A Beautiful Smile in Less Time
Does the thought of spending years in braces scare you? You’re not alone, and you won’t need to at DiFranco Orthodontics. Dr. DiFranco offers his patients the latest in orthodontic technology that can speed up the movement of your teeth. If you’re looking for results in less time, accelerated orthodontics from Propel and Invisalign® in Park Ridge may be right for you!
One accelerated orthodontic treatment used by Dr. DiFranco is Propel. Propel treatment uses advanced devices to help shift your teeth more quickly and comfortably than braces alone. Propel will be used along with your current orthodontic treatment, including clear aligners and traditional metal braces, to help move your teeth to the desired position faster than braces alone.
Propel treatment works by removing some of the external bone surfaces, which temporarily decreases the mineral content. The bone tissue releases rich calcium deposits, which allows new bone to mineralize. While the bone is in this transition period, it is softer and there is less resistance for your braces, which allow your teeth to move quickly.
Invisalign® clear aligners allow you to straighten your teeth without the traditional wires and brackets. Invisalign® uses a series of clear aligners that are customized for you. They are virtually undetectable and are removable so your braces won’t control your life while you straighten your smile.
Invisalign® aligners can straighten teeth in a fraction of the time compared to traditional metal braces. Invisalign® aligners don’t require adjustments like traditional braces, just a change to a new set of aligners and you are ready to go!
