Advanced Technology to Straighten Teeth
Traditional braces typically move the crowns of teeth during the first year or so of treatment, followed by moving the tooth roots during the second year. FASTBRACES®, however, use a special type of bracket and a single wire to move the crowns and roots simultaneously for faster results. While all braces can cause some tooth sensitivity, most patients report less discomfort with FASTBRACES® than with more traditional orthodontic methods, making them comfortable as well as quick. You can even choose clear brackets that blend with your teeth so that your braces are virtually unnoticeable.
FASTBRACES® Correct Most Orthodontic Issues
FASTBRACES® can be placed on patients of all ages, from children to teens to adults. Most types of orthodontic problems can be addressed with FASTBRACES®, including crooked, crowded, or gapped teeth, as well as overbites, underbites, and crossbites. Patients with impacted teeth, severe underbites, or other extreme jaw or TMJ issues may not be candidates for FASTBRACES®.
Fast and Safe Orthodontic Treatment
Many patients fear that moving the position of teeth too quickly is dangerous, but that is only the case with traditional braces. When an orthodontist tries to move teeth faster by excessively tightening conventional braces, patients will experience pain and possibly tooth root damage. However, the square or rectangular wire used with FASTBRACES® allows the roots to be moved from the beginning of treatment in a safe and gentle manner, preserving the integrity of your entire tooth structure and offering a more comfortable treatment.
