It’s time to stop worrying and straighten that smile with FastBraces®!
If you live in Orem, Utah or the surrounding area, you can get braces treatment by the best orthodontics office for FastBraces® in Utah Valley.
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, FastBraces patients experience less pain, less time in braces, and a more permanent, lasting smile.
Did you know that crooked or crowded teeth are a bigger problem than just appearance?
Not only have studies shown that a straighter smile improves self-esteem, but braces can also solve many of the following issues:
– Recurring cavities
– Speech impediment
– Grinding teeth at night
– Periodontal disease & bone erosion
– Exacerbating existing mental health issues
– Issues brushing and flossing teeth correctly
– Discomfort & injuries incurred from protruding teeth
– Inability to chew effectively, leading to poor digestive health
It isn’t worth letting your child suffer.
Let us straighten that smile, improve self-confidence, and eliminate the ongoing (and potentially expensive) issues that can stem from misaligned teeth.
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—up to 3 years—to see longterm results.
Additionally, traditional braces often leave the patient open to significant tooth shifting after the braces 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.
Many people like the idea of having clear, invisible braces. There are pros and cons to using visible braces vs. clear aligners to straighten teeth.
Invisalign invisible braces are a popular solution for people who don’t want to wear visible braces.
However, without the direct supervision of an orthodontic professional, attempting to shift your teeth with a home kit could be disastrous.
Read our FAQs below for more information on the pros & cons of Invisalign aligners.

No. Though moving teeth too fast with traditional braces or Invisalign can cause significant damage, FastBraces® works in a completely different way.
Due to the use of a round wire, traditional orthodontic braces cannot torque the root of the tooth. Instead, they can only align the crown of the tooth until the dentist can transition to a square or rectangular wire. Typically, it takes a year to align crowns with traditional braces, and another year to shift the root of the tooth.
However, FastBraces® utilizes a square or rectangular wire right from the beginning. This, combined with heat-activated wire technology, allows teeth to move quicker and gentler without damage because the change is simply more efficient.
If your child exhibits any of the following symptoms, they may need braces:
– Difficulty chewing or biting
– Grinding teeth at night
– Mouth breathing
– Finger sucking or other oral habits
– Crowded, blocked, or displaced teeth
– Jaw shifting or clicking, or jaw pain when chewing gum
– Early, late, or irregular loss of infant teeth
– Misaligned jaw or teeth
– Teeth or jaws disproportionate to the rest of the face
– Biting the cheek
– Tender roof of the mouth
If you suspect your child has any of the above issues, it’s important to get the issue diagnosed as soon as possible. (The younger a child is, the easier it is to fix existing dental problems!) Schedule a free consultation with us today: 801.802.7200.

Orthodontists often report having to re-treat patients after they used Six Month Smiles or similar services because these at-home treatment kits do not fully diagnose all of the issues a patient might be facing.
For example, Invisalign, as well as other aligners that tout a quick window of results, run the risk of moving teeth too fast. Some patients have even seen issues of torn or injured gums due to the teeth being pulled along too roughly.
FastBraces eliminates the risk of dental injury through groundbreaking heat-activated archwire technology, unlike anything else ever seen in the industry. This technology allows teeth to move faster and more safely, without long-term issues.
Additionally, Six Month Smiles does not address overbite and underbite issues and can cause long-term problems that patients often have to get fixed later on.
Getting your teeth fixed after spending thousands of dollars on an at-home kit is not only more expensive than seeing an orthodontist in the first place, but can potentially take even longer and more painful than traditional braces.
Orthodontists are trained to assess more than just how straight your teeth are. They also examine functionality of the patient’s bite, how all the teeth fit into the mouth, the impact of facial structure, and the overall aesthetic of the face, mouth, and teeth.
Though Six Month Smiles averages at a much lower cost than most other braces options, a FastBraces Master Provider is a far more reliable option, and more likely to leave you with results you love.

Teeth can shift significantly after braces come off, and losing a retainer can be catastrophic.
As soon as braces are removed, teeth can begin to shift. The first three months are vital when it comes to wearing retainers, as this is the biggest risk period for significant movement.
Even after the first three months, it’s important to continue wearing retainers. Teeth can move within just a few days of not wearing a retainer. As you age, hormone and bone levels continue to evolve over time, and the position of your teeth can shift throughout adulthood, even years or decades after braces have been removed.
However, with FastBraces,® you can rest assured that teeth will not shift as significantly even if a retainer is lost. Because of the patented heat-activated archwire technology, FastBraces® move your teeth in a more permanent and long-lasting way.
It’s always wise (and necessary) to wear your retainer, but the consequences of losing one are not as severe after wearing FastBraces.®
