The best treatment needs the best tech.

Temporary anchorage devices, more commonly called TADs, are titanium anchors that we can use in some cases to move teeth faster. We use these with braces to speed up treatment or as an alternative to wearing headgear.
HOW ARE TADS PLACED?
First, we administer a strong local anesthetic so that the gum tissue and jaw are numb. Once numbness takes effect, the doctor will push the TAD though the gum tissue and anchor it into the jawbone. The process is quick, and gentler than you would imagine it could be. Within about a day, the patient will adjust to it being there and no longer notice it. Removal is just as quick and easy.
PROPEL is a state-of-the-art technology that accelerates tooth movement. While results vary from patient to patient, it can help get orthodontic treatment time to finish up in less than a year.
PROPEL is designed to work with your biology to stimulate the bones and tissues around the teeth, allowing them to facilitate faster movement. We complete the PROPEL treatment in-office, so you do not need to worry about managing another device at home. It needs no recovery time and is comfortable.
