What Are Fastbraces And How Do They Work?

While we’re grateful to have access to traditional braces, enduring a lengthy treatment period is a bit of a pain. Three years of metal-mouthed selfies? Not exactly ideal. Thankfully, there’s a new way to get the smile you want without the long wait. Fastbraces are the latest advancement in orthodontic technology, offering a quicker and more comfortable alternative to traditional braces.

Mechanics of Fastbraces

Unlike traditional braces, Fastbraces feature triangular brackets and a single wire that simultaneously move your teeth into position. This one-wire system significantly reduces the amount of time needed for tooth alignment—in some cases, as little as six months! Not only are you getting straight teeth quicker, but the treatment process is kinder to your gums and exerts less pressure than traditional braces.

Fastbraces work by applying gentle forces to the root of each tooth with a unique triangular-shaped stainless steel or ceramic bracket. This helps speed up the moving process while also making it more comfortable. The single-wire system also makes it easier to brush and floss, reducing the risk of plaque build-up and decay between treatments.

Additionally, Fastbraces are designed to reduce friction on the enamel during movement by using an innovative “spring” wire that adjusts itself as your teeth move into alignment. This allows for smoother and faster tooth movement, resulting in less discomfort and more even results.

Safe & Quick Treatment

The most significant advantage of Fastbraces is the speed at which you can get your perfect smile. But that doesn’t mean we sacrifice safety and quality—far from it. The brackets and wires used in Fastbraces are made from titanium, making them incredibly durable and long-lasting. Plus, their innovative design reduces excess pressure on gums and bones, meaning treatment is less uncomfortable than traditional braces.

Some Benefits of Fastbraces

The main advantage of Fastbraces is that you get your desired results with far less time and effort. However, there are several other benefits to using this technology:

  • Fastbraces provide more precise placement of teeth & support than traditional braces
  • The nature of Fastbraces also means you’ll require fewer check-ups & adjustments, making it a more convenient option for busy lifestyles
  • Fastbraces have fewer parts, making them easier to clean
  • Fastbraces can treat crooked, crowded & gapped teeth, as well as overbites & underbites
  • The treatment time can be as fast as 6-12 months
  • Fastbraces move the crown & roots of your teeth simultaneously, significantly reducing treatment time
