VPro Vibrational Technology Helps Shift Your Teeth
Straight teeth and a beautiful smile don’t have to take years. At Jacklyn Kurth Orthodontics, our experienced orthodontists in Foster City and Belmont, CA, offer VPro™ — an innovative high-frequency vibration system. VPro is an advanced orthodontic technology that helps accelerate orthodontic tooth movement during clear aligner treatment.
Explore the VPro device to accelerate orthodontic treatment with Dr. Jacklyn Kurth and her dedicated team. We’re here to make orthodontics quicker and easier while providing the same quality results as traditional methods.
What Is VPro Orthodontic Technology?
VPro consists of a single comfortable mouthpiece worn over the teeth for just five minutes daily to provide gentle vibrational stimulation. When used as a supplement to braces or clear aligners, VPro can cut treatment time down substantially and reduce orthodontic discomfort.
The VPro vibration device transmits soft micro pulses to the teeth and bone to stimulate cellular activity and accelerate the body’s natural bone remodeling processes. The result is faster tooth movement when VPro therapy is combined with clear aligners.
The Benefits of The VPro Device
The VPro device offers many benefits when added to traditional orthodontic treatments:
- Accelerates tooth movement, shortening treatment time
- Comfortable fit, only worn five minutes per day
- Easy to incorporate into existing orthodontic routine
- Enhances the effectiveness of braces or clear aligners
- No extra food restrictions or oral hygiene steps
- Fewer office visits
- Reduces orthodontic discomfort
Is The VPro Device Right for Me?
VPro is suitable for adults and teens who want to supplement their existing orthodontic treatment.
It works best for those with:
- Braces or clear aligner therapy
- Mild to moderate alignment issues
- Desire to reduce treatment time
- Commitment to using VPro daily

The Science Behind VPro Vibrational Orthodontics
Vibrational orthodontic devices use a technology called osteogenic orthodontics. This involves applying gentle vibrational forces to the teeth and bone to stimulate cellular activity.
What Is Bone Remodeling?
Studies have shown that the VPro device can increase the rate of bone remodeling. Bone remodeling is where old bone is resorbed, and new bone is formed to gradually shift the teeth into desired positions.
Bone remodeling enables teeth to shift and align over time with orthodontic force. By accelerating bone remodeling, VPro can speed up proper tooth alignment and movement.
Patients use the VPro device for five minutes daily along with their aligners. This supplemental vibrational stimulation aids the primary orthodontic treatment to accelerate tooth movement. Regular VPro device use alongside traditional methods can reduce treatment time by up to 50 percent.
The Five-Minute VPro Process
Using your VPro device correctly creates better conditions for tooth movement to reduce treatment time. Here are Dr. Kurth’s recommendations for creating stunning smiles with VPro:
- Bite down gently on the mouthpiece
- Wear for five minutes every day
- Leave your aligners on while using the device
- Gradually increase the vibrations as treatment progresses
Is VPro Safe?
As the only high-frequency vibration product cleared by the FDA, the VPro device moves teeth similarly to traditional braces but at a much faster rate. The vibrations stimulate the bone cells and tissues, so less overall orthodontic force is required.
Used properly, high-frequency vibration forces are safe for the teeth and supporting structures. The technology offers a more efficient alternative to wearing braces, Invisalign treatment, or aligners for extended periods.
The VPro Fastrack App
The VPro Fastrack app aims to simplify, educate, motivate, and engage patients for better clinical outcomes. The app fosters an enhanced patient experience with the convenience of mobile technology.
The app has the following features that help patients move through their treatments:

- Communication: Secure messaging with the orthodontist's office makes communication easy for appointments or questions.
- Convenience: Treatment data, images, and forms are accessible anytime in the app for convenience.
- User Support: FAQs, live chat, and step-by-step tutorials help patients properly use VPro and the app.
Frequently Asked Questions
Can VPro be used alone?
No, VPro is not a standalone treatment but rather an adjunctive vibration device to be used with braces or clear aligners. It works by accelerating your main orthodontic treatment.
How long until I see results with VPro?
You should notice a difference in the rate of tooth movement within the first five minutes a day for two to three months when using the VPro vibration device as a daily supplement to braces or aligners. Your orthodontist will monitor your enhanced progress at regular adjustment visits.
How do I care for the VPro mouthpiece?
Clean the VPro mouthpiece by gently rinsing it after each use. Protect the device when not in use. Bring it to your orthodontic recovery times and adjustment visits so your orthodontist can check the fit.
Can I wear aligners while using the VPro?
Yes, your aligners help guide your teeth into the correct position, so you should wear them while using vibrational orthodontic therapy.
