What is Fastbraces?
There are times when you to do things in a hurry, but do not want to sacrifice quality. Wouldn’t it be great of that also applied to Orthodontic treatments to straighten your teeth? Now with Fastbraces, it does! Fastbraces are a modern alternative to the old, traditional style of braces. With Fastbraces treatment many people have results in as little as six months!
Main differences between traditional braces and Fastbraces
- Fastbraces take a shorter period to straighten teeth, usually 3 months to 1 year
- Fastbraces are far less expensive than traditional braces due to the shortened treatment time
- Fastbraces moves the roots and the crowns of the teeth at the same time
The difference is in the structure of the bracket. This new technology uses what is referred to as self-ligating brackets, which do not require the use of elastic bands or additional wire to hold them in place.
These brackets have embedded in them a sliding process so that the teeth will straighten quickly into the required position. They also reduce the likelihood of friction taking place between the wire and the brackets, which decreases the necessity to constantly visit the dentist. This is an added advantage over the more clumsy traditional braces.
Fastbraces target the movement of roots and crowns of teeth at the same time allowing the duration of treatment to be significantly shorter. Fastbraces brackets come in a non-conventional triangular design that more efficiently lessens bone resistance to movement in a more comfortable rate.
Who can use Fastbraces?
Fastbraces can be installed in just about anyone, which includes teens and adults. A Fastbraces certified dentist can help you determine if you or your family member is a good candidate.
