What is Fastbraces and how it works?
Fastbraces® is a new form of orthodontic treatment that has been in development in the USA for the last twenty years. Fastbraces® uses a unique patented triangular brackets system and a specially made extra flexible wire. The treatment from start to finish uses only one wire which exerts very gentle forces on the teeth. Due to this, patients feel less discomfort and pain than with other fixed systems. Also it can achieve excellent results in the shortest time possible.
Advantages of Fastbraces compared to Invisalign, Six Month Smiles and fixed braces
Traditional Fixed Braces
Fastbraces® offers a system of tooth alignment that is known as short term orthodontics which mainly aligns the front teeth. For patients looking for all their teeth to be aligned and to have a perfect bite, they should look at comprehensive orthodontic treatments such as fixed braces.
Traditional fixed braces work in parallel to the roots of the teeth to align all teeth and can take upto 2 years to finish. However, with Fastbraces®, it aligns the front teeth over a shorter period of time. On average this is around 6-12 months.
Another advantage of Fastbraces is the cost. The cost of Fastbraces® is very similar to other short term orthodontic systems such as Invisalign or Six Month Smiles and usually cheaper than having comprehensive orthodontics with fixed braces.
Disadvantage of Fastbraces
A disadvantage of Fastbraces® is it still uses the bracket and wire system, as opposed to the clear plastic aligners used with Invisalign. However, patients can have tooth coloured wire and ceramic brackets which make it a discreet option.
