What are Fastbraces™?
Honeysuckle Dental is proud to offer a range of revolutionary dental treatments, including the innovative Fastbraces™.
Dental issues can be a cause for embarrassment and can lower your confidence causing you to smile less or not at all! Crooked or misaligned teeth can be caused by a variety reasons such as genetics, overcrowding, etc.
In some cases, the teeth erupt improperly and tilt, form gaps or overlap causing the alveolar bone to exhibit hypoplasia (where the enamel is hard but thin and deficient causing a variety of dental issues).
What are Fastbraces™?
For over 25 years, Fastbraces™ have been helping people get straighter teeth in much faster time. It is the fast, safe, easy, and affordable alternative to traditional orthodontic braces.
Fastbraces™ is a bracket system which causes the roots of teeth to straighten (making them upright) using one square wire. It effectively resolves dental problems such as overcrowding of teeth, high canines, overbite, crossbite, and spacing issues, to name a few.
How does they work?
Traditional braces move your teeth into position over a period of around two years. During the first year, the crown of the tooth is aligned whilst in the second year the treatment works on correctly positioning the root of the tooth.
Fastbraces™ on the other hand, begins repositioning the root of the tooth from the beginning of the treatment. Using a triangular bracket with a specially shaped square wire, Fastbraces™ correct the position of the root of the tooth, aligning both the root and crown simultaneously offering quicker results than traditional braces.
The Fastbraces™ brackets have built-in arms to continually adjust the teeth resulting in less visits to the orthodontist for adjustments and tightening, and does not require as many rubber bands and metal wires, making it a more comfortable option.
Once the roots have completely aligned, you will be required to use a retainer everyday but only for 15-20 minutes a day! This means you won’t have to use it during the day, since you can wear it at night when sleeping and still maintain excellent results.
Unlike traditional braces that initially only move the crowns (the visible part of teeth), Fastbraces™ effectively move both the crowns and roots of teeth at the same time. Since this dental technology begins realigning the roots of the teeth from the start of the treatment (as opposed to a year later), you could see begin results in as little as 3 months or earlier, depending on the severity of your case!
