Waterford Family Dental Care is proud to be Waterford’s premier dental office to offer the amazing Fastbraces® Technology. Call or email us to discover how Dr. Parekh can give you a gorgeous smile that you can love. Fastbraces have several unique characteristics that are causing them to gain popularity over traditional types of braces. Fastbraces were developed by an orthodontist in Texas and are very popular in that area of the country. Fastbraces have been tested and proven safe for children and adults for the past 20 years!
The first unique characteristic of Fastbraces is that they are designed to straighten teeth and correct your bite in just 3 months to a year. They have this unique ability due to their different design. Old technology braces are usually square in shape and typically move the top of the tooth in the first year and the root of the tooth the second year, thus requiring at lest 2 years of braces. Fastbraces are triangular in shape and gently allow the top and the root of the tooth to move at the same time. Therefore, Fastbraces can safely do in one year what slower braces require two years.
A great way to think about this newer technology is to compare it to traveling. If someone were going to travel to California they could drive and it would take a day. Another option would be to fly to California and get there in a couple of hours. Fastbraces is like an airplane, allowing your teeth to straighten faster because of their amazing technology.
Many people assume Fastbraces will be painful because they move teeth faster. This is not true! Flying a plane is not more painful than driving a car, it’s just faster. In fact, university studies have shown Fastbraces to be less sensitive than traditional braces.
The second unique characteristic of fastbraces is the cost. Fastbraces cost less than slower braces. The average cost of traditional braces is about $6,000. Invisible braces tend to cost more and take longer. Fastbraces cost under $4,000 for the average case.

Dr. Shlom and the staff are very patient and knowledgeable. He was extremely patient, calming and quick with my nervous son’s tooth extraction. I love the atmosphere and the care that my child receives here.Lynell McKay Doyle
Honestly the best dentist around i have seen all 3. Although you may have to wait it is well worth the time spent! They have helped me over come so many fears and helped me get back on track with a healthy oral lifestyle! Love each and every one of the staff!Chelsea Stothers
I got some work done on Monday. First time visit. I was not expecting to get the work done that day at all! Dr. Shlom and his team were great! I got my mail today and received a hand written letter from Dr. Shlom saying I did great and hoped I wasn’t in too much pain. Also if I needed anything to give him a call. Let’s just say he now has my husband and I as clients for life!Heidi Tottingham
I was terrified about all the Root Canal stories. As mine was going on, the Doc stopped & I asked how much longer (waiting for this so called pain) & he said “We are done”! I was amazed. They worked with me on payments, are always friendly but unfortunately, I have moved out of the area & have NOT got my teeth cleaned & will not do so until I can get to this place…….I have had to many issues in my life with Dentists & now I found a GOOD one, I will wait! Thank you all & hope to see you soon. S.K.Shawn Bird-Kowalske
Great dental office, have been going there for years. My wife has gone there since she was little and now our kids (8 and 6) go as well. And they have no fear of going to this office.Terrence Williams
