Fastbraces® is a relatively new, exciting orthodontic treatment, which straightens the teeth much quicker than traditional fixed braces. Fastbraces® are an effective treatment option for patients with all kinds of orthodontic problems, including:
• misaligned teeth
• crowded teeth
• spaces between the teeth
• problems with the bite
Fastbraces® straighten the teeth, producing a beautiful, healthy looking smile, which will boost your confidence and enable you to smile with pride. Typically, the treatment works around 50 % faster than traditional fixed braces. Treatment time depends on the complexity of the case; minor cases may be completed within 3 months, while more complex cases usually take between 10 and 12 months.
Fastbraces® works in a different way to the traditional fixed braces; normally, fixed braces move the crown section of the teeth and then the root section. Fastbraces® move the root portion of the teeth from day one, which means that the entire tooth is moved together, which drastically reduces treatment time. Fast Braces use triangular-shaped brackets, rather than square brackets, which increase the flexibility of the wire and only one wire is used so the brace is fine and light.
