Accelerated Invisalign Treatment: Get A Straight Smile Faster

The fact that you’ve come across this means that you might have considered taking up an Invisalign treatment or any other alternative but are worried about the length of time the procedures to achieve desired results. There are many groundbreaking technologies that now allow you to fix your smile faster than you ever could. In this article, we talk about what accelerated Invisalign treatment entails and the best way to go about it.

Can You Speed up the Invisalign Process?

Wearing your clear aligners for however long your dentist or orthodontist recommends every day is one of the quickest and easiest ways you can expedite your Invisalign treatment. In general, patients are advised to wear their aligners for about 22 hours a day.

There are several reasons why you may want to expedite your treatment. Numerous technological breakthroughs have increased the rate at which bone can remodel and thus the rate at which teeth can move through the bone. The use of specific-frequency vibration to help stimulate bone metabolism and improve healing has been well-established and used in osteopathic (bone) surgeries for decades and has found its way into orthodontics.

A notable example is cyclic loading (vibration) appliances, which induce bone remodeling cells to speed tooth movement. These are known as micro-osteoperforations.

Popular Tools for Accelerated Invisalign Treatment


VPro5 is an easy-to-use, take-home bite-tray that oscillates at a set frequency. The VPro5 requires only 5 minutes of use per day and can be used with both Invisalign and braces. VPRO5 is popular among Invisalign users because it ensures that your aligners are seated as closely as possible around your teeth, increasing the grip of the aligners on your teeth and, as a result, reducing treatment time.

Advantages and Features of Vpro5

  • Treatment time is reduced.
  • Adjustments to the aligner and braces resulted in increased comfort.
  • Aligners are made to fit better on the teeth.
  • It integrates seamlessly with other systems.
  • Wear time is only 5 minutes.
  • Light notifications that are intuitive for easy operation.

While many of us are ready to straighten our teeth, the length of time we’ll have to wear the braces or Invisalign prevents us from starting the treatment. Even the thought of having something on your teeth when you smile for even a week makes us feel uneasy, particularly adults. Wearing this portable, hands-free device for only 5 minutes per day can cut your orthodontic treatment time by up to 50%! The Propel VPro5 is an invaluable addition to your Invisalign clear aligners so that you get things done faster.

How To Operate the Vpro5?

The VPro5 is very simple to use, and the treatment procedures can be done by almost anyone anywhere. The summarized steps include :

  1. Connect the mouthpiece to the oscillator’s base.
  2. Bite down on the mouthpiece of your Invisalign aligners and press the white button to turn the device on.
  3. The VPro5 will gradually ramp-up to full vibration. Maintain the same bite pressure throughout the treatment.
  4. The device will vibrate for 5 minutes before turning off.
  5. After each use, remove the mouthpiece, rinse, and then dry it.

What Is Micro-osteoperforation?

Micro-Osteoperforation (MOPs) is a technique used to speed up the movement of teeth. It has been shown to speed up treatment by up to 62 percent by increasing the activity of cytokines, which speeds up the remodeling of the alveolar bone (the alveolar bone is the area that contains the tooth sockets).

Bone remodeling allows for more tooth movement in a shorter amount of time. The previous, more invasive surgical techniques are now being replaced with small, shallow micro-osteoperforations in the alveolar bone, eliminating the need for bone grafting, soft tissue incisions, and stitching. 

When an orthodontic force is applied to the teeth, alveocentesis stimulates the alveolar bone.

How Does Micro-osteoperforation Speed Up Invisalign Treatment?

MOPs stimulate faster tooth movement on a cellular level by utilizing your body’s biology. It does this by accelerating bone remodeling through vibrations that trigger healing and bone-building hormones.

The most recent advancements in accelerated orthodontics include advancements in brace design to facilitate a simpler treatment in the form of self-ligating braces. There are also new treatment methods with surgical aids (corticotomies and osteotomies to accelerate orthodontics). The most recent research and innovation have shown that inflammatory biological mechanisms can be stimulated to speed up bone remodeling and growth during tooth repositioning.

 The procedure is used for 80 percent of orthodontic patients and can be used in conjunction with any mode of treatment.

Benefits and Features of MOP

  • Fewer consultations
  • Release obstinate or difficult tooth movements
  • More rapid Invisalign aligner changes
  • It accelerates brace adjustments
  • Invasiveness is minimized.
  • There are no gum incisions or stitches during the procedures.

The Advantages of the Micro-osteoperforation Technique

The longer a procedure takes, the greater the risk of infection and other complications. Micro-osteoperforations reduce this risk, as well as other complications associated with long-term orthodontic treatments, such as decalcification and tartar accumulation due to the inability to brush well. Micro-osteoperforation makes sure patients can finish the treatments and return to their normal life routines on time.

Frequently Asked Questions Regarding Vpro5

Can you use Vpro5 more than once a day?

In general, Vpro should not be used for more than 5 minutes a day. The only exception is when your orthodontist explicitly states otherwise and in those scenarios, a well-explained schedule would be given to you.

What age is accelerated Invisalign treatment suitable for?

Adults are the most suited for accelerated Invisalign treatment. This is because their tissue is typically less active and traditional methods will take a noticeably longer time. 

Is it bad to speed up my Invisalign treatment?

It is not bad to speed up your treatment as long as it is done the right way and according to the orthodontist’s plan. Remember, don’t skip trays because it could cause you pain and end up making the teeth worse.
