Fastbraces® is a new innovative technology that takes straightening teeth to a whole new level. Well we say new, but it has been being developed and tested over the past 20 years. The unique triangular bracket, developed by a board certified orthodontist, allows for movement of the roots of the teeth towards their final positions from the beginning of treatment by torquing them from the very first appointment. This is different from traditional braces. With traditional braces the crown of the tooth is moved into desired position and then the roots are straightened. This is part of the reason traditional braces take longer.
The magic is all in the new shape and technology of the bracket and wire. The shape of the triangular bracket compared to the traditional square bracket increases the distance between the brackets and that increases the flexibility of the wire. More flexibility in the wire allows for less force to be placed on the teeth and helps with the quick movement of the teeth.
The biggest advantage of Fastbraces® is less time!!! This helps in so many ways. There’s less risk of tooth decay due to improper oral hygiene, less visits to the dental office, saving you money on office visits and gas, and less time off of school or work.
