There’s never been a better time in history to need an orthodontist. Seriously! From this French dude back in the early 1700s all the way up until the 1990s, people were limited to some version of traditional braces. Now, don’t get us wrong: trad braces are a classic. They’ve literally gotten the job done for centuries, and they’re great at what they do!
And since 1997, clear aligners have been a helpful and effective alternative choice. Many of our patients choose them for their orthodontic treatment. One tooth-alignment solution you may not be as familiar with, though, is called Fastbraces®. This smile-straightening method was actually invented in 1992, but it is seeing ever-wider use in the orthodontic community as evidence of its speed and effectiveness becomes more widely known. Here’s how it works.
Traditional braces typically break treatment down into two years: one year for aligning the crowns of the teeth and a second year for pulling the roots into alignment. Amazingly, Fastbraces accomplishes these two crucial elements of smile straightening simultaneously, resulting in significantly shorter treatment time. Smiles can be straightened in as little as 100 days!
Our patients love how quickly and easily Fastbraces transform their smiles… and Fastbraces aren’t just for kids! Our adult patients especially appreciate the minimal treatment time that allows them to experience their ideal smile sooner. We’ve also noticed that our Fastbraces patients report less pain and discomfort during the tooth-straightening process than those who elect to use traditional braces.
