Fast! (Treatment times range from 3 months to about a year.)
Fastbraces® Technology typically works with just one orthodontic wire from start to finish, whereas old 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. Now, treatment time can be measured in months instead of years!
Twenty years of history, and thousands of consecutively treated patients and university research, have shown that Fastbraces® are not only safe but offer many additional benefits to traditional braces. Patients oftentimes experience less discomfort and there are no more risks with Fastbraces® than those associated with traditional braces. Additionally, the fact that the braces are on for less time means that there is possibly less chance of tooth decay due to improper oral hygiene.
Fastbraces® Technology is very affordable in most cases because treatment typically takes just a few visits at the dental health clinic. Fewer dentist visits mean less money spent, less petrol used getting to and from the dental clinic and less time off school or work.
