Battiste Orthodontics uses Propel Orthodontics’ VPro5 with a majority of patients

The American Association of Orthodontics reports that about four million Americans wear braces. Normally orthodontic treatments bring to mind kids or teens and a mouthful of metal brackets. But, this is no longer always the case as more adults seek straighter teeth and alternatives to traditional braces have been introduced. Schenectady Pediatric Dentistry and Battiste Orthodontics, offers cutting-edge treatments plans for patients to achieve desired results including integrating Propel Orthodontics’ VPro5 into the majority of adult’s and children’s therapies.

The VPro5 is a high frequency vibration mouthpiece that is used in conjunction with clear aligners. Patients wear it for five minutes at a time to seat aligners properly on the teeth to help achieve desired results.

Dr. Matt Battiste, co-owner of Schenectady Pediatric Dentistry and Battiste Orthodontics, is excited by advanced orthodontic technology. Since opening Schenectady Pediatric Dentistry and Battiste Orthodontics with his wife, Dr. Lindsey Battiste about three and a half years ago, he has used micro-vibration on close to 100 patients to accelerate their orthodontic treatment.

“I like to recommend the VPro5 to any of my patients who would benefit from using it in conjunction with their clear aligners,” said Dr. Battiste. “Because the VPro5 helps the trays seat and align optimally on the teeth, patients achieve better compliance, helping to keep them on track with the plan. This is extremely motivating for patients and provides them with a positive outlook on their treatment, which benefits everyone.”

Schenectady Pediatric Dentistry and Battiste Orthodontics is located on the border of Niskayuna and Schenectady, NY. For more information or appointment scheduling, visit: For more information about Propel’s orthodontic technologies, please visit:
