Fastbraces® is the original, fast and safe braces system developed about 20 years ago as an alternative to traditional braces.
Fastbraces® was designed to help virtually anyone who has crooked teeth. Fastbraces® can be worn by children, teenagers, and adults. No matter how old you are, seeing success from Fastbraces® can help you face the world with more confidence!
Fastbraces® work differently than traditional braces. The technology utilized in Fastbraces® is simply amazing! Fastbraces® decrease the amount of time a patient would have to wear braces by moving both the root and crown of your teeth at the same time. A Fastbraces® patient should experience less discomfort with Fastbraces® than they would with traditional braces.
The Fastbraces® Procedure
To understand how teeth are straightened with Fastbraces®, you must first understand why teeth are crooked. Teeth are crooked because they come in the mouth tilted, sideways and not upright in the position they need to be straight. This means that the root of a crooked tooth is not straight (upright) as it should be if the tooth erupts crooked.
Historically, braces are usually square in shape and typically the crown of the tooth in the first year, and the root of the tooth in the second year, thus requiring two years of treatment. Fastbraces® works on a different mechanical principle altogether.
The Fastbraces® patented design uses a unique, triangular shaped braces that typically allows for just one orthodontic wire during the treatment. These triangular are specifically designed to move the crown and root of the teeth at the same time, from the beginning of the treatment. If the root is upright, then the tooth becomes straight.
Patients can now get results often with less sensitivity, in about a year, and in some instances, just a few months.
