Get faster, more predictable orthodontic treatment with Micro-Osteoperforation (Dental Dimples) at Grace Kerr Orthodontics!
Dr. Kerr is proud to offer the Propel® Excellerator® Series, the first and only product line cleared by the FDA for use in Micro-Osteoperforation (Dental Dimples). While patient results may vary, adding Dental Dimples to your orthodontic journey will allow you to reach your ideal smile up to 2.3x faster than orthodontics alone.
What are Dental Dimples?
Micro-Osteoperforation is a technique that stimulates bone remodeling, allowing the teeth to move faster and more predictably into their ideal position. This innovative technology gives our team a way to help patients finish braces or clear aligner treatment more effectively and efficiently.
Micro-Osteoperforation was concluded to be “an effective, comfortable procedure to accelerate tooth movement” in a 20 subject, randomized, controlled single-blind study conducted at NYU.
Quick and Easy
There are 3 easy steps for the Dental Dimple application, allowing you to get back to your busy schedule in no time!
Step 1: Evaluate the treatment area
Step 2: Rinse with Chlorhexidine and apply an anesthetic
Step 3: Create the “dental dimples” in areas requiring stimulation
Is it Right for Me?
Whether you’re getting ready to start your orthodontic journey or are already in active treatment, Dental Dimples may help you reach your orthodontic goals quicker. The technique works with your own biology by stimulating the bone surrounding the teeth. In most cases, you will be able to finish treatment with exceptional results in less time and fewer treatment visits.
