Fastbraces are fairly new to the world of orthodontic dentistry. Due to the affordability and ease of use, this advanced technology is changing the way teeth are straightened.
At Paseo Ranch Pediatric Dentistry, we are proud to offer Fastbraces to our patients in the Glendale, AZ, area.
Traditional Orthodontic Treatment
With traditional braces, teeth are shifted into the desired positions in multiple stages. The average time for brackets and wires to be worn is two years. During year one, the goal is to align the crowns and get them in the proper places. Throughout the second year, we focus on achieving the proper alignment and position of the root of each tooth.
How Fastbraces Work
However, Fastbraces work much differently. The triangular brackets and square wire move the entire tooth, from crown to root, from the beginning. This patented system allows concurrent alignment and, as a result, saves time. In fact, with this innovative method, you can expect the treatment time to be anywhere from 3 months to a year. This all depends on the nature of your teeth and the severity of your case. For some patients, results are visible in just weeks.
Another great benefit of Fastbraces is that there is less friction compared to traditional braces. For that reason, there is also less pain. After the desired result is achieved, a retainer must be worn for a prescribed period. You will only need to wear it for about 15–20 minutes per day. If you choose, you can also wear the retainer overnight.
