Propel Orthodontics, a manufacturer and supplier of innovative orthodontic procedures and devices that are revolutionizing the way teeth are moved in orthodontic treatment announced today the official launch of a paid clinical evaluation for its Propel System.

The Propel System is a micro-invasive procedure performed by Orthodontists to greatly reduce the time in which teeth are moved.  Through a ground-breaking scientifically proven, patented process called Micro-Osteoperforation™, the alveolar bone is stimulated to induce an inflammatory response that greatly accelerates tooth movement in the treated area.  When used during active treatment, the length of time required to move teeth has been shown to be reduced by up to 50%.  Orthodontists involved in the clinical evaluation will be compensated for their involvement.

Those interested in participating in the paid clinical evaluation and receive free product are encouraged to log onto www.propelorthodontics.com for more information.
