FastBraces®Have you been wanting straighter teeth for a while? Has the thought of having to wear braces for several years prevented you from fixing your smile? If so, you’re going to want to learn more about an exciting development in the dental field called FastBraces®, a safe, affordable, quick way to straighten teeth. The braces are for adults and teens, making them a favorite among people of all ages who want to experience rapid teeth straightening.

What Are FastBraces®?

FastBraces® are a state-of-the-art technology that dentists have been using successfully for almost 25 years. These modern braces became available in the US only recently, and we’re excited to be able to offer them to our patients. While they look similar to traditional braces, they work much faster.

How Do FastBraces® Work?

A tooth is typically crooked because its root is slanted. As a result, the tooth itself grows in slanted. FastBraces® uses a unique triangular design and a special nickel-titanium heat-activated wire to target and upright the root. As a result, patients often experience immediate root movement that straightens their teeth.

What Are the Benefits of FastBraces®?

FastBraces® have a number of advantages over traditional braces. Specifically, they offer the following benefits:

  • Treatments typically range from weeks to months–rather than years!
  • Once teeth are aligned, retainers only need to be worn for 15-20 minutes a day
  • Use a single wire versus traditional wires and bands
  • Less painful than traditional braces
