WHAT ARE FASTBRACES?
Fastbraces are an alternative to traditional orthodontic treatment that has been used across the country since 1992. They move both the root and crown of the tooth into alignment at the same time, making it a more efficient option than traditional braces.
Just about anyone who is a candidate for traditional braces can benefit from Fastbraces. The procedure is effective for teenagers and adults who want to straighten their teeth and achieve a proper bite alignment.
BENEFITS OF FASTBRACES
The primary benefit to choosing Fastbraces is a shorter treatment time. Traditional orthodontics repositions your teeth in two separate stages, typically taking about two years to achieve your desired results. In the first year, the crown of your tooth gets moved into alignment. During the second year, the root gets repositioned.
By combining these stages to realign your root and crown simultaneously, Fastbraces significantly reduces your treatment time. While it typically takes about one year to complete the Fastbraces procedure, some patients achieve their results in as little as three months.
OTHER BENEFITS INCLUDE:
- Increased comfort
- Reduced risk of tooth root shortening
- Reduced risk of teeth shifting back to their original position after treatment
- Less expensive than traditional braces
