The biggest question for a child or adult who may need braces would probably be "How quickly can i get them off?"



While There are no miracle shortcuts in Orthodontics, Fastbraces Technology is different by Design, which allows for treatment time to be measured in months, not years like regular Orthodontics.



The old braces are usually square in shape and typically move the crown of the tooth in the first year and the root of the tooth towards its final position in the second year, thus requiring about two years of treatment. Fastbraces technology gently allows for movement of the roots and teeth towards their final position from the onset of treatment, this completing treatment from 3 months to about a year (depending on the case). 


Fastbraces technology typicall works with just one orthodontic wire from start to finish, whereas conventional braces usually require a series of wires and tightening procedures. Fastbraces technology uses a special square super-elastic nickel-titanium wire which is activated by the special design of the braces. This dynamic wire helps upright the whole tooth using the natural temperature of the mouth in just one stage. 


Minimal Discomfort 

University research has shown that Fastbraces technology has low mean fricitonal forces, a clear-cut reduction in sliding friction and pain reduction with fitting front and back teeth together. Thousands of patients have been treated over the past 20 years


(Research carried out by leading U.S, Europe and South American Univerisites)


Minimal Retainer Wear

After treatment, the patient will start out by wearing the retainers every night during a normal 8 hour sleep period or just in the shower for 15-20 minutes as per Dentists Instructions.

Within a year, and from then on, the patient may find that they will only need to wear their retainers for a few minutes every day.
