Uptown Houston Orthodontics
Many patients of all ages visit our team every year interested in orthodontic treatment, but for many patients, metal brackets and wires are the only option they’re familiar with. While we don’t offer traditional metallic braces at Houston Uptown Dentists, we do offer more cosmetic treatment options with the Invisalign clear plastic alignment tray system and fast orthodontic treatment for front facing teeth using Six-Month Smiles. For more professionally-minded adults especially, the thought of months or years with a mouth full of metal makes orthodontic care seem less than ideal, but with clear and tooth colored materials, Houston Uptown Dentists offers alternative solutions.
No matter what orthodontic treatment is right for your smile, Propel can make your treatment faster and more comfortable. Propel is an accelerated orthodontics option that allows patients to cut several months off of orthodontic treatment. Our bodies naturally try to reduce inflammation, but research showed that cytokines released during inflammation actually makes teeth move more quickly. Propel uses this biological response to your benefit by causing micro-osteoperforations (MOPs). These small perforations are strategically positioned to lead to inflammation and increase the release of cytokines accelerating the orthodontic process.
