What are the advantages of Fastbraces?

Quick treatment

As the name suggests, Fastbraces work very quickly to deliver results in a short amount of time. Rather than taking years like traditional braces, they take days to straighten your teeth.  The average treatment is 120 days. Teenagers and young adults who fear the stigma caused by metal braces can receive this treatment and achieve the results much quicker.

Clean teeth

The shorter duration of Fastbraces can also guarantee cleaner teeth in the long run. If you were to choose the option of traditional braces, you would have to face the difficulty of ensuring proper cleanliness for your teeth. With braces, food particles can get stuck between the brackets, which can cause tooth decay or gum disease in the long run, requiring you to get restorative treatments. With Fastbraces, you will be wearing your brackets for a much shorter duration, which will mean that you will be able to completely clean your teeth sooner. Fastbraces also have smaller brackets as compared to conventional braces, making it easier to brush the teeth thoroughly.

Enhanced comfort

Those who have worn traditional braces can definitely vouch for the discomfort it causes. Fastbraces are a much better alternative because it is much lighter and more flexible as compared to traditional braces. The technology is designed to gently move the crown and root of the teeth, which means that the wearer will suffer less friction and pain in the process. With Fastbraces, you will not need to undergo any tooth extractions either, which is undoubtedly the preferred choice for all.

Minimal retainer wear

Another reason that makes Fastbraces so popular is its low maintenance. Unlike treatment with traditional braces Fastbraces does not require you to wear retainers throughout the day once your braces are removed. Many people who have undergone treatment with traditional braces wear a retainer at night for the rest of their lives. With Fastbraces, you will only need to wear your retainer(s) for 15-20 minutes a day, that’s it!

Cost-effective

As the treatment with Fastbraces is so quick, you will require fewer visits to the dentist. This will help you save much more time and money in the long-run.

How do Fastbraces work?

Typically, any crooked tooth has a crooked root which makes it stand the way it does. Fastbraces, because of their triangular design and superelastic wire, increases the distance between the braces by almost twice that of traditional braces, giving both teeth and their roots plenty of room and just the right amount of pressure to correct their alignment, thereby straightening them and bringing them to the right position.

Think of it this way, when your teeth come in naturally, very light forces are pushing them up through the gums. They come in slowly so as to not damage the gums or jaw, nature intended it this way. Fastbraces use this same principle, they apply light forces to shift the crowns and roots of the teeth. The extra space due to its triangular braces and super-elasticity of its square-shaped wire gently move the teeth to the desired position. All this makes them one of the most effective dental solutions when it comes to alignment correction.
