For faster tooth movement and less discomfort during your orthodontic treatment, board-certified orthodontist Dr. Saoly Benson offers in-office treatments with the Propel Excellerator. The Propel Excellerator creates manual micro-osteoperforations, also known as "dental dimples." The micro-osteoperforations stimulate blood flow and cytokines to the treated area that help bone remodeling and tooth movement. Used with braces or removable aligners, the Propel Excellerator can shorten treatment time and helps to decrease discomfort. To learn more about adding a treatment with the Propel Excellerator to your braces or removable aligners, schedule a consultation with Dr. Benson at her practice, The Art of Braces, in Las Vegas, NV.
"Thank you to The Art of Braces for making this smile even more beautiful and making the experience of having braces so positive that Sofia did want to take them off! To top it off Sofia even got a special board from Dr Benson and her staff! ??????"- N.B. / Facebook / Feb 05, 2019
"I had a lower permanent retainer for over 20+ years (how did I age this much?), it broke and I had another orthodontist in town replace it. This one only lasted a couple years and broke on me. I called them to have it replaced and apparently he does not do permanent retainers any longer. I looked around to find someone that did and came across Dr. Benson-yay!The staff is very friendly and welcoming. Every person there was very professional and kind. Dr. Benson and I discussed my lower retainer and she called every lab she could to find a similar to my original retainer since I loved it so much! When I came in for the replacement installation, it was quick and easy. You can tell that Dr. Benson is very knowledgeable. She was the one that did my install and was very gentle. The new permanent retainer is nicer than the last one I had, and was very smooth unlike my last one. It actually feels like my original one that I loved so much. It is very nice that Dr. Benson took the time to listen and execute on finding something that would fit what I was looking for. If you want someone that is knowledgeable, cares and willing to go the extra mile for you-this is your place. You won’t regret it. Highly recommend!"- T.B. / Yelp / Apr 29, 2021
"They do the very best job on working on my braces as well as having such nice and amazing staff. I have seen great improvement to my teeth, especially because whenever I have a bracket that has broken off, they are one text away from scheduling me to get it fixed."- L.J. / Yelp / Feb 09, 2021
"As a patient in treatment, I've been delightfully surprised how quality of care and patient experience consistently warrant a 5-star review. I believe it's a reflection of such a special team behind Dr. Benson. Marlou was simply exceptional! Extremely fast, intentionally accurate, all of which was wrapped with thoughtfulness and care. The Art of Braces is certainly fortunate to have her. Thank you Marlou!"- B.B. / Google / Feb 02, 2021
"I highly recommend the art of braces . The girls are all so kind and detail oriented with what they do, I always feel like I’m in safe hands. My smile has never been more beautiful thanks to the treatment Dr. Benson chose for me, my braces have been on for maybe 4-5 months and my teeth have already straightened significantly. This lady knows what she’s doin. Also this goes without saying, out of the technicians a girl that stands out, and goes above and beyond to make me feel welcomed is Sarah Joy! She’s so enthusiastic about the progress my teeth make, and she is always so kind and pleasant to talk to. I can tell she genuinely cares and that means a lot to me! I’ve had nothing but great experiences at my appointments, I look forward to the rest!"- M.C. / Facebook / Dec 24, 2020
The Propel Excellerator can help with your regular orthodontic treatment, whether you are using removable aligners, clear ceramic braces, Traditional Metal Braces, or lingual braces. The Excellerator may be recommended by Dr. Benson if you have an open bite, crossbite, a deep bite, crowded teeth, or large gaps between your teeth. During your initial orthodontic consultation, Dr. Benson will discuss adding the Propel Excellerator to your regular treatment for faster tooth movement.
What to Expect
Your Excellerator treatment can be performed during your regular appointment. First, Dr. Benson will have you rinse your mouth with chlorhexidine (an antiseptic). Next, she will apply local anesthesia to numb the treatment areas. Once your mouth is clean and prepared, Dr. Benson will use the Excellerator to create dental dimples at the appropriate depth for your needs. The process should only take a few minutes.
After your Excellerator treatment, you may have minor bleeding and inflammation in your gums. You may take over-the-counter acetaminophen (Tylenol), but you should not take nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs, like Advil or Aspirin). A single treatment with Propel Excellerator is usually enough for most patients. However, some patients may need multiple treatments, scheduled 6 – 8 weeks apart. After your first treatment, Dr. Benson will assess your results and determine if more treatments are needed.
Dr. Benson will discuss the cost of adding a Propel Excellerator treatment during your initial consultation. To make it easier to afford this advanced treatment, The Art of Braces accepts many payment methods and we offer no-interest financing with flexible payment plans. If you have dental insurance with orthodontic benefits, our office will contact your provider to determine if your Propel Excellerator treatments are covered.
To make your teeth move into place quickly and comfortably, consider adding a treatment with the Propel Excellerator. By creating micro-osteoperforations, the Excellerator helps your teeth move into their new position. To learn more about Propel Excellerator in-office treatments, schedule a consultation with Dr. Saoly Benson at The Art of Braces in Las Vegas, NV.
