An attractive smile is an asset that boosts your self-confidence and helps you make a great impression on everyone you meet. However, not everyone is blessed with a beautiful smile. Your teeth may have overlapped, or you may have a crooked tooth or a gap between two teeth. Such minor dental problems can lower your self-esteem and make you feel less confident. For all these problems, Fastbraces are an effective solution.

What are Fastbraces?

Fastbraces are a type of orthodontic treatment that straightens the teeth faster than traditional orthodontics. They are similar to metal braces but use clear brackets and tooth-colored wires to blend into the natural color of the teeth. Fastbraces are a great option for patients who do not want to wait years for straighter teeth. On average, Fastbraces treatment takes around one year to straighten the teeth. Traditional braces treatment can take two to three years. 

With the advanced technology used in the treatment process, fast braces work quickly to reposition crooked or crowded teeth into proper alignment. Patients love Fastbraces because they spend less time in the dentist’s office as well as less time in treatment overall. They also love the discreet nature of the treatment, allowing them to smile with confidence throughout their course of treatment.

How Do Fastbraces Work?

Fastbraces® technology is designed to shift the roots of the teeth toward their final positions from the beginning of treatment with just one square wire by torquing the root from the crown at the same time, providing continuous force to gently move teeth.

The square-shaped brackets used with Fastbraces® treatment allow for the gentlest pressure on each tooth, reducing discomfort and the need for anesthesia or pain medication during the procedure. Plus, since the braces don’t need to be adjusted as often, you’ll spend less time in your doctor’s office getting adjustments!

Is Fastbraces Right for Me?

Not all patients are good candidates for fast braces, and not all orthodontic problems can be fixed with Fastbraces. During your consultation with our dentist in Katy, TX, we will evaluate your teeth and help you decide if Fastbraces are right for you.

Fastbraces don’t actually move your teeth faster than regular braces. Instead, they apply low force to move teeth slowly over a longer treatment period. This means that some patients can avoid many of the problems typically associated with traditional braces, such as gum irritation or root damage.

Fastbraces may not be appropriate if you have gum disease or worn-down tooth enamel. However, these problems can usually be treated before undergoing orthodontic treatment. Fastbraces can also be effective on adult patients with crowded teeth, spaced teeth, and crossbites. If you are an adult looking for a more comfortable alternative to traditional metal braces, schedule a consultation to find out if Fastbraces will work for you!
