Dentsply Sirona acquires assets of Propel Orthodontics

By staff writers

June 4, 2021 -- Dentsply Sirona announced it has acquired the assets of orthodontic device developer Propel Orthodontics, including the company's VPro device and Fastrack mobile app.

Company leaders said the acquisition will open up opportunities in the field of clear aligners and orthodontic treatment and will compliment Dentsply Sirona's Byte aligners, which were acquired when Dentsply Sirona bought Byte in December 2020.

Propel's at-home high-frequency vibration (HFV) line includes the VPro5, VPro+, and VPro products; the devices support both active treatment and retention and are designed to be used in as few as five minutes per day. Dentsply Sirona's Byte product already includes the VPro technology, labeled as HyperByte, in every treatment.

Dentsply Sirona said it plans to work on new branding for the dental professional market once it integrates Propel Orthodontics assets. It will continue to sell VPro directly to dental professionals.
