DID YOU KNOW…
Fast! Treatment times range from 3 months to about a year.
Fastbraces® Technology typically works with just one orthodontic wire from start to finish, whereas old braces usually require a series of wires and tightening procedures. Fastbraces® Technology uses a special square super-elastic nickel-titanium wire which is activated by the special design of the braces. This dynamic wire helps upright the whole tooth using the natural temperature of the mouth in just one stage. Now treatment time can be measured in months instead of years!
*Fastbraces® Expert refers to a merit status based on the standards set out by the AAO (American Association for Orthodontics) for American orthodontists. A Senior Master Affiliate has completed at least 100 cases to these standards.
How it works
The fundamental difference between conventional brace systems and Fastbraces® is the staggered tooth movement. Traditional braces tend to move teeth in two stages, firstly they move the crown and secondly they move the root.
Whilst this staggered technique works and has done for many years, it can be time consuming; normally it takes around a year for each stage of movement to be completed. Fastbraces® can boast treatment times of half this length because it focuses on both areas at the same time.
The ability to do this comes from elementary mechanical characteristics. Fastbraces® use an innovative ‘elbow’ design in the brackets and a uniquely shaped wire which work together exert forces on the root and crown simultaneously.
Brackets dictate how flexible the wire on a brace can be and this has an impact on how much movement a wire can affect on the teeth. Conventional brackets are square and close together, which means the force that a wire can exert is limited. With Fastbraces® however, the triangular shaped brackets with an elevated slot, allow for more space between each bracket, enabling greater wire flexibility. Ultimately, this means we can deliver the smile of your dreams in a short space of time.
How long will it take?
Fastbraces® patients are able to achieve their perfect smile in around half the time that it would take traditional brace systems. On average it takes from three months to up to a year to move teeth into the desired position.
- Patients report very little discomfort when undergoing treatment.
- Reduced time in the chair means reduced time necessary to perform work, we transfer this benefit to you as a patient in the form of a reduced cost!
- Majority of Fastbraces cases do not require any tooth extractions, unlike traditional fixed braces.
- Dramatically less time wearing a retainer, 15 minutes each day is sufficient.
- Reduced treatment time means shorter window of opportunity for oral hygiene difficulty meaning less risk of decay.
