Fastbraces in Hackensack, NJ


Fastbraces Vs. Traditional Braces

Traditional braces are an effective option for people of all ages who want to straighten their smile. The treatment plans for traditional braces, however, can sometimes be longer than our patients want to wait for their ideal smile. 

That’s why we offer a convenient alternative for you here at State Street Smiles with Fastbraces. In a fraction of the time, you can enjoy stunning results from a treatment that’s affordable and more comfortable than traditional braces.

Fastbraces can be worn by adults or children and can address several common orthodontic issues, including:

  • Overbites
  • Underbites
  • Crowded teeth
  • Crooked teeth
  • Gapped teeth
  • Open bites
  • Crossbites

How it works

Fastbraces allows us to speed up the treatment time of traditional braces. With Fastbraces, we can straighten your teeth in as little as three months. Traditional braces use a two-step process of aligning tooth crowns during the first year of treatment and finally pulling the roots of the teeth into place during the second treatment year. 

Thanks to recent dental technology breakthroughs, Fastbraces allows us to accomplish this movement simultaneously in a much shorter period of time. Patients also report less oral pain and discomfort with Fastbraces compared to traditional braces. 

How to Care for Your Fastbraces

A faster treatment time means that your teeth will be less likely to show signs of decay once the brackets are removed if you follow a regular oral hygiene routine. You’ll spend less time going to the dentist and more time enjoying your new smile.

In order to prevent damaging your Fastbraces and your new smile, you’ll want to follow a few guidelines to keep your teeth free of decay and your treatment plan on track. Keep your smile healthy with these easy tips:

  • Avoid candy or snacks which are hard, sticky, crunchy, or chewy such as caramel or bubblegum because they can damage your brackets, wires, or rubber bands.
  • Never chew ice, and watch out for popcorn, nuts, candies with nuts inside, and peanut candies in a hard-shell.
  • Prevent cavities by limiting your sugar intake
  • Brush carefully around all of your brackets and wires, focusing on places where your teeth meet your gums and where your braces attach to your teeth.
  • Wear a mouthguard when playing sports to protect your lips and cheeks 
  • Rinse between meals to wash away any leftover food particles
  • Floss using either a floss threader or a Waterpik to get those hard to reach areas

We know you’re excited to see the results of your new perfect teeth–just be sure to follow a regular oral hygiene routine and any other recommendations by Dr. Jackson.

Is everyone a candidate for Fastbraces?

Most people are eligible to receive Fastbraces. If you’re interested in straightening your teeth quickly and comfortably, schedule a consultation with Dr. Jackson by calling (201) 487-7030

During the consultation, Dr. Jackson will review your oral health, determine your eligibility, and provide you with a customized treatment plan to fit your needs. 

How is Fastbraces different from other quick systems and traditional braces?

Fastbraces start by moving the root of the teeth at the beginning of the treatment. Once the root is in position, the tooth is straight. This is achieved using a square wire as opposed to the traditional round wire which is unable to torque the roots.

The triangular design of the brackets gently moves the crown and root of the teeth simultaneously, requiring less time than traditional braces.

Will I need to wear a retainer after Fastbraces treatment?

In order to maintain the new position of your teeth, you’ll need to wear a retainer following Fastbraces treatment. You’ll typically wear the retainer for eight hours a day for a few months unless Dr. Jackson recommends otherwise. 

This helps ensure that your teeth won’t return to their original position, allowing you to get the most out of your treatment.

Are Fastbraces safe?

Absolutely! Adults and children have enjoyed the benefits of Fastbraces since they were designed in 1992. The inventor saw a need for a newer kind of braces that could achieve similar results to traditional braces without the risks involved with wearing them for longer periods of time.

Braces are typically worn for two to three years and it can be difficult to clean in all the hard to reach areas. When plaque builds up and turns to tartar, cavities can form. Fastbraces make it easy to keep your smile healthy while enjoying increased comfort and faster results.

What should I do if I break or damage my Fastbraces?

If you break or damage your Fastbraces, be sure to contact our office right away by calling (201) 487-7030. You’ll want to avoid trying to fix the braces on your own because this could cause more damage to the appliance and require additional work.
