Fastbraces® Q & A

What are Fastbraces®?

Fastbraces is a fast, effective, and affordable alternative to traditional braces. Fastbraces uses its revolutionary technology to straighten your teeth. 

Traditional braces move your teeth into position in two stages, usually taking at least two years. The first stage helps move the crown of your tooth into alignment. The second stage addresses the position of the root of your tooth.  

With the unique Fastbraces design, the crown and root of your tooth move simultaneously, reducing your overall treatment time to 3-12 months. If you don’t want to have metallic braces, Fastbraces also offers clear ceramic brackets. Regardless of the Fastbraces option you choose, they both offer the same technological advantages of moving your teeth.

What problems can Fastbraces correct?

Fastbraces is proven effective for:

  • Overbites
  • High canines
  • Crowding
  • Open bites
  • Crossbites
  • Spacing issues

To determine if Fastbraces is suitable to straighten your teeth, contact Dr. Simmons and Dr. Edstrom at Brite Smiles Dental Care today. 

Do I have to wear a retainer after my treatment?

After you finish your Fastbraces treatment, you can maintain your new smile by wearing a retainer for only 15 minutes a day. 

This is one of the best benefits Fastbraces provides, since traditional braces require you to wear a retainer for the majority of the day for up to a year after the braces come off.

What is the difference between Fastbraces and traditional braces?

While Fastbraces and traditional braces both provide you with a beautiful smile, there are noteworthy differences.

Fastbraces requires only one wire throughout the entirety of your treatment. Traditional braces tend to be more complex and involve multiple wires. 

Also, Fastbraces uses triangular brackets, while traditional braces use square brackets. The triangular design makes the Fastbraces process a lot quicker than traditional ones.  

If you want to straighten your teeth, but don’t want to wear traditional braces for years, then Fastbraces might be the perfect option for you. Contact Brite Smiles Dental Care or book your appointment online.
