


Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign straightens your teeth without wires and brackets, using a series of clear, customized, removable appliances called aligners. It’s virtually undetectable, which means hardly anyone will know that you’re straightening your teeth.

With Invisalign, patients typically experience results in a fraction of the time when compared to traditional braces. You will also enjoy shorter orthodontic appointments as no adjustments are needed like with regular braces. When you visit our office, we simply check how the straightening process is progressing, and send you on your way with a few sets of the next aligners you need to wear. It’s that easy!
