Fast Braces is a relatively new, exciting orthodontic treatment, which straightens the teeth much quicker than traditional fixed braces.
Fast Braces 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
Fast Braces 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.
Fast Braces 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. Fast Braces 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.
Are Fast Braces safe?
Fast Braces are safe as they have been developed over a period of more than 20 years and have undergone rigorous testing. Research has actually shown that as well as being a safe and quick treatment, Fast Braces also have a host of other benefits for patients, including increased comfort and the need for fewer dental visits.
Who can use Fast Braces?
Fast Braces are suitable for patients of all ages; the dentist will assess whether you are a suitable candidate during your consultation. The treatment is suitable for most patients and it is an ideal solution for people who want fast results.
What are the benefits of Fast Braces?
The major benefit of Fast Braces is that they work very quickly; in most cases, treatment is complete within 10 months. Fast Braces are also lighter and finer than the traditional fixed brace and they have been developed for comfort as well as speed. The size of the braces also makes it easier to clean the teeth, which means that there is a lower risk of oral diseases. As the braces work so quickly, fewer visits to the dentist are required and this means that treatment is less expensive than other orthodontic treatment. A shorter treatment time is also good news for patients who suffer from dental anxiety.
Another benefit of this system is that in most cases, there is no need for tooth extraction before the braces are fitted. Extraction can be distressing, especially for younger patients, so this can be a major advantage.
