Only 1 wire is used in the treatment, unlike traditional brace systems which use 3-4, or maybe more, wires. The movement of the teeth is then faster and gives excellent results in a fraction of the time. Most cases are finished in 3-10 months depending on the individual’s teeth and alveolar bone structure. Nearly all cases are completed NON EXTRACTION, ie, we do not take teeth out unless there is a health need and other associated factors.
The technology has been used in the US for over 20 years, with scientific research in hundreds of well respected orthodontic literature. There are thousands upon thousands of very happy patients who have benefitted from Fastbraces® treatment. There are no different risks, or any more risks, compared to the old traditional braces. In fact, because the forces used to move teeth are so low, and the brackets are on the teeth for shorter period of time, they are less likely to affect the surface of the enamel and trap plaque around the tooth. So there is less demineralisation and less tooth decay compared to other systems, that are on for longer.
The brace system is completed in sections to allow the teeth roots and crowns to move very gently. It allows for the least amount of discomfort and changes to your lifestyle. The brackets are small and very comfortable for the lips and bite. Appointments are typically every 5 weeks and most cases are finished in 5-10 visits. It is not uncommon that mild cases can be finished in 1 visit! Fastbraces® technology moves the roots into the ideal position and provides the most aesthetic and beautiful finish for your new smile.
Because of the faster movement of the teeth, fewer visits (just 5-10), and just 1 wire technology, it means less surgery time for you. This means fees are much more affordable compared to 2-3 years of traditional braces. Each case will be assessed and fees given accordingly.
This complete orthodontic system is suitable for cosmetic orthodontic cases in for adults, and full orthodontics for children and adults. It is for all types of teeth straightening, and after an assessment by our Fastbraces® trained provider, Dr Saquib Aziz, we can let you know if you are suitable. Children can normally be considered by the age of 9-10 to get started, but assessments are usually planned around 8 years of age to assess the position of the canine teeth.
With the complete alignment of the roots of the teeth, retention is needed only 20 minutes per day. No more retainers during the day for months after treatment. This unique point makes Fastbraces® the ultimate new revolution in teeth straightening and orthodontics in the world. A clear version is also available to provide all the benefits of a clear brace system with the added benefits of greater movement capability. Speak to Dr Saquib Aziz about these.
