In our continuous effort to provide the very best in orthodontic treatment for our patients, we are proud to be the first office in El Paso to offer PROPEL®, an advanced orthodontic technique that works with your braces or aligners to fast track your orthodontic treatment. Dr. Teng is a PROPEL® Orthodontics provider, so you can enjoy that perfect smile faster than ever before.
If you’re interested in improving the aesthetics of your smile, but are put off by the thought of having to spend years in braces, PROPEL could be right for you. This allows you to see your new smile faster and requires fewer visits to our office. This exciting technology allows us to get most patients finished in about half the usual time.
PROPEL® works with the your own biology to stimulate the bone surrounding your teeth. PROPEL can be completed chair-side in minutes by Dr. Teng and yields little discomfort to the patient. There is minimal recovery time and the patients are able to return to their normal daily routine immediately! We provide PROPEL for both Invisalign and braces, offering complimentary consultations to all. If you would like to accelerate your orthodontic treatment today, then ask us about PROPEL today!
Unlike traditional treatment, with archwires bent by hand, SureSmile utilizes robotic technology to bend a shape-memory alloy archwire specifically to your prescribed treatment. This delivers the gentle forces to your teeth necessary to move them directly to where they should be, leaving you with a happier, healthier smile in a shorter time than traditional orthodontics.
The shape-memory wire is inserted into your brackets and activated by your body head. The custom bends in the wire have the treatment plan embedded in them, letting the wire “remember” your treatment plan.
SureSmile archwires do not actually move your teeth any faster than conventional wires do. The movements are simply more precise. There is, therefore, no risk of damaging your teeth due to faster movements.
