Fastbraces®: A New Smile in as little as 3 Months
To get on the fast-track to a straighter smile, have a chat with Dr. Anderson about Fastbraces®. Unlike traditional braces that can take up to two years to rearrange a crooked smile, Fastbraces® offers a patented design that can get results faster and easier than ever. Typically, results can be seen in as little as three to six months.
Fastbraces® work with mechanics that are very different from traditional brace designs. The Fastbraces®brackets are triangular and employ the use of a single wire during treatment. While traditional braces move teeth in two stages, first the crown and then the root;Fastbraces® move both at the same time. Your teeth start readjusting the first day Fastbraces® are applied. By moving the root and crown of the tooth simultaneously, you can experience less sensitivity and faster results.
The shape of the Fastbraces® bracket is the key to its success. With a triangular design, that has an elevated slot and elbow; it changes how force is applied to your teeth. The elevated slot creates more space for the wire between teeth, which gives it more flexibility while the elbow creates torque on the teeth. The risks are the same as with traditional braces, but studies have shown that patients have less discomfort during the treatment. Because Fastbraces® are typically on for a lesser period of time, the risk of tooth decay and improper hygiene is reduced as well.
Fastbraces® are a safe and affordable way to straighten your smile. They require fewer visits with the dentist, meaning less money spent and more time to do the things you love. After your Fastbraces® have been removed, you will be required to wear a retainer for some time minutes each day, but typically much less than is required with traditional braces.
