With safety in mind, Fastbraces® Technology was developed to straighten teeth differently – allowing for a fast, safe and affordable solution. Patients can now get results often with less sensitivity, in about a year, and in some cases, just a few months. It has been developed and tested over the past 20 years and is now available in the UK. Research has shown that Fastbraces® are not only safe but offer many additional benefits.
Patients often experience less discomfort and there are no more risks with Fastbraces® than those associated with traditional braces. Additionally, the fact that the braces are on for less time means that there is possibly less chance of tooth decay due to improper oral hygiene. Treatment with Fastbraces® Technology improves the patient’s lifestyle because treatment typically takes just a few visits to the dentist. Less dentist visits mean less money spent, less petrol used getting to and from the dental practice and less time off school or work. Another possible remarkable benefit is the reduction of retainer usage. When the braces come off one needs to wear the retainers only 15 minutes a day in the shower.
Traditional braces move teeth into position in two stages, usually over a period of about two years. In the first year, the crown of the tooth is moved into alignment. In the second year, treatment addresses the position of the root of the tooth. However, the brackets used with Fastbraces® work on a different mechanical principle altogether. The patented system uses an innovative bracket and a specially- shaped wire to correct the position of the root of the tooth, from the beginning of treatment. This combination is key in realigning the root and crown simultaneously.
