Braces Q & A

What are FASTBRACES?

FASTBRACES are an alternative to traditional braces when it comes to straightening your teeth and correcting your bite. Regular wire-and-bracket braces move your teeth into a better position by shifting the teeth’s crowns over the first year, and then the roots that lie under the gums move during the second year.

With FASTBRACES this process is streamlined. This modern system uses a triangular bracket and square wire to fix the position of the crown and the root of the tooth at the same time. As a result, FASTBRACES speeds up treatment and completely transforms your teeth.

FASTBRACES have been around for many years, and their safety and effectiveness have been proven through research at universities in the United States, Europe, and South America. The technology was first introduced in 1992, and since then, thousands of happy patients have straighter teeth as a result of wearing them.

What are the benefits of FASTBRACES?

Of course, faster, effective teeth straightening is a significant advantage of FASTBRACES technology. Your time wearing braces is cut down from 2-3 years to a single year, and you start to see results in just a few weeks of wearing the FASTBRACES. Other benefits include:

  • Less tooth decay due to shorter wear time, so you have a healthier post-treatment smile.
  • Less pain due to low frictional forces
  • Post-treatment retainer wear is required for just 15-20 minutes each day

How do FASTBRACES work?

The reason your teeth are not straight is that they emerge through the gum line improperly -- coming in tilted, overlapping, gapped, or sideways. FASTBRACES has a high-performance bracket system that straightens the roots of the teeth in your alveolar bone -- the jawbone that holds your teeth. The one square wire transforms your alveolar bone naturally, but expediently.

Who is a candidate for FASTBRACES?

If you desire a straighter, more beautiful smile in months, rather than years, FASTBRACES should be a consideration for you. The innovative system can correct gaps between your teeth, crooked teeth, or irregularities in your bite. It’s also ideal for those who shy away from the pain and cost of conventional braces.
