Dentsply Sirona said that it has acquired substantially all of the assets of Propel Orthodontics, including the VPro device and the Fastrack Mobile App. According to Dentsply Sirona, these product lines perfectly complement and add digital capabilities to its Byte and SureSmile businesses to improve patient engagement and treatment monitoring.
The at-home High Frequency Vibration product line includes the VPro5, VPro+, and VPro and supports both active treatment and retention in just 5 minutes a day. When used as part of an orthodontic treatment plan, the companies said, they can increase patient comfort and reduce overall treatment time significantly.
Dentsply Sirona said that it also will continue to enhance the VPro Fastrack App, which helps patients and providers remotely monitor the orthodontic treatment plan.
“With the acquisition of the assets of Propel Orthodontics, Dentsply Sirona takes another step to position the company as a leading innovator in the fast-growing clear aligner market. It is the perfect match to Byte, and our SureSmile business, and is also a strong strategic fit with Dentsply Sirona,” said Don Casey, CEO of Dentsply Sirona.
Byte, which Dentsply Sirona acquired in December 2020, already includes the VPro product, labeled as HyperByte, in every treatment. Dentsply Sirona also said it will launch new branding as part of the SureSmile portfolio for the professional market after Propel Orthodontics’ assets have been integrated and will continue to sell VPro directly to dental professionals.
