What is Fastbraces and how it works?
Fastbraces® is a new form of orthodontic treatment that has been in development over the last 20 years In the USA and recently it has come to the UK. Its inventor, Dr Anthony D. Viazis DDS,M.S., is a specialist orthodontist from the USA that has been working on its development and has done more than 20 years of research on this system. It uses a unique triangular brackets system (that is patented) and a specially made extra flexible wire. The treatment from start to finish uses only one wire which exert very gentle forces and hence less discomfort and pain than other systems. Combination of these specially designed brackets and the wire it uses allows to get all the benefits of different orthodontic systems and without their disadvantages. In particular it achieves excellent stable result in the shortest time possible with minimum level of risk involved.
Advantages of Fastbraces ® compared to Invisalign®, Six Month Smiles® and traditional fixed braces?
Traditional Fixed Braces
Based on the research and the result of its clinical use on patients, Fastbraces ® offers a system of tooth alignment that has all the benefits of the traditional fixed braces/train tracks which is considered to be the ultimate form of orthodontic treatment. Fixed braces work by parallelism of the teeth root and can take many years to do, but Fastbraces ® achieve the same in a much shorter time of 3-12 months and with a lot less pain by combination of specially designed brackets and the single wire it uses. Also unlike the traditional braces, in vast majority of the cases Fastbraces ® system avoids extraction of the teeth for better alignment. So no pulling out teeth is involved with Fastbraces ®.
Short Orthodontic System
Short Orthodontic Systems like Invisalign and Six Month Smiles mostly concentrate on straightening the teeth by tilting or tipping the crown of a tooth into an aligned position and hence paying little or no attention to the position of the root of the teeth. This can be an important disadvantage as there is increased risk of the teeth going back to their original position once the treatment is finished (called RELAPSE). To compare with these systems Fastbraces ® not only correct the position of the crown of the teeth but also correct the position of the root of the teeth by bringing them into a parallel position and hence more stable and less risk of relapse.
In many cases Fastbraces ® can be even faster than Short Orthodontic Systems such as Invisalign® or Six Month Smiles® and other systems. So not only it offers a better stable result but it does it just as fast or even in some cases quicker than the Short Orthodontic Systems like Invisalign.
One of the complications with any form of orthodontic treatment is gum recession due to the loss of supporting bone around the tooth when the teeth move. Another very important advantage that Fastbraces ® is claimed to have by its developer over other systems is that not only it straighten teeth quick but it also allows the build up of the supporting bone around the root of the tooth. This means there is a lot less risk of gum recession with straightening teeth with Fastbraces ®.
Price wise, one may think with all the advantages Fastbraces ® offer it has a very high price tag!!? We are very pleased to say that the cost of Fastbraces ® is very similar to the cost of other systems such as Invisalign® or Six Month Smiles at Pearl Dental Clinic®. So no worries there.
Disadvantage of Fastbraces ®
The disadvantage the Fastbraces ® has to compare with Invisalign® is that Fastbraces ® still uses the bracket and the wire system and not the plastic aligners used in Invisalign. But the good news is that patients can have tooth coloured wire and ceramic brackets. So like Six Month Smiles® it is very discreet and certainly not as visible as traditional metal braces.
