Faster, more predictable treatment with MOPs

Airway and Sleep Group is proud to offer the Propel® Excellerator® Series, the first and only product line cleared by the FDA for use

In MOPs. While patient results may vary, adding MOPs to your orthodontic journey will allow you to reach your ideal smile up to 2.3x faster than orthodontics alone.

What is MOPs?

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.

Simple In-Office Treatment

We can complete a MOPs application in a matter of minutes during a regularly scheduled appointment. It is performed in 3 easy steps, 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 MOPs or “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, MOPs may

help you reach your smile goals quicker. The MOPs 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.
