Orthodontic treatments have been the go-to option for decades when achieving a dazzling smile and optimal oral health. Unfortunately, many people when considering braces, often get images of lengthy treatment times and discomfort. However, advancements in orthodontics have given rise to a game-changer – Fastbraces. This revolutionary treatment transforms how people achieve their dream smiles with remarkable speed and efficiency.

What Are Fastbraces?

Fastbraces are a cutting-edge orthodontic system designed to straighten teeth faster than traditional braces. Dr. Anthony Viazis developed Fastbraces in 1992, gaining immense popularity in orthodontics. These revolutionary braces boast a unique triangular bracket and wire design that can significantly reduce the time needed to achieve the desired results. This reduced time makes them an attractive option for patients and orthodontists.

How Do Fastbraces Work?

Traditional braces work by shifting the crown of the tooth and dragging the root along behind. This is a more painful experience for the patient, and often takes far longer—sometimes up to 3 years—to see long term results.

Fastbraces uses newer technology to move teeth more safely and effectively than traditional braces or Invisalign. With a single, heat-activated wire that leverages the patient’s own body heat, Fastbraces move teeth by the root first. As a result, patients experience less pain, less time in braces, and a more permanent, lasting smile.

Additionally, traditional braces often leave the patient open to significant tooth shifting after the brace’s treatment is completed. While Fastbraces® still requires the patient to use a retainer after treatment, patients are less likely to see such significant shifting if they lose a retainer or forget to wear it for a while.

What Are the Advantages of Fastbraces

  1. Faster Treatment Times: As the name suggests, the most significant advantage of Fastbraces is the incredible reduction in treatment time. Patients can enjoy a beautifully aligned smile in a fraction of the time compared to traditional braces or other orthodontic methods.
  2. Minimal Discomfort: Fastbraces’ unique design and efficient movement often result in less discomfort during treatment. Patients may experience milder soreness, making the journey to a better smile more comfortable.
  3. Improved Oral Hygiene: Fastbraces are known for being easy to maintain. Unlike traditional braces that can trap food particles and are challenging to clean, the streamlined design of Fastbraces allows for better oral hygiene, reducing the risk of cavities and gum problems during treatment.
  4. Affordable Option: While the cost of orthodontic treatments can vary depending on several factors, Fastbraces are often considered more cost-effective due to their shorter treatment duration. This affordability factor has made braces accessible to more patients seeking orthodontic correction.
  5. Versatility: Fastbraces can address many orthodontic issues, including overcrowded teeth, spacing problems, crossbites, overbites, and underbites. This versatility makes them practical for many patients who desire a more aligned smile.

Are Fastbraces Suitable for Everyone?

While Fastbraces offer many advantages, they may only be suitable for some orthodontic cases. The complexity of the patient’s specific condition and the orthodontist’s recommendation will determine the best treatment option. Sometimes, traditional braces or other orthodontic appliances may still be the better choice.

It is crucial to consult an experienced orthodontist who can thoroughly evaluate your unique needs and recommend the most suitable treatment plan. At Orem Pediatric, you’ve come to the right place.
